EXXON RESTRICTS CAPITALINVEST MENTS

ARUBA ESSO NEWS 1

Lago special projects affected

Due to world-wide market conditions and the uncertain
outlook in the oil industry, Exxon has called on all
affiliates, including Lago, to restrain capital invest-
ments. Most of Lago’s major capital projects planned
during the past few years have been affected by this
restraint. Those projects, estimated to cost over $100
million and planned for execution over a period of five
years, are being overseen by the Special Projects Depart-
ment established in September of 1980.

In March of 1981, Lago signed a contract with Procon
Incorporated, an international engineering/construc-
tion company, to be the prime contractor for the engi-
neering, procurement and construction of these special
projects.

These projects included a Grassroots Butane Isomeriza-

tion Unit, the Utilities Modernization Project, Visbrea-
ker Debottlenecking projects, and a large number of
energy conservation projects resulting from an energy
conservation survey conducted by ER&E in early 1980.
* Upon receipt of the capital restraint notice from Exxon,
as well as changes in other economic factors, the total
budget for these special projects was reduced to about
$60 million over the same time period (through 1985). At
this level of capital expenditure it is more cost effective
for Lago to assume complete responsibility for construc-
tion of these projects, utilizing local contractors directly,
rather than through the prime contractor,” said Marci-
ano Angela, Manager of the Special Projects
Department.

EXXON TA REDUCI CAPITAL DI INVERSION

Proyectonan di Lago a wordo afecta

Como resultado di e condicion mundial di mercado y e
incertidumbre die industria petrolera, Exxon a haci un
yamada riba tur su afiliadonan, incluyendo Lago, pa
pone un restriccion riba inversion di capital.

Mayoria di e projectonan cu ta exigi mas hopi capital, cu
a wordo planea durante e ultimo anjanan, a wordo
afecta pa e restriccion aki. E proyectonan ey, calcula na
un gasto di mas di $100 miyon y planea pa ehecucion den
un periodo di cinco anja, ta wordo maneha pa Special
Projects Department, cual a ser estableci na September
1980.

Na Maart 1981, Lago a firma un contract cu Procon
Incorporated, un compania internacional di ingenieria y
construccion, pa ta e contratista principal di ingenieria,
percuracion y construccion di e proyectonan special aki.
E proyectonan ta inclui un Unidad nobo pa Isomeriza-
cion di Butano, un Proyecto di Modernizacion di Uti-
lidad, Proyecto di Conversacion di Visbreaker, y un
cantidad di proyectonan pa conservacion dienergia cua
wordo planea despues cu un enquesta di conservacion di
energia a wordo conduci pa ER& E na comienzo di 1980.
*Ora cu Lago a ricibi notificacion di Exxon pa restringi
capital, y ora cu cambionan a tuma lugar den economia,
€ presupuesto total di e proyectonan special a wordo
baha te cu $60 miyon durante e mesun periodo (te cu
1985).

Na e€ nivel aki di gastonan di capital, a resulta di ta mas
economico pa Lago tuma tur responsabilidad pa con-
struccion di e proyectonan, usando contratistanan local
directamente, en vez di traha via e contratista principal

jects Department, a bisa.

LSF awards seven,
and renews 54 grants

The Lago Scholarship Foundation, in its 26th year of
existence, has granted seven new scholarships and rene-
wed 54 grants for the 1982/1983 school year.

Up to this year, Lago has made it possible for 441 persons
to acquire a profession abroad, starting with the first 40
grants awarded at the Foundation’s birth in 1957.

All applicants for Lago scholarships are subjected to the
following criteria: results of the Lago test and the Scho-
lastic Aptitude Test, the applicant’s scholastic record,
whether the chosen college university is accredited and
professionally recognized, whether the desired course of
study would fulfill Aruba’s needs, and the applicant’s
financial need.

*Based on the above, the LSF Board, consisting of six
members, decides which applicants have the most poten-
tial for successfully completing their studies.

As long as children of Lago employees - who meet the
above criteria - have a good chance of succeeding in their
course of study, they will be given priority over non-
employee’s children,” said Carlos de Cuba, Secretary-
/Treasurer of the LSF.

During his study, the student has to maintain acceptable
grades as stipulated in the academic standards set by the
Foundation.

~The only other obligation the recipients of Lago scho-
larships have is to return to Aruba upon graduation and
work here for a minimum of three years. They are not
required to work at Lago, although it is hoped they will
apply at Lago upon completion of their studies,” said
Carlos.

