The contract to build Lago's multi-million dollar No. 3 Finger Pier

South America, subsidiary of Raymond International. The entire pro-

Editor's Note: At the annual meeting of the American Petroleum
Institute Division of Refining, M. J. Rathbone, president of Standard
Oil Company (N.J.), made the following remarks at the conclusion
of his address:
"We cannot afford to run a major segment of (the oil) industry as
though it were some sort of a proving ground for technical perfor-
mance and bookkeeping agility. We seem to be capable of making
everything conceivable at a refinery except money. Nevertheless, I'm
absolutely convinced that every refiner...... has both the equipment
and the raw materials needed to produce this strange and elusive
"I think profits can and must become a prime product instead of an
incidental or accidental by-product. What is essential is the deter-
mination to think and operate as business men. If we do think and act
in these terms we will have taken a long step toward restoring our
own self-confidence and will undoubtedly exert an important influence
on all other branches of our industry. In the long run, everyone will
to better off."


Nota di Redactor: Na e reunion annual di e Division di Refinacion di
American Petroleum Institute, M. J. Rathbone, president di Standard
Oil Company (N.J.) a haci e siguiente observacion na conclusion di su
"Nos no por permit nos di maneja un segment mayor di industrial
(petrolero) como si fuera e ta un sorto di terreno di prueba pa pres-
tacion tecnico y agilidad administrative. Nos ta parce capaz di haci tur
cos munstra concebible na un refineria, escepto placa. Y toch mi ta
absolutamente convenci cu cada refinador...... tin tanto e plantanan
como e material prima cu ta requeri pa produci e mercaderia stranjo
y elusive aki.
"Mi ta kere cu ganashi por y mester bira un product primario en
vez di un product secundario incidental of accidental. Loke ta esencial
ta e determination pa pensa y opera como hendenan di negoshi. Si nos
pensa y actua den e sentido aki anto nos lo a tuma un paso largo den
direction di re-establecimento di nos mes confianza propio y indudable- I
mente nos lo eherce un influencia important ariba tur otro ramona'
di industrial. A lo largo, tur hende lo sali mehor." I

Histories Related
After receiving congratulations
from Mr. Donovan for their contri-

riod nearly one-third of a century
long, the thirty-year employees heard
their service histories related by J.
R. Proterra, acting mechanical su-
perintendent, and G. L. MacNutt,
acting general superintendent.
Mr. Proterra said that both Mr.
Philip and Mr. Yarzagaray began
their Lago careers Aug. 7, 1930. Mr.

helper in the commissary. He trans-
ferred to the carpenter craft Sept.
13, 1933, as a tradesman fourth class.

ter B and in 1941 he was advanced
to carpenter A. The Grenada-born
employee has had no deductible ab-
sences during his career nor lost-
time accidents. He plans to retire

N eight Beat. Day workers head homeward; a small group of men wear-
ing the gray uniforms of the Lago Police Department move quietly
through the concession, some assigned to patrol outlying areas and
others destined to man guard posts. Minutes become an hour and one hour
becomes two. Then night hits with cat-like swiftness; the horizon literally
swallows the sun, quenching its light-giving fire. Naked lamps set the
stage for Night Beat as they stab the blanket of darkness that has covered
the near-sleeping refinery.
When night shift patrolmen go on duty the refinery population has
thinned perceptibly -- the staccato-like sounds of air hammers and roar
of open exhausts are replaced with the soft note of trade winds. The near-
silence of night is broken as the breeze picks up a scrap of paper and
sends it dancing across hard soil. Quiet especially prevails in outlying
concession areas that make up the patrolman's beat. In such a setting,
the rattle of a bicycle sprocket is magnified out of all proportion. As the
vehicle glides into a comforting circle of light its rider can easily be iden-

