A TEN-foot-high barrel spewing oil uncontrollably on the ground is the
keynote of a huge sign painted on tank No. 217 near the Main Gate. It
fairly shouts "STOP OIL LOSS" in bright red letters so that employees
passing by will continue their collective efforts in supporting Lago's Oil
Conservation Program. The sign itself is nearly twenty-five feet high.

Aruba Hams Qet New

Savaneta Radio Shack
The evening of May 18 always will be a highly memor-
able one to members of the Aruba Amateur Radio Club.
That was the night the club, which earned government
recognition two years ago, officially opened its new club
house west of Savaneta Camp.
To mark the occasion, Irving Labega, who is acting head
of the federal radio service, pressed the transmitting key
on the CW (sending dots and dashes) set and sent a mes-
sage racing over the airways. Present were most of the
club's twenty-three members who, incidentally, are all Lago
employees. Also present at the ceremonies was Bert Dudart
of the federal radio service. One of his duties is inspecting
and improving ham radio stations.
The club obtained its new building through the efforts
of Rudi Beaujon of Mechanical-Instrument and the build-
ing's former owner G. De Veer, well-known island business
man. The structure, oddly enough, had been headquarters
for a radio station during World War II. Other members

Lago Adds Pipe
Needs to Libyan
Pipeline Order
A recent refinery cost-saving
procedure has a direct tie-in with
Esso Standard (Libya), an affi-
liate of Standard Oil Company
(N.J.). Lago is adding its thirty-
inch pipe requirements to a large
Libyan pipeline order to obtain
the advantage of a lower bulk
price and to expedite delivery. The
pipe is being ordered for Store-
house stock for holding account
in anticipation of requirements
for the new No. 3 Finger Pier.

tank construction project. Six were built.

LAGO HAS over 500 storage tanks for its crude
and finished products. They come in all shapes ;
sizes such as these shiny spheres. All have their p
pose in enabling the refinery to operate in an orde
and efficient manner.


A most common sight at Lago or any othe
refinery is the many tanks which surround th
operating units. At Lago there are hundreds an'
hundreds of tanks of all sizes, shapes and colors
They extend from one end of Lago's vast refiner:
area to the other. The varied forms and exterior
coverings of tanks are subject to many questions
about as many asked of other refinery struck
tures. The answers to these questions are as in
teresting as they are important to the efficient
operation of Lago Refinery.
All aspects surrounding tanks have purpose'
such as the primary reasons for their shapes an
colors. Why are tanks different shapes? Th'
answer is in the products they hold. Tanks an
designed specifically for the physical properties
of the products they store. Once crude oil is re
fined, its products have different composition:
and therefore have to be handled and stored ac
cording to their nature. The most interesting
design and yet the simplest is the perfect circle
or sphere tank. These tanks are perfectly rounc
because this design is capable of withstanding
the most pressure. It follows, then, that the pro
ducts stored in the sphere tanks are those tha
must be kept under pressure. Examples arI
butane and propane. These products can only b,
kept in liquid form under pressure in the spheres
If the pressure were not exerted on butane an(
propane while confined in storage, they would

Lago Men At Work .. ..


Paint Shop Tasks Are Varied

Pride in workmanship, efficiency and I
safety denote the high standards set by
men in the Mechanical Department's Paint
Shop. The same attention to detail is ap-
plied whether the job is a huge mobile
crane to be cleaned, chipped and repainted
or a swivel office chair that requires re-
finishing. When it comes to efficiency, the
Paint Shop men take pride in the fact that
they have cut the time required to com-
pletely repaint a pickup truck from the
seventy-four hours it took five years ago
to a mere thirty-six manhours today. This
is because Paint Shop employees have been
quick to accept new methods and techni-
ques and have been quick to learn proper
use of new equipment and apply this train-
ing on the job.
That Paint Shop employees are highly
safety conscious is evident in the fact that
for a record period of 1977 days, they per-
formed their duties without one man in-
curring an injury of any kind minor or
major. This impressive record was broken
by a foreign-body-in-the-eye accident which
bears no reflection on their safe work
practices in the shop.