The new recipients of the 1982/1983 Lago scholarship
awards are as follows: Mabel Arends, daughter of Eve-
raldo Arends of the Controller's Department, Chemical
Engineering, Tulane University; Willem Brinkman, son
of Willem Brinkman of the Industrial Security Depart-
ment, Electrical Engineering, University of South
Carolina; Edward Oduber, son of annuitant Hendrik
Oduber, Chemical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic
Institute; Harry Le Grand, son of annuitant Nivola Le
Grand, Electrical Engineering, Polytechnic Institute of
New York; Yat Ming Than, Mechanical Engineering,
Worcester Polytechnic Institute; Arturo Croes, Electri-
cal Engineering, University of Hartford; and Rene de
Meza, Mechanical Engineering, HTS Haarlem.

On behalf of Lago, congratulations and success!

OPEC

|__A look into the 80’s

In the last two issues, the background, birth and development of
OPEC was presented.
The following part is the conclusion of that series of articles.

In response to this problem (the breakdown of OPEC’s
unified pricing system, resulting from the Iranian Revo-
lution in 1979) and to the fierce upward pressure of
demand, and in an effort to narrow the price gap within
the organization, the price of Arabian light was raised
several times in 1979 and up to $/B 28 as of May 1, 1980.
In November 1980 the Arab light was increased to $/B
32, while in October 1981 it went to $/B 34.

These price increases coincided with a general economic
recession that caused some decline in product demands.
More important, however have been the results of the oi
consuming countries’ efforts for conservation and substi-
tution of the overpriced products resulting in a tota
world demand drop of 8% in 1981.

OPEC in 1982

The organization started 1982 expecting a reversal o
1981’s crude oil demand slump. But the market discre-
dited that projection in January despite the severe wea-
ther during that month.
The members were under pressure to re duce their output
to the level of demand and in an emergency meeting helc
in March it was decided to establisha production ceiling
of 17.5 MBD versus 20.7 earlier 1982 and maintain the
crude marker price at $/B 34.
According to OPEC, this reduction in production is
sufficient to eliminate the current surplus of stocks anc
stabilize the market by 3rd quarter of this year. If stron-
ger actions are still required the Saudi’s may cut deeper
to ease the downward pressures on spot markets. It is felt
that once buyers are convinced that OPEC’s actions will
arrest the price pressures and that the marker price will
hold, a steadily stronger call will be made on production.
Some analysts on the other hand consider the $/B 34
crude marker price unrealistically high and feel that
some OPEC countries might cut their prices unilaterally
to boost sales and maintain their revenues. This can
jeopardize OPEC’s pricing structures and with the seas-
onal summer slump in demand, frictions within the orga-
nization are likely to increase.

Time will tell!

OPEP /
Den anjanan ’8

Den e ultimo dos edicionnan, e background, nacemento y desaroyo
di OPEP a wordo presenta. E sigiente parti ta e conclusion di e
serie di articulo ey.

Como un reaccion riba e problema aki (e quiebra di e
sistema di prijs unifica di OPEP, cua resulta die Revolu-
cion Iranes na 1979) y riba e acceleracion di presion pa
demanda, y den un esfuerzo pa reduci e diferencianan
den prijs den e organizacion, e prijs di e light Arabe a
wordo aumenta diferente biaha na 1979 y te cu $/B 28
desde 1 di Mei, 1980.

Na November 1980, e light Arabe a wordo aumenta na
$/B 32, mientras cu na October 1981 ela subi na $/B 34.
E aumento di prijs aki a coincidi cu un recesion econom-
ico general cu a causa algun reduccion den demanda pa
producto.

Sinembargo, mas importante ainda tabata e esfuerzonan
cu paisnan consumidor di petroleo a haci pa conserva y
substitui e productonan cu tabatin prijsnan demasiado
halto, resultando den un reduccion total di 8% di
demanda mundial na 1981.

OPEP na 1982

E organizacion a cuminsa 1982 sperando un cambio den
e fracaso di demanda di petroleo crudo den 1981. Pero «
mercado a desacredita e proyeccion ey na Januari apesat
di e invierno severo durante e luna ey.

E miembronan di OPEP tabata bao presion e ora ey pa
reduci nan produccion na e nivel di demanda y den un
reunion di emergencia cu a wordo teni na Maart, a se1
dicidi pa establece un produccion maximo di 17.5 MBD
compara cu 20.7 na comienzo di 1982, y mantene e prijs
fiho di crudo na $/B 34.

