A new concept in a supervis-
ory development program was
recently introduced in the Effect-
ive Supervision Program attend-
ed by seventy-two office and
plant supervisors. Formerly call-
ed the Effective Management
Program, this course has now
been revised and updated to al-
low supervisors to better analyze
job problems and to become
more proficient in handling them
through group discussions.
To achieve this, questionnaires
were sent out to the participants
a few weeks in advance to be
used as part of the course. The
program was divided into two
phases, with a five-week span
between Phase I and Phase II.
The participants were separated

followed the sessions during the
two consecutive weeks.
During the sessions held in
Room 200 A and B in the Gen-

Epoxy-Coated Tanks 374 and 574

Assure Top Quality Jet Fuels

On the outside, the new
200,000-barrel tanks 374 and 574
may look like other similar tanks
of their size, 150 feet in dia-
meter and 64 feet high. How-
ever, they are special in several
ways. First of all, these two
tanks are being internally prov-
ided with a special coating for
the bottoms and the shell plates.
After sandblasting to "white me-
tal", the inside of the tanks up
to the roof has been provided
with a white epoxy coating
system selected to minimize in-
ternal rust formation. This spe-
cial interior treatment will help
assure the storage and supply
to customers of top quality kero
jet fuels, meeting required milli-
pore color specification.

job is done by the Aruba Paint-

the two tanks is approximately
FIs. 1,200,000. They are part of
the Kerosene-Jet Fuel Handling
Facilities, which will also in-
clude the installation of two ad-
ditional drums for clay filtering,
two for salt drying and two high
capacity clay filter feed pumps.
The new clay filters and salt
driers supplement existing fac-
ilities and will allow salt dry-
ing and clay filtering of Lago's

The two tanks also have other
improvements, such as concave
bottoms, so that any deposits or
water will collect in the cen-
ter and can be drained out of
the tank and not mixed with the
product. For fire protection, the
two tanks will be surrounded by
separate fire walls, while foam
lines will run to the nearby road
outside of the fire walls where
a foam pumper can be conven-
iently and safely connected.

The two tanks also had a
long history before their "laun-
ching pad" could have been in-
stalled, as some 1600 holes had
to be drilled for dynamite blast-
ing the hard coral to prepare
their foundations. The blasting
work started in April this year
while work on the tank pads be-
gan in May this year.

On the northeast shore, two distinct rock formation levels can be
seen, as left by the receding sea perhaps millions of years ago.

E Hoolberg (na drechl) segun algun queremento ta uno di e formacioi

Aruba's Geological Origin as Told by Unknown Author

When or how the island cal-
led "Aruba" first lifted its mass
of coral, diorite rock and sand
above the waters of the Carib-
bean remains largely a matter of
conjecture. Some have said that
it is a part of the rim of a gi-
gantic volcano and others that
it is a mass resting on a pedes-
tal somewhat in mushroom
fashion. Geologists who have
studied the matter extensively
have reached the conclusion
that the island is the result of
a batholitic action and actually
the top of a mountain with num-
erous diorite boulders left bare
after millions of years of soil
erosion. This makes it probable
that the island is a product of
the same mighty travail of na-
ture that gave origin to the
Rockies and the Andes.
Geologists also agree that
violent subterranean movements
have lifted and submerged the
island at several widely separ-
ated intervals of time. When a
well was drilled many years ago
near Oranjestad, pieces of palm
tree wood were brought up from
a depth of 800 feet, indicating
that the surface was then at
that point much higher above
sea level than it is at present.
Along the north shore, three dis-
tinct shore lines are discernible
and in some places five, giving
evidence that there have been
at least five distinct movements
In different upward move-
ments, which gave the island its
present contour, some heights
to appear above the rolling seas
are such points as Yamanota
(617 ft.), Hooiberg (541 ft.) and
Alto Vista (236 ft.). Hoolberg is
the most conspicuous of these
because water, wind, and wea-

their have given it an inverted
cowbell shape that towers pro-
minently above the surrounding
terrain. In fact, the town of San-
ta Cruz, about a mile east from
its base, covers ground that is
nearly on sea level. The pre-
sence of fossils, coral, diorite
rock with varying mineral con-
tent, and wind and water-carved
tunnels and caves on the lesser
heights (see picture of Cana-
shito) all display convincing evi-
dence that those were once
beneath the surface of the sea.
Aruba is still affected by
earth movements. In 1937, for
instance, there were two very
definite earthquake shocks
which, although originating in
the Paraguana Peninsula, lifted
the island some inches higher
above the surface of the sur-
rounding sea.
This lifting is evidenced by
the appearance of new shore
lines, the drying up of certain
old blowholes along the north
shore and the opening of new
ones among the coral reefs on
the south shore, also by the
more shallow waters of the la-
goons, and by the exposed roots
of the mangrove trees that grow
along the shores.
The most noticeable of the
pre-historic shore lines is that
which begins at Punta Basora,
the extreme northeastern tip of
the island, and runs irregularly
northwestward about a half mile
from and parallel to the sea. In
some places, stone cliffs from
10 to 30 feet high with water
carved indentations, caves and
tunnels at their bases indicate
that mighty waves once beat
against them.
At Punta Basora, huge blocks
of the rugged, rocky shore line

