Lago Scores Another First Place

The latest National Safety
Council bulletin shows that in
1972 — again — Lago is No. 1
in the Council's petroleum safety
contest. This means that Lago
was the refinery with the lowest
number of disabling injuries
(per million manhours worked) in
1972 among the major refineries
worldwide.

Lago’s management is very
pleased with this achievement
as it proves that the company
was the safest refinery during
the past year. The company’s
president, Mr. R. L. Trusty, said:
"This record could only have
been achieved through the ef-
forts and constant safety aware-
ness of our employees, a fact
of which we are proud.”

A plaque to commemorate
Lago’s First Place Award will be
presented soon to the company
by the National Safety Council.

The company has earned first
place in the annual contests
conducted by ie National See



ety Council on ten previous oc-
casions since it became a mem-
ber of the Council in 1939. The
first time was in 1949 and the
most recent was in 1971. It has
also won second place a total
of eight times during this same
period.

‘e In the Worldwide Safety Contest



The National Safety Council
based in Chicago, U.S.A., is a
privately supported, non-govern-
mental, public service organiza-
tion chartered by the United
States Congress. Its main pur-
pose is the prevention of acci-
dents on and off the job — in
industry, on the farm, at home,
on the road and at play.

Central

Controlhouse Outgrows

Capability After 4'/,-Yr. Operation

Lago’s Central Controlhouse
was originally designed to con-
trol all refinery units. Two years
after its completion the control
panels for HDS-1 units were ad-
ded without expanding the
building. However, with the ad-
dition of the present HDS-II
units, expansion of the CCH be-
came necessary.

The new CCH is double its
previous size, fully aircondition-
ed and provided with a fire de-
tection and alarm system. It is
estimated to be completed this
month. The new expanded CCH is
now housing six process compu-
ters, including the new DDC-4
which was moved to its final loca-
tion in the new wing on February
22. This new computer was trans-
ported by boat from the U.S.A.
to Aruba in an airconditioned
van. This means that between
loading at the manufacturer's
plant and unloaaing at Lago this
equipment was untouched and
in afully controlled enrivonment.
In addition to being economical,
this type of transportation prov-
ided the highest degree of pro-
tection for the computer, which
is an extremely delicate and
sophisticated electronic instru-
ment.

The new DDC-4 computer is
the third addition to the com-
puter process control system.
The first three process compu-
ters were installed in May, 1968
for the refinery units. Two other
computers arrived in November,
1970 for the HDS-I units, and
the new DDC-4 is being installed
to control the HDS-II units. In
addition, there are two more
Process computers at Lago to
control oil movements. These
are located in the Oil Move-
ments Control Center.

The new HDS-Ii computer is
identical to the previous two
systems. It will be maintained by

the same GE technicians who
take care of the existing system.

In addition to the new HDS-II
desulfurization units, the new
DDC-4 computer will also handle
the HDS-I units, as control of
both HDS-l and HDS-Il units
will be consolidated in the new
wing of the Central Control-
house.

All three hydrogen plants, the
existing two units of HDS-!l and
the new one of HDS-ll, will be
controlled by the DDC-3 compu-
ter.

The design specifications for
the new computer and extension
of the Central Controlhouse
were developed by C. O. Per-
sons of MCS. The software was
assembled by B. L. Nelson of
MCS. Last January, the new
DDC-4 computer was checked
at the manufacturer's plant in
Phoenix, Arizona, by R. R.
Amaya and F. Bikker of the In-
strumentation Section and B. L.
Nelson of MCS.

Consolidation of controls for
HDS-I and HDS-II units and mo-
difications for some of the re-
finery units are handled hy R

"Mi ta aprecia principalmente e
actitud cooperativo y positivo di

An excellent demonstration of
what teamwork, planning and
skills can achieve was demon-
strated with the recent turn-
around of the Heavy Vacuum
Gas Oil Hydrodesulfurization
Unit 26 (D2AR) in record time:
6 days (from oil out to oil in).

The approach of a turnaround
team brought about the coope-
ration of men from Process-HDS,
Mechanical’s Planning, Turn-
around and Shop Forces, Mech-
anical Engineering, Materials
and Technical-Process Engin-
eering divisions’ personnel and
the nine-man specialized group
of the California Catalyst Com-
pany. They worked long hours
and extra shifts to accomplish
this turnaround, which was un-
der general direction of Turn-
around Coordinator Joe Carroll.

Following a very effective, ef-
ficient and smoothly implement-
ed shutdown of the unit, each
member of the team was assign-
ed a specific task with target
dates for completion of each
job. Using a Critical Path sche-
dule, the progress of each job
was closely followed.

The work accomplished re-
quired three shift coverage, and
included replacing two ex-
changer bundles with titanium
bundles, pulling and cleaning
three other tube bundles, and
retubing one bundle; decoking
the furnace, and servicing the
compressor. The E.I.S. person-

nel were also on hand to in-
spect materials and equipment.

