Canada to take care in vast oil, gas drilling C A L G A R Y , · Canada (AP) -- Geologists;.. say Canada may have, six billion barrels of nif anrt'on trillion cubic feet-of natu ral gas under the .Beaufort ;Sea' and, Mackenzie' River Delta in the Arctic, where natives still make a l i v i n g hunting whales, seals, and polar bears or by trapping foxes! The Canadian government and the oil industry are seeking ways to get it out without disrupting the livelihood of t h e ' A r c t i c people or harming their environment. Late last year, Canada decided to start cutting exports of oil to the United States -- with a .complete cutoff scheduled by the 1980s -- because C a n a d i a n petroleum resources were running low. New oil finds in Canada could eventually help the United States, provided those finds give Canada a surplus of oil. But exploration of the Beaufort Sea area off the Yukon and western sect i o n of the Northwest Territories involves possible environmental impact from underwater blowouts or oil spills and their effects on animal life on which natives have lived for centuries. · , . ; · ' . . A statement by the Committee for Original People's Entitlement (COPE) says: · "All around the edge.of the Beaufort Sea. the native people are trapping foxes .or hunting white . whales and seals and catching fish that run in from the sea. "In the winter the people from Holman Island, Paulatuk, Sachs Harbor and Tuktoyaktuk travel far out onto the sea hunting polar bears. "Some of the permit blocks where drilling will be done first are right in the area where the people f no m Tuktoyaktuk hunt polar bears. Others lie close to the coast in areas · which are critical ;to seals, white .whales and waterfowl." IT IS MAINLY in response to the native people's concern that a one- year, $5 million environmental slucly piogiam is"* 1 under way in. the Beaufort Sea. U n d e r . an agreement signed last M a y , the industry is contributing $4 million to the rogram, consisting of 29 separate studies, covering aspects of the environment. Other studies are / o n - g o i n g federal projectsat a cost of $1 million. The federal government is maintaining control Questions stirred by water NEW YORK UP) -- "People are becoming more, and more concerned about the quality and safety of their drinking water," said Robert B. Hilbert, president of the American Water Works Assn. "Hardly a day goes by when there isn't some news item in the papers questioning the quality of our tap water." Noting that tap water was generally s a f e , though not always as high in quality as it might be,, he said, "In the past, people just took it for granted. "If it had odors or look-ed discolored, they didn't ask why. Now they are asking questions and it is , up to the water utility managers to respond. We encourage public concern. It will help t h e water industry in its efforts to upgrade its systems and improve water quality." The American W a t e r Works Assn. is a nonprofit, scientific and educational society dedicated to improving quality of community water supplies. Extra 'steer' leg PRAGUE. Czechoslovakia i.Ti - A five-legged calf was not only born, hut survived. At a state farm near Oimcr, Nova Bystricc, a calf was born with five legs and veterinarians expected it to die. H survived, howcvor, and at the age of three weeks weighed HO pounds. over the licensing of exploration permits and offshore drilling in the Beau- ,·1011- Sea - w i l l . not commence .until the studies are completed. Some oil companies ha ye already started' exploration drilling in. the Beaufort Sea from manmade islands but these operations are classified by the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs in Ottawa as land-based rather t h a n o f f s h o r e operatios which would require floating bases. However, the n a t i v e people say they do . not consider the program a sufficient safeguard. ; COPE,.which has asked that offshore Mrilling be delayed at least three years, said the one-year program is unlikely to find all the a'nswers, as the environment in the Beaufort Sea is "probably the most hazardous the oU industry has had to face anywhere in the world." Representing the-industry in the environmental study program-is the Arctic Petroleum Operators' Association. Eighteen oil companies holding permits in the Beaufort Sea are funding the program. ,,THE 29 studies in the program cover eight categories of r e s e a r c h ·-- seabirds and mammals, marine life, existing pollutants in the Beaufort Sea, p h y s i c a l oceanography, meteorology, environmental "geophysics, sea ice studies and oil cleanup. A.E. Pallister, president of Pallistar R e s o u r c e Management Ltd. of Calgary, consultants to the industry in the program, says,the native people are ·being kept informed of what the industry is doing in the Beaufort Sea. Meetings with the native people to explain the environmental p r o g r a m .were held in various Arctic communities in Octo. ber,,and more are being held this month, he said. "The industry's partici- . p a t i o n in the program indicates its willingness to protect the environment, and the federal government, which has the final, say, will see to it that no u n d u e e n v i r o n m e n t a l damage will be caused by exploration drilling." · The . program started ·last JUne and is scheduled to end this spring. If all goes as planned, offshore exploration drilling in the Beaufort Sea will commence in 1976. INDUSTRY sources say it is only a matter of time before' energy resources f r o m t h e M a c k e n z i e Delta-Beaufort Sea region are marketed. Imperial Oil Ltd. executives have predicted that crude oil production in the Mackenzie Delta-Beaufort Sea region may begin in 1983 -- provided tfiat up to two billion barrels oi'oil can be found by 1977. Five c o m p a n i e s ' a n - nounced recently t h a t they are studying the feasibility of a Mackenzie ·Delta pipeline. The environment is only one of the problems faced by the, industry ,to bring Beaufort Sea oil and gas to market. Economic viability, the political cli- m a t e , technical difficulties and native rights'and land claims must also be considered. The. Geological Surwy' of Canada has estimated i the amount of undiseover-,, cd oil in Canada at'"3j4;-". 'billion barrels -- mo-re than five times as much : , as has already beer found. ' K;^---;,;";·;' · · By far the largest: . potential -- some 80. billion barrels -- lies in the frontier areas, primarily the Arctic and Atlantic basins, and of this, about · 63 billion barrels lies offshore, in places such 'as the Beaufort Sea, the Geological Survey says.
