M&C Men Turn Around Six Units
Of Light Hydrocarbons in 2 Months

On April 21 some 175 trades-
men of Mechanical-M&C suc-
cessfully concluded an extensive
turnaround of the six units of
the Light Hydrocarbons Division.
With the assistance of the LHC
and Mechanical Engineering Di-
visions personnel, the M&C tra-
desmen and supervisors com-
pleted the job essentially on
schedule in about two months.
This was the first time since
1961 that the M&C forces under-
took such a big assignment.
Two major factors which con-
tributed to attain the goals es-
tablished were the _ flexibility
demonstrated by M&C trades-
men and the effective execution
of the daily work plans by su-
pervisors. Lago President Roy
L. Trusty commended and con-
gratulated all the tradesmen
and supervisors concerned for
the safe and efficient manner
in which they executed their in-
dividual tasks.

While working around the
clock in three shifts, the Metal
Tradesmen, Equipment Trades-
men, Building & Equipment Tra-
desmen, and Cleanoutmen
swarmed the LEAR 1 & 2, AAR
1 & 2, ISAR and PCAR units and

were engaged in reconditioning
towers and heat exchangers,
renewing piping, repairing
pumps, electrical and instrument
equipment.

The turnaround of the Cat
Cracker included work from the
first to the 18th floor. Heavy
equipment used for various jobs
included several types of cranes,
Ross carriers, forklifts and Pet-
tibone cranes. One of the unu-
sual tasks the E.I.S. personnel
had to tackle was inspecting
several smokestacks while sus-
pended in a safety cage from a
200-ft. crane boom.

ZERO IN
ON SAFETY

The most important achieve-
ment during the turnaround was
the injury-free performance by
all of M&C personnel during the
70,000-manhour_ assignment.

Scrap Metal Sales to Employees Resumed

For the past months, scrap sales to employees have been dis-
continued at the Salvage Yard. The reason for this is that the
former salvage storage space is needed for HDS-ll tank con-
struction, and we will not have any space for future stock piling
of scrap.

From the time that sales at the Salvage Yard were discon-
tinued, we have received many requests to provide an oppor-
tunity for our employees and annuitants to continue to purchase
scrap.

Since we do not have the facilities to handle future scrap
sales ourselves, we have arranged for our employees and an-
nuitants to purchase from a contractor, the Aruba Metals Com-
pany, at their Balashi Scrap Yard, for the same price that was
paid for scrap formerly sold at the Lago Salvage Yard.

The conditions under this new arrangement are as follows:

1. Sales will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of
each month. The first sale will be on Saturday, May 13, 1972.
Sales time will be between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00
a.m. on the two days mentioned above — employees and
annuitants will not be permitted to buy at any other time.
All purchases will be on a cash basis.

Each employee and annuitant will be limited to 1500 kgs. of
ferrous scrap at each purchase.

The sales price for ferrous scrap metal will be Fis. 50.— per
1000 kgs. (the same price as at Lago Salvage Yard).
Non-ferrous and other alloy metals scrap, if and when avall-
able, may also be purchased in small quantities at the pre-
vailing prices at time of purchase.

Sales on the above basis, will be to Lago employees and
annuitants only. Employees and annuitants will be expected
to identify themselves by showing their badges.










Lago Policemen: Their Work Encompasses More Than Watch and Control

The duties of the Lago Police-
men are not only to "maintain
law and order” similar to one
of the main responsibilities of
the government police. Neither
are their duties, as some may
regard them, to watch and con-
trol. In fact, their responsibilities
cover a wide range of tasks that
have to be performed in a com-
plex refinery such as Lago. They
sometimes have a difficult job to
do, and not always a pleasant
one.

Their main duties, in short,
can be defined as: to exercise
control on persons and traffic
entering and leaving the refin-
ery area, and to protect life and
property within the refinery.

