Exxon emphasizes production, exploration

| The vast majority of Exxon’s profits are currently being
| derived from exploration and producing activities, 93%
during the first half of 1983. As a result Exxon’s present

and Lago outlook.

20 employees attended a two-day
orientation program for new MPT’s
in September. Extensive informa-
tion on Lago operations,
departmental functions, Exxon and
Lago policies and compensation
systems was presented by the
Department Managers and
Employee Relations personnel. Mr.
Joe Quinton, Employee Relations
Assistant Manager is presenting his
part on ”Exxon, EIA and Lago
Corporate structure.”



EMPL. INFO

Exxon is also involved in a major effort to adjust its
refining and marketing facilities to prevailing
conditions, which means, reducing the size of the
Company’s assets in those activities and improving those
that remain.

That effort involves the selling of surplus or non-
productive refineries, upgrading of efficient refineries,
scrapping of surplus ships, consolidating of marketing
and distribution terminals and reducing the number of
service stations. Along with these actions, Exxon is also
reducing the number of employees to those required to
operate efficiently the equipment remaining after
downsizing the Company.

Transshipping business to decline
Transshipping business may eventually disappear.
Lago’s own transshipping facilities have a capacity of
650 MBD, but for the year through August, usage of



from page |



these facilities have amounted to only 90 MBD. The
forecast provided by the transportation and shipping
company in New York indicates there may be no usage
whatsoever for this equipment beginning next year.
Lago receives less oil

Since March of this year, Lago has been receiving only
210 MBD instead of the 300 MBD from Venezuela. In
making this reduction, Venezuela is acting in
conformance with the production limit imposed on them
by OPEC. Simultaneously that -country is also
attempting to diversify its crude outlets. It is doing this
by placing crude oils in the U.S. refineries that have new
equipment designed to handle heavy crude and by
placing some of their oil in Germany with a company
they recently purchased 50% interest in. If Lago is unable
to acquire more than 200 MBD of crude, it will have to
adopt. whatever measures necessary to enable the
refinery to operate economically at 200 MBD.

SEPT./OKT. 1983



Lago’s outlook

If Lago continues to receive 200 MBD, the refinery must
be adjusted in whatever manner necessary to enable it to
be profitable at 200 MBD. This means Lago has to
upgrade some units, shutdown surplus units, curtail
drastically the use of contractors, reduce its workforce so
the Company can operate efficiently at 200 MBD, and
do anything else to control operating costs
To satisfy contractual commitments Lago is presently
also refining some heavy Middle East crude.
not make any money or lose any money by processing
these crudes when the base cost of the refinery is
supported by the 210 MBD of Venezuelan crude.

More emphasis on Safety
Lago is presently acting upon recommendations mad¢
by the Du Pont Company, which is the largest chemical
company in the world with the best industrial safety
record. Although Du Pont had a lot of praise for Lago’s
current safety program they did make some important

Sessions.

recommendations regarding the establishment of higher
standards of safety performance by insisting that safety
rules and procedures be followed and by conducting
management safety inspections. Although we have
worked more than 3 million manhours through July
since the last disabling injury, the number of injuries for
the first 7 months have been 27 compared to 37 for all of
last year. These numbers suggest we have a lot of work to
do to make Lago safer than it already is.
Concluding remarks

Mr. Golden concluded his speech by saying that
although he was not able to give a more pleasant forecast
of the future “I do think it is important that all of us
thoroughly understand the seriousness of the situation
we are facing. By doing so, we should be able to adjust to
it and by working together, solve those obstacles needed
to enable us to operate profitably at the lower level of
crude availability forecasted”

Perspectivanan di Lago

Si Lago sigi hafia 200 mil barril pa dia, e refineria mester
wordo ahusta na cualkier manera cu ta necesario pa e
por ta lucrativo na 200 mil barril pa dia. Esei ta nificd cu
Lago mester mehora algun di su unidadnan, baha
unidadnan cu ta dimas, reduci e uzo di contratistanan,
reduci e cantidad di trahadornan pa asina e compania
por opera eficientemente na 200 mil barril pa dia, y haci
cualkier otro cos pa controld costonan di operacion. Pa
cumpli cu obligacion di contratnan Lago actualmente
tambe ta refinando crudo di Medio-Oriente. Lago no ta
gana ni perde placa door di procesa e crudo aki ora cu e
preis basico die refineria ta wordo sostené pa e 210 mil
barril pa dia di crudo Venezolano.