Some of the work the forty-
five Mechanical tradesmen car-
ried out required special efforts,
such as tightening large bolts
on the heads of the exchangers
to withstand a test of 1100 !bs.
The Mechanica! tradesmen also
did preparatory work to erect
scaffolds and operated heavy
and light lifting equipment.

A job requiring special skills
was the removal of the top crust
of catalyst from the two reactor>
in an inert atmosphere, and
loading several thousand pounds:
of catalyst into each reactor.
This was handled by a specially
trained and equipped team of
"California Catalyst’. To assure
satisfactory condition of the
catalyst beds, engineers of Pro-
cess Engineering also entered
the reactors.

The Mechanical supervisors
assigned to this turnaround
were: D. Leest, E. Croes, R. de
Mey, E. Ruiz, S. Molina, J. Wer-
leman, Th. Ruiz and |. Schwengle.
Coordinators were |. Donata and
D. V. Croes, with K. H. Brook as
planner and Zone Supervisor E.
A. Halley directing the Con-
struction & Turnaround Zone
team. Process direction during
the turnaround was provided by
HDS Process Foremen W. P.
Eagan and S. O’Mara.

In a letter Joe Carroll com-
mended all D2AR Turnaround
participants: "I particularly ap-
preciate the cooperative and
positive attitude of all partici-
pants of the turnaround team.”

This is one of the groups of

Metal Tradesmen who were es-

pecially assigned to retube the

bundles needed for the D2AR
turnaround.

In this tank water from several crude tanks is collected first before
being conducted to the separators. The new crude tank dewatering
system assures that clean water will go into the harbor.

Den e tanki aki, awa for di varios tanki di crudo ta ser colecta
promer di ser hiba pa e separadornan. E sistema nobo pa saka awa
for di tanki di crudo ta asegura cu awa limpi ta bai den haaf.

New Dewatering System Helps Keep
Harbor Clean, Reduces Oil Loss

Another effort by Lago to help
keep our harbor clean and to
reduce oil loss is the introduc-
tion of the new dewatering sys-
tem for several crude oil tanks

Instead of letting the water
drained from tanks go directly
to the sewers and then to the





separators, the water is now al-
lowed first to collect and settle
into Tank 180, which has a cap-
acity of 60,000 barrels. From this

an water flows to the




tank



separa and into the harbor.
The first tanks tied into the
were the four largest



crude tanks Nos. 913, 914, 760
and 761 (total capacity 1.9 mil-
lion barrels). Later, in a second
phase of the project, ten smaller
crude tanks will be connected
to Tank 180.

In addition to its environmen-
tal control aspect, the new sys-
tem also provides a more effi-
cient and rapid way of crude
dewatering

In Tank 180, separation of oil
and water is achieved by natu-
ral settling; the water remains
at the bottom and the oil col-
lects at the top. The oil is then

recovered via a floating suction
by a new oil recovery pump
which returns the oil to crude
tankage.

Another feature of the new
system is that the water is con-
tinually drawn off from the bot-
tom of the tank via an overflow
line.

The new system was devel-
oped and designed by Bert de
Cuba of Technical-Process En-
gineering, who is now assigned
to Process-Oil Movements. Later
he also designed the second
phase of the project. The cost
of the entire project will be ap-
proximately Fis. 150,000. The
new system is operated by Julio
Kelly of Oil Movements, who is
charged with crude tank de-
watering.

Recently, Jan Smeets of Pro-
cess Engineering made a sur-
vey which confirms the effect-
iveness of the first phase of the
crude drainage facilities. Engin-
eering work is now in progress
on the second phase under di-
rection of Ty Wong of Mechani-
cal-Project Engineering Section.

Lago Scores Another First Place

The latest National Safety
Council bulletin shows that in
1972 — again — Lago is No. 1
in the Council's petroleum safety
contest. This means that Lago
was the refinery with the lowest
number of disabling injuries
(per million manhours worked) in
1972 among the major refineries
worldwide.

Lago’s management is very
pleased with this achievement
as it proves that the company
was the safest refinery during
the past year. The company’s
president, Mr. R. L. Trusty, said:
"This record could only have
been achieved through the ef-
forts and constant safety aware-
ness of our employees, a fact
of which we are proud.”

A plaque to commemorate
Lago’s First Place Award will be
presented soon to the company
by the National Safety Council.

The company has earned first
place in the annual contests
conducted by ie National See



ety Council on ten previous oc-
casions since it became a mem-
ber of the Council in 1939. The
first time was in 1949 and the
most recent was in 1971. It has
also won second place a total
of eight times during this same
period.