The Police shift group has the
surveillance during their shift of
660 hectares of land, including
one of world’s largest refineries.
Some of their specific duties,
which they have to discharge
around the clock, rain or shine,
are: control at several gates, in-
cluding assisting seamen; is-
suance of badges and car pas-
ses; traffic control; traffic acci-
dent and special investigations;
refinery security patrol; payroll
escort; driving ambulances and
administration of First Aid; fire-
fighting duties for Seroe Colora-
do area (they are capable of
driving and operating all mobile
fire equipment). They also
handle distribution of company
publications at the gates, re-
quests for overtime transpor-
tation and lunches, for water
and ice deliveries; control on
parking stalls, and radio com-
munication for Mechanical radio
frequencies on the 4-12 and 12-8
shifts and on weekends and for
frequencies of the Lago Police,
Fire and Safety Sections.

During each shift, the Corpo-
rals have to make several
rounds of the refinery, which ex-
tends up to the Seaberth. They
should then be on the lookout
especially for fire, traffic and
safety hazards, leaking pipes,
tank overflows, and fence secu-
rity. They also take care of bar-
ricading roads where necessary.

On each of the three shifts,
there are some seven men on
duty, including one Lieutenant,
one Sergeant, one Radio Oper-
ator and three to four Corporals.

The Lago Police Sergeants
and Lieutenants also have the
authority of Extraordinary Police-





ARUBA ESSO NEWS



man and, as such, they have the
same authority as the Govern-
ment Police.

Other non-shift personnel in-
clude one sergeant in charge of
Lago's lock and key system, one
office clerk, and the police
chief.

Each Lago Policeman must
have followed a basic training
Program which includes Fire-
fighting, First-Aid, Traffic Law,
Police Ordinances, Pass and

P. E Plan di Restablecemento

ainda ta na vigor? E ta in-
clui tambe Estados Unidos?

. A ser combini entre Compa-
nia y Independent Oil Work-
ers Union of Aruba cu den
caso ta requeri pa haci ahus-
tamento pa motibo di condi-
cionnan di operacion, Com-
pania ta bai di acuerdo pa
extende e Poliza di Resta-

tus 2, 1965, pa e duracion di
Combenio Colectivo di Tra-
bao. Esaki ta documenta den
e actual Combenio Colectivo
di Trabao den Articulo XXI-
Seccion 4 - Restablecemento.

. Cuanto anja mas Lago ta
pensa di keda refina azeta
na Aruba. Of a lo menos,
cuanto anja mas e tin pensa
di sigui traha ariba Aruba?

. No ta posible na e momento
aki pa bisa cuanto anja mas
Lago lo sigui refina azeta na
Aruba. Pero considerando e
situacion mundial tocante
mercado y demanda pa pro-
ductos di azeta, nos ta di
opinion cu Lago su futuro
tin un base sdlido.

P. Pakiko Lago no ta traha un

club pa empleadonan na
Oranjestad?

. Lago ya a bai di acuerdo pa
contribui te Fls. 50,000 pa e
construccion di un Centro di
Recreo pa Empleado door di
1.0.W.U.A., cual edificio ac-
tualmente ta bao construc-
cion.

P. Cuminzando 1972 Lago lo tin

trabao pa graduados di MU-
LO-A? Pakiko Lago no ta
duna curso pa graduados di
MULO-A, por ehempel, boek-
houden, pa asina despues
nan por haya un trabao na
Lago? Pakiko ta solamente
tin oportunidad pa graduados
di MULO-B of estudiantes
tecnico?

. Lago su operacionnan ta di
naturaleza tecnico y como
tal tin mester di capacidad-
nan cu ta ser sinja den
schoolnan tecnico of cienti-
fico. Pa tal motibo, mayoria
di hende cu nos a emplea
recientemente ta graduados
di schoolnan tecnico di Aru-
ba y nan mester a sigi nos
Programa Preparatorio di
Pre-Empleo. De vez en cuan-
do, nos ta emplea un emple-
ado clerical cu tin diploma
MULO, pero nos necesidad

pa hende di e tipo di trabao
aki ta asina minimal cu nos
no por hustifica un programa
di training special.

. Mi kier sabi pakiko Lago no

ta laga e watchmen controla
e autonan cu ta parkeer den
e sitio di parkeer na Porta
Mayor. Hopi di e autonan no
ta parkeer bon y hopi bez ta
dificil pa un hende saka su
auto di e lugar ey.

