PROJECT REDUCES
OPERATING COSTS

As part of the Light Ends Stream-
lining, three of the nine towers at
the NFAR unit were shut down.
The ”Streamlined Light Ends
Study” was conducted to find ways
of streamlining operations and
reducing costs.

In November of 1983, in an effort to upgrade the Lago
operations, the Company embarked on a refinery-wide
study, the Refinery Streamlining Study”’, to find ways
of streamlining operations, and reducing costs. Part of
that study was called Streamlined Light Ends’, which
was particularly attractive because of the drastic decline
in demand for Thermal Light Naphtha (TLN), a pro-
duct used to blend in motor gasoline.

As a result of the Light Ends study, several Light Ends
unit, such as the Alky Plant, and three of the nine towers
at NFAR, were shut down without seriously disrupting
the Company’s processing flexibility. Upon completion
of the project, all of the refinery’s Naphtha will be pro-
cessed in one Naphtha Hydrofiner (N2AR). This will re-
sult in the upgrading of TLN to Virgin Naphtha —
which is more saleable as a chemical feedstock — and in
improved butane recoveries from the fuel gas system.
In order to maximize the return on this project this year,
Management agreed to execute the project by a fast
track method instead of the more traditional sequential

approach. This, coupled with the excellent teamwork
between the Operations and Technical departments,
will result in a project realization time savings ranging
anywhere from three to six months, according to Lee
Scott, Process Designer.

We also devoted a lot of attention to the safety aspects of
operations,” said Bruce Bloom, Project Development
Section Head. “One third of the total cost of the project
was specifically designated for safety improvement. This
included the installation of an automatic cutout of the
thermal lee d to N2AR to prevent reactor temperature
runaway.

‘This project called for “new ways’ of operating the
Light Ends, using the already existing equipment to
operate the units differently,” commented Omar Booi,
who is responsible for technical assistance during the
start-up phase of the project.

The construction phase of the Light Ends project, hea-
ded up by Roger Dussault, was completed in May.



A total of 36 employees of the HDS/Fuels Division
attended a 4-hour N2AR Streamlined Operation
Training in May. The course was taught by Omar

Exxon Corporation estimated first quarter net income at
$1,475 million, up 39.2 percent from a total of $1,060
million in the 1983 first quarter. Revenue totaled
$24,906 million in the most recent quarter, up 5.1 per-
cent from $23,705 million in the first quarter of 1983.

Garvin Comments

Exxon Chairman C.C. Garvin, Jr. had the following
g sneral comments on the first quarter results:

*The strong earnings growth relative to the depressed

early 1983 period reflects improved economic conditions
and solid operating performance as well as continued
emphasis on cost control. Colder weather in this year’s
first quarter increased seasonal demand and world crude
prices remained relatively stable.
“Higher earnings were experienced in almost all of
Exxon’s business segments. Increased production ol
crude oil and natural gas was a major factor. In addition,
prior year rationalization steps permitted us to partici-
pate actively on a competitive basis in the increased
demand generated by the broad based economic reco-
very. This resulted in earnings gains in the petroleum
and chemical segments and Reliance electrical
equipment.”



A Level I Ultrasonics Inspection Methods course designed to
train refinery inspectors and engineers in the application of
ultrasonic instruments was held at Lago in late April. The
participants consisted of 4 Lago employees, 4 contractor
employees and 2 others from Esso RASA and Esso SAPA. The
ultrasonic instruments, which are used to locate corrosion
and flaws which may develop in plant operating equipment,
will contribute towards improving safe operations and relia-
bility of Lago equipment.

Exxon results 1st quarter
increased with 39.2% from 83





Commenting on the earnings of the major business seg-
ments, Mr. Garvin continued:

“Earnings from U.S. exploration and production
operations were $551 million, up $39 million from the
1983 first quarter. Increased natural gas deliveries and
improved prices for gas helped offset higher exploration
and development expenses. The first quarter 1983 earn-
ings reflected a provision of almost $100 million fon
certain regulatory DOE (Department of Energy
matters.