Mas enfasis ariba Seguridad
Actualmente Lago ta actuando ariba
recomendacionnan haci pa Du Pont Company, cual tae
compania quimica mas grandi na mundo cu e miho
record di seguridad industrial. Aunke cu Du Pont tin
hopi elogio pa Lago su programa actual di Seguridad,
nan a haci algun recomendacionnan importante tocante
e establecimiento di normanan mas halto pa ehecucion
di seguridad door di insisti pa sigi regla y proceduranan
di seguridad y door di conduci inspeccionnan di
seguridad di gerencia. Aunke cu nos a traha mas cu 3
million ora obreril desde e ultimo herida incapacitante, e
cantidad di heridanan pa e prome 7 lunanan tabata 27
compara cu 37 pa henter afia pasa. E cifranan aki ta
sugeri cu nos tin hopi trabao cu mester wordo haci, pa
haci Lago mas sigur cu e ta caba.

Notanan final

Sr. Golden a conclui su discurso bisando cu aunke e no
por a duna un pronosticacion mas agradable pa futuro,
ela sigi bisa:

Mi ta kere cu ta importante pa nos tur comprende bon
cla e seriedad di e€ situacion cu nos ta confrontando.

A time to listen



SEPT./OKT. 1983



A time to speak ...



; the Employee Information Sessions hosted by
President Jerry Golden, employees had the opportunity
to ask questions to the President. The following is a
sample of the questions asked with their corresponding
responses (non-verbatim):

Q: Will their be exploration of oil in Aruba? And if so,
will Exxon be exploring?

om YO

Dave Fleming ...

A: Yes, I believe there will eventually be exploration of
oil in Aruba. But if so, it won't be done until the
necessary laws and regulations are in place. As to Exxon,
once the problem is solved, and Aruba decides it wants to
explore the oil, the Government will ask for bids from
interested companies. Exxon Corporation will be one of
those companies and, because of our existing interests
here, we would certainly hope to be one of the companies
to win rights.

Q: If Lago remains with only 200.000 barrels a day of
crude ro refine, with how much would manpower be cut?



Robert di Elsi ....





A: At this point we are not really sure. My guess would
be 150-200 men. This number does not include those
already goung on pension, or contractors. It does include
employees on all levels, covered employees and National
MPT’s as well as expatriates.

Q: You say we have economic problems, why isn’t Lago
cutting costs of its upper management?

A: Lago is looking at cutting the costs at all levels
including fringe benefits. Except for in emergency cases,
Exxon normally wouldn’t reduce salaries of _ its
employees but cuts back on the number of people

Q: When will we know more about Lago’s future?

A: In December we will be able to have a more definite
picture of Lago’s future for two reasons. In December
(Venezuela will hold its presidential election and we
don’t think it will make any agreements with us before
that), we should have a better idea on the amount of
crude we will be receiving from Venezuela. Secondly, we
are expecting to have our studies on Lago’s future
outlook completed in December.



C eo

Cheryll de Witt ...

Communications Philosophy

Through the Employee Information Sessions,
employees had the opportunity to receive information
and answers to their questions. As such, Lago’s
business philosophy on communications was partly
fulfilled. The statement on the Company’s philosophy
on communications is as follows:

”The Company believes in frank and timely
communications to employees, customers,

government, media, and the general public to

the degree required to permit an adequate
understanding of the Company’s activities.
Communications up, down and across all levels
of the organization are valued.

Diversity of views freely expressed, when faced
in an open-minded and collaborative way, can
lead to a better understanding of problems and
to better solutions. Employees are encouraged
to say what they think and believe to be true and
not restrict themselves only to what they think
others want to hear”’.

P: Lo tin exploracion di azeta na Aruba? Y si ta asina,
Exxon lo bin explora?