Rescue Breathing

Film; Get Cards
Since the half-hour color film
"Rescue Breathing" was introduc-
ed by the Safety Division early
this year, a total of 2141 Lago
employees and 2378 island resi-
dents have attended the seventy-
two showings held so far. In ad-
dition to the film, which drama-
tically shows the techniques and
effectiveness of the newly-approv-
ed method of artificial respira-
tion, billfold-sized cards which il-
lustrate and briefly explain the
method have been handed out at
all showings The cards were also
recently distributed to all Lago
employees. The card, reproduced
here, should be read, studied and
carried at all times. The need
may arise when you may be able
to save a life by using the rescue
breathing technique.
The film-showing and card dis-
tribution program has been an in-
tensified effort by the Safety Di-
vision to educate everyone in the
use of the mouth-to-mouth (or
mouth-to-nose) method of artifi-
clal respiration. The film show-
ings and cards are available to
any interested group. Although
the film documentation is in Eng-
lish, the entire program intro-
duction, commentary and closing
remarks has been translated
into Paplamento so that any
group may enjoy and understand
it Gioups may obtain a showing
through the Public Relations De-
partment by telephoning H. M.
Nassy, 2137. To answer questions
the audience may have, the show-
ings are attended by E. M. O'Brien
of the Safety Division or a Med-
ical Department physician.

ale needed because of pressure ap-:
plied to the stored products These
are the tanks that contain gasolines
which, like butane and propane, will'
evaporate if not stored under pres-.
sure The products kept in the
spheroid tanks, however, do not need,
as much pressure as the products
stored in the sphere tanks. That is
the reason one type of tank is com-
pletely iound while another is flat'
on the bottom with rounded sides
and top The round and near round
tanks are perfect in their function
because the pressure needed to store
easily vaporized products is equally
distributed throughout the confining
shell of the tanks.
The third shape presented by the
tanks of Lago is the most common
big, round tank that is flat on the
bottom and top. These are the tanks
that store most of Lago's products
and all of the crude that comes in
to be processed. The largest of these
tanks -and the largest in the re-
finery are the fuel oil storage
tanks which hold 216,000 barrels.
They are 48 feet high and 180 feet
in diameter and there are eleven of
them. The majority of Lago's big,
flat tanks hold 100,000 and 150,000
barrels of oil. The products stored in
these huge tanks need little if any
These tanks have two types of
tops. One type is solid and immov-
able, the other is the floating roof
type. A floating roof is just that -
it floats on the product and rises and
falls with the level of the product
inside. Between the solid framework
of the roof and the sides of the tank
is a rubber seal that maintains con-
tact at all times. Roofs of this design
prohibit vapor space and thereby
prevent evaporation.
The huge flat storage tanks are
constructed in rings. Each ring of

around the largest tanks. Another
interesting aspect of tanks is their
foundation. Tanks rest on a sand
foundation. The tank's bottom of me-
tal sheets is laid out and welded to-
gether. Then the first side ring is
welded to the bottom. At no point is
the tank actually secured to the
foundation. Its tremendous weight
alone holds it in place. This explains
why the smaller tanks can be lifted
or floated or slid from one spot to
another as has been done at Lago.

Bottom Replacement
The non-fixed tanks enable repla-
cement of the bottom without undue
strain and with little loss of capacity.
Here's how the seemingly impossible
task is handled. Two side plates are
removed as a starter. Usually the
plates removed are from the first two
rings or courses, as they are known.
This provides a hole in the side of the
tank large enough to permit the en-
trance of a truck. Through this hole
the truck carts enough sand to cover
the old bottom and give sufficient
and stable base to a new bottom. The
plates for the new bottom are laid
out and welded together and to the
existing sides of the tank. The new
bottom is then securely in place on
top of oiled sand a few inches above
the old bottom. The plates removed
allowing passage of the truck are
replaced and the tank with a new
bottom is ready for storage duty.
If any of the plates that make up
Lago's tanks need replacement they
are taken out and new ones welded
in place. Entire rings can be replaced
should the need arise. To combat cor-
rosion inside the floating roof tanks
is a lining of gunite. This is done
when the inside of the tank, exposed
as the roof lowers, begins to show
signs of weathering. With the con-
stant maintenance administered to

