G.M. Nicholson appointed

Manpower Planning &

Recruiting Coordinator

Anticipating this transition in both the MPT and the wage
ranks and recognizing the need for lead time to train new
employees, a number of steps have already been taken.


A new position Manpower Planning & Recruiting Coordinator
has been established in the Employee Relations Department
and G M Nicholson formerly in Technical Department has
been named to this position
A known fact about Lago is that a large proportion of our
workforce (over 40%) were hired in the mid-1940's and will be
approaching retirement sometime within the next ten years.
One of the most critical challenges to Lago is to manage this
attrition of our experienced workforce without a loss of
operating efficiency
George's duties will be to coordinate all manpower planning
for Lago and to develop programs needed to successfully
manage the forth-coming manpower transition.
Factors to be considered in planning for the future are the
needs of the Lago refinery in the years ahead, for instance:
What type of refinery will it be and what type of people
will be needed to operate it

What resources will be available from the educational
system, what programs of study will they have received
and how compatible are these programs with Lago's

What is the likelihood of meeting Lago's needs from this
pool of new talent given alternative employment
opportunities that may exist on Aruba in the decade

Lago staff on several occasions conducted information
sessions for students and faculty at the Colegio
Arubano. These sessions will be expanded to include
other schools in the near future.

A summer employment program for university students
about to enter theirthird and fourth year in Lago-related
disciplines was introduced in 1981. This gives Lago and
the student an opportunity to get to know the
challenges of working for a large, progressive
Lago continues to participate in the co-op programs for
engineering students and this participation will be
The Lago Educational Assistance Program (LEAP) was
reinstituted at Lago to permit qualified employees to
seek university degrees. We now have 5 employees on
this program.
Campus recruiting has been intensified and special
interview teams have been sent to the U.S., Curaqao
and Holland to recruit for Lago. In November, Messrs.
G.M. Nicholson and J.M. Lacle interviewed in Holland
and the U.S.A. a total of 35 Antillean students studying

Our aim is to hire about 15 to 20 Antillean college graduates
and about 50 to 70 wage employees per year over the coming
years Additonal actions will be taken as needed to assure
Lago of a trained and effective workforce to meet the business
challenges that lie ahead

Oil Movements & Shipping

Automation Task Force

Since its commissioning more than 12 years ago, the Lago Oil
Movements centralized monitoring and control system has
undergone many changes and has seen a number of limited
upgrading projects Some major parts of the system are now
coming to the end of their useful lives and current operations
are very different from those of the early seventies

Recognizing these shortcomings of theexisting system, Lago
Management formed a Task Force in July 1981 to probe in
depth the problems of our system and to propose
improvements/changes to meet the needs of the future

The members for the Task Force representing the three
departments involved are Bernie Kalis of Process/O M & S,
Tom Paddrik of Technical/P.ED. and Angel Rasmijn of
The Task Force reports to Ken Brook O.M. & S. Division
Superintendent and a nine-member Management Steering

Tom Paddrick, Ben Kalis and Angel Rasmijn checking a pump control

Initially, the goal of the Task Force was simply to study and
develop a plan to repair or replace defective "end elements"
such as motor-operated valves, pump controls, automatic
tank gauges, tank temperature sensors, etc. However, after
some research it became apparent that not only the "end
elements" but also the telemetry system would have to be
considered Also, it became clear that a good pictureofO M &
S. operations for the next years would have to be drawn to
provide a framework for the automation study

Thus, after a lot of considerations, the Task Force's scope was
expanded. First, a long range plan for O.M. & S operations
would be developed and second, an automation system
design would be developed incorporating both parts of the
existing system and new equipment.

Highlights CLEAR 1981

H.D.S. employees stowing away trash where it belongs: In the barrel
and the bucket.

During 1981, CLEAR (Clean Lago Environs Aruba) has
continued to organize, coordinate and steward an action
program to increase the general appearance of the refinery

The program rests on three pillars.

1. Operation Facelift' Beautification, painting,
weedkilling, and other projects, demonstrating
Management's commitment and contribution to a better
looking Lago. In 1981, a painting program was started
aiming at units, buildings, pipebanks, curbing and
railing. As part of this program, CLEAR has tackled the
major traffic routes, the main refinery road from Gate
no. 1 to Gate no. 3, and the north refinery road, during
January and June. All curbs and rails, buildings and
walls, tanks, piping and other structures along these
roads were painted These actions will continue twice a
year in 1982 and onwards to keep up the good looks.
All substations and buildings such as the Lab, ROC,
Mechanical Office Building, GOB, OMCC,
Lunchshelters, etc. were painted. In 1982 the
Mechanical Shops and Storehouse building will be
painted. Many open areas in the refinery have been
leveled and paved e.g. the Hydrogen plants areas. A
start was made in 1981 on a long term weedkilling
program to remove weeds and control their re-growth.
A major undertaking last year was the repaving of the
main refinery road from Gate no. 2 to Gate no. 3 and
construction of new curbing along the road.