Di acuerdo cu OPEP, e reduccion den produccion aki ta
suficiente pa elimina e sobrante actual di producto y
stabiliza e mercado pa e di tres trimester di e anja aki. Si
ainda accionnan mas fuerte ta necesario, e Saudi-nan lo
reduci produccion mas ainda pa disminui e presion cu
tin pa baha prijs riba mercado liber.

Ta existi un sentimento cu una vez cu cumpradornan ta
convenci dicu OPEP su accionnan lo detene e presion di
prijs, y cu e prijs fiho lo wanta, un yamada cada vez mas
fuerte lo wordo haci pa aumenta produccion.

Algun analista, di otro banda, ta considera e prijs fiho di
crudo di $/B 34 demasiado halto y ta sinti cu algun
paisnan di OPEP lo por baha nan prijs unilateralmente
pa aumenta nan venta y mantene nan entrada.

Esaki por trese OPEP su structura di prijs den peliger, y
awor, cue demanda floho cu regularmente ta tuma lugat
den verano, probablemente desacuerdonan den e orga-
nizacion lo aumenta.

Tempo lo bisa.

Your choice: smoking or health?

Commercial advertising gives smoking a clean, fresh
image: A healthy looking man riding a horse in a wide
green field, enjoying his cigarette. Does that image por-
tray reality?

Research on smoking has not yet been conducted in
Aruba, but according to a L government report,
cigarette smoking is clearly identified as the chief pre-
ventable cause of death in our society and the most
important public health issue of our time.” ;
Smoking in the U.S. alone is responsible for some
340,000 deaths annually.

Financially speaking, smoking accounts for $13 billion a
year spent on smoking related health care and at least
5 billion in lost production and wages.





another $2!
It could not be said any stronger! What advertising
claims, facts contradict.
While science is trying to find solutions to solve man-
kind’s problem of temporary existence, smokers are
voluntarily reducing their life span by a few years: A

smoker actually doubles his risk of dying before the age of

65. Even smokers of cigarettes with low tar and nicotine
concentration have higher death rates than non-
smokers, as they have the tendency to satisfy their desire
for nicotine by smoking more and by increasing the
degree of inhalation
Heart trouble, chronic lung and respiratory diseases,
lung cancer, cancer of the lip, tongue, mouth, throat and
urinary bladder are some of the diseases caused by smok-
ing. According to the World Health Organization



report, in countries where smoking is widespread it
accounts for 90% of lung cancer deaths and 75% of deaths
from bronchitis. In other words, 90 out of a hundred
deaths caused by lung cancer and 75 out of a hundred
deaths caused by bronchitis could have been avoided if
those individuals never took up smoking!
Lung cancer, which accounts for a fourth of all cancer
deaths, fails to respond to treatment. According to a
report: Only 10% of its victims survive five years after
diagnosis.
Not surprisingly, parallel studies have shown that lung
cancer is soon likely to replace breast cancer as the
leading cause of cancer deaths among women. There has
in recent years been a steady increase of smoking among
women.
As if it were not enough to endanger one’s own life,
pregnant women who smoke can cause the deformation
or death of their own fetus. One doctor said that you
could see the child suffocate in the matrix ... probably
suffering from a temporary lack of oxigen.” If this child is
not aborted from the mother’s womb, he might have a
lower than normal weight at birth, have a premature
birth, die right after birth or live with birth defects.
Justifiably then, the World Health Organization is try-
ing to promote the idea that non-smoking should be
regarded as a normal social behaviour.”
Not even adult non-smokers can escape the dangers
caused by smoking. When accompanied by a smoker, or

Bo ta scoge: humamento of salud?

Propaganda comercial ta duna humamento un imagen
limpi y fresco: Un homber saludable corriendo cabai
riba un feld grandi y berde, disfrutando di un sigaria.
Acaso e imagen aki ta pinta realidad?