C: Si, mi ta kere cu eventualmente lo tin exploracion di

Pa loke ta toca Exxon, una bez cue problema ta resolvi y

P: Si Lago keda cu solamente 200.000 barril dicrudo pa

and Lago outlook.

20 employees attended a two-day
orientation program for new MPT’s
in September. Extensive informa-
tion on Lago operations,
departmental functions, Exxon and
Lago policies and compensation
systems was presented by the
Department Managers and
Employee Relations personnel. Mr.
Joe Quinton, Employee Relations
Assistant Manager is presenting his
part on ”Exxon, EIA and Lago
Corporate structure.”



EMPL. INFO

Exxon is also involved in a major effort to adjust its
refining and marketing facilities to prevailing
conditions, which means, reducing the size of the
Company’s assets in those activities and improving those
that remain.

That effort involves the selling of surplus or non-
productive refineries, upgrading of efficient refineries,
scrapping of surplus ships, consolidating of marketing
and distribution terminals and reducing the number of
service stations. Along with these actions, Exxon is also
reducing the number of employees to those required to
operate efficiently the equipment remaining after
downsizing the Company.

Transshipping business to decline
Transshipping business may eventually disappear.
Lago’s own transshipping facilities have a capacity of
650 MBD, but for the year through August, usage of



from page |



these facilities have amounted to only 90 MBD. The
forecast provided by the transportation and shipping
company in New York indicates there may be no usage
whatsoever for this equipment beginning next year.
Lago receives less oil

Since March of this year, Lago has been receiving only
210 MBD instead of the 300 MBD from Venezuela. In
making this reduction, Venezuela is acting in
conformance with the production limit imposed on them
by OPEC. Simultaneously that -country is also
attempting to diversify its crude outlets. It is doing this
by placing crude oils in the U.S. refineries that have new
equipment designed to handle heavy crude and by
placing some of their oil in Germany with a company
they recently purchased 50% interest in. If Lago is unable
to acquire more than 200 MBD of crude, it will have to
adopt. whatever measures necessary to enable the
refinery to operate economically at 200 MBD.

SEPT./OKT. 1983



Lago’s outlook

If Lago continues to receive 200 MBD, the refinery must
be adjusted in whatever manner necessary to enable it to
be profitable at 200 MBD. This means Lago has to
upgrade some units, shutdown surplus units, curtail
drastically the use of contractors, reduce its workforce so
the Company can operate efficiently at 200 MBD, and
do anything else to control operating costs
To satisfy contractual commitments Lago is presently
also refining some heavy Middle East crude.
not make any money or lose any money by processing
these crudes when the base cost of the refinery is
supported by the 210 MBD of Venezuelan crude.

More emphasis on Safety
Lago is presently acting upon recommendations mad¢
by the Du Pont Company, which is the largest chemical
company in the world with the best industrial safety
record. Although Du Pont had a lot of praise for Lago’s
current safety program they did make some important

Sessions.

recommendations regarding the establishment of higher
standards of safety performance by insisting that safety
rules and procedures be followed and by conducting
management safety inspections. Although we have
worked more than 3 million manhours through July
since the last disabling injury, the number of injuries for
the first 7 months have been 27 compared to 37 for all of
last year. These numbers suggest we have a lot of work to
do to make Lago safer than it already is.
Concluding remarks

Mr. Golden concluded his speech by saying that
although he was not able to give a more pleasant forecast
of the future “I do think it is important that all of us
thoroughly understand the seriousness of the situation
we are facing. By doing so, we should be able to adjust to
it and by working together, solve those obstacles needed
to enable us to operate profitably at the lower level of
crude availability forecasted”

Perspectivanan di Lago

Si Lago sigi hafia 200 mil barril pa dia, e refineria mester
wordo ahusta na cualkier manera cu ta necesario pa e
por ta lucrativo na 200 mil barril pa dia. Esei ta nificd cu
Lago mester mehora algun di su unidadnan, baha
unidadnan cu ta dimas, reduci e uzo di contratistanan,
reduci e cantidad di trahadornan pa asina e compania
por opera eficientemente na 200 mil barril pa dia, y haci
cualkier otro cos pa controld costonan di operacion. Pa
cumpli cu obligacion di contratnan Lago actualmente
tambe ta refinando crudo di Medio-Oriente. Lago no ta
gana ni perde placa door di procesa e crudo aki ora cu e
preis basico die refineria ta wordo sostené pa e 210 mil
barril pa dia di crudo Venezolano.