Lago's tanks, the huge storage vaults
are kept in service many years. The
best example of longivity is Tank No.
1. Located in the area of the old re-
run stills, it is still in use after thir-
ty-one years.
Lago's tanks are painted black or
white or aluminum. Why some are
painted black and others white is in-
teresting and simple. It is all a mat-
ter of heat, either absorbed or reflect-
ed. Light products evaporate easily
and heat would speed up the process.
The thing to do, then, is to reflect as
much of the sun's heat as possible.
White or aluminum, which are actual-
ly interchangeable, do just that.
Where heat is needed to help flow
heavy products (such as crude, fuel
oil and road oilsi freely through the
pipelines, black is used as the ex-
terior covering to absorb the sun's
rays The black tanks are examples
of taking advantage of nature's help.
Ascertaining the level of the pro-
duct inside the tank sometimes puzz-
les non-refiners. There are three ways
the level is checked in Lago's tanks.
Most tanks have a float gauge fitted
to the side that indicates the level of
the product inside. The most accurate
is to gauge by hand This is done
through a hatch in the tank's top. A
steel tape with a weight on one end
is lowered into the tank to read the
exact depth. A modern method cur-
rently being introduced in Lago tanks
is remote electronic gauging. With
the installation of this system, it takes
nothing more than the push of a but-
ton for the electronic gauge to flash
the liquid level to the pump house.
Lago has over 500 tanks. The smal-
lest is a tiny twenty-five barrel tank.
Nevertheless, the tiny tanks along
side the medium and large tanks all
have their purpose in the orderly and
efficient operation of the refinery.
Mammoth or tiny, these are the tanks
that store the crude Lago needs to
operate continuously.
These are the tanks that give Lago
the fantastic storage capacity of over
twenty-one million barrels that keep
processing units busy night and day.

Best Weed Killer

Is Cycle Gas Oil

From PCAR Unit
Tanks may not "grow" in tank
farms but weeds certainly do. And in
Aruba they are not the ordinary va-
riety that can easily be controlled
with a little poison or hormone-type
weed killers.
Weeds in Aruba, according to a
recent Lago report, are extremely
hardy because of the months of se-
vere drought conditions they must
endure. In keeping the tank farm
"weed free" Lago found that many
weed killers, which work well in a
less arid climate, were unsuitable. A
non-selective type was needed since
weeds at Lago include both biennial
and annual grasses, broad-leafed
growths which fall in both cate-
gories, cacti, vines and the like.
During the last thirteen years,
Lago has tested many types of weed
killers soil poisons, chemical-type
poisons, hormone-type weed killers,
gas oil extract and PCAR cycle oil
and other petroleum oils. In the re-
port circulated to the parent com-
pany and affiliates, cycle oil from
PCAR was cited as the most readily
available and most effective weed
killer. Applied at the rate of 200 gal-
lons an acre, two or three times a
year, it effectively controls weed
growth under Aruba conditions. In
the study, gas oil extract from the
Edeleanu Plant was found to be
less effective.
Because of the rather high appli-
cation rate of cycle gas oil, findings
indicate it could best be used for
weed control in industrial areas close
to refineries where transportation
costs would be more favorable. It has
also been suggested for use along
railroad right-of-ways because of
ease of transporting it.

Maryland Getty

Takes On Record

Cargo May 25
When the Maryland Getty eased
out of San Nicolas Harbor May 25
she looked like any other large ocean
tanker. But within her steel hull was
the largest cargo by volume ever
taken on at Lago. The vessel, owned
by one Paul Getty who is rated as
one of the richest men in the world
(if not the richest), was carrying
300,233 barrels of clean product,
nearly 30,000 barrels more than the
former record holder. She had taken
the "title" away from the Hans Is-
brandstsen which had loaded 271,456
barrels of jet fuel in May, 1959. The
Maryland Getty's destination was
San Francisco.
In the weight category, however,
the record holder is still the World
Beauty. She took on nearly 41,000
tons of fuel oil in June of last year.
The Maryland Getty's cargo weighed
in at slightly over 35,000 tons.

The ham radio club actually was
formed three and one-half years ago.
Its primary purpose is to promote
interest in ham (amateur) radio in
the Netherlands Antilles. It is open
to all island residents who have a
sincere interest in ham radio. To
enable newcomers to satisfactorily
pass examinations for their govern-
ment radio operator licenses, the
club plans to hold another complete
radio school starting next August.
Through donations of equipment to
the new club house and through the
purchase of new equipment from va-
rious fund-raising projects, the club
plans to have a complete amateur
radio station -with its own call
at its new headquarters. This will
enable its members to have the use of
a complete ham station.
Those interested in joining the
Aruba Amateur Radio Club should
contact any of the club's officers.

Aruba To Join American

Nations in Census Taking
Following the recommendations of the United Nations Organization
that all nations of the Americas conduct a population count in 1960,
the Executive Council of Aruba, in consultation with the Central Gov-
ernment of the Netherlands Antilles, has directed that Aruba join the
United States and other American nations in this worthwhile endeavor
by conducting a census in June and
July of this year. This will make
