D. LIVINGSTONE panelist A. W. FARMILLO panelist KEN F. HEDDON ffWe Welcome.. DELEGATES to the Home Province of Tar Sands Pioneers! Excerpts from a recent speech made by GCOS President, Ken Hedden to the Calgary Chamber of Commerce. His remarks, entitled "Pioneering Energy outlined ten years of progress in developing Tar Sands tech- nology and made the following specific references to the benefits accruing to the people of Alborta and the community of Fort McMurray. "WE HAVE BLAZED THE TRAIL SPENT IN CANADA DURING CONSTRUCTION "During the construction period from 1964 to 1967, our plant construction' were million. Of this amount, every dollar possible was spent in Canada million just over 85 per cent of the total. OVER SPENT IN ALBERTA IN 1971 "Presently GCOS has a direct annual payroll in excess of 59 million. Additionally, in 1971.. we paid out S49 million for equipment, materials and servces. Nearly 82 per cent (over million) was spent in Canada and a substantial portion of that amount in Alberta. We would like to see our Canadian purchases increase and we continue to search out with success every possible source of supply in Canada that is equipped to meet our rteeds." EMPLOYEES EARN THAN MILLIO N ANNUALLY "Some of our expenditures are made to firm- ing regular contract work a" the site. Count- ing employees of these firms, the work force total s rnen and women who receive a payroll, directly and indirectly, in excess of S21 million eoch yeor." TAXES AND ROYALTIES TOTAL S3.5 MILLION "Our contribution to government in Alberta also is substanhol. Even with the partial remission royalties granted by the province, GCOS contributed nearly S2 million in royalty payments to the Provincial Government in 1971. Municipal taxes accounted for an additional million. PIONEERING IS EXPENSIVE "GCOS of course will welcome the arrival of future oil sand developers and we stand prepared to co-operate with them in every possible way including the shoring of technology through licensing arrangements. Hopefully, those firms which folloow us will find life o somewhat easier proposition. We have blazed a trail by building bridges, roads and pipelines; helping in the development of Fort McMurray and, of particular importance, nurturing and accumulating a body of knowledge which is second to none in the industry. But, pioneering costs money and pioneering in the oil sands can be especially expensive. To the end of 1971, GCOS had accumulated a deficit in excess of million."
