Herald Ottawa Bweaii OTTAWA Domestic oil consumers could end up paying another million-a- year more, than predicted, starting in mid-May, because Ottawa forgot to include synthetic, tar sands oil and natural gas-derivative oil in setting the "single oil price for Canada" at a barrel at the wellhead, plus transportation costs. According to both Alberta and Ottawa energy officiate, adding the extra costs to domestic oil refiners of the higher-grade synthetic oil, derived from the tar sands and the even higher-grade pentane-plus .oils, derived from natural gas, could push up the average oil price for Canada by at least five cents and perhaps as much as 20 cents a barrel. This could in effect push the, so-called wellhead base price? to an average of a barrel, plus transportation costs or to as much as an average of a barrel, plua transportation costs. Energy Minister Donald Macdonald, along with Alberta and Ottawa officials, admitted yesterday that the two governments disagree on whether the two unconventional oils, repre- senting about 13 per cent of the country's production, were in fact covered by last week's oil price agreement.' Mr. Macdonald said that discussions on the matter would take place this month between Ottawa and Alberta officials, in an attempt to straighten out. the misunderstanding. Re admitted during an interview yesterday outside the Commons that Ottawa might have to allow a "premium" charge on the two types of unconventional oil, above the a barrel wellhead price, transportation charges, for "good old conventional oil." A senior federal energy de- partment official explained that the net effect of allowing such a "premium" charge for the unconventional, domestic oils could amount to 5 cents to 20 cents a barrel, if it was averaged over the price for all domestic crude oil He said he personally did not think the price increase would be more than 5 cents a barrel, pushing the averaged single oil price to J6.55 a barrel, plus transportation. An Alberta government offi- cial in Ottawa said that during November, the last month for which complete production figures are available, Alberta produced about 3.5 per cent of its oil as synthetic crude from the tar sands at Fort MacMurray ans an additional 10.2 per cent as pentane plus condensate oil, from natural gas. According tb Alberta figures, the two unconventional oils were selling at a barrel, effective wellhead price, com- pared to a barrel wellhead price for conventional crude oil. He described the "pentane- plus" oil as a highly-volatile liquid, derived from natural gas, that is "like gasoline without the lead." It is often used in blending gasoline and other high-grade oil products. The synthetic crude oil, "manufactured" from the tar sands, is more expensive than, conventional crude because of the additional processing and in part because it contains fewer contaminants, such as sulphur, the Alberta official said. Since the oil refineries mix conventional and uncon- ventional oils in producing gasoline, heating oil and other oil products, the consumer doesn't knew" which oil his. products were made from. But the consumer .ends up paying tbeiaverage cost for all the oils. The federal energy official, in admittig what he termed "a difference in perception as to how the basic wellhead price (per barrel) is made said that Ottawa's public practice has been to use a a barrel averaged wellhead price, which would include conventional oil, pentane plus and synthetic oil. Meanwhile, Alberta has decided to allow small price increases on certain kinds of oil above the level agreed to at last month's federal provincial energy conference, External Affairs Minister Mitchell Sharp said today. "Alberta decided unilaterally there should be a small increase for certain kinds of oil but the average increase is so small we are not prepared to question he said in the Commons. Hutteritelanddeals termed 'irresponsible9 By AL SCARTH Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONYON Some Hutterite colonies are being irresponsible in expanding their holdings, a Southern Alberta MLA has charged. Ray Speaker (SC Little Bow) says the special advisory committee on communal property and land use is not always being advised beforehand by some colonies about huge land purchases. "If the Hutterites continue in this trend of being arrogant aud irresponsible about the expansion guidelines, the government will have. to. consider re-instating the Communal .Property Mr. Speaker said Thursday in an interview. The committee has been advising colonies on expansion since repeal of the act last year. Inside Dr. Arnold Platt, committee chairman, conceded Thursday that the Waterton Colony was "negligent" in not advising the committee until late in negotiations for expanding at Carmangay. Farmers and residents of the area 55 miles northwest of Lethbridge have called a meeting in Carmangay tonight about the new colony. Dr. Platt will probably attend. "They had, in fact, gone fairly far with the deal before they informed Dr. Platt said in a telephone interview from Calgary. He said the colony was hot'irresponsible but "a little negligent in not informing me; sooner about some of the land they've taken options on." Dr. Platt said the colony told him the real estate representative involved in the deal had said he would advise 'How's your Classified....... 28-32 26 Comment.......... 4 District............19 Family........ 22, 23 Joan Waterfield___ 7 Local News___ 17, 18 Markets 27 Sports.......... 14-16 Theatres........... 7 Travel.............11 TV...........6, 9, 10 Weather........... 3 At Home 8 LOW TONIGHT 35 HIGH SATURDAY 55 CLOUDY Lawyer afraid Hearst tape 6a death cover' SAN FRANCISCO (CP) Fears that Patricia Hearst is dead and that her latest com- munique may be a trick have been expressed by a lawyer as the FBI vowed to continue its two-month hunt for the terror- ists' kidnap hideout. "I do have serious concern Last Group of Seven member dies KLEINBURG, Ont. (CP) A, Y. Jackson, a father of modern Canadian landscape painting and only survivor of the once-controversial Group of Seven, died early today in a nursing home in this community 25 miles northwest of Toronto. He was 91. The one-time rebel of Canadian art had lived for years in this rustic area, within touching distance of the sylvan scenery he had painted for almost 70 years. He will be buried here alonpidt others members of the group. Half a century ago, Mr. Jackson and the other six unknowns pooled their talent to break away from European techniques and create a type of painting suitable to the Canadian wiMermw scene. It was rough and vigorous, reflecting as no art had done before the savage landscape of Canada, and it changed the course of Canadian only after being denounced by the critics of the early 1920s as "art gone mad." Now the Jackson paintings are among the most prized acquisitions of Canadian collectors: The artist himself was honored as a Companion of the Order of Canada and as a Companion of the Order of St. Michael and St. George On hit 80th birthday, entertaining a few friends, he had expressed mild hope ;