Earnings from U.S. petroleum refining and mar-
keting operations rose {rom breakeven in the 1983 first
quarter to $61 million in the most recent quarter. A four
percent increase in the volume of petroleum product
sales accounted for most of the improvement, led by
heatir
material costs and operating cost reductions also contri-
buted to the earnings gain, but were somewhat offset by
lower selling prices in the highly competitive market
environment.

off and motor gasoline sales gains. Lower raw



’ Earnings [rom foreign exploration and production
operations went up by $144 million to $730 million in
the first quarter 1984, as a result of higher production
North Sea crude oil production was at record levels, up
59 thousands barrels per day (KBD) to 418 KBD. Gas
volumes also increased, primarily in Europe. In the Far
East, Australian and Malaysian crude oil production
continued to increase, rising 67 KBD to 310 KBD

“Earnings from foreign petroleum refining and
marketing operations were $116 million, up from $92
million in the 1983 first quarter. Strong demand in mz jor
markets abroad contributed to a six percent increase in
petroleum product sales volumes. Margins remained
depressed and were similar to first quarter 1983 levels;
however, recent dollar weakening and corresponding
reductions in local crude oil supply costs of overseas
alfiliates provided some improvement.

Worldwide chemicals earnings totaled $12] mil-
lion in the first quarter of 1984, up $89 million from the
1983 first quarter. The economic recovery, both domes-
tically and abroad, was a major factor in the earnings
growth. In the U.S., a 40 percent increase in sales volu-
mes raised earnings to $54 million. Abroad, earnings
were up due to 25 percent higher sales volumes and
better margins.



Worldwide capital and exploration expenditures
totaled $1,541 million in the 1984 first quarter, down 34
percent from the 1983 first quarter. Expenditures in the
U.S. totaled $650 million, down 45 percent. A majo1
factor in the decline in expenditures was the absence ol
ollshore lease purchases in the first quarter of 1984 com-
pared to $250 million in 1983. For the lull year 1984, it is
expected that worldwide expenditures will be about $9.5
billion, up from $9.0 billion in 1983

»Reliance Electric Company operations earned $5
million in the first quarter of 1984 contrasted to the $16
million loss incurred during the first three months of last
year. Sales increases of 13 percent, along with cost reduc-
tions, contributed to the upturn.”

Presidente di Exxon C.C. Garvin, Jr. a duna e siguiente
comentarionan general ariba e resultadonan die promé

“E aumento fuerte di ganashi relativo na e periodo

Ganashi tabata mas halto den casi tur e segmentonan di

pa participa activamente ariba un base competidor den
e aumento di demanda, genera door di e recuperacion
economico ariba un base amplio. Esaki a conduci na
aumento di ganashi den segmentonan di petroleo y qui-
mica y equipo electrico di Reliance.

Comentando ariba e ganashi di e segmentonan principal
di negoshi, Sr. Garvin a continua:

“Ganashi di e operacionnan di exploracion y pro-
duccion na Merca tabata $551 million, un aumento di
$39 million compara cu e prome trimestre 1983. Un
aumento den e entrega di gas natural y mehoracion den

diexploracion y desaroyo. E ganashi dene prome trimes-
tre di 1983 ta refleha un provision di casi $100 million pa
cierto asuntonan regulatorio di e Departamento di
Energia.

’Ganashi di operacionnan di refinacion y benta di

nan di benta mas abao riba e mercado sumamente

“Ganashi di operacionnan di exploracion y produc-
cion den exterior a subi cu $144 million te $730 million

°©= JOGGING’? -~

fun but
hazardous

In the past few years, thousands of people of all different
ages and types have taken up jogging. If you are one of
these people or are thinking about starting a jogging
program, there are some basic things you should know.

Joggers jog for many reasons. Some do it for the increa-
sed fitness and sense of well being. Others do it to lose
weight or in the belief that it will help them to live longer.
There is evidence that people, especially men, who
excercise regularly, live longer than those who do not.
The main benefit of jogging is that it strengthens your
heart and lungs. But, if you want to jog to lose weight,

you have a long way to go: about 120 kilometers to burn
up one kilogram of fat. Jogging can help in a weight loss
program, but a diet is more important. And any effort to
increase sweating while jogging in the hopes of increas-
ing weight loss is not only foolish, but dangerous.

