Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 18, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta February 18, 1975 THE LETHBRIDOE HERALD 23 Over the side A load of logs slides from the deck of the Haida Monarch into a log pond at MacMillan Bloedel's Powell River, B.C., division. The new million self- propelled, self-dumping log carrier first of its kind in the world utilizes a system of ballast tanks and pumps to tilt log loads over the side. Price tag on Arctic gas pipeline near OTTAWA (CP) The newest price tag on a Western Arctic pipeline to bring Alaska and Mackenzie Delta natural gas to southern markets is about billion, the National Energy Board was told Monday. Vernon Horte, president of Canadian Arctic Gas Pipeline Ltd., which has applied for permission to build the mile line, said the cost of the main line now is about billion "in inflated dollars." New lines and extensions of others needed for the propos- ed project account for the rest. When Arctic Gas applied to the energy board in February, 1974 for permission to build the main line, it set a cost in excess of billion in 1974 dollars. Mr. Horte was giving evi- dence before the board Mon- day on the availability of natural gas in Canada and the Canadian needs in the future. Mr. Horte said Canada can expect a gas shortage over the next several years. Other forms of energy could not be developed fast enough to meet the increased demand. Gas resources in frontier areas such as the Arctic were needed. He also said "maximum economic incentives are urgently required" if both frontier and conventional gas and oil resources are to be harvested. Mr. Horte said he saw no disadvantage for Canada in that the majority of the com- panies owning Gas Arctic were non-Canadian. Car dealers seek rebate extension DETROIT (AP) Car deal- ers in the United States want the auto industry to extend cash rebates on new models into the spring because, they say, the program is helping sales. Car buyers can save to on some cars until the end of the month in what is believed to be the first full- scale clearance sale in in- dustry history. In an Associated Press sur- vey, U.S. dealers said the re- bates, scheduled to end Feb. 28, have provided the only bright note in an otherwise gloomy year of tumbling business. And there is fear that deliv- eries may drop sharply in March if Detroit doesn't con- tinue the popular rebate plans. "The rebates have caused a business said Dick Balch, a Chevrolet dealer in Seattle. "The rebate program is ex- he said. "I don't think there is any program as strong as the cash rebate. When the world is run by money, it's the strongest incentive." A Detroit Buick salesman said: "You could shoot a can- non in here before the rebates, and now we're moving pieces. The rebates are bringing peo- ple in, and when rebates end I don't see what will take their place." Dealer pressure for contin- uation of the rebates and dis- counts on a broader range of plans cover mostly small models cause extra problems for Detroit automakers. The companies say the sales slump has eaten into most of their profits and the rebates are costing them dearly. Some estimates put the cost through the end of the month at up to million, not including millions of dollars for advertising. In addition, while the rebates have increased the selling tempo since the record low set in early January, sales remain sharply depressed because of the economic recession. Sales in early February, when cars were sold, .were at a 13-year low. But the rebates, primarily on small cars, apparently did the. desired job of clearing the small cars from dealer lots. A 130-day supply of small cars Jan. 1 was cut to an 83- day supply Feb. 1, Automotive News reported. Despite the program, finan- cial analysts expect the four major companies in aggregate to wind up in the red this quarter, an industry first. Dealers say, however, Detroit has no other choice but to extend and expand rebates or cut prices. "We want to see people keep right on buying said Joe Mayo, a dealer in Wichita Falls, Tex. "And if it takes a price cut on the cars that are not moving, that's it." What the companies will do is unclear. Ford has indicated it has no plans to continue rebates beyond Feb. 28. American Motors has ex- pressed displeasure with the present plan, which it adopted only after the Big Three did so. GM and Chrysler, however, have left the door open a crack for extending rebates into March if sales remain de- pressed. Mr. Horte said the company was split into three groups: Canadian non-producing com- panies, American non- producing companies and a mix of Canadian and American producers. He said it would require a 62-per-cent majority among all three groups in decision making. Asked whether companies such as'Shell and Imperial had not sold their share of gas to U.S. markets, Mr. Horte replied that any agreements dealing with Delta gas are subject to approval of the National Energy Board. Given the situation today, Mr. Horte said he doubted whether any of the Delta gas would be considered as sur- plus to Canadian needs. DELIVERY DELAYED Mr. Horte said Gas Arctic had hoped to deliver Arctic Gas to the south by 1979 but added that failure to get necessary permission from the board now probably meant first deliveries would not be until at least 1980. Board chairman Marshall Crowe interrupted to note that Gas Arctic still was filing evi- dence and had, in fact, made a filing in late January. He said he hoped Mr. Horte was not suggesting the board should have given its permission for the line between the January filing and now. Mr. Horte said that was not his intention. He was asked whether per- mission to build an all-Canada line could not be granted sooner than permission for his line requiring approval of several U.S. bodies. He replied that an All- Canada line, as proposed by another group, was not economic. A Mackenzie line would re- quire carrying Alaska gas to make it an economic project. Offshore well joint Toy-making company receives new financing HAWTHORNE, Calif. (AP) Mattel, Inc., the financially troubled toy-making com- pany, says it has established new long-and short-term credit arrangements. The company also announc- ed Tuesday it has permanent- ly shut Mextel, a wholly own- ed subsidiary of the toys division, because of labor problems. The Mexican plant in Baja California had employed as many as full-time and seasonal workers In recent years. The company said mil- lion in debt formerly due this year and next has been res- tructed to provide payments through 1980. The banks also established a million revolving line of credit through April 30, the company said. The toy-maker has had de- clining sales recently and was further hurt by the disclosure that 1971 profits had been massively overstated. venture CALGARY (CP) Mobil Oil Canada Ltd. of Calgary and Gulf Oil Canada Ltd. of Toronto will jointly drill the first oil and gas exploratory well in the Bay of Fundy later this month. The well, Mobil Gulf Chinampas 0-37, located 35 miles southwest of Saint John, N.B., will be drilled to a depth of feet, a Mobil spokesman said today. Drilling, will be done by Mobil's semi-submersible rig, Sedco J, now operating northeast of Sable Island, he said. Sedco J is expected to move to the site later this month and will remain there for about two months. Full cost of the drilling operation will be paid by Gulf for a 75-per-cent interest in the well. Mobil, the permit- holder in the area, has a 25- per-cent interest. Cost of the well is not dis- closed but "it will certainly be Hi excess of Mobil said. The Mobil-Gulf team has been one of the more success- ful operators off the east coast and Sedco J now is the only drilling rig active in east coast offshore.