. Poliz di Lago ta haci tur lo

posible pa controla parkeer-
mento na Porta No. 2. Si e
cantidad di trabao ta permiti,
un poliz ta ser staciona den
e sitio di parkeer.

Pakiko Lago no por pone po-
co mas atencion na e hopi
pacientnan cu ta sinti lomba
pa dokter por yama mas tan-
to di nan posible pa mira e
specialista di lomba durante
su bishita anual na e isla, of
ta na Lago?

. Aparentemente e pregunta ta

referi na e cirujano neurolo-
go kende ta bishita Aruba
periodicamente. Gustosamen-
te Depto. Medico di Lago ta
referi pa e specialista aki
cualkier caso cu por ser yu-
da pa su opinion of trato.
Sinembargo, mester ser en-
tendi cu hopi casos di lom-
ba no ta di tipo neuro-cirur-
gico y nan lo no por bene-
ficia di un tal consultacion.

. Ta berdad cu tin un rumor

pafor cu Lago tin plan pa ha-
ci assistants y operators CR?
Esey ta berdad, si of no.

. Aunque e pregunta ta puntra

cu si tin un rumor, nos ta
asumi cu e pregunta su in-
tencion ta pa puntra si tin
algo berdad den e rumor.
Algun refineria tin "chief
operators” kende ta miem-
bros di gerencia, pero nin-
gun di nan cu nos conoce
tin tur assistants y operators
como CR. Lago no tin plan
pa haci tur assistants y ope-
rators CR.

Q. Is the resettlement plan still

in effect? Does it also in-
clude the United States?

. It has been agreed between

the Company and the Inde-
pendent Oil Workers Union
of Aruba that in the event it
is required to make adjust-
ments because of operating
conditions, the Company
agrees to extend the Reset-
tlement Policy dated August
2, 1965, for the duration of
the Collective Working Agree-
ment. The above is docu-
mented in the present Col-
lective Working Agreement,
Article XXI - Section 4 - Re-
settlement.

. How many years more does

Lago plan to continue refin-
ing oil on Aruba? Or at least,
how many more years does
Lago plan to continue work-
ing in Aruba?

. It is not possible at this time

to say how many more years
Lago will continue to refine
oil in Aruba. But considering
the world situation concern-
ing the market and demand
for oil products, we are of
the opinion that Lago’s fu-
ture has a solid base.

. Why doesn’t Lago build a

club for employees in Oran-
jestad?

. Lago has already agreed to

contribute up to Fis. 50,000
to the construction of an
Employee Recreation Center
by 1.0.W.U.A., which build-
ing is at present under con-
struction.

. Starting 1972, will Lago have

jobs for Mulo-A graduates?
Why doesn’t Lago give cour-
ses for MULO-A graduates,
bookkeeping, and later on
they can get a job at Lago?
Why only opportunities for
MULO-B graduates or Tech-
nical students?

A. Lago’s operations are techni-

cal in nature, and as such
require the type of skills that
are taught in schools with a

er 2 DIG SS002 =:

Management Answers Your Questions

technical or scientific orien-
tation.

For this reason, most of the
people we have hired recent-
ly are graduates of the is-
land’s technical schools, and
these people have been ex-
posed to our Pre-Employ-
ment Preparatory Program.
Occasionally, we do hire a
clerical employee with a
Mulo background, but our
need for people of this type
is so minimal that we can-
not justify a special training
program.

Q. Why can’t Lago pay a little

more attention to the many
“back” patients working for
her and see to It that the
doctors call up as many of
said patients as possible to
see the back” specialist
upon his yearly visit to the
Island, or Is It to Lago?

A. Apparently the questioner is

referring to a neurosurgeon
who periodically visits Aru-
ba. The Lago Medical De-
partment gladly refers to this
specialist any case that may
be helped by his opinion or
treatment. However, it should
be understood that many
“back” cases are not of a
neurosurgical type, and would
not be benefited by such a
consultation.

Q. Is it true that there Is a ru-

mor outside that Lago Is
planning to make assistants
and operators CR? Is that
true, yes or no?

