Pipe has been stockpiled at Prudhoe Fairbanks and Valdez awaiting federal approval of the project. Alaska oil pipeline work four-year building job Alaska By current estimates it may be mid-1978 before the Trans- Alaska pipeline begins feeding oil to an energy-hungry United States. Oil companies which had previously said it would take three years to build the multi- billion dollar project now say it will take closer to four years. The pipeline will stretch 789 miles south from the oil-rich north slope fields.to the ice- free Port of Valdez where tankers ferry oil to the 48 con- tinental states south of Canada. The seven oil firms building the pipeline say they need 000 workers and up to billion. Some officials say a reasonable estimate of construction time is 36 to 42 with another four to six months to get the line fill- ed with north slope crude. Reasons for the tentative extension are intricate. Charles board chairman of Standard Oil Co. of told the Alsaka legislature last month that the planned daily production of barrels during pipeline warmup will be doubled That would mean a total of eight pumping stations to move the oil to tankers in the gulf of Alaska instead of the three envisaged originally. A dozen stations will be needed when the pipeline reaches a capacity of two million barrels daily. Presi- dent Nixon has said the Alaska pipeline's eventual output will equal 8Vz per cent of current U.S. petroleum use. Canada interested in Chianina cattle VAL DI Italy Mammoth white cat- tle command the pastoral countryside used since the time of Caesar as work animals and beef for Italian tables. Now landed aristocrats with hundreds of Chianinas and peasants with as few as three or four are increasingly regarding the animals as a lucrative export to a meat- hungry world. The beasts may form part of a future solution to rising beef costs in North America. Canadian Agriculture Minister Eugene Whelan and his Syd took time out from international farm discussions to journey 135 miles south of Rome last week to inspect the animals. The two donned plastic shoe covers and joined Italian nobleman Guccio Bichi- Ruspoli Forteguerri for a tramp through his centuries- old Chianina slapping and stroking the huge cattle with farm-boy delight. With them were two Cana- dian Leo Kennedy of and Jack Thompson of Por- tage la who are in Italy testing Chianinas for disease in anticipation of sales to Canadian farmers. The two checked 100 calves last week arid will test about 300 more during the next six weeks. They expect that half the beasts will react positive- ly to virulent Iioof-and-mouth disease and be banned for ex- port. But about 200 are expected to be shipped to Canada next a increase from the roughly 60 animals that have been imported since buyers entered the market four years ago. the world's largest cattle weighing between one and two tons and standing as high as six feet when are the major concern of Forteguerri on his 2. ISO-acre estate here. But they are just as impor- tant to countless small Italian inhn iwn Mrn B full year's salary by selling one animal for the going price of between and Canadian buyers are restricted to purchasing Chianinas under eight months since Italy requires a hooof-and-mouth vaccination after that age. Vaccinated animals have the same reaction to hoof-and- mouth tests as those with the disease itself. Chianinas shipped to Canada become part of a growing move towards the breeding of leaner cat- tle that ultimately can mean' cheaper meat for consumers. the gentle beasts pull farm implements for peasants here and grace the rolling hills and valleys of Forteguerri's 13th-century gaining between three and four pounds a day as they graze in the soft Mediterra- nean countryside. Environmental stipulations have forced building of about half the pipeline above ground. That method is more costly and time-consuming than burying but is con- sidered safe in icy soil. When oil was discovered on the north slope in cost es- timates for the pipeline pro- ject were million. The cost now is placed between billion and making it the most expensive private 'construction project ever. One of the first tasks will be construction of 360-mile road from the Yukon River north to Prudhoe roughly parallel to the pipeline ridor. The gravel road to be dug in the permanently frozen ground will cost oil companies million to million and will be the first major artery north of the Yukon. WILL CROSS RIVERS Three mountain ranges and 70 rivers have to be spanned. Workers will avoid river crossings when fish are spawning and the pipeline will be buried below river bottoms except for the where a bridge is planned. The pipeline also will have to be elevated over earth- quake in some areas on pilings 10 feet high. Engineers plan to use a special zig-zag design to enable the half-inch thick steel pipe to absorb shocks up to 8.5 on the Richter scale. The 1964 Good Friday which caused extensive property measured 8.4. The entire line will be wrapped in four inches of plastic insulation to keep the flowing at 145 degrees from congealing. It will also prevent the heat from thawing the ground. Seven six construction camps and a host of communications facilities will be built. Most work on the pipeline will run from March to mid- November. Temperatures plunging to 60 degrees below zero will preclude most activi- ty at other times. Contracts to be offered for new utility wheat WINNIPEG Grain producers in most regions of the prairies will be given the opportunity to grow Glenlea wheat under contract next year. The production which will be offered to producers through country elevator companies in 50-acre are part of the Canadian Wheat Board's market development program for the new utility wheat varieties. The production contracts are designed to enable. the wheat board launch the next stage of the program and begin marketing the new utili- ty wheat variety on a com- mercial basis. Applications and informa- tion aboul the new contracts will be available to producers at country elevators parly in The Canadian Wheat through the eight elevator will accept contract applications on a first-serve with each producer limited initially to one 50-acre contract. As many as grain producers could be involved in the program. Estimates in- dicate that there will be Glenlea will be quired to assign the number of acres under contract to the of utility wheat in their 1974-75 permit books. Each producer is assured of the delivery of up to 50 bushels for each acre under contract. Producers growing Glenlea will receive the initial price for utility wheat prevailing in the 1974-75 crop as well as any final payment available at the end of the vear. ;
