That has All been changed by the bruising International pet a politics of an Energy hungry world. Now the multinational Oil giants Are focusing their attention on these Oil bearing Black spongy Sands entered in the Canadian wilderness 500 Miles above the . Border. Huge machines have started ripping at the Earth As the curtain rises on what Petroleum Industry officials . Experts and Canadian politicians believe will be Athabasca sentry into the world of major Energy suppliers. One of the worlds biggest known Oil reserves a estimates Range upward from 300 billion barrels of crude As much As the known recoverable reserves in the Middle East a is trapped in Sand and water at Athabasca. So far the Oil Industry has scratched at Only a tiny Corner of the 19,000 Square Miles of tar deposits a Region the size of new Hampshire and Massachusetts combined. A solitary extraction Plant owned by Sun Oil of Philadelphia is producing 52,000 barrels of crude a Day. But a target Date of 1978 has been set for a new billion Dollar Plant to be on Stream. The most conservative Industry executives estimate that a million barrels of crude a Day will be flowing from Athabasca by the end of the 1980s. That a just a Little less than the amount the United states got from saudi Arabia before the embargo. Those experts willing to look ahead further see 20 to 30 extraction plants producing three million barrels a Day from Athabasca by the turn of the Century. That represents nearly a sixth of what the United states currently consumes daily. A that will be much More than Canada needs a a senior Canadian official in Ottawa told this reporter. A i presume the United states will get the America May also Benefit from the technological development of the tar Sands. Vast reserves of crude Oil Are held in the generally similar shale Oil and Coal formations of the United states.

Nickle a leading Canadian authority on Energy and former publisher of the daily Oil bulletin in Calgary. Athabasca was ignored in the past by the Oil giants because crude was much easier to get elsewhere. Winning a barrel Ful at Athabasca costs $4 from tar Sands near the surface. At Athabasca men and machines must move and process three tons of peat bog and Sand to win just one barrel of crude in temperatures that hover at 30 below Zero in Winter and too above in summer. Capital expenditures at Athabasca will be astronomical. Plans for three new mining operation plants to be completed by the Early 1980s Call for Cash outlays totalling $3 billion. The first of these scheduled to go on Stream in 1978, is planned by sync rude Canada Ltd., a company formed by four . Firms Exxon corp., cities service co., Atlantic Richfield co., and Gulf Oil corp., in partnership with the government of Alberta which owns the tar Sands. The sync rude project with an extraction Plant bigger than most refineries and a Power Plant Large enough to fuel a Small City is the most expensive planned to Date a Cost of $1.2 billion. Two companies of the Royal dutch Shell group Shell Canada Ltd. And Shell explorer Ltd. Plan a $1 billion Plant to produce 100,000 barrels a Day. The third projected Plant will be built by Petrosina Canada Ltd., at a Cost of $850 million to produce 122,500 barrels a Day. A what makes investments this size worthwhile for the Oil giants is that the economics Are finally coming right a said a senior Canadian government Energy official. The Middle East crude that comes out of the ground at to cents a barrel costs refineries $7 because of royalties and taxes. Experts Point out that 26.5 billion barrels of crude can be won at Athabasca by conventional strip mining methods at a Cost of a Little Over $4 a barrel.