2. Training: class-room sessions were conducted by
CLEAR Administrator, Nelo Emerencia, to exchange
ideas and views concerning the CLEAR program, and to
encourage employees to sustain good housekeeping
practices. Employees have reacted very positively to
the CLEAR program and have made valuable
contribution to it.

A video tape with shots at Lago to help in recognizing
untidy situations is being developed and will be used in
training sessions.

3. Internal Efforts: Our CLEAR motto is "maintain-as-
you-go" This is how every employee can contribute to
our goal to have a clean and goodlooking Lago refinery
all the time. To do this each employee must personally
assume the responsibility to keep his area clean, stop
leaving trash behind, remove items such as rags,
paperbags, bolts, nuts, etc

O.M.S. Div. Superintendent Ken Brook cleaning up his tankfarm.

Housekeeping is not someone else's responsibility, it is
each person's responsibility' This is the most important
pillar of the CLEAR program In 1981, our employees
have demonstrated their willingness to clean up their
areas In January, June and December, all 4 Process
Department Divisions organized massive clean-up
programs involving all Process and Mechanical
personnel working in these areas.

The participation and enthusiasm of everybody were
great. The units now are considerably cleaner than in
the past The challenge is to keep them clean at all
times, that is the standard

1981 has been a year of accomplishment We made a step
forward, but now we cannot stand still Operation Faceliftjust
launched the January 1982 CLEAR Action painting again
piping, curbing, railing etc along the Main Refinery Road But
Operation Facelift alone cannot assure further progress As
stated above, the most important contribution is to be made
by YOU by cleaning up your area and by "maintaining-as-
you-go" Together, we will get a clean and good-looking Lago
Refinery, and we deserve it

Puntonan saliente di CLEAR den 1981

Durante 1981. CLEAR (Clear Lago Environs Aruba) a

Tur e substations y edificionan, manera Lab., ROC,
Mechanical Office Building, G.O.B., O.M.C C.,
lugarnan di come, etc. a wordo geverf

Den 1982 e Mechanical Shops y e edificionan di
Storehouse lo wordo geverf. Basta areanan habri den e
refineria a wordo haci pareu y asfalta, por ejemplo e
areanan di Hydrogen Plants

Den 1981 a wordo cuminsa cu un program na termnmo
largo pa mata e yerba malo pa asina kita e yerba malo y
control pa nan no crece atrobe

E areanan di Hydrogen Plant a wordo haci pareuw y asfalta.
Un project grand anja pasa, tabata e ponemento di un
laag di asfalt riba e caminda principal di refineria cu ta
core di Porta no. 2 pa Porta no. 3 ye construction di un
acera nobo canto di e caminda.

2. Entrenamento' Seshionan den klas a wordo conduci
door di Clear Administrator Nelo Emerencia pa
intercambia ideanan y puntonan di vista concerniendo
e program di CLEAR y pa encurasha tur empleadonan
pa mantene e lugar limpi.
E empleadonan a reacciona masha positive riba e
program di Clear y a haci contribucion valioso na e
program .
Un video tape cu vistazos di Lago pa yuda reconoce e
lugarnan desordena a wordo desaroya y lo wordo usa
den seshionan di entrenamento.

3. Esfuerzonan Interno: Nos dicho di Clear ta:
"Mantenshon sigun bo traha".
Di e manera aki cada empleado por contribute na nos
meta pa tin un refineria limpi y bunita henter ora.
Pa hasi esaki cada empleado master asumi
personalmente e responsabilidad pa tene su lugar
limpi. Stop di laga sushi atras, bentaafo cosnan manera
panja sushi, saco di papel, boutnan y moernan.
Limpieza no ta responsabilidad di otro hende e ta
responsabilidad di cada persona.
Esaki ta e pilar di mas important di e program di
Den 1981 nos empleadonan a demostra nan voluntad
pa hasi nan areanan limpi.
Na January, Juni y December tur e 4 divisionan di
Process Department a organisa programanan di
limpieza cu a envolvi tur e personal di Process y
Mechanical cu ta traha den e areanan aki.
E participation yentusiasmo di tur hende tabata grand.
E unidadnan awor ta considerablemente mas limpi cu
den pasado.
E desaflo ta pa mantene nan limpi henter ora, esei ta e
1981 tabata un anja exitoso.
Nos a progress, awor nos no por keda para. Operation Facelift
a caba di lansa e accion di Clear di Januari 1982 pintando
atrobe, e tubonan, aceranan, tubonan di seguridad kanto di
caminda principal di refineria.
Pero Operation Facelift so no por segura un future progress.
Manera nos a bisa caba, e contribution mas important ta
esun dibo, si bo haci bo lugar di trabao limp y mantenesegun
bo traha.
Conjuntamente nos lo hanja un refineria di Lago limpi y



