A cabinet decision on the pipeline decision that could determine thy fate of the proposed Dow Chemical of Canada Ltd. billion-pounds-a-year ethylene plant at Fort Sas- katchewan is expected possibly before April 1, Mr. Macdonald said yesterday outside the Commons. It is believed the NEB deci- sion favors construction of the pipeline and that cabinet in turn will approve the application, signalling the go- ahead for the Dow Petrochemical project in Alberta. The federal cabinet has to approve every major NEB pipeline application decision. As part of the on-going pric- In Centre Village Mall ,-W FAMOUS SALE TOWELS BATHMATS AND LID COVERS 3 DAYS ONLY!

Alberta regards the question of locating a major petrochemical complex in that province as "one of the priority questions" in the oil price negotiations, Mr. Macdonald said. "Alberta wants early starts on a number of possible he said. Mr. Macdonald said the freight rates issue will undoubtedly take more time to resolve than the issue of petrochemical and other industrial development in the west as part of the oil price trade-off discussions with Ottawa. Earlier this week, Dow re- vealed it would build more petrochemical plants than originally planned in Alberta, supposedly to have more of the ethylene produced in Alberta upgraded in that province .instead of having the upgrading taking place in the east. Included in the company's plans are a vinyl chloride monomer plant, an expanded chlorine-caustic soda plant at Fort Saskatchewan, and another worth of petrochemical derivative plant construction in Alberta.

Mr. Macdonald and govern- ment officials stressed yester- day that high U.S. tarrifs on the petrochemical derivatives used to make plastics have been the major disincentive to an expanded Canadian petrochemical industry to upgrade more natural gas and ethane instead of having Canada just export raw materials to the petrocehmical industry in the U.S. Government officias noted that recent international events with respect to.oil prices have made Canada considerably more attractive as a base for world-market petrochemical operations than a few years ago. The present advantages include a secure supply of oil and natu- ral gas, used to manufacture chemicals plastics; and stable and lower oil and gas prices. Energy Minister Macdonald and government energy officials said Tuesday that the federal government' really must ensure that the petrochemical complexes in Sarnia, Montreal and Alberta have opportunities to expand now that world demand for petrochemicals derived from oil and gas is increasing.
