LETHBRIDGE Sign contract for natural gas CALGARY (CP) Consoli- dated Natural Gas Ltd. of Cal- gary has announced a contract with TransCanada Pipelines Ltd. of Toronto for the sale of about three trillion cubic feet of natural gas reserves in Al- berta. Consolidated, an affiliate of Northern Natural Gas Co. of Omaha, Neb., and TransCan- acia, made the announcement in a weekend news release. The reserves are part of the gas consolidated acquired during the last three years for export to Northern's markets in the U.S. of this amount, 1.46 trillion cu- bic feet had been dedicated to TransCanada under a previous agreement.

There no reason to believe that hese will not be exploited." lEVELOP TECHNIQUES The paper said that enough manganese, copper, nickel, and :her metals lie in nodules on ocean floor to satisfy resent needs for a long time, .nd the techniques for mining hem are being developed. "The environmental disturb- ,nces associated with such un- Icrscas mining is likely to be f no small order, unless provi- ion is made before the prob- cm begins, for proper protec- "on.
