Hydrogen Unit 1 Is in Full Swing

With Aid of Lago, ERE, TOA Team

Lago's new Hydrogen Plant
No. 1 came fully on stream on
March 30. The startup team in-
cluded Lago, Esso Research &
Engineering Co. (ERE) and
Temporary Overseas Assignment
(TOA) personnel.
Sunday, March 28, the pen-
tane feed was put into the
H1AR unit and after 36 hours
the unit produced on-specifica-
tion hydrogen of 97+0/ purity.

imum 95+% hydrogen purity.
The record period from feed-
in to on-specification product
is believed to be the shortest
achieved for similar Esso units.
This is the first of the major
HDS units to go on stream.
When in full operation, the
two hydrogen units, both locat-
ed north of Powerhouse No. 1,
will take approximately 3500
barrels of feed a day from NFAR

Employees Return to Work March 24

After Nine Days of Work Stoppage

What began as a walkout of
a group of Process employees
of the Light Hydrocarbons Divi-
sion on Monday, March 15, re-
sulted in a 9-day work stoppage.
That same afternoon the In-
dependent Oil Workers' Union
of Aruba called a general mem-
bership meeting, in which those
present decided for a general

responsibilities for the FGS unit,
and was suspended.
According to the Union, this
change in work assignment was
not conveyed to them by Lago
management. On the other
hand, Lago management stated
that the change was discussed
with the Union in May 1970 and
again in September 1970 and
in January this year. Since there
was no reply from the Union
on this matter, Lago manage-
ment decided to implement the
change effective March 15.
To remove any doubt, Lago
management reaffirmed on sev-
eral occasions that the con-
templated change in job duties
would not cause any employee
to become surplus.
Through the efforts of man-
agement members and other
working employees, refinery
operations continued smoothly
and safely. HDS construction
and startup activities also con-
tinued normally.
To test the legality of the
strike, the company filed for an
injunction against the strike. The
judge ruled on March 19 that
IOWUA should call up, within a
very reasonable period of time,
all employees-members to re-
sume work.

Although the Union did call
up its members to go back to
work, it was not until Tuesday,
March 23, 1971, that a general
membership meeting of the
Union decided to end the work
stoppage. A majority of mem-
bers present ratified Lago's pro-
posal to the Union and decided
to resume work with 435 votes
for, 89 against, and 15 absten-
tions and/or invalid votes.
Lago's proposal was:
(1) The employee who was
suspended on March 15,
1971, can return to work
and his suspension will be
ended immediately. This
employee then can start a
grievance immediately to
reclaim pay lost during his
suspension. The other em-
ployees who abandoned
their jobs (strikers) will just
return to work without any
reprisals against any of
them. "No reprisals" does

As part of Lago's new jet fuel
facilities for handling jumbo
jets at Aruba's Beatrix Airport,
Esso Marketing recently ac-
quired two huge tank trucks.
The tank trucks, or refuelers,
are ten feet high with an over-
all length of 54 feet. Each has
a tank of 10,000-gallon capacity.
The two refuelers, each to
handle one wing, are equipped
with pumps and hoses capable

of supplying 1600 gallons of
fuel per minute.
More flexible in operation
than an underground hydrant
system, the tank trucks will be
used only on the airport.
The new facilities at the air-
port will also include: an 8,000-

fuel from Lago; a 42,000-gallon
