Wednesday, September THE LETHBRIDGE HtRALD 21 All-Canadian pipeline in the works Looking chipper Prime Minister Trudeau looks chipper as he leaves his office in Ottawa followed by an aide Tuesday afternoon Mr Trudeau told a reporter he had "nothing to say" regarding the health of his 26- year-old wife Margaret, who entered hospital in Mon- treal this week France converts fleet CHERBOURG, France (Reuter) France launched its fourth nuclear submarine Tuesday as the navy started converting its nuclear sub- marine fleet to carry new multiple warhead missiles The launching of the subma- rine L Indomitable put France on a par with Britain in nu- clear-missile-armed nuclear submarines But Britain has a big edge over France with its eight small nuclear-powered attack submarines carrying conven- tional weapons for anti- submarine eight others to follow in the coming years CALGARY (CP) Alberta Gas Trunk Line Co Ltd (AGTL) of Calgary submitted to the national energy board in Ottawa Tuesday a proposal to build a 7-bilhon all- Canadian pipeline to transport Canadian Arctic natural gas to Canadian markets ACTL announced Monday its withdrawal from a consor- tium proposing a pipeline to transport Canadian Arctic and Alaskan gas to Canadian and United States markets The company said it now prefers to pursue an all- Canadian pipeline The all-Canadian pipeline, sometimes referred to as the maple leaf project, will be pursued through Foothills Pipeline Ltd a wholly-owned subsidiary of AGTL Foothills has a federal charter to operate a pipeline anywhere in Canada The proposed Foothills pipe- line includes some 800 miles of new 42-inch pipelines, at a cost of about billion, to connect the Mackenzie delta with the existing AGTL network in northern Alberta An AGTL spokesman said the company is inviting partners to the Foothills pro- ject So far, Westcoast Tran- smission Co Ltd has an- nounced its participation with AGTL in developing the Foothills pipeline Kelly H Gibson, chairman of Westcoast, has been elected chairman of the Foothills board, while S Robert Blair, president of AGTL, has been elected president of Foothills Construction of the Foothills pipeline, if approved, is expected to start by 1977 with completion scheduled for 1979 AGTL was an original spon- sor and operator of the gas Arctic systems study group which merged in 1972 with the northwest project study group to form the Gas Arctic Northwest Project Study Group The Canadian Arctic Gas Pipeline Ltd a sub- sidary formed by the group to build the proposed pipeline, had 28 member com- panies but the membership now stands at 25 after AGTL's withdrawal The economics of the CAGP pipeline assume that the line must carry both Alaskan gas from Prudhoe Bay and Cana- dian gas from the Mackenzie delta to both Canadian and U S markets ISSUES 'UNRESOLVED' AGTL said while access to Mackenzie delta gas is becom- ing relatively least before are still many key issues unresolved" with the CAGP proposal And the CAGP proposal re- quires the approval of the gov- ernments of the United States and the state of Alaska, while the Foothills project needs only Canadian government approval Commenting on AGTL's withdrawal, CAGP chairman William Wilder said higher transportation costs and deferral of urgently needed gas supplies would result from, a pipeline built to carry only Mackenzie delta gas "At a time of critical energy supplies and economic crisis, it would be undesirable for Canada and the United States to choose to construct two separate and more costly systems to transport natural gas from the western Arctic El Paso Pipelines Ltd is studying the feasibility of con- structing a trans-Alaska natural gas pipeline However, AGTL said even with the all-Canadian project, the proposed Foothills pipeline "can be expanded most co-operatively to serve Alaskan gas export and can also market to the US, any excess in Canadian supply THE WORLD ALMANAC BOOK OF FACTS 1974 Naw Larger SMktg for A For the student who needs everything All his facts in one place, that is!