Mas enfasis ariba Seguridad
Actualmente Lago ta actuando ariba
recomendacionnan haci pa Du Pont Company, cual tae
compania quimica mas grandi na mundo cu e miho
record di seguridad industrial. Aunke cu Du Pont tin
hopi elogio pa Lago su programa actual di Seguridad,
nan a haci algun recomendacionnan importante tocante
e establecimiento di normanan mas halto pa ehecucion
di seguridad door di insisti pa sigi regla y proceduranan
di seguridad y door di conduci inspeccionnan di
seguridad di gerencia. Aunke cu nos a traha mas cu 3
million ora obreril desde e ultimo herida incapacitante, e
cantidad di heridanan pa e prome 7 lunanan tabata 27
compara cu 37 pa henter afia pasa. E cifranan aki ta
sugeri cu nos tin hopi trabao cu mester wordo haci, pa
haci Lago mas sigur cu e ta caba.

Notanan final

Sr. Golden a conclui su discurso bisando cu aunke e no
por a duna un pronosticacion mas agradable pa futuro,
ela sigi bisa:

A time to listen



SEPT./OKT. 1983



A time to speak ...



; the Employee Information Sessions hosted by
President Jerry Golden, employees had the opportunity
to ask questions to the President. The following is a
sample of the questions asked with their corresponding
responses (non-verbatim):

Q: Will their be exploration of oil in Aruba? And if so,
will Exxon be exploring?

om YO

Dave Fleming ...

A: Yes, I believe there will eventually be exploration of
oil in Aruba. But if so, it won't be done until the
necessary laws and regulations are in place. As to Exxon,
once the problem is solved, and Aruba decides it wants to
explore the oil, the Government will ask for bids from
interested companies. Exxon Corporation will be one of
those companies and, because of our existing interests
here, we would certainly hope to be one of the companies
to win rights.

Q: If Lago remains with only 200.000 barrels a day of
crude ro refine, with how much would manpower be cut?



Robert di Elsi ....





A: At this point we are not really sure. My guess would
be 150-200 men. This number does not include those
already goung on pension, or contractors. It does include
employees on all levels, covered employees and National
MPT’s as well as expatriates.

Q: You say we have economic problems, why isn’t Lago
cutting costs of its upper management?

A: Lago is looking at cutting the costs at all levels
including fringe benefits. Except for in emergency cases,
Exxon normally wouldn’t reduce salaries of _ its
employees but cuts back on the number of people

Q: When will we know more about Lago’s future?

A: In December we will be able to have a more definite
picture of Lago’s future for two reasons. In December
(Venezuela will hold its presidential election and we
don’t think it will make any agreements with us before
that), we should have a better idea on the amount of
crude we will be receiving from Venezuela. Secondly, we
are expecting to have our studies on Lago’s future
outlook completed in December.



C eo

Cheryll de Witt ...

Communications Philosophy

Through the Employee Information Sessions,
employees had the opportunity to receive information
and answers to their questions. As such, Lago’s
business philosophy on communications was partly
fulfilled. The statement on the Company’s philosophy
on communications is as follows:

”The Company believes in frank and timely
communications to employees, customers,

government, media, and the general public to

the degree required to permit an adequate
understanding of the Company’s activities.
Communications up, down and across all levels
of the organization are valued.

Diversity of views freely expressed, when faced
in an open-minded and collaborative way, can
lead to a better understanding of problems and
to better solutions. Employees are encouraged
to say what they think and believe to be true and
not restrict themselves only to what they think
others want to hear”’.