Estudionan tocante humamento no a wordo conduci na
Aruba ainda, pero segun un reportahe di gobierno di
Estados Unidos, ’ Humamento disigaria ta wordo iden-
tifica claramente como e mayor causa di morto preve-
nibel den nos sociedad y e problema di salubridad
publico di mas importante den nos tempo. Na Merca so,
humamento ta responsabel pa mas o menos 340,000
morto anual. Financieramente, humamento ta respon-
sabel pa $13 biyon anual cu ta wordo gasta na trata-
mento di salud relaciona cu humamento y por lo menos
un otro $25 biyon mas pa produccion y salario cu ta bai
perdi. Mas mihor esaki no por wordo mustra! Locual
propaganda ta pretende, echonan ta contradeci.
Mientras cu ciencia ta trata di haya solucion pa resolve e
problema di e existencia temporario di humanidad,

humadornan voluntariamente ta reduci nan longevidad
cu un poco anja. Un humador realmente ta redobla su
risico di muri prome cu 65 anja. Hasta humadornan di
sigaria cu poco concentracion di breu y nicotina tin un
grado di mortalidad mas halto cu hendenan cu no ta
huma, ya cu nan tin e tendencia di satisface nan deseo pa
nicotina door di huma mas hopi y tambe aumenta e
grado di tragamento.
Problema di curazon, malesanan cronico di pulmon y di
respiracion, cancer di pulmon, lip, lenga, boca, garganta
y blaas di urina ta algun di e malesanan cu ta wordo
causa door di humamento. Segun e reportahe die Orga-
nizacion di Salubridad Mundial, na paisnan na unda
humamento ta extenso, humamento ta responsabel pa
90% di morto causa pa cancer di pulmon, y 75% di morto
di bronquitis.
Cu otro palabra, 90 di 100 morto causa pa cancer di
pulmon y 75 di 100 causa pa bronchitis lo por a wordo
evita si € personanan ey nunca a huma!

Cancer di pulmon, cual ta responsabel pa un cuarta
parti di tur morto di cancer, no ta responde na
tratamento.

Segun un reportahe: Solamente 10% di e victimanan di
cancer di pulmon ta sobrevivi despues di diagnosis. No ta
sorprendente cu estudionan similar a mustra cu cancer
di pulmon probablemente pronto lo reemplaza cancer di
pecho como e causa principal di morto di cancer entre
hende muher. Den anjanan reciente, a tuma lugar un
aumento constante den humamento di hende muher.
Como si fuera no ta suficiente cu un hende ta pone su
mesun bida na peligro, hende muher humador cu ta na
estado por causa deformacion of morto di nan mesun
feto. Un dokter a bisa cu ’bo por mira e jiu sofoca dene

Si e mucha aki no wordo aborta for di e matriz di e

nacemento of nace cu defecto. Ta hustificabel anto cue
Organizacion di Salubridad Mundial ta tratando di
promove e idea cu abstencion di humamento mester
wordo considera como un ’conducta social normal.”

[ Humamento...

Ni siquiera adultonan cu ta abstene di humamento por
scapa di e peligronan cu humamento ta causa. Ora cue
persona cu no ta huma wordo acompanja pa un
humador, of ora e ta den un kamber yen di huma, e ta
wordo forza pa traga un concentracion mas halto ainda

realidad, dos estudio ya a indica cu e risico di cancer di
pulmon ta mas grandi den hende muher cu no ta huma
cu ta casa cu humador, cu den hende muher cu no ta
huma cu ta casa cu homber cu tampoco no ta huma.
Segun Dr. J.A.M. de Ruijter, Director di Medical
Department na Lago, cu tempo, hopi empleado di Lago,
a stop di huma. ”Nos ta avisa humadornan di sigaria pa
stop, pasobra tin evidencia cu si nan stop, hopi di e

jects, and a reduced number of Procon construction
management personnel have been integrated into Lago’s
Special Projects construction organization headed up by
Luis Anjie.

In November of last year the Butane Isomerization pro-
ject which was to produce isobutane feed for the Alkyla-
tion unit was placed on indefinite hold when the results
of the definitive cost estimate showed a significant escal-
lation in capital investment to complete the project.
The return on investment was further reduced when the
development of another project to provide facilities for
short range supply of Hydrogen plant feed to replace
imported Venezuelan butane, showed that this lower
investment project also will provide sufficient isobutane
feed for the Alky unit.

’ The construction phase of the Utilities Modernization
Project, aimed at improving reliability of equipment,
safety conditions, and efficiency in energy conservation,
is scheduled to move into full swing by the end of this
year and to be completed by the end of 1983,” Rocky
said. d :

This project involves the erection of two boilers, the
modernization of three exisiting boilers, the installation
of a modern centralized control system at Powerhouse
No. | and a general upgrading of that powerplant.
Sight clearance for the new boilers has already started
and their delivery is scheduled for January of 1983.
Dismantling of No. 11 boiler has been completed and the
remainder will be completed by mid 1984.

The Utilities Modernization Project involves a total
expenditure of $30 million.