In fact, overheating i is one of the major hazards of

jogging in Aruba, especially for people who are not
acclimatized. The best time for jogging is in the early
morning or late evening. Clothing should be light, loose,
and brief. An adequate intake of water is also important.
It is best to start off by jogging three days a week, lor
about 15 minutes, and to increase the time and the
frequency as your endurance increases. The pace should
be a talking pace’’, that is, you should be able to talk to
a companion without feeling out of breath while you jog.
A number of minor injuries occur to joggers because
of overuse of muscles and ligaments which are not used to
the exertion. It isa good habit to doa series of stretching
exercises before starting to jog, and afterwards to take a
cooling off walk.

One of the advantages of jogging is that it does not
require a spec ial loc ation or equipme nt. However, a
number of irritating problems can be avoided by inves-
ting in good quality running shoes and by jogging on a
smooth level and soft surface. Likewise, some simple
exercises to strengthen the muscles of the feet and legs
can help to ward off injuries.

Almost everyone can jog. People with heart disease o1
other serious medical problems and people over 50,
should consult their doctor before starting a jogging
program. Jogging can be a valuable and enjoyable
activity if one is aware of the risks, and takes the
necessary steps to avoid them.

Exxon Corporation estimated first quarter net income at
$1,475 million, up 39.2 percent from a total of $1,060
million in the 1983 first quarter. Revenue totaled
$24,906 million in the most recent quarter, up 5.1 per-
cent from $23,705 million in the first quarter of 1983.

Garvin Comments

Exxon Chairman C.C. Garvin, Jr. had the following
g sneral comments on the first quarter results:

*The strong earnings growth relative to the depressed

early 1983 period reflects improved economic conditions
and solid operating performance as well as continued
emphasis on cost control. Colder weather in this year’s
first quarter increased seasonal demand and world crude
prices remained relatively stable.
“Higher earnings were experienced in almost all of
Exxon’s business segments. Increased production ol
crude oil and natural gas was a major factor. In addition,
prior year rationalization steps permitted us to partici-
pate actively on a competitive basis in the increased
demand generated by the broad based economic reco-
very. This resulted in earnings gains in the petroleum
and chemical segments and Reliance electrical
equipment.”



A Level I Ultrasonics Inspection Methods course designed to
train refinery inspectors and engineers in the application of
ultrasonic instruments was held at Lago in late April. The
participants consisted of 4 Lago employees, 4 contractor
employees and 2 others from Esso RASA and Esso SAPA. The
ultrasonic instruments, which are used to locate corrosion
and flaws which may develop in plant operating equipment,
will contribute towards improving safe operations and relia-
bility of Lago equipment.

increased with 39.2% from 83





Commenting on the earnings of the major business seg-
ments, Mr. Garvin continued:

“Earnings from U.S. exploration and production
operations were $551 million, up $39 million from the
1983 first quarter. Increased natural gas deliveries and
improved prices for gas helped offset higher exploration
and development expenses. The first quarter 1983 earn-
ings reflected a provision of almost $100 million fon
certain regulatory DOE (Department of Energy
matters.



Earnings from U.S. petroleum refining and mar-
keting operations rose {rom breakeven in the 1983 first
quarter to $61 million in the most recent quarter. A four
percent increase in the volume of petroleum product
sales accounted for most of the improvement, led by
heatir
material costs and operating cost reductions also contri-
buted to the earnings gain, but were somewhat offset by
lower selling prices in the highly competitive market
environment.

off and motor gasoline sales gains. Lower raw



’ Earnings [rom foreign exploration and production
operations went up by $144 million to $730 million in
the first quarter 1984, as a result of higher production
North Sea crude oil production was at record levels, up
59 thousands barrels per day (KBD) to 418 KBD. Gas
volumes also increased, primarily in Europe. In the Far
East, Australian and Malaysian crude oil production
continued to increase, rising 67 KBD to 310 KBD

“Earnings from foreign petroleum refining and
marketing operations were $116 million, up from $92
million in the 1983 first quarter. Strong demand in mz jor
markets abroad contributed to a six percent increase in
petroleum product sales volumes. Margins remained
depressed and were similar to first quarter 1983 levels;
however, recent dollar weakening and corresponding
reductions in local crude oil supply costs of overseas
alfiliates provided some improvement.

