Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - December 16, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta IS THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD Wednesday December 16, T970 DASH FOR LIFE Firemen run for their lives as a burning building collapses In Buffalo. The structure had burst into flames after being rocked by an explosion of cause. The blaze spread to two adjoining build- ings bur no one was injured, rhe firemen rushing to safe- ty just in time. iern oil action accelerates as maximum exports are allowed By WALTER KREVENCIIUK Canadian Press Siaff Writer The petroleum industry swept north and east from Al- berta in 1970, confident in the potential for large oil and nat- ural gas discoveries in the Northwest Territories, t h e Arctic islands and the Atlantic Offshore. Oil was found in the Mack- enzie River delta of the N.W.T. and natural gas on Melville and King Christian Islands in the Arctic. Additionally, traces of oil and gas in the Atlantic off Canada's East Coast kept hopes alive for large discover- ies in that area. The northern finds were not commercial, but served to ac- celerate an exploration inva- sion that Ken Hall, operations manager for Trans Mountain Oil Pipe Line Co., said will see S60Q million spent in the North during the nest four years. CLOUDS ON HORIZON However, there were clouds on the horizon for the year ahead as the federal govern- ment considered legislation that A. R. Nielsen, chairman of the Canadian Petroleum Association, said could have a major adverse effect on fu- ture industry activity. He said the northern bubble could burst if the federal gov- ernment takes an "unreasona- ble" approach in establishing foreign-ownership guidelines, reviewing land regulations and on tax reform. One load was lifted from the industry's shoulders when an agreement was reached in Ot- tawa Nov. 24 which will allow Canada to export oil to the United States to its full capac- ity in 1971. In 1970, a quota had limited exports of Canadian crude into the U.S. east of the Kocky Mountains to between and barrels a day. Spokesmen said the open export market in 1971 will be a major asset to Canadian in- dependent companies because it will attract more foreign capital. Despite the export ceiling, Of Adult High School Lefhbridge Community College School of Continuing Education WINTER SEMESTER: Preparatory and Matriculation classes begin Monday, January 11 or Tuesday, January 12, 1970 and will end Wednesday, April 28 or Thursday, April 29, 1971.

Orcunaiion follov h to roaislor In thu course rss Ncims No Alberta oilfields set a produc- tion record in November- pumping out barrels a day of conventional crude oil, psntanes, heavy crude and synthetic crude. The output surpassed last February's previous high by some 3.000 barrels a day. DEMAND BODES WELL In short, Mr. Nielsen said, the great energy demand bodes well for the industry, "as long as the governments take a reasonable approach." The federal government is expected to make its position known early in 1971. Mr. Nielsen said Ottawa Is taking a realistic approach to- ward environmental problems in the North. Newly established pipeline guidelines and rales on physi- cal actions are "going Io cost us money, but it's something we can live with and won't prohibit us from staying in the1 North." The industry needs ex- tremely large discoveries to make its whole northern ac- tivity economic, and Mr. Niel- sen said he can see the pace of exploration "slowing down within a couple of years" un- less there is a major discov- ery. This has been the case in Alberta, where there hasn't been a major oil discovery for more than five years. As a re- sult, provincial government revenue from sales of Crown indicator of ex- ploration only million in the first eight months of 1970. RETURNS FAR BELOW Final returns for the year expected to be the lowest since the province started its honeymoon with the petro- leum industry in 1947 and far below the million col- lected in 1969. The public outcry against pollution zeroed in on the pe- troleum industry in 1970, fol- lowing oil spills on the Atlan- tic and into rivers and lakes in northern Alberta. Mr. Nielsen said the indus- try has been guilty of sorno "sloppy but considering the magnitude and complexity of its opera- tions has done a good job oa pollution control. With new sources of oil still" in hiding, Alberta Mines Min- ister Russell Patrick said the only thing that has kept explo- ration humming has been the search lor natural gas. ALBERTA NOT HAPPY And Alberta, which produces 83 per cent of Can- ada's natural gas, is not happy with the federal gov- ernment's approach to gas ex- ports to (Ire U.S. In October, OtUwa ap- proved the biggest single in- crease in exports to tire U.S. .since pipeline exports began in the late 1950s, but reduced, the amnunt sought by fivo cornjMrucs to 6.3 from tril- lion cubic feel. Mr. Patrick said tho rediic- lion was a mistake. There al- ready was a serious slump in oil and gas exploration in Western Canada and closing export outlets uxniltl "really aggravate" flic situation.
