William Daniel, president of Shell Canada Ltd., said here. He told the Canadian Infor- mation Processing Society, a group of computer professionals, that United States companies are starting to divert their development efforts to other areas because of diminishing hopes they will ever be able to obtain oil ex- ports from Canada.

He said Canadians are pay- ing the lowest oil and natural gas prices in the world. This was encouraging wasteful use. "We have been living on an energy binge as we have for the last 25 years or so. The rest of the world is beginning to tighten down. We are not."
