Herald Tribune Ntws Strvicc LONDON The oil position of the Western world is for the moment very comfortable This time there is no threat of an oil famine in Europe as there was at the time of the Suez crisis two years always assum ing that the Sheikdom of Kuwait remains firmly attached to the West In the turbulent Middle East the Sheikdom of Kuwait is the key supplying nearly one third of the areas shipments to the nonCommunist world In event of a conflict Kuwait would be fairly easy to control directly by military means It is compact on the coast and there is only a short stretch of pipeline to be kept undersurveillance THIS NO DOUBT is recognized by the Sheik as one of the many compelling reasons for keeping on friendly terms with the West Add to Kuwaits output that of the one nonArab oil state in the Middle East Iran where supplies are not jeopardized and you have over half of the total oil produc tion of the area Moreover production in both these countries could be increased rapidly If Iraq and Saudi Arabia had to be counted out with a consequent loss of 80 to 90 million tons of oil a year it is estimatedthat Kuwait and Iran could supply an additional 20 million tons in a matter

million to 40 million tons a year could be pro duced just by letting the Amer ican oilmen in Texas and else where resume normal operations Finally there is a worldwide surplus of tankers available which could be brought into use if the Suez Canal were blocked or the oil pipeline to the Eastern Mediterranean were cut SO FAR the countries astride the Canal and the pipelines have remained remarkably quiet None of the things which happened last time when the Western powers sent troops into the Middle East have occurred The Syrians have not touched the pipes bringing the oil from Iraq across their territory the Egyptians have not tampered with the ships going through the Canal and the Saudis have not repeated their refusal to supply their oil to unpopular customers Perhaps the
