Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta American propane supply burns low By AL COLLETTI NEW YORK U.S. propane supplies are dwindl- ing and a months-old un- published United States government report says that it is questionable whether the in- dustry that now supplies more than 13 million American con- sumers will be able to do so a year from now. Platt's Oilgram News Ser- which reports daily on worldwide oil-and gas- industry discloses the existence of the prepared by the interior department last summer. Expected to be hardest hit by the impending shortage will be farm mobile home dwellers and a number of particularly in the rely upon the clean-burning derivitive of natural gas and crude oil for heating. The report pointed to a steady decline in available propane. The prepared by a group headed by L.

U.S. industry sources are concerned that next summer major refineries producing propane in the U.S. will sell their product to major in- dustry such as utilities and at higher prices than the dealers can pay for resale to non-priority users. Levels of propane may be reduced to the point where it is doubtful that the propane gas industry distribution setup can continue to operate beyond the fourth quarter of Platt's says.

His company would probably never catch up for two major reasons.

Rising coal prices darken Glace Bay By JEFF CARRUTHERS Special to The Herald OTTAWA Rising inter- national oil prices promise to push coal prices and produce more problems for the already-jinxed heavy water plant rebuilt by the federal government at Glace NS. J. L. president of Atomic Energy of Canada said in an interview that he understands the price of Cape Breton coal is going'up. whjch is refur- bishing the controversial Glace Bay heavy water plant for and which intends to start operating the plant in has only short- term contracts for the steam power to run the plant Mr. Gray said. The steam is produced by burning Cape Breton coal. With coal prices going the cost of producing heavy water at Glace Bay will inevitably have to go up. This in turn would make it increasingly difficult for the federal treasury to recover its renovations since profits on making heavy water would be squeezed. It-could also push up the cost of producing domestic nuclear power. And it could make it dif- if not for Nova Scotia to recover its original investment of plus on a heavy water plant which has yet to produce a single drop of heavy water. Canada desperately needs heavy water at whatever the to keep her nuclear pro- gram growing. Heavy water is used in Canadian nuclear to cool and control the nuclear reaction. It should be noted that the public ends up paying for in- creased costs for heavy water one way or the other. The country's only nuclear power CP A ir flies on with confidence VANCOUVER John president of CP said Friday the airline can move ahead with confidence to expand its services as a result of Transport Minister Jean Marchand's announce- ment of the government's new international air policy. Mr. Marchand told the Com- mons the new policy will pre- serve existing territory for the two national airlines and provide new areas. Mr. Gilmer said he hoped that action will be taken in connection with CP Air's long-standing requests for relaxation of the wasteful routing and capacity restric- tions within The transport minister said where possible the Canadian airline will be named before negotiations are opened on any new routes. Mr. Gilmer said CP Air's economic viability in South America was dependent on flying into Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo. WISH TO SERVE BRAZIL therefore hope for an early negotiation of a bilateral air agreement and designation of CP Air to serve he said. CP Air also called for action on negotiations for routes in Southeast Asia. have had applications before pur government for some time indicating our desire for designation of CP Air to serve Bangkok and Singapore. These points are natural extensions for the Canada-Orient route which we have operated since 1949 and they already contribute significantly to our traffic flow on that he said. The CP Air president said the new policy gives Air Canada nearly all of Africa as well as eight countries which are in areas previously allocated to CP Air. A seg- ment of north Africa is the only new area-assigned to CP Air and no territory has been taken from Air he said The eight countries Mr. Gil- mer referred to are Pakistan and China. Mr. Marchand said Air Can- ada would fly to China if per- mission for two Canadian air- lines is granted. At present CP Air has the right to operate in China. The transport minister said either or both airlines would be designated to fly to Brazil. Cominco hunts gems VANCOUVER Comincb Ltd. announced it has entered the diamond mining industry in Africa.

The'vital and scarce liquid alrady costs more-than a pound. Mr. Gray noted that the Glace Bay heavy water which has been plagued with problems since its was originally located in Cape Breton to take advantage of local which would be used to produce steam power for the plant. But no one foresaw a world energy shortage that now threatens to push the price up for all fossil coal in- cluded. In federal energy ex- perts also .didn't foresee the dramatic jumps in oil prices that have occurred in 'recent months back in the when they were evaluating a number of potential sites for Canada's fourth heavy water plant. Mr. Gray said in an inter- view that the summer federal site evaluation used oil and coal price data which are now out of date. The federal relying on that site chose Gentilly Que. as the site for the next heavy water federal sources confirmed here Thursday. But'sites in New Brunswick and British Colum- bia were not far behind. If a re-evaluation were done using more realistic price estimates for oil and coal. Gentilly would actually out Mr. Gray suggested. The only the Gentil- ly site has a nuclear power plant for supplying the steam power for the heavy water and only a nuclear power plant is relatively isolated from the escalating fossil fuel prices of late. gas stocks offer excitement By SANDRA INGALSBE TORONTO Worries over an energy shortage have taken their toll on stock markets and weakness still is to be ex- pected during the short Lawson and Co.