"Yard, busy by day, empty by night. The patrolman's job is basically a
two-fold one. First of all he is maintaining a security watch. Secondly, he
and his twenty-four fellow policemen are an integral part of Lago's fire
protection system.
Security is a must in a large industrial plant such as Lago. The conces-
sion is a multi-million dollar investment and a source of employment for
4500 persons. To allow unauthorized persons in refinery, lower yard and
tank farm areas could place both the individual and the company in
jeopardy. Should such a person, not acquainted with safe practices neces-
sary at Lago, be injured then the company would be liable. And of course
the patrolman is making his rounds to protect valuable property from

an ou o gates several Ltmis a Uy,
it is not implausible to estimate that
Lago policemen check eight to ten
thousand identification badges every
day. The badge must be checked
before a man can obtain his time
card and at the Main Gate alone,
2200 employees are so checked by
methodical patrolmen.
An equally important task of
patrolmen stationed at any one of
Lago's eight entry and exit gates is
checking vehicles. Chief Spitzer esti-
mates that there are more than
6000 vehicular movements every twen-
ty-four hours. When ships dock and
the crew gets shore leave, their spe-
cial passes must be cleared at the
Main Gate. It's a constant security
program of check, check, check! "We
insist on identification every time an
individual passes through one of our
refinery gates," said Chief Spitzer.
Add to the basic security and fire
watch assignments the myriad of po-
lice duties the department handles
every day and it is evident that the
gray uniform of the Lago police-
man is a familiar and welcome sight.
In addition to our man on bicycle
patrol, other patrolmen make their

World's Largest
Oil Tank To Store

605,000 Barrels
The world's largest crude oil stor-
age tank is being constructed in Ku-
wait. The giant steel structure will
be 260 feet in diameter and sixty-
four feet high. The floating roof
tank will have a capacity of 605,000
barrels of oil more than enough to
fill an 80,000 deadweight-ton ocean
tanker or to supply a 20,000-barrel-
a-day refinery for a month.

Eleven Tankers

Have Long Wait

For Lago Berths
Eleven large tankers were lined up
like taxi cabs waiting for a New
York City theater crowd, the lead
vessel lying just off the San Nicolas
Harbor reef and number eleven an-
chored at a point nearly three miles
up the coast. Shades of World War
II? Was this a convoy "making up"
so that protection in numbers might
thwart killer submarines? No, the
incident occurred less than a month
ago. During a twenty-eight-hour
period that started the morning of
Aug. 4, the previously mentioned
"convoy" of eleven tankers was
stacked up either with crude oil car-
goes to discharge or clean products
to pick up. There were already three
large tankers and two clean-product
vessels occupying berths. Five empty
berths could not be used because
they were either not suitable for the
larger vessels or not piped for clean
One of the eleven of the "left outs"
was the 47,000 deadweight-ton Esso
Aruba, fully loaded with crude from
Lake Maracaibo. After a wait of
nearly fourteen hours, the vessel fi-
nally obtained a berth.
The yet-to-be-built No. 3 Finger
Pier will be a decided help in clean-
ing up such situations as the "stack-
ed-up convoys" when they occur as
it will be able to handle any vessel,
approved for San Nicolas Harbor.

Though these job titles may seem
unusual, they are a far cry from
tongue twisters used at Lago in the
past. Long-service employees insist
that laundry employees carried such
titles as "left shirt sleeve presser,"
"button sewer-oner," "counter-clock-
wise pleat presser," "soap shaverer,"
and many, many others. We doubt
the authenticity of this but it sounds
good. However, all titles in the quiz
are bonafide.

The breasting island itself will clo-
sely resemble the deck of a modern
aircraft carrier at the building stage
before manifolds, pipe and loading
arm structures are installed. This
shape and the free-standing loading
arms were designed by Esso Research
and Engineering Company which, in
close liaison with Lago, made up the
pier specifications for bidders and
picked the successful contractor. Now
in use in other world ports, the free-
standing loading arms are just that.
Instead of using rubber hose for load-
ing and unloading, two twenty-seven-
foot-long steel pipes connect a shore
line to a ship line. Like a giant den-
tist's drill, the two-piece loading arm
is lowered by cable by an operator
in a high-up station until the arm
is secured. It is then self-supporting.
Unique steel joints make a perfect,
flexible connection
Thirty-Inch Line
Largest pipeline running out to the
breasting island over an exposed pipe
trestle will be a thirty-inch crude
line for unloading the big Creole
crude ships now in service. A con-
crete roadway will run out to the is-
land and terminate in a large turn-
around area.
The contractor will build the pier,
dismantle No. 4 Finger Pier and
dredge the north basin of the new
finger pier to a depth of forty feet.
Equipment the company is slated to
bring to Aruba includes a floating
pile driver, floating concrete plant
and dredge. Floating equipment will
be procured from other sources as
The doomed No. 4 Finger Pier was
Lago's first finger pier. It was built
in 1935. Prior to that Lago used a
T-dock and No. 1 Gasoline Dock,
both built in 1927 to handle harbor
