Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - April 26, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Friday, April 1974 THE LETHBRIDQE HERALD 25 Pipeline treaty proposal with Canada supported Winnipeg grain By PRANK WJTTER Herald Washington Bureau WASHINGTON A high- ranking United States state department official gave strong support Thursday to a proposal for a pipeline treaty with Canada Such a treaty might set out the rules of the game" for pipelines carrying natural gas from the Arctic through Canada to U S and Canadian mantels, said Julius Katz, deputy assistant secretary of state for international resources Negotiations on a treaty were proposed by Canadian Energy Minister Donald Macdonald when he visited Washington in late January KaU claimed Thursday that the U S had made the proposal in 1970 but Canada wab not interested then However, his remarks were the firit official indication that the U S is willing to pick up the idea again now 'We expect to initiate dis- cussions in the near future looking toward an agreement on pipeline transit Katz said The treaty as seen by Katz, would ensure security of any transcontinental pipelines and cover tariffs, fees and guaran- teed througnout of oil or natural gas While the idea had come up Coal royalties review resumed EDMONTON (CP) A departmental committee has resumed its review of Gulf Oil doubles earnings TORONTO (CP) Gulf Oil Canada Ltd announces first- quarter earnings more than double those of the corresponding period a year earlier the second major oil company to do so Gulf s profit for the first three months was 8 million against 8 million a year earlier and 2 million in the fourth quarter of 1973 President Jerry McAfee told the annual meeting of shareholders Thursday that even if these earnings were to continue for the full year our return on capital employed would be only 15 3 per not excessive in the circumstances Gull declared an extra divi dend of 10 cents a share the same as a year ago which will be paid July 2 in addition to the regular quarterly dividend of 15 cents Mr McAfee said uncertainties face the industry so there is no assurance that these results are indicative of what our earnings for the full year will be Present indications are that not all the cost increases laced in the importation of offshore crude oil will be reimbursed by the government s compensation lormula To whatever extent we are not able to recover added costs our earnings will be reduced Alberta s coal royalties, the legislature was told Thursday Bill Dickie mines and minerals minister, said the committee had delayed its work until a review of the coal industry was made public The report by the Energy Resources Conservation Board suggested the royalty on metallurgical coal should be gradually increased over the next five years in relation to the proposal, backed by Otawa, for construction of a MacKenzie Valley natural gas pipeline, said the U S had not yet reached a conclusion on the most favorable route A rival proposal to send the gas through Alaska for liquefaction and shipment by tankers will shortly be made by an American firm El Paso Natural Gas We would use such a treaty dealing not with a specific project but pipeline transit in general Katz said Katz was speaking in on >A 200 shares 02 lo md Coi ill i rose 01 lo SI 98 iifjas kil lilt oils and was il Ulon a lurnoxerol 19 shales Sonet a
