B. Morton announced on May 11 that he had "determined that it is in the national interest of the United States to grant a right-of-way permit for the Trans-Alaska actual issuance of the permit and construction of the pipeline must await a green light from the federal courls. Several conservation organizations which have blocked the pipeline project for two years by court injunction have staled their intentions to continue tho legal battle. Because of its significant national importance, it is quite likely that the ultimate legal decision on tho pipeline will be made by the U.S. Supreme Court in the first full-fledged testing of the National Environ- mental Policy Act. In deciding to permit the construction of an oil pipeline from the Pnidhoe Bay oil field on the Alaskan North Slope to the port of Valdez, Morton Stated that he "had the benefit of the most comprehensive en- vironmental impact statement ever prepared, as well as numerous studies and analyses and comments of many thoughtful people." He acknowledged that transportation of the oil "will involve some environmental costs and some environmental risks regardless of how the oil is transported and over what route." Nevertheless, "the United States vitally needs this oil delivered to our West Coast as promptly and as safely as pos- Morton declared. According to the interior secretary, the U.S. de- mand for oil by 1980 will be approximately 20 to 211 million barrels per day. Without the North Slope oil, the U.S. production will be only about one-half that amount. The Pnidhoe Bay field is expected to con- tribute about 1.0 to 2.0 million barrels per day by I960 which will offset the projected West Coast daily deficit. MORTON CLAIMED that he gave full considera- tion to the various alternative routes, especially the Trans-Alaska-Canada route along the Mackenzie River to Edmonton. That route, he pointed out, "would be longer and would traverse a greater area of perma- frost, would cause greater actual damage to terrain and biotic habitat." He admitted that department of the interior stud- ies indicate "the Trans-Alaska route involves a great- er pollution risk from potential earthquakes and from the tanker route from Valdez to the "lower 48 states." Morton hastened to add, however, that "significant steps have been and will yet be taken to protect against those risks." The "significant steps" Secretary Morton alludes to are the stipulations governing the permit and with which Alyeska Pipeline Services Company and the petroleum industry must comply. Thomas I.. Kimball, executive vice-president of the National Wildlife Federation, for one, considers the stipulations to be of critical importance. In a letter sent to Morton in early May, Kimball urged that "limited public hearings be held to con- sider in depth Die adequacy of the design and con- struction stipulations lie recommended that the technical stipulations "bo re-examined and re- evaluated to insure thai the petroleum industry and the Alyeska Pipeline Services Company are required to consider all 'state of the or the best avail- able technology needed to prevent oil spillage in the natural environment." Kimball explained that he is especially concerned about the adequacy oE technical stipulations "related to the movement of oil through a pipeline or via surface tankers."
