Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 4, 1971, Lethbridge, Alberta Alberta MPs question action Saturday, December 4, 1971 THE UTHBRIDGB HERAID 9 Energy board chairman grilled on gas export application rejection OTTAWA (CP) Three Al- berta MPs took turns Friday grilling the chairman of the Na- tional Energy Board over the rejection last month of applica- tions to export 2.7 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Board Chairman K. D. How- land was appearing before Ilic Commons miscellaneous esti- mates committee during study and approval of a requested Trail wildlife group may charge B.C. Hydro TRAIL, B.C. (CP) The president of the Trail Wildlife Association says the associa- tion is considering legal action against Uie British Columbia Hydro and Power Authority. John Renzie said the associa- tion made the decision at a re- cent special meeting because B.C. Hydro is planning to dump two million cubic yards of waste into the Slocan Pool from the excavation of the Koolenay Canal, 30 miles north of here. Mr. Renzie said Hie associa- tion has taken the position that the situation can be avoided by building the construction camp across the Kootenay River and dumping the waste on the site now proposed for the camp. The president of West Koo- tenay Power and Light Co. Ltd., William Gwyer, said he also is concerned about possible damage to the pool. The B.C Fish and Wildlife Branch also has expressed concern.

He said Alberla was being denied American sales worth about billion even ..tough vast amounts of surplus gas were known to exist in the Arctic. Dr. Hovland replied that the decision was based on a stand- ard formula which projected Canadian supply and demand for the next 30 years. Because of the importance of assuring .n adequate domestic supply, only "established reserves" were considered. The board's decision that Canada could face 1.1-trillion-cubic-feet deficit over the 30-year period would be reversed when proven dis- coveries surpassed that amount. MUST BE PIIOVEN Only gas finds which had been thoroughly surveyed and could produce economically were con- sidered "established." "There are no established re- serves in any of the frontier he said. Dr. Rowland agreed. "There is little doubt that we have very large prospects for further dis- coveries of gas." But it is dangerocs, and out- side the power of the board, to use "guesswork" in its deci- sions. He noted that Canadian con- sumption of natural gas had tri- pled during the last 10 years and could be expected to in- crease at even higher rates in the future. He assured Mr. Woolliams that pipeline capacity to the Eastern Canadian markets would be increased to keep pace with demand and that export permits would be issued to Al- berta producers as new discov- eries were proven. DENIES POLICY CHANGED Stan Schumacher liser) asked what had caused the board to "change ils mind" after authorizing large exports in 1970. Dr. Rowland denied pol i c y had changed and said there was no basis to speculation that the export applications were refused k> help the government pressure the U.S. in economic discussions.

The report of the board lad warned, he said, that gas were not limitless, though they were at the lime considered surplus to domestic needs. The situation had changed in 061 but probably would change again when new fields were jroven. FEAR LESS EXPLORATION William Skoreyko monton East) was worried the jeard action in denying the ex- lort requests would discourage 'urther gas exploration in Al- berta. 'Haven't we really closed the door on the U.S. for further ven- ,ures in He complained that two-thirds of Alberta's drilling rigs were idle and would remain so unless Jie energy board stimulated new discoveries by encouraging exports. "You can't expect private in- dustry to spend that kind of money on gas discovery and then put a lid on it saying you can't sell it until you find some more." He said Alberla wanted a guarantee that, if exports were to be limited, domestic con- sumption would absorb Ihe province's surplus.
