Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, November IJ, TH1 UTHMtDCI HERALD 21 Telestat offers to supply all-weather communication for oil pipeline By JEFF CARRUTHERS FP Publications OTTAWA Telesat Canada has offered to supply an all- weather communications sys- tem for the length of the pro- posed Mackenzie Valley oil and gas pipeline, including seg- ments of the pipeline In the United States, using the just- launched Anik 1 commu- nications satellite. And this Is the major reason why Telesat Canada plans to ask the federal government "within a few weeks" to broaden Telsat's mandate and allow the corporation to provide communications services with its Anik network to points out- side of Canada, according to a senior Telesat official. "We would not want to be precluded from operating that sort of a communications sys- tem, as we are now limited by law, just because a small end MAN IN THE WEB OF GOOD FORTUNE-John Webster Brown surveys jars contain- Ing black widow spiders at his St. Pelersbu rg, Fla., home. Brown, 55, feared he might go out of business when his partner, a black widow spider named Mac died, but ha received some 500 replacements.

The cost of a "coherent and total communications system" for such a pipeline would be "millions of dollars a he said. Technical and cost details H-era given to the Northwest Study Group by Telesat, and the offer stands for whoever ends up building the pipeline, Mr. de Puyjalon suggested. At the same time, he con- firmed that the economics of making it possible for the Americans to use Anik, to tide the U.S. over until it can get its ti communications satellite system working, are probably more attractive and closer at hand than the Mackenzie Valley pipeline considerations. Mr. de Puyjalon confirmed that all 12 channels of Anik 2, which is lo be launched In April, mil be made available to U.S. users. And, should the demand be sufficient, Telesat will now even consider launching Anik 3 into orbit. Anik 3, also with 12 chan- nels on boaird, is supposed to be the ground back-up that would be launched should Anik 1 or 2 fail. With three satellites in orbit, the total capacity available commercially would be 34 tele- vision 10 channels on Anik 1, with 2 channels as back- up, for the Canadian system; and 24 channels on the other satellites, most likely for U.S. use, at least until a U.S. system is working. That could mean more than three tones the prof- its Telesat originally ejcpected from Anik. Telesat officials note that Ca- nadian customers of Anik will be given first priority and that Nothing runs like a Deere John Deere snowmobiles have the features to prove it.

But the Mackenzie Valley pipeline proposition and the prospects for sizeable U.S. use of Anik are not Die only reasons (or Tclesat wanting to broaden its mandate. Mr. de Puyjakm says that when the Anik system is work- Ing, Canada will have a known- how "unique in the world" end will have a "unique export on its hands." Telesat, he suggested, mighi be able to sell its experience to olher countries, such as Aus- tralia, China, South Africa, Era- lil and the U.S., with similar communications needs. Finally, Telesat is now dis- cussing with U.S. Interests the feasibility of future inter-eon- nections between Canadian and U.S. communications satellite systems, and the possibility of having Canadian and U.S. satel- lites backing esch other up, in ewe of technical failure. There will be some consider- able delay before the necessary changes, if approved, can be made by Parliament. One prob- lem Is that Parliament Is now not thought to meet again until early January. Since any changes In the Telesat Act must remain tabled in the Commote for at least 30 days, to allow comment and de- bate, then it would be February at the earliest before the changes could be approved. Telesat officials are thinking more of approval by March. But already, a bigger ques- tion Is looming on the horizen: slwuld Telsat be allowed In service customers outside of Canada? Telesat officials argue that, II the demand appears, It Is good corporate logic to meet it. They note that Canada Is the Only country that will have such a service for at least two raora years.
