John Tower, R-Tex. r urged the Senate Interior Tuesday lo grant oil and gas drillers greater tax incentives to stimulate oil and gas exploration in the United Stales. "Because of the national security and balance of payments implications of relying on foreign sources for at'least one- half of our petroleum needs, I find t h e present exploration trends intolerable and unaccep- lable,',' Tower said. He "urged the committee to approve his b i l l , w h i c h would give a seven, per cent investment lax credit for exploration and development of new domcslic reserves of oil and gas. · . · ' · · "In order ;for the industry' to meet the increasing demand for petroleum .in 1985 .without any proporlional increase in the dependence .on foreign supplies," he said, "the domestic petroleum industry 'would have to carry on a drilling effort more than Iwice as great as in the preceding 15 yeal's at a probable cost of $140 billion." ASKS PRICE HIKE Tower also stressed Ihe need for an immediate 1 increase in the price of oil and mitural gas. "The depressed price of oil and natural gas has lendcd to hinder the ability of domestic pelroleum exploration companies lo generate exploration funds Internally or to attract outside capital," he sid. In addition, Tower said, Ihe Federal Power .Commission lias kept natural gas prices "at unrealistic-ally low levels ... since 1954. If continued, he predicted, the nation could face a shortage of aboul 10 trillion cubic feel of gas per year by 1985. If llic FPC removed the controls "and if Ihc average price of natural gas doubled, it would still be significantly less than tho price recently for imported litiuified natural gns," Tower said. He said the reduction In Ihc oil depletion allowance from 27Vi per cent lo 22 per cent In 106!) "cost the industry approximately 1700 million per year which could "have been cm- ployed lo find at least one billion barrels of oil nnd 5 trillion cubic feet of natural gns," enough lo satisfy about 10 per ncnl of tho, nation's needs, Tha .TIMES U The ·ail Buy Far Your Advertlilng Dollar!