‘e In the Worldwide Safety Contest



The National Safety Council
based in Chicago, U.S.A., is a
privately supported, non-govern-
mental, public service organiza-
tion chartered by the United
States Congress. Its main pur-
pose is the prevention of acci-

Central

Controlhouse Outgrows

Capability After 4'/,-Yr. Operation

Lago’s Central Controlhouse
was originally designed to con-
trol all refinery units. Two years
after its completion the control
panels for HDS-1 units were ad-
ded without expanding the
building. However, with the ad-
dition of the present HDS-II
units, expansion of the CCH be-
came necessary.

The new CCH is double its
previous size, fully aircondition-
ed and provided with a fire de-
tection and alarm system. It is
estimated to be completed this
month. The new expanded CCH is
now housing six process compu-
ters, including the new DDC-4
which was moved to its final loca-
tion in the new wing on February
22. This new computer was trans-
ported by boat from the U.S.A.
to Aruba in an airconditioned
van. This means that between
loading at the manufacturer's
plant and unloaaing at Lago this
equipment was untouched and
in afully controlled enrivonment.
In addition to being economical,
this type of transportation prov-
ided the highest degree of pro-
tection for the computer, which
is an extremely delicate and
sophisticated electronic instru-
ment.

The new DDC-4 computer is
the third addition to the com-
puter process control system.
The first three process compu-
ters were installed in May, 1968
for the refinery units. Two other
computers arrived in November,
1970 for the HDS-I units, and
the new DDC-4 is being installed
to control the HDS-II units. In
addition, there are two more
Process computers at Lago to
control oil movements. These
are located in the Oil Move-
ments Control Center.

The new HDS-Ii computer is
identical to the previous two
systems. It will be maintained by

the same GE technicians who
take care of the existing system.

In addition to the new HDS-II
desulfurization units, the new
DDC-4 computer will also handle
the HDS-I units, as control of
both HDS-l and HDS-Il units
will be consolidated in the new
wing of the Central Control-
house.

All three hydrogen plants, the
existing two units of HDS-!l and
the new one of HDS-ll, will be
controlled by the DDC-3 compu-
ter.

The design specifications for
the new computer and extension
of the Central Controlhouse
were developed by C. O. Per-
sons of MCS. The software was
assembled by B. L. Nelson of
MCS. Last January, the new
DDC-4 computer was checked
at the manufacturer's plant in
Phoenix, Arizona, by R. R.
Amaya and F. Bikker of the In-
strumentation Section and B. L.
Nelson of MCS.

Consolidation of controls for
HDS-I and HDS-II units and mo-
difications for some of the re-
finery units are handled hy R

An excellent demonstration of
what teamwork, planning and
skills can achieve was demon-
strated with the recent turn-
around of the Heavy Vacuum
Gas Oil Hydrodesulfurization
Unit 26 (D2AR) in record time:
6 days (from oil out to oil in).

The approach of a turnaround
team brought about the coope-
ration of men from Process-HDS,
Mechanical’s Planning, Turn-
around and Shop Forces, Mech-
anical Engineering, Materials
and Technical-Process Engin-
eering divisions’ personnel and
the nine-man specialized group
of the California Catalyst Com-
pany. They worked long hours
and extra shifts to accomplish
this turnaround, which was un-
der general direction of Turn-
around Coordinator Joe Carroll.

Following a very effective, ef-
ficient and smoothly implement-
ed shutdown of the unit, each
member of the team was assign-
ed a specific task with target
dates for completion of each
job. Using a Critical Path sche-
dule, the progress of each job
was closely followed.

The work accomplished re-
quired three shift coverage, and
included replacing two ex-
changer bundles with titanium
bundles, pulling and cleaning
three other tube bundles, and
retubing one bundle; decoking
the furnace, and servicing the
compressor. The E.I.S. person-

nel were also on hand to in-
spect materials and equipment.

Some of the work the forty-
five Mechanical tradesmen car-
ried out required special efforts,
such as tightening large bolts
on the heads of the exchangers
to withstand a test of 1100 !bs.
The Mechanica! tradesmen also
did preparatory work to erect
scaffolds and operated heavy
and light lifting equipment.

A job requiring special skills
was the removal of the top crust
of catalyst from the two reactor>
in an inert atmosphere, and
loading several thousand pounds:
of catalyst into each reactor.
This was handled by a specially
trained and equipped team of
"California Catalyst’. To assure
satisfactory condition of the
catalyst beds, engineers of Pro-
cess Engineering also entered
the reactors.

The Mechanical supervisors
assigned to this turnaround
were: D. Leest, E. Croes, R. de
Mey, E. Ruiz, S. Molina, J. Wer-
leman, Th. Ruiz and |. Schwengle.
Coordinators were |. Donata and
D. V. Croes, with K. H. Brook as
planner and Zone Supervisor E.
A. Halley directing the Con-
struction & Turnaround Zone
team. Process direction during
the turnaround was provided by
HDS Process Foremen W. P.
Eagan and S. O’Mara.

