Depending on their findings, six companies are expected to begin jungle drilling operations within the next 12 months. Pet- roperu arxi Occidental already have two drilling rig" each at uork on jungh sites. Another dozen companies, in- cluding U.S., Japanese, West German, Polish, Spanish and Italian interests, are negotiating with Petroperu for expioration- develcpment contracts in the vast jungle which covers tht eastern half of Peru. Confident that the search will be successful, Petroperu offi- cials already are laying plans for construction of a mil- lion trans-Andean pipeline to transport oil from the Amazon area to the Pacific coast. Plans announcsd by Gen. Jorge Fernandez Maldonado, the military government's min- ister of mines and energy, call for construction of the 563-mile pipeline to begin in May, 1974. OIL LOW IN SULPHUR The oil boom got under way late in 1971 when Parker Drill- ing Co. of the United States, working for Petroperu. struck oil at Trompeteros, deep in the Amazon jungle. Petroperu re- ports success in more than half of 15 wells already drilled. The crude is reported low in sul- phur. Service contracts for jungle exploration and development were quickly signed with Occi- has found oil in its first two Richfield, Phillips Petroleum Corp. and British Petroleum Co., all of which are working on tracts of 2.4 million acres. Contracts for work on similar- sized tracts also were signed with four consortiums made up of Tennaco and Union Oil of and Shell; Getty Oil, Pan Ocean Oil and Transworld ?etroleum; and Sun Oil. Continental Oil and Champlin Inc. Negotiations are under way with other international com- panies for contract blocks in the Amazon Basin, a central jungle area further south, and the Madre de Dios area in south- eastern Peru. The firms include Cities Sen-- ice, Signal, Cayman, Amerada Hess and Oceanic-El Paso, all of the United States; the Andes Petroleum Exploration Corp., a Japanese consortium; Deminex of West Germany: Lopex of Po- land; Hispanoil of Spain and AGIP of Italy. The contracts provide for state ownership of all oil found. Contracted companies would be paid for their services in crude petroleum, which would be split crages more than 100 inches a year and the humidity and heat "are in the words of a Peruvian geologist Increased drilling activity is expected to place a heavy strain on air and river trans- port in the Amazon Basin as well as on manpower in DIG area. Consumer credit on increase OTTAWA (CP firms that report Selected monthly on at the wellhead by Petroperu j consumer credit had sil.67 bil- and the company. The first contracts, starting with Occidental, called for a 50- 50 split. However, successive contracts have come down to 46-54, with the state company getting the Isreer shaic. Cur- rent negotiations are reported to revolve around a 45-55 split. The contracted companies, committed to work requiring an investment of between S8 mil- lion and million over the first four years, would pay minor taxes and social security. Petroperu geologists believe that oil-bearing structures un- derlie most of the huge jungle area, bordered on the west by the Andes Mountains, the north by Ecuador and Colombia, and on the east and south by Brazil and Bolivia. Says one top ranking question do you get it TOUGH CHALLENGE Spokesmen for foreign explor- ation companies describe the jungle as one of the most diffi- cult areas they've encountered. Transportation in and out of the jungle is by plane, helicop- ter, barge, canoe and on foot, along paths hacked by machete. Their work is hard and the conditions are complicated by insect and snake bites, malaria, dysentery and infection and a of the company's geologists: "The j lion owed to them at the end of February, an increase of 18.8 per cent from a year earlier, Statistics Canada reported Mon- day. That is equivalent to about for every man, woman and child in the country. Leading the increases in cos- sumer credit were personal cash loans by chartered 24.8 per cent to billion. Sales finance and consumer loan companies had billion outstanding in retail instalment sales paper, up 19 7 per cent, plus billion in personal cash loans, up 19.8 per cent. Policy loans by life insurance companies totalled million, up 2.4 per cent. Personal cash loans made un- c-er the Small Loans Act fell 12.1 per cent to million. Other monthly reporters, such as stores and Quebec savings banks reported outstanding bal- ances of million, up 7.1 per cent. Quarterly reporters, such as credit unions, credit card firms and utilities, reported balances of billion for the fourth quarter, up 14.1 per cent. Total outstanding credit from both quarterly and monthly re- porters at the end of 1972 was billion, up 17.2 per cent from a year earlier.

Matft, a id fine Easter gift. Eruh ond not 99c as previously advertised DEALLY SITUATED T WEEN THE ABSURD THE RIDICULOUS. By not going to extremes, Volvo accomplishes more than cars that do. Up front aVblvo has" as much legroom as a Cadillac DeViile.In back, as m uch as a Buick Electra. Which gives Volvo the space and comfort of big cars li the one on the right. Instead of squeezing you into the ridiculously small space of little cars like the one on the left. Yet a Volvo s turning radius is actually smaller than a VW Beetle. Which means Volvo can maneuver in and out of parking spaces and traffic like little cars. To call maneuverability a big-car specialty would be absurd. And while a Volvo may not leave big cars behind in the dust, its 2 liter engine lets you move right out in the fast lane. Something that can't lie said as quickly about little cars. So instead of compromising by going to extremes, go halfway and get everything. Get a Volvo. To get anything else would either absurd or ridiculous.