20 employees attended a two-day
orientation program for new MPT's
in September. Extensive informa-
tion on Lago operations,
departmental functions, Exxon and
Lago policies and compensation
systems was presented by the
Department Managers and
Employee Relations personnel. Mr.
Joe Quinton, Employee Relations
Assistant Manager is presenting his
part on "Exxon, EIA and Lago
Corporate structure."
cont. from page 1 I
Exxon is also involved in a major ellort to adjust its
refining and marketing facilities to prevailing
conditions, which means, reducing the size of the
Company 's assets in those activities and improving those
that remain.
That ellort involves the selling of surplus or non-
productive refineries, upgrading of ellicient refineries,
scrapping of surplus ships. consolidating of marketing
and distribution terminals and reducing the number of
service stations. Along with these actions, Exxon is also
reducing the number of employees to those required to
operate elliciently the equipment remaining after
downsizing the Company.
Transshipping business to decline
Transshipping business may eventually disappear.
Lago's own transshipping facilities have a capacity of
650 MBD, but for the year through August, usage of
V Aj
these facilities have amounted to only 90 MBD. The
forecast provided by the transportation and shipping
company in New York indicates there may be no usage
whatsoever lor this equipment beginning next year.
Lago receives less oil
Since March of this year, Lago has been receiving only
210 MBD instead of the 300 MBD from Venezuela. In
making this reduction, Venezuela is acting in
confobmance with the production limit imposed on them
by OPEC. Simultaneously, that count r\ is also
attempting to diversify its crude outlets. It is doing this
by placing crude oils in the L'.S. refineries that have newN
equipment designed to handle heavy crude and by
placing some of their oil in Germany with a company
they recently purchased 50% interest in. IfLago is unable
to acquire more than 200 MBD of crude, it will have to
adopt whatever measures necessary\ to enable the
refinery to operate economically at 200 MBD.
Lago's outlook
If Lago continues to receive 200 IMBI). the iclini \ must
ble adjusted in \whale\ ci manner necessai\ to enablec it to
be profitable at 200 MlBDI. This means Lago has to
upgrade some units, shutdown surplus units. ci tail
drastically the use of contiaclots. reduce its w orkloi c so
the Company can operate eflicientl\ at 200 IMBI). and
do anything else to control opt'iating costs.

More emphasis on Safety
Lago is presently acting upon Ircommendations made
by the Du Pont Compan\. \ which is the lalqgest ( hennial
company in the woldd with the best ilndustll i sa-et\
record. Although Du Pont had a lot of pi)aise lot lao's

Concluding remarks
Mi. Golden includedd his speech Ib saying that
although he was not able to give a lmole pleasant forecast
of the future "I do think it is important that all of us
thoroughly\ understand the seriousness of the situation
we are facing. By doing so, we should be able to adjust to
it and bI working together, solve those obstacles needed
to enable us to operate profitably at the low er level of
crude availability forecasted".

