Annuitant Medical Plan presented

at sessions
During the information sessions held by the Company
on the Annuitant Medical Plan in July, some questions
were raised that were either not covered in the booklet
or that were not fully understood by employees. For
your benefit, we are publishing 11 of those questions
with their answers.
Q. Who is a bona fide annuitant?
A. A bonafide annuitant is a person who stops work-
ing to retire at a normal retirement age (Men 60/
women 55) ; a person who stops working to retire
early at any time between age 50 and 60; or a per-
son who is granted a disability retirement. At least
15 years of service is required in each of these cases.
Q. Are bona fide annuitants under the 1948 Plan
eligible to participate in the Annuitant Medical
A. Yes, they are eligible to participate.
Q. Considering the large number of employees in-
volved, why cannot the Plan cover 100 days in
the hospital?
A. The 30 days that have been established appear to
be adequate in most cases. If experience proves
that this is not so, there may be a basis for future
Q. Suppose an annuitant, his wife and dependent
children are covered, would they be covered for
30 days together or 30 days each?
A. The 30 days in hospital is applicable to each per-
son separately.
Q. After 30 days are exhausted, what percentage
will be picked up?
A. None until the next calender year.

Durante e sesionnan cu a ser ten na Esso Club tocante e
Plan Medico pa Pensionista, un description amplio a
ser dund di e beneficionan di e Plan. Despues di e
presentation tabatin oportunidad pa empleadonan haci

Q. What happens if in the future, after the pro-
gram is in effect, the participation drops below
A. The Board of the Foundation will have to review
the operation of the Plan and determine what steps
should be taken. It may be possible that no actions
have to be taken. (cont. on page2)

Saving energy, reducing cost,

through combustion training

A Combustion and Fired Equipment Training was con-
ducted for over 15 MPT's during July. The course was
instructed by George Coats of the Technical Depart-
ment. "An increase in the understanding of the com-
bustion and fired equipment leads to energy savings
in the long run and in reduction of maintenance
costs," said George. The course dealt with a wide variety
of topics such as fired heaters and boilers along with the
various types of burners employed in each; the differ-
ence between natural and forced draft burners; firing
of gas and pitch fuel; the differences between boilers
and fired heaters; excess air performance and efficiency
goals for various heaters/boilers; and simplified cal-
culation procedures for determining operating efficien-
cy, tube metal temperatures and heat losses. The course
was spread over four half days, three hours each session.

Annuitant Medical...
Q. Overseas treatment will be reimbursed at Aruba
rate. Is this also the case if you retire off-shore?
A. Yes.
Q. If Logo operation is discontinued, will the
money paid by employees be refunded?
A. Existence of the Plan is not primarily based on
Lago's continued operation, but mainly on the
need for such a Plan and its sound financial man-
agement. Whenever these basic principles no lon-
ger exist there is reason for dissolving the Plan. The
Statutes in such a case stipulate how liquidation
will take place.
Q. As the hospital/specialists/doctor rates increase,
will the benefits increase?
A. Hospital benefits increase automatically. Specialist
and doctor benefits will be reviewed and adjusted
as experience is gained with the Plan.

"Combustion training" ta yuda

spaar energia y reduce gasto

Un curso di entrenamento tocante equipo di combus-
tion y vapor (Combustion and Fired Equipment Train-
ing) a wordo conduct pa mas cu 15 MPT durante luna
di Juli. Instructor di e curso tabata George Coats di
Technical Department. "Un miho comprendimento di
equipo di combustion y vapor ta yega na economizacion
di energia riba termino largo y reduction di gastonan di
mantenimento," George Coats a bisa. E curso a trata un
variedad grand di t6piconan manera heaternan di va-
por y boilernan hunto cu e diferente tiponan di burner-
nan cu ta wordo usa den nan; e diferencia entire boiler-
nan y heaternan di vapor; resultadonan ora cu tin ex-
ceso di aire y metanan di eficiencia pa various heater-/
boilernan; y proceduranan di calculacionnan simpli-
fica pa determine eficiencia di operation, temperatura-
nan di tube metal y perdida di calor. E curso a dura 4
mita dia, cu sesionnan di tres hora.

