Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - May 27, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Solurdoy, May 37, 1972 THE IETHBRIDGE HCRAIO 21 Socreds closed door on oil dollars-Dickie By GREG McINTYIlE Herald Legislature Bureau EDMONTON The provin- cial government would h a v o liked to raise the to mil- lion "fair and reasonable re- turn" from the oil industry in 1873 through an increase in roy- alties, but the former Social Credit government closed that door by putting a ceiling on royalties in a long-term agree- ment with the industry, mines and minerals minister Bill Dickie said here. At a news conference follow- ing thcec days of hearings into the oil revenue issue, Mr.Dickie said increasing royalties would have been more desirable than the tax on reserves in the ground, the government has pr posed as an alternative. Judging by opposition com- ments since the Conservatives came lo office last fall, Mr. Dickie said even former Social Credit cabinet ministers such Top mem replaced at brewery TORONTO (CP) The presi- dent of Canadian Breweries Ltd. was replaced Friday. The com- pany declined to say why. Wilmat Tennyson, 45, pre- viously president of Rothmans of Pall Mall Canada Ltd., was named to the position. Paul Erasmus, 40, held the job from August, 19GO. John H. Devlin, chairman of Hothmans and Canadian Brew- eries, made the announcement in a statement following a meet- ing of the boards of both compa- nies. Robert H. Hawkes, vice-presi- dent and general counsel of Rothmans, was named to re- place Mr. Tennyson as presi- dent of Rothmans. Rothmans owns slightly more than half the shares of Cana- dian Breweries. ROYAL BANK APPOINTMENT as Jim Henderson were appar- ently not aware that limits had been written into oil agree- ments. Despite Its second best sta- ture, Mr. Dickie said his gov- ernment will do its best to make the tax plan as fair as possible. The absence of alternative suggestions during the hearings leaves the government likely to have the tax in effect by Jan. 1'of next year. A bill the Mineral Taxa- tion Act 1972 has been in- Middle East oil is answer to future PARIS (Reuter) The Weil could be 20 million barrels of oil a day short o! its requirements by 1980, with the Middle East the main source to cover the deficit, John Irwin, U.S. under- secretary of state said Friday. Irwin was speaking on the final day of a three-day organi- zation for Economic Cc-opera- tion and Development minis- terial council meeting in sup- port of a proposal by Emil van Lennep, OECD secretary-gen- eral for a study of the world's energy resources. He said the OECD's 25 mem- ber countries may need 26 mil- lion more barrels a day by 1980 increase almost equal to the combined present consump- tion of the U.S. and the Euro- pean OECD countries. "Most of this oil can come from only one source, the Mid- dle Invin said. "Some estimates put the 1980 shortfall at close to 20 million barrels a day." He said these estimates took into account an expected two million ban-els production a day from the Alaskan North Slope fields, plus a further three mil- lion barrels a day from the North Sea. Irwin said although U.S. im- ports from the Middle East are neglibable today, unless effec- tive measures are taken, they could entail seven million or more barrels a day by the end of the decade. "Thus what is regarded today by many OECD members as an uncomfortable degree of de- pendence on the Middle East will by 1980 be far he said. W. R.

Phone 327-2359 for Appointment troduced In (lie legislature and is expected to be passed at the spring session so that the oil industry can be informed of government plans by the prom- ised deadline of July 30. Another bill the Mines and Minerals Amendment Act 1972 removing the ceilings on roy- alties in future leases, is also expected to be law by the end of tho year. The proposed tax on oil re- serves has been criticised as an "administrative nightmare" and as posing a hardship on small companies that tend to be more heavily involved in explor- ation for new wells than big firms. Mr. Dickie said with informa- tion gathered during the hear- ings, the plan will be modified to minimize adverse effects. "Now we can look at those areas and take a look at our plans to see if there is a detri- mental effect. If there is, wo can perhaps remedy that by further amendments or regula- tions our desire is not in any way to advrersely effect the little he said. Mr. Dickie said the million or more to he obtained through the proposed tax in 1973 is a fair and reasonable return on crown oil reserves in the ground and not money that would other- wise have had to be raised through a sales tax. Some oil companies during the hearings suggested if the government needed the million, it should impose a sales tax. Alberta is currently the only Canadian province without a general retail sales tax. Asked to speculate what the Socreds would have done this year as oil revenues are up for a 10-year review, the minister predicted they would have left things pretty well alone rais- ing less revenue. He said the Conservatives de- cision to hold public hearings on the question was a first in Alberta and the Socreds would likely have reviewed the issue behind closed doors as they did in 1962 and simply waited until leases with the oil companies expired before raising royalties.