E elticr/o e\ ta en\ olve e bendcmento di relinerianan cu

iefinerianan. dcshaci di barcunan cu ta dimas,
consolidacion di terminalnan di vendemento y
distribution y reduction di e cantidad di stacionnan di
servicio Hunto cu esaki, Exxon tambe ta reduciendo e
cantidad di empleadonan na un cantidad cu ta necesario
pa operA elicientemcnte e equipo cu ta keda atras
despues di a reduce tamafio di e compania.
Negoshi di transbordacion ta baha
Negoshi di transbordacion, eventualmente lo
desaparecc. Iago su facilidadnan di transbordacion tin
un capacidad di 650 mil barril pa dia. Pero durante e afia
aki te na luna di Agosto e uzo di e facilidadnan aki a yega
solamente te 90 mil barril pa dia. E pron6stico duna pa e
compania di transportation y carga na New York ta
indica cu posiblemente lo no tin uzo pa e instalacionnan
aki cuminzando otro afia.
Lago lo ricibi menos azeta
Desde luna di Maart di e afia aki, Lago ta ricibiendo
solamente 210 mil barril pa dia en bez di e 300 mil barril
pa dia lor di Venezuela. Cu e reduction aki, Venezuela
ta cumpli cu e limited di production cu a wordo impon6
ariba dje door di OPEC. Alavez e pais aki tambe ta
purbando na diversificd su distribution di crudo. E ta
hasi esaki door di hiba crudo pa refinerianan na Merca
cu tin equipo nobo disefia pa refine crudo pisA y door di
hiba parti di su crudo Alemania pa un compania di cual
e tin 50% di e accionnan.
Si Lago no logra di hafia mas cu 200 mil barril di crudo
pa dia, Lago lo mester tuma cualkier media necesario
pa e refineria por opera economicamente na 200 mil
barril pa dia.
Perspectivanan di Lago
Si Lago sigi hafia 200 mil barril pa dia, e relineria mester
wordo ahusta na cualkier manera cu ta necesario pa e
por ta lucrative na 200 mil barril pa dia. Esei ta nifici cu
Lago mester mehora algun di su unidadnan, baha
unidadnan cu ta dimas, reduce e uzo di contratistanan,
reduce e cantidad di trahadornan pa asina e compania
por operi eficientemente na 200 mil barril pa dia, y haci
cualkier otro cos pa control costonan di operation. Pa
cumpli cu obligacion di contratnan Lago actualmente
tambe ta refinando crudo di Medio-Oriente. Lago no ta
gana ni perde placa door di process e crudo aki ora cu e
preis basico di e refineria ta wordo sosten6 pa e 210 mil
barril pa dia di crudo Venezolano.
Mas enfasis ariba Seguridad
Actualmente Lago ta actuando ariba
recomendacionnan haci pa Du Pont Company, cual ta e
compania quimica mas grand na mundo cu e miho
record di seguridad industrial. Aunke cu Du Pont tin
hopi elogio pa Lago su program actual di Seguridad,
nan a haci algun recomendacionnan important tocante
e establecimiento di normanan mas halto pa ehecucion
di seguridad door di insist pa sigi regla y proceduranan
di seguridad y door di conduct inspeccionnan di
seguridad di gerencia. Aunke cu nos a traha mas cu 3
million ora obreril desde e ultimo herida incapacitante, e
cantidad di heridanan pa e prome 7 lunanan tabata 27
comparA cu 37 pa center afia pasa. E ciliranan aki ta
sugeri cu nos tin hopi trabao cu mester word haci, pa
haci Lago mas sigur cu e ta caba.
Notanan final
Sr. Golden a conclui su discurso bisando cu aunke e no
por a duna un pronosticacion mas agradable pa fituro,
ela sigi bisa:
"Mi ta kere cu ta important pa nos tur comprende bon
cla e seriedad di e situation cu nos ta conliontando.
Asina, nos mester por ahusti na die y door di traha hunto
resolve e obstaculonan pa asina nos por opera cu ganashi
no obstante e nivel abao di crudo disponibel, manera a

A time to listen
A time to speak ...
During the Employee Information Sessions hosted bN
President Jerry Golden. employees had the opportunity
to ask questions to the President. The following is a
sample of the questions asked with their corresponding
responses (non-verbatim):
Q: Will their be exploration
will Exxon be exploring?
of oil in Aruba? And if so,
A: At this point we are not really\ sure. \M guess would d
be 150-200 men. This number does not include those
already goung on pension. or contractors. It does include
employees on all levels, covered emplo ecs and National
MPT's as well as expatriates.
Q: You sa\ w e have economic problems. \\h isn't Lago
cutting costs of its upper management?
A: Lago is looking at cutting the costs at all levels
including fringe benefits. Except for in emei genc cases.
Exxon normal\ wouldn't reduce salaries of its
employees but cuts back on the numbci of people.
Q: When will \\e know more about Lago's future'
A: In December \\e w ill be able to have a moic dleinitt
picture of Lago's future Ibl two reasons. In Decembec
(Venezuela will hold its presidential election and \1c
don't think it \\ill make an\ agreements \\ith i below ie
that), we should have a better idea on the amount of
crude we will be recei\ ing liom V'eneztuela. Secondll \\ c
are expecting to haxe our studies on Lag o's fiture
outlook completed in December
Dave Fleming ...
A: Yes, I believe there will eventually be exploration of
oil in Aruba. But if so, it won't be done until the
necessary laws and regulations are in place. As to Exxon,
once the problem is solved, and Aruba decides it wants to
explore the oil, the Government will ask for bids from
interested companies. Exxon Corporation will be one of
those companies and, because of our existing interests
here, we would certainly hope to be one of the companies
to win rights.
Q: If Lago remains with only 200.000 barrels a da\ of
crude ro refine, with how much would manpower be cut?
Cheryll de Witt ...
Communications Philosophy
Through the Employee Information Sessions,
employees had the opportunity to receive information
and answers to their questions. As such, Lago's
business philosophy on communications was partly
fulfilled. The statement on the Company's philosophy
on communications is as follows:
"The Company believes in frank and timely
communications to employees, customers,
government, media, and the general public to
the degree required to permit an adequate
understanding of the Company's activities.
Communications up, down and across all levels
of the organization are valued.
Diversity of views freely expressed, when faced
in an open-minded and collaborative way, can
lead to a better understanding of problems and
to better solutions. Employees are encouraged
to say what they think and believe to be true and
not restrict themselves only to what they think
others want to hear".