A. Although the question asks

if there is a rumor we as-
sume that the question is in-
tended to be whether there
is any truth in the rumor.
Some refineries have chief
operators who are manage-
ment people but none that
we know of have all assis-
tants and operators CR. La-
go does not plan to make
all assistants and operators
CR.

Airconditioned cars in a warm
climate as ours are quite com-
mon but Lago now has the only
airconditioned payloader on the
island. Popularly called "chuba-
to” in Papiamento, which means
"billy goat’ in English, the pay-
loader is the first airconditioned
“animal” in the company’s mo-
bile equipment "'zoo.”” Other
species are the "giraffe" and

one resembling a "’camel” (Ross
Carrier).

Pier. The aircooling unit was re-
cently installed in the pay-

sulfur dust. Looking almost like
a spaceman, he not only felt un-

loader's cabin to eliminate a se-
ries of inconveniences for the
operator in carrying out the job
efficiently and safely. Measuring
4 ft. square and 5 ft. high, the
cabin is probably the smallest
airconditioned work space on
the island.

Previously, the operator had
to swaddle himself in a lot of
protective clothing, wear safety
goggles and other bulky equip-
ment to protect himself from the

comfortable from the heat, but
had to stop the loading oper-
ation frequently to "cool off”
and shake off the yellow dust
from his clothes and clean his
goggles in order to be able to
see better.

With these problems eliminat-
ed by the aircooled cabin, the
operator now rides his "chuba-
to” in style and in cool comfort
in his easily controllable private
little cubicle.

The latest addition to Lago's
Industrial Services Fire Section
is a 1000-gallon-per-minute Air
Foam Pumper which is equipped
with a 54-ft. articulated "Aer-
O-Squrt" boom. Installed on a
turntable and hydraulically ope-
rated, the boom can rotate a
full circle and can rapidly and
efficiently provide a master
stream of foam or water to fight
fires that are hard to get at,
over and in elevated pipe banks,
floating roof tanks and other
high locations where hydrocar-
bon leaks might require appli-
cation of water fog to prevent
fire. With a vantage height of
54 ft. and an operating pressure
of 200 p.s.i.g., the nozzle can be
controlled electrically from the
rear panel to provide the re-
quired fog or straight stream
patterns.

The riew pumper truck, the
first of Lago’s fire trucks with
the articulated boom, has a ca-
pacity of 750 gallons of foam
with proportioning capabilities
to generate 3, 4 and 6%/o foam.



New feature is articulated boom, shown here in action.

Auxiliary water connections at
the rear will permit using the
boom to provide cooling water
at the same time foam can be
generated and discharged
through the normal 2-14-inch
discharge outlets.

The boom (called Squrt by its
manufacturer, the Snorkel Fire
Equipment Company) can be
fitted either with a foam or wa-
ter nozzle.

The truck body and motor,
supplied by International Har-
vester, the fire equipment from
National Foam Company, and
the Squrt jointly cost approxi-
mately Fis. 100,000. This mo-
dern fire truck replaces an ol-
der-type pumper and _ again
brings the total mobile fire
equipment at Lago to nine.

"With this new fire truck, La-
go's firefighters now have a unit
capable of placing water or
foam where it is needed most,
where it will do the most good,
reach locations that are inac-
cessible to other mobile units,”
says Fire Chief Peter Storey.

M&C Men Turn Around Six Units
Of Light Hydrocarbons in 2 Months

On April 21 some 175 trades-
men of Mechanical-M&C suc-
cessfully concluded an extensive
turnaround of the six units of
the Light Hydrocarbons Division.
With the assistance of the LHC
and Mechanical Engineering Di-
visions personnel, the M&C tra-
desmen and supervisors com-
pleted the job essentially on
schedule in about two months.
This was the first time since
1961 that the M&C forces under-
took such a big assignment.
Two major factors which con-
tributed to attain the goals es-
tablished were the _ flexibility
demonstrated by M&C trades-
men and the effective execution
of the daily work plans by su-
pervisors. Lago President Roy
L. Trusty commended and con-
gratulated all the tradesmen
and supervisors concerned for
the safe and efficient manner
in which they executed their in-
dividual tasks.