(Cont. from page 1)
Q. Will our contributions be increased if the costs
A. It depends on whether or not there is a need for an
increase in contribution when costs go up, but it is
a fair assumption that contributions will have to in-
crease when costs go up.
Q. Please explain question 20 in the booklet: Sup-
pose there are changes e.g. a National Health
scheme is introduced by the government?
A. What this question means is: what will happen to
this Plan if the government later on decides to in-
troduce a program which provides annuitant medi-
cal protection?
The answer in such a case is that we will have to
evaluate the government program and determine
whether there is still a need to continue the Lago
Annuitant Medical Plan in its present form.

Save a life with CPR

Not everybody could, or would want to, be a doctor.
But all of us can save a life. How? By learning the Basic
Life Support techniques, better known as CPR or Car-
dio Pulmonary Resuscitation. "CPR is needed," ex-
plained Joan Wilson, Head Nurse at the Lago Medical
Center, "in any situation in which breathing alone or
breathing and heartbeat are absent as result of heart
attacks, strokes, drowning, electrocution, suffocation
and drug overdose."
Joan attended a two-day instructors' course at the North
Shore Medical Center in Miami in May where she be-
came a Basic Life Support instructor. The Lago
Medical Center in cooperation with the Industrial Hy-
giene/Safety Section is planning to familiarize all em-
ployees with CPR. "Of course we cannot teach all em-
ployees to become most effective in CPR as that would
understandably involve a lot of training hours, but at
least we can make them aware of the basics of CPR,"
said Dr. Jack de Ruyter, Director of the Medical Center.
The CPR course to be offered to employees, which will
take about three to four hours, will include practical
life-saving information and a chance for all participants
to try the CPR techniques on the specially-made dum-
mies, Mathilda and Charlie.
CPR consists of mouth to mouth breathing and external
cardiac compression. "The quicker you start with CPR,
the greater the chance that the victim will survive. You
provide the much needed oxygen into the victim's body
by doing mouth to mouth breathing and you pump the
blood back through the body by doing compressions,"
explained Joan. The first important step to follow in
CPR is to open the airways by holding the victim's fore-

head down and extending the neck. "Sometimes this
action alone may cause the victim to breath," com-
mented Joan. If it does not help, however, mouth to
mouth resuscitation should be started immediately, fol-
lowed by compressions if heartbeat is absent. The heart-
beat can be checked by feeling the carotic pulse close to
the Adam's apple. "But if you don't know how to give
compressions, "said Joan, "you should at least give
mouth to mouth breathing." How long should you give
CPR? "You should not stop unless the doctor takes over
or the victim recovers."

Above: To put the victim in the correct CPR position without
adding to his injury, the victim should be turned with the head
and neck kept in a straight line, as shown here by Nurse Wilson
and Simon Geerman of the Safety/Industrial Hygiene Section.
Below: While the neck of the victim is extended, Simon is
searching for the pulse.

Nurse Joan Wilson of the Logo Medical Center is pointing to the
location of the heart to explain the theory of Cardio Pulmonary

Saving lives is not an everyday occurrence, at least not
for the average person. But knowing how to do it
properly, when it is so easy, is almost an obligation. As a
responsible member of the community, the Lago Medi-
cal Center may eventually also teach CPR to interested
groups. "CPR is an emergency procedure that can be
performed by any one of us, anywhere, provided you
have sufficient training',, said Joan, "without using any
tools but our hands, lungs and brains."