In a letter Joe Carroll com-
mended all D2AR Turnaround
participants: "I particularly ap-
preciate the cooperative and
positive attitude of all partici-
pants of the turnaround team.”

This is one of the groups of

Metal Tradesmen who were es-

pecially assigned to retube the

bundles needed for the D2AR
turnaround.

New Dewatering System Helps Keep
Harbor Clean, Reduces Oil Loss

Another effort by Lago to help
keep our harbor clean and to
reduce oil loss is the introduc-
tion of the new dewatering sys-
tem for several crude oil tanks

Instead of letting the water
drained from tanks go directly
to the sewers and then to the





separators, the water is now al-
lowed first to collect and settle
into Tank 180, which has a cap-
acity of 60,000 barrels. From this

an water flows to the




tank



separa and into the harbor.
The first tanks tied into the
were the four largest



crude tanks Nos. 913, 914, 760
and 761 (total capacity 1.9 mil-
lion barrels). Later, in a second
phase of the project, ten smaller
crude tanks will be connected
to Tank 180.

In addition to its environmen-
tal control aspect, the new sys-
tem also provides a more effi-
cient and rapid way of crude
dewatering

In Tank 180, separation of oil
and water is achieved by natu-
ral settling; the water remains
at the bottom and the oil col-
lects at the top. The oil is then

recovered via a floating suction
by a new oil recovery pump
which returns the oil to crude
tankage.

Another feature of the new
system is that the water is con-
tinually drawn off from the bot-
tom of the tank via an overflow
line.

The new system was devel-
oped and designed by Bert de
Cuba of Technical-Process En-
gineering, who is now assigned
to Process-Oil Movements. Later
he also designed the second
phase of the project. The cost
of the entire project will be ap-
proximately Fis. 150,000. The
new system is operated by Julio
Kelly of Oil Movements, who is
charged with crude tank de-
watering.

Recently, Jan Smeets of Pro-
cess Engineering made a sur-
vey which confirms the effect-
iveness of the first phase of the
crude drainage facilities. Engin-
eering work is now in progress
on the second phase under di-
rection of Ty Wong of Mechani-
cal-Project Engineering Section.

Awa for di Tanki

Di Crudo Ta Yuda Tene Haaf Limpi

Otro esfuerzo di parti di Lago
pa tene haf limpi y reduci per-
dida di azeta ta introduccion di
un sistema nobo pa saca awa
for di azeta crudo den varios
tanki pa crudo. Envez di laga
awa cu ta worde saca for di
tankinan bai directamente den
rioolnan y di eynan pa e sepa-
radornan, e awa ta pasa promer
pa tanki 180 caminda e ta zink
den bom di e tanki ey cu tin un
capacidad di 60,000 baril. For di
e tanki anto awa limpi ta pasa
pa e separadornan y den haf.

Promer tankinan conecta cu e
sistema ta cuater di e tankinan
di mas grandi pa warda azeta
crudo aden, esta numbernan
913, 914, 760 y 761 (cu un capa-
cidad total di 1.9 miljon baril).
Despues, den segundo fase di
e projecto, diez tanki pa crudo
mas chiquito lo worde conecta
na tanki 180.

Fuera di e aspecto cu e ta
yuda tene ambiente limpi, e sis-
tema nobo tambe ta percura pa
separacion mas rapido y eficaz
di awa for di azeta crudo.

Den tanki 180 separacion di
azeta for di awa ta tuma lugar
como cu awa Cu ta mas pisa ta
zink den bom di e tanki ca-

minda e ta keda, mientras cu
azeta ta bai drief ariba awa.
Azeta cu ta drief riba awa ta
worde saca for di e tanki pa
medio di un pomp nobo cu ta
chupé afor y pasa e azeta pa
tankinan di crudo.

Un otro caracteristica di e
sistema nobo ta cu e awa ta
worde saca continuamente for
di bom di e tanki pa medio di
un tubo den e tanki.

E sistema nobo a worde de-
saroya y disenja door di Bert de
Cuba di Technical-Process En:
gineering, kende actualmente ta
traha cu Process-Oil Movements.
Despues e mes a disenja e 2do
fase di e projecto. Costo di hen-
ter e proyecto lo bira f. 150,000.
E sistema nobo ta worde opera
door di Julio Kelly di Oil Move-
ments, kende ta encarga cu
drainmento di awa for di azeta
crudo.

Recientemente Jan Smeets
di Process Engineering a haci
un estudio, cual ta confirma efi-
cacia di e promer fase di facili-
dadnan pa saca awa for di azeta
crudo. Trabao di ingenieria awor
ta progresando bao direccion di
Tai Wong di Mechanical.
