Monday, April 2, 1973 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 13 Emergency oil-sharing an under discussion OTTAWA CCP) Canada and other members of the Organ, ization for Economic Co-oper- ation and Development (OECD) might come to the rescue if Mildle East countries cut off the flow of oil to the United Soviets press for V.S. oil exhibition By HEDRICK SMITH New York Times (Service MOSCOW With the soviet Union looking increasingly to the United States for the tech- nology and capital to speed up development of its massive Si- berian oil and gas reserves. Moscow is pressing negotiations a huge American exhibition technology here of petroleum next fall. Oscar Katov, president of the PRM Corp., a Chicago-based public-relations concern hand- ling advance preparations, said about 100 major American com- panies had already indicated they planned to participate. These include standard oil of Indiana, Phillips Petroleum, In- ternational Harvest and Dresser Industries, said. among others, he The exhibition, to be held at Moscow's Sokolniki Park from Oct. 23-31, is expected to be the largest American trade show ever held in the Soviet Union, with the clear intention of both sides to emphasize sales. It is to be a trade show for about specialists and adminis- trators, Katov reported. The Soviet government, now putting top priority on oil and gas development in Siberia, has already given the American ex- hibitors a list of more than 100 speified types of equipment in which it is interested. The original Soviet initiative for the exhibition developed about two years well be- fore the over-all American-So- viet trade agreement was sign- ed last fall. Presumably, the White House will decide before the October exhibition whether it will go ahead with massive credits for the Siberian natural gas development in the Tyumen region. States or Japan, Energy Minis- ter Donald Macdonald indicated Sunday. He said during an interview on the CBC television program Weekend that OECD members are negotiating an oil-sharing system that would be put into effect if the Middle East oil-pro. during countries held back their oil either to force higher prices or for political reasons. "It is conceivable" that the oil cutoff could apply only to the United States or Japan, he said. The Middle East coun- tries, mostly Arab, might use oil as a means of forcing the United States to change its pro- Israel policy." Mr. Macdonald said the first concern of OECD members is to act together and share oil supplies in such a case. However, he said, any contin- gency plans should not inhibit the Canadian government in drawing up its own energy pol- icy. The minister declined to critL eke the Middle East countries for exerting pressure to get higher prices. "I don't think you can draw a moral They're as en- titled to get as good a price as Ontario else. or Alberta or anyone Prof. Leonard Waverman of the University of Toronto said on the same program that in- creases in oil prices are solely because of the oil producing countries' cartel and there is no economic reason for oil price increases. There was no actual shortage of "it is only fools who be- lieve there is an energy crisis." But Jerry McAfee, president of Gulf Oil Ltd., said costs such as the million necessary to drill a well in the Mackenzie Delta are forcing prices up for Western Canada oil. "The era of cheap energy is past and we've just got to face up to the fact that we're going to have to pay more." Prof. Waverman replied that there would be no need to drill delta wells if there was enough Middle East oil available at reasonable prices. He men- tioned federal restrictions which prevent foreign oil being used in Canada west of the Ottawa River valley. Motor vehicles major source of pollutants EDMONTON (CP) About tons of pollutants were released into the atmosphere in Edmonton during 1971, ac- cording to a report for that year tabled in the legislature. The report, tabled by Bill Yurko, minister of the environ- ment, said Calgary received tons of pollutions, ex- cluding heat and water vapor, during the same period. Motor vehicles were the ma- jor source of pollutants in both cities, the report said, contrib- uting up to 86 per cent. The report, prepared by Western Research Ltd., said It present and proposed federal and provincial controls on mo- tor vehicles and industrial em- issions are strictly enforced, air pollution can be cut by two- thirds by 1985. However, unless there are further controls, pollution will start to increase again after that time, the report states. The major difference in air pollution between the prov- ince's two major cities came from industrial sources. The report said the Edmonton total from industrial sources was 168, 000 tons, about 10 times the Calgary total.