Iprgitunlanan 'cu a \ O ido lia( i, hunro cu nan contestanan

P. Lo tin exploracion di azcta na Arubal Y si ta asina,
Exxon lo bin explore.'
C: Si. nil ta kerce cu cventualmente lo tin exploration di
a/eta a na Aiiba. Pero si ta aMna, csci lo no tuma lugar te
(cu c Ic\ nan \ ic lanmenonan necesario wordo estableci.
Pa loke la tca l Exxon, unla l)er ct e problema ta resolve y
A. uba ta dicidi nu e kier explol ae ctrudo, gobierno lo pidi
pa olertanan di companianan cu ta interest. Exxon
Cot pot action 1o ta un di e companianan ey y, pa via di e
intcresnan (< nos tin akinan. nos siguriamente lo spera di
ta un di e companianan cu lo hafia e derechonan.
P: Si Lago keda cl solamente 200.000 barril di crudo pa
dia pa reifinA cuanto hcnde o mnester kita tbr di trabao?
C: Na c moment aki nos no ta sigIu. Mi ta calcula cu e
canlidad lo ta 150 pa 200 hcnde. E cantidad aki no ta
inclui esnan cu ya ta bai cu pension, ofcontratistanan. E
ta inclui empleadonan di tui nivel, trahadornan cubri pa
contact, MPT-nan local y cmpleadonan cu ta bini di
af6.
P: Bo ta bisa cu nos tin problema economic, pakiko
Lago no ta baha gastonan di gerencia ehecutivo?
C: Lago ta busca pa reduci gastonan na tur nivel
incluvendo beneficionan extra di empleado. Cu
exception den casonan di emergencia, Exxon
normalmente lo no reduci e salarionan di su
empleadonan, pero ta reduce e cantidad di hendenan.
P: Ki tempo lo nos hafia sa mas tocante lituro di Lago?
C: Na December nos lo tin un impression mas exacto di
Lago su future pa dos motibo. Na December (lo tin
election presidential na Venezuela v nos no ta kere cu
nan lo haci ningun areglo cu nos prome cu esei), nos lo
ipo pa papia...
mester tin on miho idea di e cantidad di crudo cu nos lo
bai haiia di Venezuela. Pa di dos, na December nos ta
spera di ta cla cu nos estudionan en cuanto di Lago su
perspectivanan pa fituro.
Filosofia di Comunicacion
Pa medio di e Sesionnan di Informacion di Compania,
empleadonan tabatin e oportunidad di ricibi
information y di haya contest na nan preguntanan.
Como tal, parti di e filosofia di negoshi di
comunicacion a ser satisfact.
E filosofia di comunicacion ta manera ta sigi:
"Compania te kere den comunicacion franco y
oportuno na empleado, client, Gobierno,
medio di publicidad y public en general segun
ta necesario, pa permit comprendemento di
actividadnan di Compania. Comunicacion
ariba, abao y entire tur nivelnan di e
organization ta ser aprecid. Variedad di
opinion, express libremente, ora nan ta
confront cu un mente habri y di un manera cu
ta express colaboracion, por conduct na mihor
comprendemento di problemanan y na mihor
solution. Compania ta animd empleadonan pa
bisa loke nan ta pensa y nan ta kere cu ta
berdad, y no limited nan mes na bisa loke nan ta
pensa cu otro hende ta desed di tende".
