New Energy Battle looms on exporting alaskan Oil by Edward k. Delong Washington up president Carter May be headed for a new Energy dispute with Congress Over whether to Send surplus alas Kan Oil to Japan in Exchange for Middle East Oil congressional sources said saturday congressional and administration sources said Carter s Energy planners favor exports to Japan As the Best Way to Deal with an Oil glut expected on the West coast after the Alaska pipeline opens this summer.

No pipeline exists to carry excess Oil from the West coast to the rest of the nation o Leary said one possibility for dealing with excess alaskan Oil would be to keep some Wells shut Down until a West to East pipeline is ready he said the other option a aside from exports to Japan a would be to ship Oil by Tanker from Alaska to the Panama canal where it would be transferred to smaller tankers and moved through the canal to the Gulf or East coasts Lite 5fcrnlb founded on july 4, 1892 published monday thru Friday afternoons mild sunday morning by Freedom newspapers. 1135 e Van Buren St., Brownville Texas 78620 second class postage paid at Brownsville Texas 78520.