Phase I of the Visbreaker debottlenecking projects
undertaken on 3 pipestills is designed to achieve 16%
conversion and increase the yield of higher valued pro-
ducts such as naphta, heating oil and gas oils, and is
proceeding on schedule. Visbreakers 5 and 6 are com-
plete, while the Visbreaker No. 8 project, which includes
installation of new charge pumps and motors is in the
construction phase and will be concluded in October
1982. (Cont. on page 8)

EXXON RESTRICTS CAPITALINVEST MENTS

ARUBA ESSO NEWS 1

Lago special projects affected

Due to world-wide market conditions and the uncertain
outlook in the oil industry, Exxon has called on all
affiliates, including Lago, to restrain capital invest-
ments. Most of Lago’s major capital projects planned
during the past few years have been affected by this
restraint. Those projects, estimated to cost over $100
million and planned for execution over a period of five
years, are being overseen by the Special Projects Depart-
ment established in September of 1980.

In March of 1981, Lago signed a contract with Procon
Incorporated, an international engineering/construc-
tion company, to be the prime contractor for the engi-
neering, procurement and construction of these special
projects.

These projects included a Grassroots Butane Isomeriza-

tion Unit, the Utilities Modernization Project, Visbrea-
ker Debottlenecking projects, and a large number of
energy conservation projects resulting from an energy
conservation survey conducted by ER&E in early 1980.
* Upon receipt of the capital restraint notice from Exxon,
as well as changes in other economic factors, the total
budget for these special projects was reduced to about
$60 million over the same time period (through 1985). At
this level of capital expenditure it is more cost effective
for Lago to assume complete responsibility for construc-
tion of these projects, utilizing local contractors directly,
rather than through the prime contractor,” said Marci-
ano Angela, Manager of the Special Projects
Department.

LSF awards seven,
and renews 54 grants

The Lago Scholarship Foundation, in its 26th year of
existence, has granted seven new scholarships and rene-
wed 54 grants for the 1982/1983 school year.

Up to this year, Lago has made it possible for 441 persons
to acquire a profession abroad, starting with the first 40
grants awarded at the Foundation’s birth in 1957.

All applicants for Lago scholarships are subjected to the
following criteria: results of the Lago test and the Scho-
lastic Aptitude Test, the applicant’s scholastic record,
whether the chosen college university is accredited and
professionally recognized, whether the desired course of
study would fulfill Aruba’s needs, and the applicant’s
financial need.

*Based on the above, the LSF Board, consisting of six
members, decides which applicants have the most poten-
tial for successfully completing their studies.

As long as children of Lago employees - who meet the
above criteria - have a good chance of succeeding in their
course of study, they will be given priority over non-
employee’s children,” said Carlos de Cuba, Secretary-
/Treasurer of the LSF.

During his study, the student has to maintain acceptable
grades as stipulated in the academic standards set by the
Foundation.

~The only other obligation the recipients of Lago scho-
larships have is to return to Aruba upon graduation and
work here for a minimum of three years. They are not
required to work at Lago, although it is hoped they will
apply at Lago upon completion of their studies,” said
Carlos.

The new recipients of the 1982/1983 Lago scholarship
awards are as follows: Mabel Arends, daughter of Eve-
raldo Arends of the Controller's Department, Chemical
Engineering, Tulane University; Willem Brinkman, son
of Willem Brinkman of the Industrial Security Depart-
ment, Electrical Engineering, University of South

OPEC

|__A look into the 80’s

In the last two issues, the background, birth and development of
OPEC was presented.
The following part is the conclusion of that series of articles.

In response to this problem (the breakdown of OPEC’s
unified pricing system, resulting from the Iranian Revo-
lution in 1979) and to the fierce upward pressure of
demand, and in an effort to narrow the price gap within
the organization, the price of Arabian light was raised
several times in 1979 and up to $/B 28 as of May 1, 1980.
In November 1980 the Arab light was increased to $/B
32, while in October 1981 it went to $/B 34.

These price increases coincided with a general economic
recession that caused some decline in product demands.
More important, however have been the results of the oi
consuming countries’ efforts for conservation and substi-
tution of the overpriced products resulting in a tota
world demand drop of 8% in 1981.