While working around the
clock in three shifts, the Metal
Tradesmen, Equipment Trades-
men, Building & Equipment Tra-
desmen, and Cleanoutmen
swarmed the LEAR 1 & 2, AAR
1 & 2, ISAR and PCAR units and

were engaged in reconditioning
towers and heat exchangers,
renewing piping, repairing
pumps, electrical and instrument
equipment.

The turnaround of the Cat
Cracker included work from the
first to the 18th floor. Heavy
equipment used for various jobs
included several types of cranes,
Ross carriers, forklifts and Pet-
tibone cranes. One of the unu-
sual tasks the E.I.S. personnel
had to tackle was inspecting
several smokestacks while sus-
pended in a safety cage from a
200-ft. crane boom.

ZERO IN
ON SAFETY

The most important achieve-
ment during the turnaround was
the injury-free performance by
all of M&C personnel during the
70,000-manhour_ assignment.

Scrap Metal Sales to Employees Resumed

For the past months, scrap sales to employees have been dis-
continued at the Salvage Yard. The reason for this is that the
former salvage storage space is needed for HDS-ll tank con-
struction, and we will not have any space for future stock piling
of scrap.

From the time that sales at the Salvage Yard were discon-
tinued, we have received many requests to provide an oppor-
tunity for our employees and annuitants to continue to purchase
scrap.

Since we do not have the facilities to handle future scrap
sales ourselves, we have arranged for our employees and an-
nuitants to purchase from a contractor, the Aruba Metals Com-
pany, at their Balashi Scrap Yard, for the same price that was
paid for scrap formerly sold at the Lago Salvage Yard.

The conditions under this new arrangement are as follows:

1. Sales will be held on the second and fourth Saturday of
each month. The first sale will be on Saturday, May 13, 1972.
Sales time will be between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 11:00
a.m. on the two days mentioned above — employees and
annuitants will not be permitted to buy at any other time.
All purchases will be on a cash basis.

Each employee and annuitant will be limited to 1500 kgs. of
ferrous scrap at each purchase.

The sales price for ferrous scrap metal will be Fis. 50.— per
1000 kgs. (the same price as at Lago Salvage Yard).
Non-ferrous and other alloy metals scrap, if and when avall-
able, may also be purchased in small quantities at the pre-
vailing prices at time of purchase.

Sales on the above basis, will be to Lago employees and
annuitants only. Employees and annuitants will be expected
to identify themselves by showing their badges.







Lago Policemen: Their Work Encompasses More Than Watch and Control

The duties of the Lago Police-
men are not only to "maintain
law and order” similar to one
of the main responsibilities of
the government police. Neither
are their duties, as some may
regard them, to watch and con-
trol. In fact, their responsibilities
cover a wide range of tasks that
have to be performed in a com-
plex refinery such as Lago. They
sometimes have a difficult job to
do, and not always a pleasant
one.

Their main duties, in short,
can be defined as: to exercise
control on persons and traffic
entering and leaving the refin-
ery area, and to protect life and
property within the refinery.

The Police shift group has the
surveillance during their shift of
660 hectares of land, including
one of world’s largest refineries.
Some of their specific duties,
which they have to discharge
around the clock, rain or shine,
are: control at several gates, in-
cluding assisting seamen; is-
suance of badges and car pas-
ses; traffic control; traffic acci-
dent and special investigations;
refinery security patrol; payroll
escort; driving ambulances and
administration of First Aid; fire-
fighting duties for Seroe Colora-
do area (they are capable of
driving and operating all mobile
fire equipment). They also
handle distribution of company
publications at the gates, re-
quests for overtime transpor-
tation and lunches, for water
and ice deliveries; control on
parking stalls, and radio com-
munication for Mechanical radio
frequencies on the 4-12 and 12-8
shifts and on weekends and for
frequencies of the Lago Police,
Fire and Safety Sections.

During each shift, the Corpo-
rals have to make several
rounds of the refinery, which ex-
tends up to the Seaberth. They
should then be on the lookout
especially for fire, traffic and
safety hazards, leaking pipes,
tank overflows, and fence secu-
rity. They also take care of bar-
ricading roads where necessary.

