52 Cents Per Guilder Additional Thrift Contribution - 95.64°,

Cost-of-Living Payment - 4.1°/, Thrift Fund Earnings Announced
Contribucion Adicional Thrift 52 Cent,

Three announcements that will bring over two million guilders

in circulation in Aruba during December were made recently by

Lago Management.

Cost-of-Living Payment

On November 23, 1966 Lago and IOWUA signed an agreement
covering a cost-of-living bonus payment to all covered staff and
regular employees on the active payroll on Dec. 3, 1966. The pay-
ment will be the equivalent of 95.64% of the employee’s normal
monthly earnings, exclusive of shift differential and service-in-





grade increment, if any.

This lump sum payment covers any claim for compensation
with regard to cost of living for the period Dec. 3, 1966 through
Dec. 2, 1967.

Since the payment covers COL adjustment for a period beyond
the term of the present Collective Working Agreement, which
expires on June 30, 1967, the agreement covers the right of the
company ta recover from each employee the advance cost-of-
living payment made by the company in proportion to the total
period of absences through payroll deduction or otherwise,
should there be a collective absence from work on the part of the
employees

The C.O.L. bonus will be paid by check on Dec. 9, 1966.

52 Cents Per Guilder
Additional Thrift Contribution

Lago also announced that each participant of the Lago Thrift
Plan will be credited with 52 cents for every guilder he contri-
buted during the 13-month period ending Oct. 31, 1966. Emplo-
ees in the plan for a lesser period receive a porportionate share.
In addition, Fls. 25 will be credited to the account of each Thrift
Plan participant.



The 13-month base for 1966, instead of the usual twelve, re-
presents an additional 5.2% of a month’s pay which each par-
ticipant will receive who is making the maximum contribution
to the Plan (10%).

Any participant whose employment is terminated after Oct. 31,
1966, for any reason other than discharge or resignation, will
also be granted an additional contribution calculated on the above
basis.

NEW GUIDELINES ESTABLISHED FOR FUTURE
BASED ON OVER-ALL LAGO PERFORMANCE

In the past, Lago’s additional Thrift Plan contribution was
determined by the additional contribution made to Jersey em-
ployees in the U.S. and overseas. The amount of the contribution
depended on the total company performance worldwide.

However, a recent revision of Jersey’s Thrift Plan has elimin-
ated any additional contributions. Consequently, this yardstick
can no longer be used to determine additional contributions to
the Lago Thrift Plan.

Therefore, Lago Management has established guidelines
whereby the amount of additional Thrift contribution for the
future would be determined by our own total company perfor-
mance

SPECIAL CHRISTMAS WITHDRAWAL

The Lago Thrift Foundation has approved a special Christmas
withdrawal. Each employee has the option of withdrawing up to
two-thirds of his/her 1966 additional contribution.

Fund Earnings Distributed At 4.1°l,

/ The Lago Thrift Foundation also announced that fund earn-
ae will be distributed at the rate of 4.1 per cent of each em-
ployee’s average net credit balance during the year ending Sept
30, 1966. . : om

He transferred to IR-Safety
in August, 1947 as a safety in-
spector. He rose to Division
Head-Safety in October, 1961.
In 1963, Mr. O’Brien worked as
safety adviser and became Div-
ision Head-Plant Protection in
November, 1964. His title
changed to Division Superin-
tendent-Plant Protection in
January this year.

Mr. O’Brien left on a six to
nine-month loan assignment

-Million Dollars
Refining Projects

Two major modernization projects designed to provide greater
competitiveness in Lago’s Refining and Oil Movements oper-

ations will begin construction in

early 1967.

Both projects represent an investment in Aruba of several
million dollars by Standard Oil of New Jersey. Completion date

for both projects is estimated |
in early 1969.

During the construction per-
iod, a number of employment
opportunities will be available
through the contractors. Psrti-
cularly needed will be crafts-
men such as welders, painters,
pipefitters, masons, electricians
and instrument men. A few of-
fice positions will also be avail-
able.

Manpower needs will start
small in January, 1967 and peak
at a need of more than 300 per-
sons. Peak employment for Oil
Movements is about 200 and Re-
fining an additional 100 persons.

pany, the main contractor on
the Oil Movements project, has

Save Your Children From Fatal Climbs
Electric Wires in Trees Are Dangerous

Trees are planted around the house to embellish the scenery
and to provide shade for children to play under when they are)
small. As they grow older, they are tempted to climb up the
trees, to build houses or platforms in the trees.

As the trees grow higher and higher, their branches may|
stretch in-between or close to the electric wires overhead.