Worldwide chemicals earnings totaled $12] mil-
lion in the first quarter of 1984, up $89 million from the
1983 first quarter. The economic recovery, both domes-
tically and abroad, was a major factor in the earnings
growth. In the U.S., a 40 percent increase in sales volu-
mes raised earnings to $54 million. Abroad, earnings
were up due to 25 percent higher sales volumes and
better margins.



Worldwide capital and exploration expenditures
totaled $1,541 million in the 1984 first quarter, down 34
percent from the 1983 first quarter. Expenditures in the
U.S. totaled $650 million, down 45 percent. A majo1
factor in the decline in expenditures was the absence ol
ollshore lease purchases in the first quarter of 1984 com-
pared to $250 million in 1983. For the lull year 1984, it is
expected that worldwide expenditures will be about $9.5
billion, up from $9.0 billion in 1983

»Reliance Electric Company operations earned $5
million in the first quarter of 1984 contrasted to the $16
million loss incurred during the first three months of last
year. Sales increases of 13 percent, along with cost reduc-
tions, contributed to the upturn.”

Garvin ta Comenta

Presidente di Exxon C.C. Garvin, Jr. a duna e siguiente
comentarionan general ariba e resultadonan die promé
trimestre:

“E aumento fuerte di ganashi relativo na e periodo
depresivo na cuminzamento di 1983 ta reflehd meho-
ranza di e condicionnan economico y funcionamiento
sélido di operacion hunto cu e énfasis continuo ariba
control di gastonan. Temponan mas [rieuw den e prome
trimestre die aha akia aumenta e demanda pa e tempo-
rada aki y preisnan di crudo rond di mundo a keda
relativamente stabiel.

Ganashi tabata mas halto den casi tur e segmentonan di
negoshi di Exxon. Aumento den produccion di crudo y
gas natural tabata un factor principal. Adicionalmente,
pasonan di racionalidad den e afia anterior a permiti nos
pa participa activamente ariba un base competidor den
e aumento di demanda, genera door di e recuperacion
economico ariba un base amplio. Esaki a conduci na
aumento di ganashi den segmentonan di petroleo y qui-
mica y equipo electrico di Reliance.

Comentando ariba e ganashi di e segmentonan principal
di negoshi, Sr. Garvin a continua:

“Ganashi di e operacionnan di exploracion y pro-
duccion na Merca tabata $551 million, un aumento di
$39 million compara cu e prome trimestre 1983. Un
aumento den e entrega di gas natural y mehoracion den
preisnan di gas a yuda compensa e aumento di gastonan
diexploracion y desaroyo. E ganashi dene prome trimes-
tre di 1983 ta refleha un provision di casi $100 million pa
cierto asuntonan regulatorio di e Departamento di
Energia.

’Ganashi di operacionnan di refinacion y benta di
petroleo na Estados Unidos a subi di un ’break-
even”’ den e prome trimestre di 1983 pa $61 million dene
Wimestre mas recien. Un aumento di cuatro porciento
den e volumen di benta di productonan di petroleo a
percura pa mayoria di e mehoracion, encabeza pa
aumentonan den benta di “heating oil” y gasolin pa
motor. Gastonan mas abao pa materianan prima y
reduccion di gastonan di operacion tambe a contribuina
e aumento di ganashi, pero a wordo inlluencia pa preis-
nan di benta mas abao riba e mercado sumamente
competidor

“Ganashi di operacionnan di exploracion y produc-
cion den exterior a subi cu $144 million te $730 million
den € prome trimestre 1984, pa motibo di produccion
mas halto. Produccion di crudo di Noordzee tabata na
un nivel record, y a subi cu 59 mil baril pa dia te 418 mil
baril pa dia. Volumennan di gas tambe a subi, principal-
mente na Europa. Na Lehano Oriente, produccion di
crudo na Australia y Malaysia a sigi aumenta, subiendo
67 mil baril pa dia te 310 baril diario.

*Ganashi di operacionnan di refinacion y benta di
petroleo den exterior tabata $116 million, un
aumento di $92 million compara cu e prome cuarto di
1983. Un demanda grandi riba e mercadonan principal
den exterior a contribui na un aumento di seis porciento
den e volumen di benta di productonan di petroleo.
Margennan a keda rebaha y tabata igual na e nivel die
prome trimestre di 1983; sinembargo, debilitacion recien
di dollar y reduccionnan correspondiente den gastonan
local di suministracion di crudo di afiliadonan den exte-
rior a percura pa algun mehoracion.

