thirty weeks. Although designed
for home study, the course
chapters were explained weekly

also covered metals testing and
the behavior of metals in var-

soluclonnan qulmico pa unldadnan dl HDS.

After mechanical completion
of the HDS units and when pre-
startup work began on all the
fourteen new units and there-
after, many of the personnel of
the Laboratories were quietly
contributing their share to each
successful startup.
In fact, the lab assistants, lab
technicians and supervisors
were handling thousands of
samples and tests to make the
startups possible. The result of
their efforts helped give the
"Go" signal for each unit.
Many of the tests were new
and required the use of several
new lab instruments on which
the personnel of the Analytical
and Inspection Sections had to
be trained. It was the duty of
the Analytical Section to devel-
op and set up these new test
methods and procedures.
Some of the tests were very
critical for a safe startup and
operation. At the Hydrogen
Plants, for instance, a large num-
ber of tests were run to verify
that the sulfur content of the
feed was less than 1.0 parts per
million. This sulfur testing was
done using special sampling
techniques which had to be dev-
eloped, and using a new Wick-
bold oxygen-hydrogen combus-
tion sulfur apparatus. Incorrect
test results could cause severe
damage to the high-cost catal-
yst. Also very important were
the thousands of tests made on
the boiler feed water, deaerated
water, steam condensates, boi-
ler water and process water on

the Hydrogen Plants.
Other tests for the hydrogen
units included testing the cata-
carb solutions using a new po-
tentiograph or automatic titro-
meter, foaming test on polypro-
pylene pall rings used in the
catacarb towers, and analyzing
gas mixtures using the gas
For the startup of the other
units on the HDS site, numer-
ous tests had to be performed
on the various streams of the
Vacuum Pipestill and the Gas
Oil, Kero and Naphtha Hydro-
finers, such as metals analysis
and vacuum distillations. Many
tests were run also on sour wa-
ter samples and MEA solutions
to help control corrosion.
For the startup of the three
new Tosi boilers installed at
Powerhouse No. 1 a large num-
ber of tests had to be perform-
ed by the Lab personnel.
To provide round the clock
service, the Analytical Section
had to switch to three-shift ope-
ration to assist the Process
startup personnel.
With the HDS units now in
their initial run, the Analytical
Section will continue assisting
in special tests, while most of
the routine work will be grad-
ually taken over by the inspec-
tion Section personnel.
As with other products, the
Lab personnel now have some
special end products to give
their quality mark to: Several
grades of low sulfur fuel oil.

Bucuti Yacht ClubMembers Now Have

Place to Relax After Fishing Trip

The over 100 members of the
Bucuti Yacht Club now have a
club building for relaxation af-
ter a fishing trip or for social
activities. The 80 ft. long, 30
ft. wide building, with a patio
almost equal in size and locat-
ed just south of the airport
building was officially opened by
Communications Minister L.
Chance Saturday evening, Sep-
tember 4.

The motor behind the club
project was the Club's Commo-
dore Jossy Hunt, Lago's post-
master, who owns a 24-ft. twin-
engine cabin cruiser. Assisting
him were many club members
and the other board members:
Vice Commodore Han Steenhui-
sen, Secretary Jacobo Coronel,
Treasurer Herman Somers, As-
sistant Secretary Ramon Ri-
chardson, Assistant Treasurer
Pepe Fradl and board members
Maximo Saladin Jr., George Na-
dall and Aart in 't Veld.

Started in March this year,
the building cost approximately
FIs. 30,000. It includes a kit-
chen, storeroom, office space,
two rest rooms, a 3-shower
bathroom, bar and lounge, and
a large patio.

Established since March 1968
and officially constituted in
1969, the Bucuti Yacht Club be-
gan building its piers at the
site (near Camacuri) in 1969.
The piers with total length of
300 feet offer anchorages to
more than a dozen yachts in
14 feet of water. The site also
offers possibility for expansion.
The facilities of the Bucuti
Yacht Club are centrally locat-
ed, close to the Oranjestad and
Barcadera harbors, and with
unobstructed approach channels
to the piers.

The official inauguration pro-
gram included a reception, fol-
lowed by dancing.

Modification to Pipestills 9 & 10

Requires F. 8,000,000 Investment

To utilize the full potential of
existing fractionation towers at
Nos. 9-10 Pipestills, several mo-
difications are being made to
these two units. The total invest-
ment will be about FIs. 8,000,000.
New equipment being installed
in the modification includes fur-
naces, condensers, exchangers,
pumps, and piping, instrument-
ation and electrical facilities. In
addition, existing towers are be-
ing re-trayed. Most conspicuous
in the modification are two new
vertical, cylindrical furnaces.
Foundations and other prep-
aratory work began in April this
year with the units still running.
Construction work on the crude
circuit of the units began on
August 1, simultaneously with a
scheduled turnaround of the
complete units, including the
visbreaker sections.
The engineering and con-
struction of the project is being
carried out by A. G. McKee &
Co., assisted by subcontractors.
The project provides employ-
ment for over 300 men.
The original process design
was done by Esso Research &
