Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 11, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta _ THE ItTMBRIDGE HERAID II, 1'72 Find gas again in Arctic region JEAN CHRETIEN' encouraging sigi: OllAWA tCl') Northern Development Minister Jean Chretien announced Tuesday that I'anarclic Oils Ltd. has found gas again on Melville Island in the Arctic, calling it a "very, very encouraging sign" cl a major gas field in the re- gion. He (old a quickly-called press conference that the latest well doubles the estimates of gas re- serves in the area, to five tril- lion cubic feel. It brings estimated reserves of the Arctic Islands to about 15 trillion cubic feet, closer to the 23 trillion needed to pay for a gas pipeline to Eastern Canada r a n a r c t i c is 45-per-cent owned by the government, with 19 oil companies owning other 55 per cent. Mr. Chretien said the new well is especially important be cause it is 11 miles from an other Panarctic well, indicatin. a really huge field." Another veil, six miles from the lirst, also hit gas. Two other fields have been ocated north of Melville Island, it Krisloffer Bay and King Christian. NO But Mr. Chretien could offer no prediction when total re- serves could he found to add up to the total needed to justify a 2.000-mile pipeline to Toronto or Montreal, and the eastern United States. Panarctic has been drilling in the N'orth for three years. It shares the latest well with Tenneco Oil and Minerals Ltd. Its other sites are also joint ventures with private oil con- sortiums. The new well is on the shore of Melville, but Mr. Chretien said no permits have yet beer granted lor offshore drilling be- cause of the threat of pollution. The minister said that despite he island discoveries, the first jas pipeline will deliver gas rom reserves in the Mackenzie Delta, tiirongh the Mackenzie Valley to the Prairies. A second pipeline would take island gas down either side of Hudson Bay to Eastern Can- ada. Surveyors have been plot- ting both sides of the hay seek- ing the most economical route, but no decision on the route lias been made. ICE PROBLEM The biggest problem with that line is crossing the ice- laden seas to the mainland. Aside from urban Canada and the United States, the min- ister said the second pipeline could also deliver fuel to ore sites in Quebec or the North> west Territories and northern Manitoba. That might permit milling in regions where energy now is too costly to be profit- able. Canada would export "only what we think is in surplus." He said no oil has been found beneath the gas on Melville Island. Panarctic lias already struck oil on Ellesnrerc Island, The petroleum industry, in eluding PanarcLic, is lo pursue its exploration this winter in program estimated lo cost million.