The wires will then be like sly enemies lurking in the tree. A
child climbing high enough may not be aware of the hot wires.
Curious as they are, children are then bound to touch the wires
and the consequences may be fatal. Children will not be able to
withstand the shock of a 125-volt line. Under certain conditions,
125 volts may prove fatal even to grown-ups. Moreover, some of
the wires carry 220 volts which will cause electrocution if con-|
tacted with bare hands.

Last year there was a case in Curacao where a boy got elec-
trocuted when he climbed up a tree and got in contact with an
electric wire that passed through the top of a tree near his home. |

Recently, a few cases have been detected and corrected in
Seroe Colorado where trees around the houses have grown en-
tangling electric wires. There may be other similar electric haz-
ards which are still undetected at other locations on the island.

It is important to correct these hazardous conditions. Where
possible, the tree should be either cut down or trimmed, or the
electric wires could be relocated.

As it may not always be possible to remove a tree or relocate
the wires, parents should caution their children not to climb up)
the trees where the wires are within their reach.

Lago’s Refining Modernization Project
Aimed at Greater Operating Efficiency —

A major refining modernization project, scheduled to begin}
construction in early 1967, is expected to contribute to greater
operating efficiency through improved communications and con-

trol methods.

The expected benefits include
products, a closer approach to
optimum operating conditions,
and an improvement in unit
down time through more effec-
tive maintenance scheduling.

The project, scheduled for
completion in early 1968, re-
groups a number of control
houses into a single, two-story,
airconditioned control center
and provides the operator with
computer assistance and means
for greater employee safety.

Inclusion of a computer in
the control house is not novel
in the competitive refining and
petrochemical industry today.
In a recent article in the Petro
Chem Engineer Magazine it was
stated that "in the petroleum
and chemical industries there
are about 130 computer control
systems in the U.S. and about
half as many more in the rest
of the world.”

In operation, the Computer
doesn’t do anything that is pre-
sently done by the operator. Its
purpose is to scan the instru-
ments continuously and veport
to the operator those instru-
ments which are outside normal
operating limits or represent an
alarm situation. All decisions
about this information along

improved yields of more valuable
|from visits to Humble’s Refin-
lery located in Billings, Mon-
tana. J. R. Carroll, C. O. Per-
|sons, R. F. Morgan, T. R. Bur-
jton and G. L. MacNutt were
among the visitors to Billings
during the development of the
projec.

Beceuse of the tremendous
speed at which a computer can
}scan instruments, it will share}
its time for such tasks as log-|
|ging data and making high-|
|speed calculations about such
|things as furnace efficiency or
joptimum catalyst circulation
rates. A number of computer
| programs are presently in pre-|
|paration to make it possible for
the data processing equipment
|to make its calculations and
pass the information on to the
| operator who decides what to do
|with it. This almost instant in-|
formation will print better ccn-|
trol, improved product yields}
}and total optimization of ves-
ources

It will also be capable of
mathematically integrating the
feed and product flows which
result in improved yields ac-
counting. |

Included in the refining pro-|
ject is the use of a new radio}

Working together, these sub-|

and other control
systems strive toward the goal
of loading and unloading ships
with a minimum delay and ma-
ximum efficiency. Arthur G.
McKee is the principal contrac-
tor on this and other portions
of the project.

One part of the Oil Move-
ments project calls for the con-
struction of six giant tanks
with the largest capacities hold-
ing up to 630,000 barreis. La-
go’s largest tank at present
holds 220,000 barrels. One of the
new tanks will be for crude and

five will hold refined products. |

The six new tanks will replace
42 old tanks which are already
being dismantled.

To make maximum use of the
increased tankage, a number of

indicated that our future plans
in the area of oil movements
were limited and needed greater
range and flexibility.

Jack Kelleway, Carle Wil-|

In order to get a background on
what was available and what
approaches others had taken to
similar problems, Kelleway and

The idea to use a computer
was another area where many
extra benefits were realized. It
would have been humanly im-
possible to compile and inter-|
pret all the information being
put out by the sub-systems with-
out a computer. However, the
machine works so fast that it

Save Your Children From Fatal Climbs
Electric Wires in Trees Are Dangerous
Trees are planted around the house to embellish the scenery
and to provide shade for children to play under when they are
small. As they grow older, they are tempted to climb up the
trees, to build houses or platforms in the trees.
As the trees grow higher and higher, their branches may
stretch in-between or close to the electric wires overhead.
The wires will then be like sly enemies lurking in the tree A
child climbing high enough may not be aware of the hot wires.
Curious as they are, children are then bound to touch the wires
and the consequences may be fatal. Children will not be able to
withstand the shock of a 125-volt line. Under certain conditions,
125 volts may prove fatal even to grown-ups. Moreover, some of

cluded is the building of six
huge tanks with capacities be-
tween 400,000 to 600,000 bar-

The new Oil Movements sys-
tems will increase the amount
of information going into a cen-
tralized control center. With
computer assistance, the person-
nel in the control center will be
able to sort the information and
make better decisions with a
minimum of delay.
Lago has made arrangements
so that each of the contractors
will train Lago employees to
operate the new equipment as
necessary.