OPEC in 1982

The organization started 1982 expecting a reversal o
1981’s crude oil demand slump. But the market discre-
dited that projection in January despite the severe wea-
ther during that month.
The members were under pressure to re duce their output
to the level of demand and in an emergency meeting helc
in March it was decided to establisha production ceiling
of 17.5 MBD versus 20.7 earlier 1982 and maintain the
crude marker price at $/B 34.
According to OPEC, this reduction in production is
sufficient to eliminate the current surplus of stocks anc
stabilize the market by 3rd quarter of this year. If stron-
ger actions are still required the Saudi’s may cut deeper
to ease the downward pressures on spot markets. It is felt
that once buyers are convinced that OPEC’s actions will
arrest the price pressures and that the marker price will
hold, a steadily stronger call will be made on production.
Some analysts on the other hand consider the $/B 34
crude marker price unrealistically high and feel that
some OPEC countries might cut their prices unilaterally
to boost sales and maintain their revenues. This can
jeopardize OPEC’s pricing structures and with the seas-
onal summer slump in demand, frictions within the orga-
nization are likely to increase.

Time will tell!

OPEP /
Den anjanan ’8

Den e ultimo dos edicionnan, e background, nacemento y desaroyo
di OPEP a wordo presenta. E sigiente parti ta e conclusion di e
serie di articulo ey.

Como un reaccion riba e problema aki (e quiebra di e
sistema di prijs unifica di OPEP, cua resulta die Revolu-
cion Iranes na 1979) y riba e acceleracion di presion pa
demanda, y den un esfuerzo pa reduci e diferencianan
den prijs den e organizacion, e prijs di e light Arabe a
wordo aumenta diferente biaha na 1979 y te cu $/B 28
desde 1 di Mei, 1980.

Na November 1980, e light Arabe a wordo aumenta na
$/B 32, mientras cu na October 1981 ela subi na $/B 34.
E aumento di prijs aki a coincidi cu un recesion econom-
ico general cu a causa algun reduccion den demanda pa
producto.

Sinembargo, mas importante ainda tabata e esfuerzonan
cu paisnan consumidor di petroleo a haci pa conserva y
substitui e productonan cu tabatin prijsnan demasiado
halto, resultando den un reduccion total di 8% di
demanda mundial na 1981.

OPEP na 1982

E organizacion a cuminsa 1982 sperando un cambio den
e fracaso di demanda di petroleo crudo den 1981. Pero «
mercado a desacredita e proyeccion ey na Januari apesat
di e invierno severo durante e luna ey.

E miembronan di OPEP tabata bao presion e ora ey pa
reduci nan produccion na e nivel di demanda y den un
reunion di emergencia cu a wordo teni na Maart, a se1
dicidi pa establece un produccion maximo di 17.5 MBD
compara cu 20.7 na comienzo di 1982, y mantene e prijs
fiho di crudo na $/B 34.

Di acuerdo cu OPEP, e reduccion den produccion aki ta
suficiente pa elimina e sobrante actual di producto y
stabiliza e mercado pa e di tres trimester di e anja aki. Si
ainda accionnan mas fuerte ta necesario, e Saudi-nan lo
reduci produccion mas ainda pa disminui e presion cu
tin pa baha prijs riba mercado liber.

Ta existi un sentimento cu una vez cu cumpradornan ta
convenci dicu OPEP su accionnan lo detene e presion di
prijs, y cu e prijs fiho lo wanta, un yamada cada vez mas
fuerte lo wordo haci pa aumenta produccion.

Algun analista, di otro banda, ta considera e prijs fiho di
crudo di $/B 34 demasiado halto y ta sinti cu algun
paisnan di OPEP lo por baha nan prijs unilateralmente
pa aumenta nan venta y mantene nan entrada.

Esaki por trese OPEP su structura di prijs den peliger, y
awor, cue demanda floho cu regularmente ta tuma lugat
den verano, probablemente desacuerdonan den e orga-
nizacion lo aumenta.

Tempo lo bisa.

Your choice: smoking or health?

Commercial advertising gives smoking a clean, fresh
image: A healthy looking man riding a horse in a wide
green field, enjoying his cigarette. Does that image por-
tray reality?

Research on smoking has not yet been conducted in
Aruba, but according to a L government report,
cigarette smoking is clearly identified as the chief pre-
ventable cause of death in our society and the most
important public health issue of our time.” ;
Smoking in the U.S. alone is responsible for some
340,000 deaths annually.