”Ganashi mundial di productonan quimico a suma
na $121 million den e prome trimestre di 1984, un
aumento di $89 million di e prome trimestre di 1983. E
recobro economico, domesticamente y den exterior,
tabata e factor principal den e aumento di ganashi. Den
E.U., un aumento di 40% den ventaa hisa ganashicu $54
million. Den exterior, ganashi a subi pa motibo cu venta
tabata 25% mas halto y door cu tabatin mihor
margennan.

“E total di gastonan di capital y exploracion rond
di mundo tabata $1541 million den e prome trimestre
di 1984, un rebaho di 34 porciento compara cu e prome
trimestre di 1983. Gastonan total na Estados Unidos
tabata $650 million, un rebaho di 45%. Un factor mayor
den e rebaho di gastonan tabata cu no tabata tin “’off-
shore lease purchases” den e prome trimestre di 1984,
compara cu $250 million na 1983. Pa henter e ania 1984,
ta wordo spera cu gastonan rond di mundo lo ta aproxi-
madamente $9.5 billion, un aumento for di e $9 billion
na 1983.

»*Operacionnan di Reliance Electric Corporation
tabata tin un ganashi di $5 million den e prome trimestre
di 1984, contrastante na e perdida di $16 million sufri
durante e prome tres lunanan di afia pasa. Aumentonan
den benta di 13 porciento, hunto cu reduccion di gasto-
nan, a contribui na un cambio favorable.

°©= JOGGING’? -~

fun but
hazardous

In the past few years, thousands of people of all different
ages and types have taken up jogging. If you are one of
these people or are thinking about starting a jogging
program, there are some basic things you should know.

Joggers jog for many reasons. Some do it for the increa-
sed fitness and sense of well being. Others do it to lose
weight or in the belief that it will help them to live longer.
There is evidence that people, especially men, who
excercise regularly, live longer than those who do not.
The main benefit of jogging is that it strengthens your
heart and lungs. But, if you want to jog to lose weight,

you have a long way to go: about 120 kilometers to burn
up one kilogram of fat. Jogging can help in a weight loss
program, but a diet is more important. And any effort to
increase sweating while jogging in the hopes of increas-
ing weight loss is not only foolish, but dangerous.

In fact, overheating i is one of the major hazards of

jogging in Aruba, especially for people who are not
acclimatized. The best time for jogging is in the early
morning or late evening. Clothing should be light, loose,
and brief. An adequate intake of water is also important.
It is best to start off by jogging three days a week, lor
about 15 minutes, and to increase the time and the
frequency as your endurance increases. The pace should
be a talking pace’’, that is, you should be able to talk to
a companion without feeling out of breath while you jog.
A number of minor injuries occur to joggers because
of overuse of muscles and ligaments which are not used to
the exertion. It isa good habit to doa series of stretching
exercises before starting to jog, and afterwards to take a
cooling off walk.

One of the advantages of jogging is that it does not
require a spec ial loc ation or equipme nt. However, a
number of irritating problems can be avoided by inves-
ting in good quality running shoes and by jogging on a
smooth level and soft surface. Likewise, some simple
exercises to strengthen the muscles of the feet and legs
can help to ward off injuries.

Almost everyone can jog. People with heart disease o1
other serious medical problems and people over 50,
should consult their doctor before starting a jogging
program. Jogging can be a valuable and enjoyable
activity if one is aware of the risks, and takes the
necessary steps to avoid them.

in the first quarter of this year, Lago introduced the Card-
key system in its office buildings. The hardware involved
cludes a closed circuit t.v. at Gate no. 3, intercoms at the
office buildings and a Control Unit at Gate no. 3. The
Control Unit consists of a Dialog VDT (Video Display
Terminal) and an Alarm VDT. The Dialog VDT is used to
program cards, open doors and is also a good
investigating tool. The Alarm VDT and printer shows all
irregular card transactions, registers all alarms and even







displays a map of the office buildings.
