Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 25, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta B.C. oilfields outlook 'good9 CJURLIE B.C. The outlook in British Columbia's oilfields is good in spite of predictions a year ago that disaster would follow the provincial government's ITSE firms 8 losing money TORONTO A brief to the Ontario Securities Com- mission by the Toronto Stock Exchange says member firms have been losing money since April at an expected annual rate of more than million. The exchange based on a survey of its 91 member is in support of an application to allow a tem- porary surcharge of 17.5 per cent to be added to stockbroker commissions for transactions of more than The commission has scheduled a public hearing on the application for Aug. 7. The loss rate is based on fig- ures for the three months end- ed June 30 when member firms capital in the amount of the ex- change said. The loss represents 7.2 per cent of the capital of the in- dustry Current figures show no sign of improvement in the second fiscal quarter which began this an ex- change spokesman said.

A. WHITE. Secretary July 10 1974 Winnipeg Manitoba gas sale brings gov't .5 million EDMONTON The Alberta government has received in the sale of 14 petroleum and natural gas drilling reservations. BP Oil and Gas Ltd. and Sulpetro Petroleums Ltd. teamed to pay for 960 acres west of the Hamelin field in the Blueberry moun- tain 60 miles northwest of Grande Prairie. Pacific Petroleums Ltd. paid the second highest for acres east of the Marten Hills field in north- central 130 miles north of Edmonton.

SEE KLEEN Limited 1271 2ND AVENUE LETHBRIDGE 328-6073 Lethbridge Calgary Red Deer Edmonton Vernon Dawson Creek Grande Prairie The Herald Business Stock prices higher at mid-session doubling of petroleum royalties. The fields stretch 400 miles along the northern B.C.- Alberta border. British Columbia's first produced in this was reached at depths of about 000 feet at costs of about 000 a well. South of Dawson the drills now are preparing to go feet down and the com- panies are looking at costs in the million range. They are willing to spend such amounts in a bid to find new resources which they can then tie up for the future. Industry observers say there is considerable significance in the re- appearance in B.C. of some of the major oil companies. Phillips Petroleum a subsidiary of Oklahoma-based Phillips Petroleum and Imperial Oil have both been putting money in the ground in this area after staying out of the province for 10 years. Most discoveries in B.C. have been natural most of which goes for export. The province produces only about one-sixth of its own oil needs but many believe there are large fields yet to be found as the drills go deeper and deeper. Mayor Peter Frankiw of Fort St. a contractor servicing the oil was one who predicted heavy un- employement would follow the increase in royalties. He is happy he was wrong. Timber harvest okayed EDMONTON The provincial government an- nounced today that Spray Lakes Sawmills Ltd. of has been issued a permit harvest timber in the Marmot Creek experimental watershed in the Kananaskis 70 miles southwest of Calgary. The operation will be con- ducted as part of an experi- ment to determine the effects of timber removal on the timing and quality of streamflow from the 3.2- square-mile watershed research area.
