Dean V. Thompson, super-
vising principal of the Seroe
Colorado School at Lago, did
just that. Since 1959 he has
spent four to six weeks of his
summer vacation at the New
York University every year
(except 1966). Last year he
turned in his thesis which was
approved in August. On Fri-
day, January 16, 1970 he suc-

examining board of the New

Mr. Thompson will become Dr.

His thesis is titled: "The

This Liberian tanker was the first to dock (Jan. 29) at the
West Pier that was reconstructed in 70 days.

Group of Lago Men Help Rebuild

West Pier in Record Time: 70 Days

In 70 days, the former Gas-
oline Dock No. 1 has been
completely reconstructed from
a wooden structure into a new
steel and concrete pier. Hence-
forth the pier will be called
West Pier.
Dismantling work on the old
Gasoline Dock started Novem-
ber 19, 1969. Actual construc-
tion of the new facility start-
ed December 8 last year while
the project was ready for use
on January 28, 1970.
Although scheduled for com-
pletion in 41/ months, the

Assistant Operator Napoleon Wester receives a FIs. 50 check
from E. A. Eriksen, Process Foreman-Utilities, for winning
the safety slogan contest. His slogan was: "Think Safety,
Act Safety and Enjoy '70". Looking on are (I to r): Safety
Adviser E. A. Beaujon, Shift Foreman F. Bebrout, and
Refining Division Supt. J. F. Mote.

West Pier was completed two
months earlier and at a lower
cost than the original estimate
of $500,000.
The new pier, which will be
able to accommodate tankers
up to 27,000 tons, will help as-
sure safer operations because
of its fireproof structure and
improved hose handling facili-
ties built as part of the struc-
While the two existing
mooring cells will be used, the
pier includes a new 35 feet
long, 16 feet wide, hose handl-
ing structure with a new con-
crete slab deck, new loading
manifold, pipe bank and new
stern mooring dolphin.
Connected to the pier are
some seven product lines to
load low-lead naphthas, kero-
sene, gas oil, diesel oil and
fuel oil. Drinking water and
ship's bunkers will also be
available at the pier.
The West Pier has been
equipped with deballasting
facilities and slop recovery
system to control water pol-
A special feature to mini-
mize hose transfer operations

Lago Provides Bunker Facilities

At H-Dock in Oranjestad Harbor

To assist in providing max-
imum bunker facilities for the
Oranjestad Harbor, Lago at
the end of last month complet-
ed the installation of bunker
lines at H-Dock. This was the
only dock which could not sup-
ply bunkers to the increasing
number of tourist and freight
ships calling at Oranjestad.
Completed in a record time
of about three weeks, the pro-
ject included laying a pipe
bank of four lines, 860 feet
long, consisting of one 10-inch
fuel oil line; one 8-inch marine
diesel oil line; one 4-inch gas-
oil line and one 14-inch air
Built at a cost of approxim-
ately $40,000, the work was
carried out under direction of
project leader Carlos Bislip of

Chemical toilet units were placed in use the first time in
Aruba recently by Parsons Corporation on the HDS Project.
They, are approved by the U.S. Dept. of Health for use in all
50 states and foreign, government sponsored, construction
projects on locations where pressured running water or
plumbing facilities are not available. Every second day a
special tank truck pumps out the waste and replaces it with
fresh chemical disinfectant. The units are cleaned and
scrubbed inside daily by a trained sanitation crew. At pre-

future as the number of employees increases.