On each of the three shifts,
there are some seven men on
duty, including one Lieutenant,
one Sergeant, one Radio Oper-
ator and three to four Corporals.

The Lago Police Sergeants
and Lieutenants also have the
authority of Extraordinary Police-





ARUBA ESSO NEWS



man and, as such, they have the
same authority as the Govern-
ment Police.

Other non-shift personnel in-
clude one sergeant in charge of
Lago's lock and key system, one
office clerk, and the police
chief.

Each Lago Policeman must
have followed a basic training
Program which includes Fire-
fighting, First-Aid, Traffic Law,

Gerencia Ta Contesta Bo Pregunta na Telefoon 3500

P. E Plan di Restablecemento

ainda ta na vigor? E ta in-
clui tambe Estados Unidos?

. A ser combini entre Compa-
nia y Independent Oil Work-
ers Union of Aruba cu den
caso ta requeri pa haci ahus-
tamento pa motibo di condi-
cionnan di operacion, Com-
pania ta bai di acuerdo pa
extende e Poliza di Resta-
blecemento di fecha Augus-
tus 2, 1965, pa e duracion di
Combenio Colectivo di Tra-
bao. Esaki ta documenta den
e actual Combenio Colectivo
di Trabao den Articulo XXI-
Seccion 4 - Restablecemento.

. Cuanto anja mas Lago ta
pensa di keda refina azeta
na Aruba. Of a lo menos,
cuanto anja mas e tin pensa
di sigui traha ariba Aruba?

. No ta posible na e momento
aki pa bisa cuanto anja mas
Lago lo sigui refina azeta na
Aruba. Pero considerando e
situacion mundial tocante
mercado y demanda pa pro-
ductos di azeta, nos ta di
opinion cu Lago su futuro
tin un base sdlido.

P. Pakiko Lago no ta traha un

club pa empleadonan na
Oranjestad?

. Lago ya a bai di acuerdo pa
contribui te Fls. 50,000 pa e
construccion di un Centro di
Recreo pa Empleado door di
1.0.W.U.A., cual edificio ac-
tualmente ta bao construc-
cion.

P. Cuminzando 1972 Lago lo tin

trabao pa graduados di MU-
LO-A? Pakiko Lago no ta
duna curso pa graduados di
MULO-A, por ehempel, boek-
houden, pa asina despues
nan por haya un trabao na
Lago? Pakiko ta solamente
tin oportunidad pa graduados
di MULO-B of estudiantes
tecnico?

. Lago su operacionnan ta di
naturaleza tecnico y como
tal tin mester di capacidad-
nan cu ta ser sinja den
schoolnan tecnico of cienti-
fico. Pa tal motibo, mayoria
di hende cu nos a emplea
recientemente ta graduados
di schoolnan tecnico di Aru-
ba y nan mester a sigi nos
Programa Preparatorio di
Pre-Empleo. De vez en cuan-
do, nos ta emplea un emple-
ado clerical cu tin diploma
MULO, pero nos necesidad

pa hende di e tipo di trabao
aki ta asina minimal cu nos
no por hustifica un programa
di training special.

. Mi kier sabi pakiko Lago no

ta laga e watchmen controla
e autonan cu ta parkeer den
e sitio di parkeer na Porta
Mayor. Hopi di e autonan no
ta parkeer bon y hopi bez ta
dificil pa un hende saka su
auto di e lugar ey.

. Poliz di Lago ta haci tur lo

posible pa controla parkeer-
mento na Porta No. 2. Si e
cantidad di trabao ta permiti,
un poliz ta ser staciona den
e sitio di parkeer.

Pakiko Lago no por pone po-
co mas atencion na e hopi
pacientnan cu ta sinti lomba
pa dokter por yama mas tan-
to di nan posible pa mira e
specialista di lomba durante
su bishita anual na e isla, of
ta na Lago?