yega e pulmonnan, e pecho di e victim ta aumenti manera por

Salba un hende cu CPR

No ta tur hende por of kier bira un dokter. Pero nos tur
por salba un bida. Con? Door di sifia e t6cnicanan ba-
sico pa tene un persona na bida, mihor conoci como
CPR of Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (Resucitacion
Cardio Pulmonar). "CPR ta necesario," segun Head
Nurse Joan Wilson di Lago Medical Center, "den cada
situation den cual no tin halamento di rosea of ora cu
curazon no ta bati ni tampoco tin halament'i rosea, a
causa di atake di curazon, batimento pisa di curazon,
hogamento, electrocucion, sofocamento y un dosis ex-
cesivo di droga."
Joan a asisti na un curso di dos dia na North Shore
Medical Center na Miami na luna di Mei unda ela bira
un Basic Life Support Instructor. Lago Medical Center
hunto cu Industrial Hygiene/Safety Section ta planean-
do pa familiarize tur empleado cu CPR. "Ta claro cu
nos no por sifia tur empleado con pa ta lo mas efectivo
den CPR, ya cu esei comprendiblemente lo envolve hopi
oranan di entrenamento, pero siquiera nos por mustra
nan ariba e elementonan basico di CPR," Dr. Jack de
Ruyter, Director di Medical Center, a bisa. E curso di
CPR cu lo wordo duna na empleadonan lo dura mas o
menos tres pa cuatro ora, y 1o inclui information prac-
tico tocante salbamento di bida y e oportunidad pa pur-
ba e tecnicanan di CPR ariba e popchinan special-
traha, Mathilda y Charlie.
CPR ta consisti di pasa rosea di boca pa boca y com-
presion cardiac externo. "Mas liher bo cuminza cu
CPR, mas grand e chens ta cu e victim lo sobrevivi.
Abo ta suministra e oxigeno tan necesario den e curpa
di e victim door di pasa rosea di boca pa boca y bo ta
pomp e sanger door di e curpa door di haci compresion-
nan,"Joan a splica. E prome paso important den CPR
ta pa habri e ruta di aire door di wanta e victim su
frente di cabez abao y extended su nek na laira.
"Tin biaha e movemiento aki so ta basta caba pa e vic-
tima cuminza hala rosea," Joan a comenta. Si esaki no
yuda, sin embargo, mester cuminza cu resucitacion di
boca pa boca inmediatamente sigi pa compresionnan, si
e curazon no ta bati. Un hende por check e batimento

di curazon door di sinti e pulso carotico cerca di e nuez
di garganta (e asina yama "Adam's apple"). "Pero si bo
no sa con pa duna compression, bo mester siquiera pasa
rosea di boca pa boca,"Joan a agrega.
Pa cuanto tempo bo mester duna CPR? "Bo no mester
stop, a menos cu un dokter jega of e victim recobri

Cost savings contributed significantly .

Exxon 2nd quarter

Exxon Corporation estimated second quarter 1983 net
income at $1,075 million, up 26.6 percent from $849
million in the 1982 second quarter. Revenue totaled
$22,881 million in the most recent quarter, down 8.9
percent from $25,121 million in the second quarter of
last year.
For the first half of 1983, net income was estimated at
$2,135 million, up 26.5 percent from $1,688 million in
the first half of 1982.

Exxon Chairman C. C. Garvin, Jr. had the following
comments on the second quarter results:
"Particularly encouraging in this earnings improvement
is the substantial contribution from cost savings achiev-
ed trhoughout the organization by intensive efforts
over the past year to increase productivity. As one indi-
cator of the effectiveness of the efforts, total operating,
selling and administrative expenses in the 1983 second
quarter were $400 million, before tax, less than in the
second quarter of 1982. In addition to generating in-
creasing earnings benefits in future periods, these cost
saving measures should ensure maintenance of Exxon's
competitiveness in the petroleum and petrochemical
"Other factors contributing to the quarterly earnings
improvement included crude oil production increases in
the U.S., North Sea and Malaysia, and petroleum ref-
ining/marketing margin improvement in the U.S. Pro-
fits from sale of products from relatively low-cost LIFO
inventories totaled $96 million in this year's second
quarter; comparable gains in the 1982 second quarter
were $215 million.
"The 1982 second quarter results were affected by a
$106 million charge for mothballing the Colony Shale
Oil Project and by $136 million of gains related to debt
restructuring. There were no material unusual items in
the 1983 second quarter."
Mr. Garvin added the following on the first half oper-
ating earnings of major components of the business:
"Earnings from U.S. petroleum exploration and pro-
duction operations were $992 million in 1983, up 4 per-
cent from the first half of 1982. Contributing factors in
the improvement were a 6 percent rise in crude oil pro-
duction, higher prices for natural gas and lower explo-
ration costs. Partially offsetting were the effects of a 17
percent demand-related decline in natural gas produc-
tion together with lower prices for crude oil.
"In U.S. refining and marketing operations, earnings
totaled $130 million in the first half of 1983; in the
comparable period of last year earnings were $92 mil-
lion. Motor gasoline sales volume was up 4 percent;
however, total sales volume declined 2 percent due to a
drop in sales of heavier, lower-valued products, princi-
pally heavy fuel oil. This improvement in sales mix to-
gether with operating cost reductions were principal
factors in the earnings gain.
"Earnings from foreign petroleum exploration and pro-
duction operations were up from $694 million in the
first half of 1982 to $981 million in this year's first half.
Higher production volumes of crude oil and natural gas