Financially speaking, smoking accounts for $13 billion a
year spent on smoking related health care and at least
5 billion in lost production and wages.





another $2!
It could not be said any stronger! What advertising
claims, facts contradict.
While science is trying to find solutions to solve man-
kind’s problem of temporary existence, smokers are
voluntarily reducing their life span by a few years: A

smoker actually doubles his risk of dying before the age of

65. Even smokers of cigarettes with low tar and nicotine
concentration have higher death rates than non-
smokers, as they have the tendency to satisfy their desire
for nicotine by smoking more and by increasing the
degree of inhalation
Heart trouble, chronic lung and respiratory diseases,
lung cancer, cancer of the lip, tongue, mouth, throat and
urinary bladder are some of the diseases caused by smok-
ing. According to the World Health Organization



report, in countries where smoking is widespread it
accounts for 90% of lung cancer deaths and 75% of deaths
from bronchitis. In other words, 90 out of a hundred
deaths caused by lung cancer and 75 out of a hundred
deaths caused by bronchitis could have been avoided if
those individuals never took up smoking!
Lung cancer, which accounts for a fourth of all cancer
deaths, fails to respond to treatment. According to a
report: Only 10% of its victims survive five years after
diagnosis.
Not surprisingly, parallel studies have shown that lung
cancer is soon likely to replace breast cancer as the
leading cause of cancer deaths among women. There has
in recent years been a steady increase of smoking among
women.
As if it were not enough to endanger one’s own life,
pregnant women who smoke can cause the deformation
or death of their own fetus. One doctor said that you
could see the child suffocate in the matrix ... probably
suffering from a temporary lack of oxigen.” If this child is
not aborted from the mother’s womb, he might have a
lower than normal weight at birth, have a premature
birth, die right after birth or live with birth defects.
Justifiably then, the World Health Organization is try-
ing to promote the idea that non-smoking should be
regarded as a normal social behaviour.”
Not even adult non-smokers can escape the dangers
caused by smoking. When accompanied by a smoker, or

Bo ta scoge: humamento of salud?

Propaganda comercial ta duna humamento un imagen
limpi y fresco: Un homber saludable corriendo cabai
riba un feld grandi y berde, disfrutando di un sigaria.
Acaso e imagen aki ta pinta realidad?

Estudionan tocante humamento no a wordo conduci na
Aruba ainda, pero segun un reportahe di gobierno di
Estados Unidos, ’ Humamento disigaria ta wordo iden-
tifica claramente como e mayor causa di morto preve-
nibel den nos sociedad y e problema di salubridad
publico di mas importante den nos tempo. Na Merca so,
humamento ta responsabel pa mas o menos 340,000
morto anual. Financieramente, humamento ta respon-
sabel pa $13 biyon anual cu ta wordo gasta na trata-
mento di salud relaciona cu humamento y por lo menos
un otro $25 biyon mas pa produccion y salario cu ta bai
perdi. Mas mihor esaki no por wordo mustra! Locual
propaganda ta pretende, echonan ta contradeci.
Mientras cu ciencia ta trata di haya solucion pa resolve e
problema di e existencia temporario di humanidad,

humadornan voluntariamente ta reduci nan longevidad
cu un poco anja. Un humador realmente ta redobla su
risico di muri prome cu 65 anja. Hasta humadornan di
sigaria cu poco concentracion di breu y nicotina tin un
grado di mortalidad mas halto cu hendenan cu no ta
huma, ya cu nan tin e tendencia di satisface nan deseo pa
nicotina door di huma mas hopi y tambe aumenta e
grado di tragamento.
Problema di curazon, malesanan cronico di pulmon y di
respiracion, cancer di pulmon, lip, lenga, boca, garganta
y blaas di urina ta algun di e malesanan cu ta wordo
causa door di humamento. Segun e reportahe die Orga-
nizacion di Salubridad Mundial, na paisnan na unda
humamento ta extenso, humamento ta responsabel pa
90% di morto causa pa cancer di pulmon, y 75% di morto
di bronquitis.
Cu otro palabra, 90 di 100 morto causa pa cancer di

Cancer di pulmon, cual ta responsabel pa un cuarta
parti di tur morto di cancer, no ta responde na
tratamento.

Segun un reportahe: Solamente 10% di e victimanan di
cancer di pulmon ta sobrevivi despues di diagnosis. No ta
sorprendente cu estudionan similar a mustra cu cancer
di pulmon probablemente pronto lo reemplaza cancer di
pecho como e causa principal di morto di cancer entre
hende muher. Den anjanan reciente, a tuma lugar un
aumento constante den humamento di hende muher.
Como si fuera no ta suficiente cu un hende ta pone su
mesun bida na peligro, hende muher humador cu ta na
estado por causa deformacion of morto di nan mesun
feto. Un dokter a bisa cu ’bo por mira e jiu sofoca dene
matriz ... probablemente sufriendo di un falta temporal
di oxigeno.”’

