By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Northern Affairs Minister Jean Chretien announced Wednesday that offshore drilling in the Beaufort Sea will not be allowed to start before the summer of 1976. This will allow at least two full years of environmental studies to be completed by industry and government. And the oil industry has agreed to fund up to million of the "priority" environmental studies which must be done during this two- period before any actual drilling can begin, federal government and industry officials confirmed in Ottawa and Calgary yesterday. This is twice the amount industry announced a few weeks ago. NO DECISION But no decision has yet been taken by the federal government on whether oil companies with special drilling committments on Beaufort Sea acreage will be granted extensions to the commitments which expire in 1975, federal officials in the northern affairs department said yesterday. It is expected the government will accept "firm commitments" to undertake drilling programs soon after Ottawa gives the official green light in 1976 as sufficient for the affected oil companies to fulfil the Beaufort Sea oil acreage development commitments, according to A. B. Yates, director of the northern policy and program planning branch. Northern Affairs Minister Chretien also announced that two of the Beaufort Sea inter- ests, Dome Petroleum Ltd. of Calgary and Hunt International Petroleum of Calgary, have been authorized to start construction of drilling systems to be used in the Beaufort Sea. This pushes the companies a large step closer to federal permission to start drilling. Mr Chretien also said that the two companies have agreed to design and construct the greater part of the drilling systems in Canada. The dnlfing rigs are expected to be ready for operation in mid- 1976. According to industry and government estimates, both groups will spend about million each for construction of the drilling rigs (most likely floating rigs) and another million each for shore installations and support vessels. The Beaufort Sea Task Force group, a consortium holding special "bonus" block acreage in the Beaufort Sea, has received to date only approval in principle to start studies on drilling. It has not received the second-stage go- ahead from Ottawa to start construction of a drilling rig. A third-stage approval, a formal drilling authorization, is required before any drilling will be permitted in the Beaufort Sea area north of the mouth of the Mackenzie River. The federal cabinet has ruled that federal environmental studies must be undertaken before drilling can start, and Mr. Chretien's announcement yesterday merely underlines this policy. Winter club roof caves in REGINA (CP) It will cost thousands of dollars to 'repair the Wascana Winter Club following the collapse of part of its skating rink roof, club president Don Kramer said Wednesday. The club does not have sufficient funds to make the repairs and needs the financial help of the province or the city. Mr. Kramer added. The roof section collapsed Tuesday, apparently under the pressure of heavy snow. Gabrielle Tarmer, 21, formerly of YellowJcnife, N.W.T, was injured during the incident. SPEAKER TO TRAVEL OTTAWA