52 Cents Per Guilder Additional Thrift Contribution - 95.64°,

Cost-of-Living Payment - 4.1°/, Thrift Fund Earnings Announced
Contribucion Adicional Thrift 52 Cent,

Three announcements that will bring over two million guilders

in circulation in Aruba during December were made recently by

Lago Management.

Cost-of-Living Payment

On November 23, 1966 Lago and IOWUA signed an agreement
covering a cost-of-living bonus payment to all covered staff and
regular employees on the active payroll on Dec. 3, 1966. The pay-
ment will be the equivalent of 95.64% of the employee’s normal
monthly earnings, exclusive of shift differential and service-in-





grade increment, if any.

This lump sum payment covers any claim for compensation
with regard to cost of living for the period Dec. 3, 1966 through
Dec. 2, 1967.

Since the payment covers COL adjustment for a period beyond
the term of the present Collective Working Agreement, which
expires on June 30, 1967, the agreement covers the right of the
company ta recover from each employee the advance cost-of-
living payment made by the company in proportion to the total
period of absences through payroll deduction or otherwise,
should there be a collective absence from work on the part of the
employees

The C.O.L. bonus will be paid by check on Dec. 9, 1966.

52 Cents Per Guilder
Additional Thrift Contribution

Lago also announced that each participant of the Lago Thrift
Plan will be credited with 52 cents for every guilder he contri-
buted during the 13-month period ending Oct. 31, 1966. Emplo-
ees in the plan for a lesser period receive a porportionate share.
In addition, Fls. 25 will be credited to the account of each Thrift
Plan participant.



The 13-month base for 1966, instead of the usual twelve, re-
presents an additional 5.2% of a month’s pay which each par-
ticipant will receive who is making the maximum contribution
to the Plan (10%).

Any participant whose employment is terminated after Oct. 31,
1966, for any reason other than discharge or resignation, will
also be granted an additional contribution calculated on the above
basis.

NEW GUIDELINES ESTABLISHED FOR FUTURE
BASED ON OVER-ALL LAGO PERFORMANCE

In the past, Lago’s additional Thrift Plan contribution was
determined by the additional contribution made to Jersey em-
ployees in the U.S. and overseas. The amount of the contribution
depended on the total company performance worldwide.

However, a recent revision of Jersey’s Thrift Plan has elimin-
ated any additional contributions. Consequently, this yardstick
can no longer be used to determine additional contributions to
the Lago Thrift Plan.

Therefore, Lago Management has established guidelines
whereby the amount of additional Thrift contribution for the
future would be determined by our own total company perfor-
mance

SPECIAL CHRISTMAS WITHDRAWAL

The Lago Thrift Foundation has approved a special Christmas
withdrawal. Each employee has the option of withdrawing up to
two-thirds of his/her 1966 additional contribution.

Fund Earnings Distributed At 4.1°l,

/ The Lago Thrift Foundation also announced that fund earn-
ae will be distributed at the rate of 4.1 per cent of each em-
ployee’s average net credit balance during the year ending Sept
30, 1966. . : om

He transferred to IR-Safety
in August, 1947 as a safety in-
spector. He rose to Division
Head-Safety in October, 1961.
In 1963, Mr. O’Brien worked as
safety adviser and became Div-
ision Head-Plant Protection in
November, 1964. His title
changed to Division Superin-
tendent-Plant Protection in
January this year.

Mr. O’Brien left on a six to
nine-month loan assignment
with Esso Pappas in Thessalo-

As safety advisor, he is charg-
ed with setting up a company
safety program.

Mr. Kock started as an Ap-
prentice B in Mechanical-Elec-

worked all his 30 years in Elec-
trical, where he advanced to
Senior Apprentice A in May,
1939. Mr. Kock was promoted
to Electrician B in December,
1955, which is his present po-

-Million Dollars
Refining Projects

Two major modernization projects designed to provide greater
competitiveness in Lago’s Refining and Oil Movements oper-

ations will begin construction in

early 1967.

Both projects represent an investment in Aruba of several
million dollars by Standard Oil of New Jersey. Completion date

for both projects is estimated |
in early 1969.