Si e mucha aki no wordo aborta for di e matriz di e
mama, e lo por nace cu peso mas abao cu normal, e lo por
tin un nacemento prematuro, muri mes ora despues di
nacemento of nace cu defecto. Ta hustificabel anto cue
Organizacion di Salubridad Mundial ta tratando di
promove e idea cu abstencion di humamento mester
wordo considera como un ’conducta social normal.”

[ Humamento...

Ni siquiera adultonan cu ta abstene di humamento por
scapa di e peligronan cu humamento ta causa. Ora cue
persona cu no ta huma wordo acompanja pa un
humador, of ora e ta den un kamber yen di huma, e ta
wordo forza pa traga un concentracion mas halto ainda
di e substancia cu ta causa cancer, cue humador mes. En
realidad, dos estudio ya a indica cu e risico di cancer di
pulmon ta mas grandi den hende muher cu no ta huma
cu ta casa cu humador, cu den hende muher cu no ta
huma cu ta casa cu homber cu tampoco no ta huma.
Segun Dr. J.A.M. de Ruijter, Director di Medical
Department na Lago, cu tempo, hopi empleado di Lago,
a stop di huma. ”Nos ta avisa humadornan di sigaria pa
stop, pasobra tin evidencia cu si nan stop, hopi di e
cambionan anatomico y fisiologico lo no progresa y te
hasta por bolbe na normalidad. ;

Manera un dokter a bisa: ’E unico sigaria cu no ta
peligroso pa bo salud, ta e sigaria cu no ta sendi.””

Lago projects... (Cont. from page 1) |
An agreement has been reached with Procon whereby
they relinquished responsibility for construction as of
July 1, 1982. Procon will remain in charge, however, of
the engineering and procurement activities on these pro-
jects, and a reduced number of Procon construction
management personnel have been integrated into Lago’s
Special Projects construction organization headed up by
Luis Anjie.

In November of last year the Butane Isomerization pro-
ject which was to produce isobutane feed for the Alkyla-
tion unit was placed on indefinite hold when the results
of the definitive cost estimate showed a significant escal-
lation in capital investment to complete the project.
The return on investment was further reduced when the
development of another project to provide facilities for
short range supply of Hydrogen plant feed to replace
imported Venezuelan butane, showed that this lower
investment project also will provide sufficient isobutane
feed for the Alky unit.

’ The construction phase of the Utilities Modernization
Project, aimed at improving reliability of equipment,
safety conditions, and efficiency in energy conservation,
is scheduled to move into full swing by the end of this
year and to be completed by the end of 1983,” Rocky
said. d :

This project involves the erection of two boilers, the
modernization of three exisiting boilers, the installation
of a modern centralized control system at Powerhouse
No. | and a general upgrading of that powerplant.
Sight clearance for the new boilers has already started
and their delivery is scheduled for January of 1983.
Dismantling of No. 11 boiler has been completed and the
remainder will be completed by mid 1984.

The Utilities Modernization Project involves a total
expenditure of $30 million.

Phase I of the Visbreaker debottlenecking projects
undertaken on 3 pipestills is designed to achieve 16%
conversion and increase the yield of higher valued pro-
ducts such as naphta, heating oil and gas oils, and is
proceeding on schedule. Visbreakers 5 and 6 are com-
plete, while the Visbreaker No. 8 project, which includes
installation of new charge pumps and motors is in the
construction phase and will be concluded in October
1982. (Cont. on page 8)

Phase II, which would increase conversion to the 20%
level and require much larger capital investments, has
been postponed indefinitely due to serious product qual-
ity questions at these higher conversion levels, that have
to be resolved before these projects can proceed.

The fourth major area affected by the capital constraints
and the world-wide market condition is the energy con-
servation projects. All the projects identified by ER&E
to have attractive return on the then forecasted market
prices have been developed through the process design

and will be cost estimated

in the budget period through 1985, only five
smaller Encon projects totalling about $15 million now
have attractive enough returns on investments to be
considered for further development

The balance of the Encon projects will be put on hold
indefinitely after screening cost estimates are completed
on them later this year

With the current scope of major capital projects, con-
struction will peak in 1983 at about 250 men level, the
majority of which will be from the local construction
workforce.
