James M. Ballenger Comments

On Lago Activities during Visit

Mr. J. M. Ballenger, former
president of Lago and the
current manager of Creole's
Refining Department, visited
the refinery on Monday, Nov-
ember 23, to attend a meeting
of the Lago Board of Direc-
tors. While here, he also at-
tended a luncheon with the
Management Committee..Some
of his observations during this
visit are summarized below:
On Safety: "Everyone at Lago
should be very proud of the
record achieved to date. I hope
this can be continued through
the end of the year and into

the Thrift account of each
participant. The Thrift earn-
ings represent the money
which the total Thrift capital
earned in a year from invest-
ments in high quality securi-


1971 as well." Mr. Ballenger
further said: "Similar results
are possible in off-the-job sa-
fety, and especially in traffic
safety, if everyone devotes the
same attention to safety off
the job as they do on the job."
(As a matter of fact, a joint
Lago-Esso Marketing island-
wide traffic safety campaign
is now being developed for
On Refinery Construction
Work: "It's always good to
see building activities in a re-
finery. It's a healthy sign. The
work on the HDS project is
quite impressive, but, in addi-
tion, considerable progress has
been made on the visbreaker
furnace project as well."
On Working for Creole: "Ac-
tually it is surprising how
many of my old friends from

Ex-Lago Man G. Arrindell Expands

Service Facilities for Ledeen

Granville L. Arrindell. who
left Lago in 1967 to set up his
Mechanical Repairs Company,
is now the authorized service
representative for Ledeen. A
Textron Company, Ledeen has
supplied instrumentation equip-
ment for many of the new
projects at Lago, including
the HDS project.
Assisting Granville in mak-
ing his company qualify as a
service organization for Le-
deen equipment was Cliff Ter-
ry, Ledeen's sales program
manager. Granville's Mech-
anical Repairs, which has 13
employees, is now a contractor
to Lago for maintenance and
repair of Ledeen equipment.
Granville's company is also a
sub-contractor for Parsons, the
main contractor for Lago's
HDS project.
Mr. Terry said that Gran-
ville's company is now well es-
tablished and can indepen-
dently render service for Le-
deen to Lago and other com-
panies in the Caribbean, such
as Creole-Amuay. Therefore,
Mr. Terry is returning to the
Ledeen factory in Pacoima,
California, after a few years
in Aruba.
Granville recently started
on a 2100 square foot addition
to his machine shop. The new
building will also contain a
600 square foot second floor
as office space. Also, additio-
nal machines will be purchas-

ed to provide more complete
machining facility in this ex-
pansion project.
Owner and general manager
of Mechanical Repairs, Gran-
ville worked for 21-1 years
with Lago and had been a su-
pervisor of the Machine Shop
for about five years. In start-
ing his business he was as-
sisted by the Lago Small Bus-
iness Committee in purchasing
some surplus machines.
The service which his com-
pany provides includes the in-
stallation and repair of mech-
anical, electrical, pneumatic
and hydraulic equipment. In
addition to machining, his
shop is also equipped for
handling welding and painting
On the occasion of his visit
to Ledeen's operations in Aru-
ba, Mr. Sam Gray, vice presi-
dent and general manager of
Ledeen, and Cliff Terry were
hosts to a hospitality dinner
for a group of 75 Lago em-
ployees and Parsons' staff.
The highlight of the evening
at the Esso Club was a pre-
sentation by Cliff Terry of
NASA slides of the Apollo 10
and 11 moon shots. Mr. Terry
pointed out many comparisons
of similar tasks required to
construct and operate a new
plant, such as the HDS facili-
ties, that closely match the
operation and control of a trip
to the moon

Granville Arrindell's shop and office addition is about four
times his present shop space. The 2100 square foot new shop
space and a 600 square foot second floor office will cost
about FIs. 80,000.
E adicion pa shop y oficina di Granville Arrindell ta como
cuatro bez mas grand cu actual espacio di shop. E shop
nobo di 2100 pia cuadra y un oficina na segundo piso di 600
pia cuadra lo costa como FIs. 80,000.

The two Ledeen top men pose here with one of the mainten-
ance crews of Granville's Mechanical Repairs (I to r): Cliff
Terry, Ledeen's sales program manager; Sam Gray, Le-
deen's vice president and general manager; Miss Patricia

Tank 162 Gets Polyester Bottom;

New Material is Non-Corrosive

One of the Lago tanks
which was provided with a
Polyester non-corrosive and
leakproof bottom recently was
Tank 162. It is located in the
crude field area of the tank
In about four weeks, two
layers of reinforced fiberglass,
bonded together with a poly-
ester resin providing a tough
and solid coating, was laid as
a new %-inch thick plastic
bottom for the 80,000-barrel
crude tank.

The work was performed
under supervision of Tresco
Inc. of Oklahoma under a
one-year guarantee. This com-

pany has already provided
more than 3,000 tanks
throughout the world with
this plastic type bottom.
A crew of six men of Ars-
ton Corporation did the job
under supervision of a Tresco
representative. Before apply-
ing the resin and fiberglass
material, the bottom surface
had to be sandblasted to
white metal.
The polyester material is
not only corrosion resistant
and strong, but the overall
cost is also lower than the
cost of a new steel bottom,
says Franklin E. Dowling of
Mechanical Engineering, who
was charged with the project.


The 117-foot diameter tank required 20,000 square feet of Some spots that need special treatment are the bases of the
fiberglass material. Two layers of fiberglass were laid to I-beam supports in the tank. Arston Corporation personnel
provide a new plastic type bottom. are doing the job.