. Aparentemente e pregunta ta

referi na e cirujano neurolo-
go kende ta bishita Aruba
periodicamente. Gustosamen-
te Depto. Medico di Lago ta
referi pa e specialista aki
cualkier caso cu por ser yu-
da pa su opinion of trato.
Sinembargo, mester ser en-
tendi cu hopi casos di lom-
ba no ta di tipo neuro-cirur-
gico y nan lo no por bene-
ficia di un tal consultacion.

. Ta berdad cu tin un rumor

pafor cu Lago tin plan pa ha-
ci assistants y operators CR?
Esey ta berdad, si of no.

. Aunque e pregunta ta puntra

cu si tin un rumor, nos ta
asumi cu e pregunta su in-
tencion ta pa puntra si tin
algo berdad den e rumor.
Algun refineria tin "chief
operators” kende ta miem-
bros di gerencia, pero nin-
gun di nan cu nos conoce
tin tur assistants y operators
como CR. Lago no tin plan
pa haci tur assistants y ope-
rators CR.

Q. Is the resettlement plan still

in effect? Does it also in-
clude the United States?

. It has been agreed between

the Company and the Inde-
pendent Oil Workers Union
of Aruba that in the event it
is required to make adjust-
ments because of operating
conditions, the Company
agrees to extend the Reset-
tlement Policy dated August
2, 1965, for the duration of
the Collective Working Agree-
ment. The above is docu-
mented in the present Col-
lective Working Agreement,
Article XXI - Section 4 - Re-
settlement.

. How many years more does

Lago plan to continue refin-
ing oil on Aruba? Or at least,
how many more years does
Lago plan to continue work-
ing in Aruba?

. It is not possible at this time

to say how many more years
Lago will continue to refine
oil in Aruba. But considering
the world situation concern-
ing the market and demand
for oil products, we are of
the opinion that Lago’s fu-
ture has a solid base.

. Why doesn’t Lago build a

club for employees in Oran-
jestad?

. Lago has already agreed to

contribute up to Fis. 50,000
to the construction of an
Employee Recreation Center
by 1.0.W.U.A., which build-
ing is at present under con-
struction.

. Starting 1972, will Lago have

jobs for Mulo-A graduates?
Why doesn’t Lago give cour-
ses for MULO-A graduates,
bookkeeping, and later on
they can get a job at Lago?
Why only opportunities for
MULO-B graduates or Tech-
nical students?

A. Lago’s operations are techni-

cal in nature, and as such
require the type of skills that
are taught in schools with a

er 2 DIG SS002 =:

Management Answers Your Questions

technical or scientific orien-
tation.

For this reason, most of the
people we have hired recent-
ly are graduates of the is-
land’s technical schools, and
these people have been ex-
posed to our Pre-Employ-
ment Preparatory Program.
Occasionally, we do hire a
clerical employee with a
Mulo background, but our
need for people of this type
is so minimal that we can-
not justify a special training
program.

Q. Why can’t Lago pay a little

more attention to the many
“back” patients working for
her and see to It that the
doctors call up as many of
said patients as possible to
see the back” specialist
upon his yearly visit to the
Island, or Is It to Lago?

A. Apparently the questioner is

referring to a neurosurgeon
who periodically visits Aru-
ba. The Lago Medical De-
partment gladly refers to this
specialist any case that may
be helped by his opinion or
treatment. However, it should
be understood that many
“back” cases are not of a
neurosurgical type, and would
not be benefited by such a
consultation.

Q. Is it true that there Is a ru-

mor outside that Lago Is
planning to make assistants
and operators CR? Is that
true, yes or no?

A. Although the question asks

if there is a rumor we as-
sume that the question is in-
tended to be whether there
is any truth in the rumor.
Some refineries have chief
operators who are manage-
ment people but none that
we know of have all assis-
tants and operators CR. La-
go does not plan to make
all assistants and operators
CR.

