Ndl'l, has tuld Hie local utility that barring any unex- pected cutbacks by producers, it foresees no curtailment of wintertime service nr interruption of deliveries which could lead to the heating crunch behiK forecast for the comiiiK winter in some other parts of the country. Pipeline gas deliveries In Iowa-Illinois customers this season are expected to be at (he same flow as in the last two years, the company said, and should be sufficient to meet customers' needs. Despite this optimistic short-term outlook NliPl, contin- ues to experience difficulties in additional supplies for future use. Over the last four years, the utility company reported, the pipeline company has found less and less gas available for purchase by interstate pipelines under long- term contracts, and this situation appears to be. getting worse rather than heller. As a result, 17 nf the country's 21 major gas transmission firms, including NGl'L. have been forced to cut back tin (non- deliveries to utilities since Must of these reductions have been on a year-round basis. but NGPL has curtailed its warm-weather deliveries to insure meeting the peak demands of its customers during the winter months, a prime reason for Hie supplier's confidence about the winter now beginning. Siime of the other pipeline firms recently have announced additional curtailments for the months ahead, prompting well-publicized predictions of a "heating gas crunch" in other areas of the country, NfiPL. however tines mil present- ly envision any such additional curtailment. NGPL has reported a series of aggressive programs under way to secure new supplies for both immediate and long-term use. These include: 1. NGPL. in partnership with another major transmission firm, is completing the first phase nf construction of the ex- tended "Stingray" offshore pipeline system deep into the Gulf of Mexico. This system, one of the largest ever built in U.S. waters, initially will provide transportation for some trillion cubic feel nf offshore gas reserves committed to N'GPL and will deliver into the company's transmission net- work more than 100 million fee! of new per winter and 4110 million by next winter. 2. The pipeline firm, together with several of its utility customers, including Iowa-Illinois, has made advance pay- ments to producers and equity investments in the exploration and development of offshore tracts in the Gulf which have good potential for new supplies of gas. In return, they receive rights to buy all or part of any gas discovered. These pro- grams have'involved total funding of 81-15 million, divided al- most equally between NGIM, and the participating u ill les Interests have been acquired in III offshore tracts. U of which already have yielded Has discoveries with Hie firsl volumes flowing to Midwestern homes this winter via the Stingray had embarked on similar programs on Us own and has advanced a gross total of million In dale in off- shore supply efforts a figure which lops These payments have secured rights to gas on II o fs lore tracts. Ill of which have produced discoveries with drilling vet to begin on many of the others. I In addition, the transmission Mrm has expanded its efforts to secure new sources of gas Jrorii Hie traditional on- shore producing fields of the Southwest and expects to invest some million over Hie next 12 years to develop new do- mestic supplies. 5 Closer to home, existing storage facilities are being expanded and new ones developed to meet increased peak- season demands Four of the NGPL's 111 existing storage reservoirs in Illinois and Iowa have been expanded this year by an aggregate total of 15 percent to have more fuel "on tap" for the local utilities which draw from these reservoirs during cold weather b On the longer-range basis, NUI'L also is devoting major attention to a number nf projects expected to result in large new gas supplies for the decades ahead. These include gasification of large deposits of lignite coal from reserves in North Dakota, the Arctic Gas Pipeline In bring gas from new fields in Alaska and Northwest Canada to Hie Midwest, and the possible imports of liquefied natural gas from producing area nil other continents. As a result of these short-ami long-term programs, offi- cials of Iowa-Illinois saitl Wednesday they are confident thai natural gas will continue flowing In consumers in this area during the approaching winter and for many more to come.