Dealing with

High Blood


A growing number of people know that high blood pressure
leads to strokes and kidney failure
The dangers of high blood pressure are better known. But
some people still have the wrong ideas about this common
illness. Some people confuse high blood pressure "control"
with a cure. There is no cure for high blood pressure To keep
it under control, doctors usually use medication to bring down
the pressure People with high blood pressure can bring their
pressure into the normal range if they follow their doctor's
advice and take medicine every day. If they stop taking their
pills, however, their blood pressure will go up again.

Another wrong idea about high blood pressure is that it only
affects nervous and tense people. The medical term for high
blood pressure is "hypertension". So some people wrongly
assume that only anxious or tense people have high pressure,
while calm and relaxed people have low or normal pressure.
This isn't true. High blood pressure can affect anyone. It is a
physical condition in which the heart and blood vessels are
strained by blood pumping with too much force through the
body. Lawyers, housewives, employees, executives, students,
nurses anyone can have high blood pressure.

Some people think a headache, dizziness, or feeling bad are
telltale signs that blood pressure is up These, too, are wrong.
High blood pressure has no symptoms. In fact, you can feel
fine even though your blood pressure is high. Or, you can
have a headache when your pressure is normal.
That's why those with high blood pressure should take
medicine each day at prescribed times. The medicine must be
taken as prescribed for it to lower your pressure. Ask your
doctor what to do if you miss a dose. Make sure your
prescription doesn't run out. You should treat your high blood
pressure every day, regardless of how you "feel".

In addition to medicine, doctors sometimes tell their blood
pressure patients to watch their weight, cut down on salt,
exercise more, and stop smoking. Some people think they can
choose either to take the medicine or to follow the other
advice. This isn't usually true The advice is meant to be
followed in addition to taking medication The two types of
therapies go together. If you watch your weight, cut down on
salt, exercise more, and do other things your doctor suggests,
it will help the medication to work better. As a possible result,
you may need to take less medicine

Doing the things your doctor has advised to bring your blood
pressure down and keep it there for the rest of your life will
call for making some changes in your life It will not be easy at
first Don't try to do it alone Ask your family and friends to
help you

HBS is often a family affair
Doctors have found that high blood pressure runs in families
There is a chance of more than one member of a family may
have hypertension So if family members learn early on to
watch weight, use less salt, more exercise, and learn how to
deal with high blood pressure, they will avoid future problems
They will be helped as they help you deal with your blood

Involve your family members in helping you. One family
member might be asked to remind you about daily
medication Other family members can help by reminding you
about pill refills, doctor visits, and seeking help from other
health workers such as educators, nutritionists, or dietitians.

You and your family may need to learn about dietchanges.
It will help a lot in asking your family to make changes if they
understand why they are important

Cutting down on salt, high-calorie foods, and food amounts,
shopping wisely for foods low in sodium or calories and using
spices rather than salt or those that are high in sodium can be
worthwhile when the family does these together

Your family also can help you get more exercise, such as
walks, bike riding, swimming, etc.

Friends can help, too. Changes your doctor asked you to
make such as to reduce weight, cut down eating sali,
exercise more, or smoke less and drink less alcohol affect
activities often done among friends. A friend can help you
stick to your doctor's advise

But again, you are the one yourself that is responsible for your
health. Therefore, you have got to decide to,
1) take your prescribed medication
2) reduce your weight if so advised
3) stop smoking
4) reduce alcohol consumption; better yet, do not drink
alcohol at all

y sinja con ta cuida presion halto, nan lo tin beneficio di dje y
evita problemanan den future.

Some of the changes to operations that are under
consideration include
1) Custody Transfer by turbine meter
2) In-line blending
3) Accurate tank gauging
4) Reduction and redistribution of motor operators for valves

By the end of February 1982, a report will be presented
outlining the future plans for 0 M & S operation including all
the proposed changes with their associated benefits to Lago
Some of these improvements have already been added to the

1) How should the telemetry system (mini-computer and

2) What is the best motor operator for valves at Lago?
3) What degree of reliability is necessary?