Chubato Aircondition
Ta Mehora Seguridad
Y Condicion di Trabao

Autonan cu aparato di air-
condition awor ta comun den

ciona riba nos isla. E vehiculo
aki ta yama popularmente "'chu-
batu’’, y ta e unico ‘animal’ aire-

co di compania. Tin un otro
equipo cu yama giraf y tin un

cu ta parce un kameel (Ross

Actualmente nan ta usa e

chubatu aki pa yena zwavel riba

cientemente compania a instala
un aparato di aircondition den
cabina di e chubatu, pa eli-
mina un serie di inconveniencia
pa asina e operador haci su
trabao eficazmente y cu seguri-
dad. E cabina cu ta 4 pia na tur
banda y cinco pia halto, ta pro-
bablemente e cabine airecondi-
cioné di mas chikitu riba nos
isla.

Anteriormente e operador
mester a lora su curpa den can-
tidad di panja pa su proteccion,
e mester a bisti bril di seguri-
dad y otro equipo pa proteha su
mes contra stof di zwavel. Pa-
reciendo un astronauta, no so-
lamente calor tabata molestié,
pero tin bez e mester a stop di
traha pa e “fria’” un poco y sa-
gudi e stof geel for di su panja,

pletamente elimina, e operador
awendia ta core den su chu-
batu a la grandi, confortable-
mente sintaé den su cuartico pri-

Airconditioned cars in a warm
climate as ours are quite com-
mon but Lago now has the only
airconditioned payloader on the
island. Popularly called "chuba-
to” in Papiamento, which means
"billy goat’ in English, the pay-
loader is the first airconditioned
“animal” in the company’s mo-
bile equipment "'zoo.”” Other
species are the "giraffe" and

one resembling a "’camel” (Ross
Carrier).

This special payloader is used

of uncomfortable protective equip-

Airconditioned Payloader Improves Working Conditions

Pier. The aircooling unit was re-
cently installed in the pay-

sulfur dust. Looking almost like
a spaceman, he not only felt un-

loader's cabin to eliminate a se-
ries of inconveniences for the
operator in carrying out the job
efficiently and safely. Measuring
4 ft. square and 5 ft. high, the
cabin is probably the smallest
airconditioned work space on
the island.

Previously, the operator had
to swaddle himself in a lot of
protective clothing, wear safety
goggles and other bulky equip-
ment to protect himself from the

comfortable from the heat, but
had to stop the loading oper-
ation frequently to "cool off”
and shake off the yellow dust
from his clothes and clean his
goggles in order to be able to
see better.

With these problems eliminat-
ed by the aircooled cabin, the
operator now rides his "chuba-
to” in style and in cool comfort
in his easily controllable private
little cubicle.

The latest addition to Lago's
Industrial Services Fire Section
is a 1000-gallon-per-minute Air
Foam Pumper which is equipped
with a 54-ft. articulated "Aer-
O-Squrt" boom. Installed on a
turntable and hydraulically ope-
rated, the boom can rotate a
full circle and can rapidly and
efficiently provide a master
stream of foam or water to fight
fires that are hard to get at,
over and in elevated pipe banks,
floating roof tanks and other
high locations where hydrocar-
bon leaks might require appli-
cation of water fog to prevent
fire. With a vantage height of
54 ft. and an operating pressure
of 200 p.s.i.g., the nozzle can be
controlled electrically from the
rear panel to provide the re-
quired fog or straight stream
patterns.

The riew pumper truck, the
first of Lago’s fire trucks with
the articulated boom, has a ca-
pacity of 750 gallons of foam
with proportioning capabilities
to generate 3, 4 and 6%/o foam.



New feature is articulated boom, shown here in action.

Auxiliary water connections at
the rear will permit using the
boom to provide cooling water
at the same time foam can be
generated and discharged
through the normal 2-14-inch
discharge outlets.

The boom (called Squrt by its
manufacturer, the Snorkel Fire
Equipment Company) can be
fitted either with a foam or wa-
ter nozzle.

The truck body and motor,
supplied by International Har-
vester, the fire equipment from
National Foam Company, and
the Squrt jointly cost approxi-
mately Fis. 100,000. This mo-
dern fire truck replaces an ol-
der-type pumper and _ again
brings the total mobile fire
equipment at Lago to nine.

"With this new fire truck, La-
go's firefighters now have a unit
capable of placing water or
foam where it is needed most,
where it will do the most good,
reach locations that are inac-
cessible to other mobile units,”
says Fire Chief Peter Storey.