earnings up 26.6%

were the most significant factors in the earnings im-
provement; crude oil production was up 53 percent in
the North Sea, and 42 percent in Malaysia. Lower ex-
ploration costs in 1983 also contributed to the earnings
"Foreign petroleum refining and marketing operations
had earnings of $192 million in 1983, up 25 percent
from $153 million in the first half of 1982. Margins were
improved from the depressed year-earlier levels in some
areas, particularly Europe, but were sharply lower in
Canada. Sales volumes were down 8 percent in total for-
eign markets.
"Earnings in the chemicals segment totaled $85 million
worldwide in the 1983 first half, up 55 percent. The im-
provement resulted from operating cost reductions and
other efficiencies, together with a 4 percent increase in
worldwide sales volume. Margins continued to erode."
Worldwide capital and exploration expenditures total-
ed $4,704 million in the first half of 1983, down 15.2
percent from the first half of 1982. Expenditures in the
U.S. totaled $2,318 million, down 25 percent.

The 13th and last session held in July of the First Line Organiza-
tion Improvement training, Phase I, was opened by Sandy Pardo,
Process Manager. A total of about 170 First Line Supervisors have
completed that training. Phase II of First Line 01 is scheduled to
start in October. In the meanwhile, the Second Line Supervisors
are continuing with Step II.

e efectividad di e esfuerzonan, gastonan total di opera-
cion, benta y administration den e segundo cuarto di

den e segundo cuarto di 1982. Fuera di ta propaga un
aumento di beneficionan di entrada pa future, e medi-
danan di economizacion lo mester sigura Exxon su po-
sicion competitive den e industrianan petrolero y petro-
"Otro factornan cu a contribui na e mehoranza di en-
tradanan ta inclui aumento di production di crudo na
Estados Unidos, Noordzee y Malasia y mehoracion di
margen di refinamento/benta di petroleo na Merca.
Ganashi di benta di productonan di relativamente poco
gasto di inventarionan LIFO ta jega na un total di $96
miyon den e segundo cuarto di e afia aki; ganashi den e
mesun temporada durante 1982 tabata $215 miyon.
"E resultadonan di e segundo cuarto di 1982 a wordo
afecta pa un gasto di $136 miyon pa "mothball" e Col-
ony Shale Oil Project y pa $136 miyon di ganashi rela-
ciona cu e restructuramento di debenan. No tabata tin
cosnan di importancia fuera di normal den e segundo
cuarto di 1983.
Sr. Garvin a afiadi lo siguiente tocante e prome mita di
e entradanan di e major componentenan di negoshi:
"Entradanan di operacionnan di exploracion y produc-
cion di petroleo na Estados Unidos tabata $992 miyon
na 1983, un aumento di 4 porciento compare cu e
prome mita di 1982. Factornan cu a contribui na e me-
horanza tabata un aumento di 6 porciento den produc-
cion di crudo, preisnan mas halto pa gas natural y gas-
tonan di exploracion mas abao. Loke parcialmente a

volume di benta di gasoline a subi cu 4 porciento; sin
embargo, e volume total di benta a baha 2 porciento

pa via di un reduction den benta di productonan pisa y
di menos balor, principalmente azeta di combustibel

"Entradanan di operacionnan di exploracion y produc-
cion den exterior a aumenta di $694 miyon den e prome

crudo y gas natural tabata e factornan mas significant
den mehoracion di entradanan; production di crudo
den Noordzee a aumenta cu 53 porciento, y na Malasia
cu 42 porciento. Gastonan di exploracion mas abao na