have toppled toward the sea. At
the water's edge, great masses
of red and greenish limestone,
highly fossilized and indicating
the youth of this coastline, may
be seen.
Only at the extreme north-
western end of the island does
the shore line taper into sandy
beaches along the water's edge.
A few shifting sand dunes are
found along the northern coast
near Fontein and east of Cali-
fornia near West Punt.
Along the southern shore one
also finds further evidence that
the island has had several shore
lines. This is quite noticeable
near the Seroe Colorado Resi-
dential Area and near the Span-
ish Lagoon. A coral reef extend-
ing brokenly about a half mile
off shore for almost the length
of the island provides protected
harbors at San Nicolas, Oranje-
stad and Barcadera, and form-
erly at Savaneta until the lagoon
there began to fill with sand.
Because the water outside the
reef is from 40 to 60 fathoms
deep, ships from all points of
the compass can now find an-
chorage in the splendid harbor
that has been developed off San
Nicolas by the Lago Refinery.
At the eastern end of the is-
land, caves and water-carved
tunnels may be found. In these
a phosphate deposit was found
indicating that a mineralized
sandy beach, well fertilized with
guano, existed there centuries
ago and was later covered with
coral and rock.
Midway of the island on the
southern shore is the Spanish
Lagoon, which at one time may
have extended across a large
part of the island through the
valley in which the town of San-

From this Lagoon westward
the southern shore line is very

(Horses Bay), so named because
hundreds of horses were landed
there from the Spanish Main for
reshipment to Jamaica. Beyond

M & C Tradesmen Do Major Surgery On Some Parts

Since September 25th and
continuing for several weeks, the
tradesmen of Mechanical's Main-
tenance & Construction Division
are tackling Pipestill No. 7 in a
major "mechanical operation" to
put the unit back in top shape.
The turnaround work comprises
cleaning and repairing of several
towers and nearly 30 condenser
and exchanger tube bundles,
repairs to piping, valves and
pumps and other maintenance
work. It involves all the skills of
M&C, both in the unit area and
in the Central Shops.

But one of the major work in-
cludes a "surgery" to the 90-ft.
high, 40-ft. diameter cylindrical
furnace of the pipestill. The M&C
employees had to clean the in-
ternals of the furnace and re-
move some 150 tons of insula-
tion and fire bricks which lined
the furnace wall. Then follows
the installation of a new wall
using a new procedure at Lago.
This involves the pumping in of
an 80-ft. high, 6-inch thick lin-
ing in the furnace using a spe-
cial high temperature insulating
refractory. This refractory is a
quick-drying material resembling
white cement which is prepared
in a special mixer and is pump-
ed into place through a 2-inch
hose and nozzle against a com-
plex form. This form will be left
in place and will be consumed
in the furnace during the "cur-
ing" period. The new technique
used for the wall construction
was jointly developed by the Jo-
seph McCollum Company of
Houston, Texas, and Lago per-

of Pipestill No. 7
sonnel. The pouring of the lin-
ing is handled by M&C forces,
under the direction of four tech-
nicians of this U.S. company,
and all forming was handled by
The M&C tradesmen this time
are trying a special tool, a hy-
draulic bolt tensioner, to tighten
the bolts on the heads of the tar
crude exchangers to help pre-
vent leaks. This device can be
used to pull or tension up to
four studs hydraulically up to a
pre-determined stress level, af-
ter which the nuts can be tight-
ened by hand. By using two to
four units, the exchanger's bolt-
ed connections will be evenly
tensioned and the leakage ten-
dency will be reduced. At the
crude exchangers hydraulic
pressures up to 7000 Ibs. are
used which will give permanent
tension of approximately 45,000
pounds per square inch on the

To expedite the work, more
than one hundred M&C men and
fourteen supervisors are assign-
ed to the turnaround, with some
groups working the dark shifts
as well. The overall job is in
charge of the Turnaround Zone,
under direction of Zone Super-
visor Luis Anjie and some twel-
ve Mechanical supervisors. Plan-
ner Luis Giel prepared the pre-
liminary plans and Critical Path
Plan and is also doing the daily
With the turnaround complet-
ed, Pipestill No. 7 will be able
to resume the process of some
100,000 barrels of crude a day.

On the extreme northwestern

at Arashi many beautiful shells,
large pieces of coral and other

be found. (This is a protected

Thus approximately 120 above

the shores of the Paraguana
Peninsula, at 7003'20 WL and
12027'25" NL lies the island of
ARUBA, approximately 19.6 mi-
les long from tip to tip and 6
miles at its widest point. In an
airplane, one can easily obtain
a bird's eye view of its approx-
imately 70 square miles of sur-
face, a view which is deceptive
because the island appears
somewhat barren and uninviting
from the sky. Yet within its
shores live peoples from many
different races and places and
an exuberant spirit of hospitality
soon impresses itself upon the
visitor to Aruba: "The Golden
Gem of the Caribbean".