During the construction per-
iod, a number of employment
opportunities will be available
through the contractors. Psrti-
cularly needed will be crafts-
men such as welders, painters,
pipefitters, masons, electricians
and instrument men. A few of-
fice positions will also be avail-
able.

Manpower needs will start
small in January, 1967 and peak
at a need of more than 300 per-
sons. Peak employment for Oil
Movements is about 200 and Re-
fining an additional 100 persons.

Save Your Children From Fatal Climbs
Electric Wires in Trees Are Dangerous

Trees are planted around the house to embellish the scenery
and to provide shade for children to play under when they are)
small. As they grow older, they are tempted to climb up the
trees, to build houses or platforms in the trees.

As the trees grow higher and higher, their branches may|
stretch in-between or close to the electric wires overhead.

The wires will then be like sly enemies lurking in the tree. A
child climbing high enough may not be aware of the hot wires.
Curious as they are, children are then bound to touch the wires
and the consequences may be fatal. Children will not be able to
withstand the shock of a 125-volt line. Under certain conditions,
125 volts may prove fatal even to grown-ups. Moreover, some of
the wires carry 220 volts which will cause electrocution if con-|
tacted with bare hands.

Last year there was a case in Curacao where a boy got elec-
trocuted when he climbed up a tree and got in contact with an
electric wire that passed through the top of a tree near his home. |

Recently, a few cases have been detected and corrected in
Seroe Colorado where trees around the houses have grown en-
tangling electric wires. There may be other similar electric haz-
ards which are still undetected at other locations on the island.

It is important to correct these hazardous conditions. Where
possible, the tree should be either cut down or trimmed, or the
electric wires could be relocated.

As it may not always be possible to remove a tree or relocate
the wires, parents should caution their children not to climb up)
the trees where the wires are within their reach.

Lago’s Refining Modernization Project
Aimed at Greater Operating Efficiency —

A major refining modernization project, scheduled to begin}
construction in early 1967, is expected to contribute to greater
operating efficiency through improved communications and con-

trol methods.

The expected benefits include
products, a closer approach to
optimum operating conditions,
and an improvement in unit
down time through more effec-
tive maintenance scheduling.

The project, scheduled for
completion in early 1968, re-
groups a number of control
houses into a single, two-story,
airconditioned control center
and provides the operator with
computer assistance and means
for greater employee safety.

Inclusion of a computer in
the control house is not novel
in the competitive refining and
petrochemical industry today.
In a recent article in the Petro
Chem Engineer Magazine it was
stated that "in the petroleum
and chemical industries there
are about 130 computer control
systems in the U.S. and about
half as many more in the rest
of the world.”

In operation, the Computer
doesn’t do anything that is pre-
sently done by the operator. Its
purpose is to scan the instru-
ments continuously and veport
to the operator those instru-
ments which are outside normal
operating limits or represent an
alarm situation. All decisions
about this information along

improved yields of more valuable
|from visits to Humble’s Refin-
lery located in Billings, Mon-
tana. J. R. Carroll, C. O. Per-
|sons, R. F. Morgan, T. R. Bur-
jton and G. L. MacNutt were
among the visitors to Billings
during the development of the
projec.

Beceuse of the tremendous
speed at which a computer can
}scan instruments, it will share}
its time for such tasks as log-|
|ging data and making high-|
|speed calculations about such
|things as furnace efficiency or
joptimum catalyst circulation
rates. A number of computer
| programs are presently in pre-|
|paration to make it possible for
the data processing equipment
|to make its calculations and
pass the information on to the
| operator who decides what to do
|with it. This almost instant in-|
formation will print better ccn-|
trol, improved product yields}
}and total optimization of ves-
ources

It will also be capable of
mathematically integrating the
feed and product flows which
result in improved yields ac-
counting. |

Included in the refining pro-|
ject is the use of a new radio}

Working together, these sub-|

and other control
systems strive toward the goal
of loading and unloading ships
with a minimum delay and ma-
ximum efficiency. Arthur G.
McKee is the principal contrac-
tor on this and other portions
of the project.

One part of the Oil Move-
ments project calls for the con-
struction of six giant tanks
with the largest capacities hold-
ing up to 630,000 barreis. La-
go’s largest tank at present
holds 220,000 barrels. One of the
new tanks will be for crude and

five will hold refined products. |

The six new tanks will replace
42 old tanks which are already
being dismantled.

To make maximum use of the
increased tankage, a number of

indicated that our future plans
in the area of oil movements
were limited and needed greater
range and flexibility.

Jack Kelleway, Carle Wil-|

In order to get a background on
what was available and what
approaches others had taken to
similar problems, Kelleway and

The idea to use a computer
was another area where many
extra benefits were realized. It
would have been humanly im-
possible to compile and inter-|
