But he suggested that the starting date for the construc- tion of the Shell plant be dealyed by about a year to avoid a possible shortage of skilled construction labor. Shell is applying to the board for permission to start construction of its to cost more than in 1976. with completion schedul- ed early 1982. It would produce barrels of syn- thetic crude oil per day. The Syncrude plant is scheduled for completion in two stages in July 1977 and July 1978. Mr. Stratum's argument is that the same skilled labor would still be working for Syncrude at the time Shell starts building its plant. But Shell counsel C. R. Fetherston said his company does not think there will be a labor shortage doing with its schedule because by 1976 Syncrude would be in its final stages of construction and there would be little competi- tion for skilled labor. The board reserved its deci- sion on the Shell application. Shell is the third group plann- ing to develop the Athabasca oil sands. Great Canadian Oil Sands Ltd. has been operating the first plant in the area for several years.
