A perfect set-up .....

Fire on board Esso Portland

A series of long blasts were sounded on board the Esso
Portland moored at Finger Pier No. 2 on September 23.
Captain Bini of the Esso Portland called the Lago
Marine Ollice. A few minutes later, the general alarm
was sounded throughout the refinery. Fire on board the
Esso Portland .....
All ship operations were stopped and all isolation valves
were closed. The Oil Movements and Shipping tugboat
personnel were dispatched to the scene of the fire. The
Volunteer Fire Fighters, the Rescue Squad. the Rescue
Divers and all OM&S personnel involved responded
quickly to the alarm. Once at Finger Pier No. 2. the fire
trucks promptly prepared for action, while the fire
lighters assumed their position at the pier. The Rescue
Squad rushed to assist the fire victims. In the mean while,
a Fire Command Post was established at the head of
Finger Pier No. 2. It was a perfect set-up! A well-
organized and successful fire drill!

S/ uajft-

The Rescue Squad rushed to assist the fire victims .....

Although OM&S holds fire drills every quarter, this
particular drill was of special significance for several
reasons. To begin with, this exercise was the first to be
conducted since the completion of an extensive fire
response training program which had been carried out in
mid-year. "The response to the drills held prior to this
one showed room for improvement." said Don Esch.
OM&S Division Superintendent. "We were weak in our
emergency communications and in our basic knowledge
of emergency procedures." To ensure a better response.
a joint effort involving OM&S and the Industrial
Security Department was undertaken to develop an in-
house training program for OM&S supervisory
personnel. In addition to communications, the program
focused on control methods for various types of fires and
on fire response procedures Ior specific OM&S
emergency situations involving different tank designs.
manifolds and waterfront operations. While assisting in
this program. Errol Brown, Lago Fire Chief was also
involved in a related training program for the refiner \'
volunteer fire brigade, the results of which were very
evident in this emergency.
Joe van der Linde, Shipping Master in OM&S who
played a key role in developing the fire training
program, was asked to select and coordinate the
emergency simulation which occurred on this day. One
type of emergency which had been discussed in class, but
never really tested in the field, was that ofa lire on board

The Rescue Squad quickly transported the victim to the Pier.
Fire fighters were standing by...
a ship. With this idea in nind. Joe approached Captain
F. Bini of the Esso Portland \\ho agreed to gi\x his lull
support to the exercise. The situation agreed upon \(as a,
simulated lire in the ship's puniioom A nicmbIrT of the
ship's crew would also be asked to participate as an
injured person requiring removal I\ stirtchel
The final element of the simulation x\\Is that of -',1 pi isc
Don Esch. in an opinion shared b\ tlho, imolx d in the
training program stated that. "in oitde to gain a-
worthwhile assessment of the organi/atiotn's cme g1nc\ -1
response capability, it is essential that pi 101 know 'cldge of
the event be limited as much as possible to kc\
personnel." Follow-ing notification of line matnaigcmnuI
in the departments involved, the alai ni \as sounded.
In summarizing the xwrap-up session which lolloied
later in the day, Joe van der Linde noted that "most
participants regarded the drill as the best one up to nI\%,
with an excellent response and good comunlllul ationl
throughout." During the session. Captain Bli'
commented that he was pleased with the prornplnness ol
the response and felt that the joint exercise w\as quite'
worthwhile from the ship's view point.
As for the element of surprise, the drill seemed so real'
that the crew of the Esso Shimizu. moored at the othle
side of the pier, had pulled and commissioned theii hoIses
in preparation for fighting the lire on Esso Portland i om
aboard their ship, before they realized that it wxas onlx a
drill ....

The fire trucks were being prepared for action, while the fire
fighters assumed their position at the Pier .....






Carlos Kelly, the GOB Security Officer, was selected "Officer of the Third
Quarter" of 1983. As with the two former officers that were selected this
vear, Carlos was selected on the basis of his outstanding performance.
Captain Frederick Brooks presented him with a plaque that has his name
engraved on it.

Un plan perfect .....

New approaches in T/A require less downtime

Those closely involved with turnarounds know it usually
takes about six months to complete a sulphur
turnaround which involves retubing of the coalescers
and reaction furnace.
The S2AR turnaround initiated in March, however, was
completed three months earlier, in June instead of
September. Quite an achievement!
How was this accomplished? This shorter downtime was
made possible through the use of two new approaches
implemented through close planning and coordination
between the sections of the Mechanical Department,
Process Department and the Contractor. For the first
time in the field, a mill cutter, a tube puller machine and
mandrill were used instead of the customary method of
grinding and gouging. As was hoped, a greater amount
of tubes were pulled in less time.
The second contributing factor was the use of the 'gas
metal arc welding' method (g.m.a.w.). instead of the 'gas
tungsten arc welding' method (g.t.a.w.). By using the
gmaw method, the seal welding of the tube ends was
reduced by about 40 minutes per tube. Considering the
large number of tubes to be welded, one coalesce alone
has about 425 tubes, the amount of time saved was of
course considerable.
m, -lgg immhi :.

With the tube puller machine a larger amount of tubes were
pulled in less time .....
"This achievement", said Willem Palm of the Planning
Section, "is much in line with our Company objectives.
The increased speed in accomplishing work, requiring
shorter downtime of the units, results in lower
maintenance expenses and enables the Company to
start production faster".

William Smith of Exxon's Research Environmental Health
Control along with Rusette Arends and Simon Geerman of
Lago's Safety Section are checking for hydrocarbon gasses at a
leaking pump, during the two-week annual Environmental
Health Control.

"The superior repair methods leading to this obvious
increase in productivity", commented Willem, "will
probably become a standard for sulphur plant
turnarounds." The tube puller and the gmaw method
now are being employed on the SIAR turnaround.

The Instruments/Electrical Volleyball team has won so many
trophees in its two years of existence, that it started donating
them to its fans .... The team members have won most of the
trophees playing in knock-outs outside of Lago against other

Aruba teams. "We have fun," said Rudy Dirks ("Moffi").
Instruments/Electrical is also active in many other sports
activities and recently qualified second place in softball at Lago.

E empleadonan femenino tabata basta active den deported e

Some do it to lose weight, some do it to enjoy nature..... Some
walk, some run .... but everybody has fun .... It's the Hash House
Harriers. The "hashers", a group of "Lagoites" along with
family and friends, get together at a different site of Aruba every
two weeks to follow a paper trail with lots of breaks and surprises

devilishly laid out by some HHH members called "hares".
Through the "Hash" many have had the opportunity to visit
