Log Sawing Contest: The team of Mrs Procure and her daughter of 112-17 Street North By JEFF CARRUTHERS Herald Ottawa Bureau OTTAWA Under a draft international agreement on energy sharing, Canada would automatically cut back domestic oil use in the event of a significant world oil shor- tage, according to Ottawa sources. But because Canda is a net exporter of oil and has large amount of oil in reserve and storage, Canadians are not ex- pected to actually face oil cut- backs that are as severe as those facing other par- ticipating countries under the agreement. In fact, under the best pos- sible circumstances, Canada might be able to offset all of the compulsory cutback by tapping surplus domestic oil production out west and by dipping into storage tanks in the east, government experts have suggested. The agreement, reached in draft form last month in Brus- sels and scheduled to be sign- ed by participating countries late this year, calls for a com- pulsory seven percent reduc- tion in the domestic use in participating countries once major western oil consuming natins fail a 93 percent short- fall in world oil supplies. The plan, according to gov- ernment sources, is to have Canada join a dozen or more other major oil consumers, in- cluding Japan, the United States, Great Britain and most other European countries, in "sharing the oil shortage" equally. Thus, instead of a few west- ern countries being hit very hard by a world oil shortage, perhaps caused by another Arab boycott or sabotage of major oil facilities by terrorists, all the major western oil-consuming nations would absorb such a world oil shortage equally and automatically. Government sources ex- plained that under the agree- ment Canadians would nomi- nally be facing an across-the- board 7 percent cutback. But Canada, within the agreement, will be able to reduce the impact of the cut- back by using surplus domestic oil and-or large amounts of oil in storage tanks. Thus, with any luck, Canada might only face a two or three percent cutback, perhaps no cutback at all, while abiding by the agreement that forces other Western countries to ab- sorb a seven percent cutback. The reasons, according to government sources, is that Canada at present is a net ex- porter of oil.
