Venezuelan Conference Due to Open Country's Oil Output Brings Recognition Washington, Sept. 8 (U.R). The International Petroleum conference which -meets at Caracas tomorrow will bring new recognition to Vene zuela as the first oil exporting and second oil producing country of the world. Officials here pointed out that Venezuelan petroleum production, now around 1,700,000 barrels daily, weighs heavily in the world equation of oil supply and demand, and Ts a vital factor in the security of all free nations. The conference at Caracas, according to official sources, will relate primarily to the history, development, and achievements of the Venezuelan industry. Twenty-seven governments and several hundred industrial representatives were invited to attend." The United States official delega tion will consist of Secretary of the Interior Oscar Chapman, Bruce K. Brown, deputy petroleum administrator for defense, and C. Strib-ling Snodgrass, assistant ' deputy petroleum administrator for defense. The United Press learned offi cially that the United States delegation does not plan to conduct negotiations while in Caracas. But the visit occurs shortly before hear ings of the United States tariff com mission and Interdepartmental pom- mittee on trade agreements which may lead to modification of United States commercial policies affect ing the petroleum commerce of this country. The conference In Caracas will afford the widest opportunity for exchange of technical information and will help to guide the opinion of participants concerning the Iran crisis and ita implications to West em Hemisphere countries. Venezuelan production alone Is now about equal to tne entire Middle Eastern oil production, and the officials responsible for U. S. defense would be glad to see an expansion of production there as well as In other Latin American producing areas. Venezuelan crude petroleum production in 1950 was 546,783,-000 barrels, compared with. 657,374,000 In the entire Middle East. The latter figure included 242,475,000 barrels In Iran. . The United States is importing petroleum or products at a rate of about 900,000 barrels daily, with Venezuela by far the most important supplier. ' ". Even before the defense program created a heavy new demand, the United States had moved from its former position as a net" exporter (exporta exceeding imports) of petroleum and products to that of a net importer, with total Imports exceeding exports. " Thus a atrateglcal interest ' has reinforced the already great . reciprocal interests of commerce, industry, and Investment in the welfare of Venezuelan industry. Experts now believe that the crude petroleum production of Iran, If long interrupted, will be approximately compensated by larger production in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and possibly some other Middle Eastern sources. But the great optimism which prevailed during the last decade concerning Middle Eastern total expansion has been tempered by current political and strategical situations in that area. Interest in Latin American and Far Eastern oil reserves Is therefore reactivated. Officials here would be pleased if the Caracas conference should encourage a more active development policy In other Latin American republics as well as Venezuela. They point out that only Venezuela, Colombia, Peru and Mexico in that area are now significant as international exporters of petroleum. Some of the republics are spenvl- ing huge sums for importation of petroleum and coal without having exnausi-a me pofioiuues oi ais- covering and developing domestic oil field.

Positive Steps to Inert the amount of tubular, goods available to oil and natural gas drillers and to correct some Inequities which daylcpsd in tne aistriDution: or tnesei goods are expected ; to result from a series of neetings held this past week? by the Pe troleum Administration for Defense. ?'.-V :: f 'U:;V; ,.f .'. , " - -" ( rrom at. long-range tand-polnt, probably the moat Important of tha conferencea waa that conducted with executives of the major ateel companies by lYank A. Watta, director f the 1AD division on materials. Watta aaked tha steel companies to atep up aa rapidly a poaslble their production of tubular food and casing pipe, and waa given ourance that the Industry would do what it can under present restrictions to increase this produc tion as aoon aa possible. PAD offi cials would like to authorise enough tubular goods in i.1952 to permit the drllllnsT of a auostanuauy in creased number of oil and natural gas wells, but cay that thla is im- poaslble until tne axeei companies boost their over-all output of tubular goods. No official figure has been fixed by PAD aa yet on the number of new weua it wouia iiko w drilled in the continental United Spates next year, but some officials have expressed, the hope that the number could do raised to ou.uuu. It is estimated that the total this year will almost reach the original goal or 43,zuu Watta also urged the ateel companies to produce from expanded facilities more pip of 5-lnch di ameter. He pointed out that many drillers todav are using aeven-lnch pipe where 5-inch pipe would be satisfactory. This meana a loss of footage in favor of tonnage. : On the more immediate mate-. , rials front, agreement was reached between PAD official . and the representatives of 14 oil and gas associations, called.: to Washington for a conference by Deputy Petroleum Administrator Bruce Brown, for a revision of standards for the allocation of oil country tubular goods. " The two-day meeting was held behind closed doors, but both PAD officials and association representa tives reported the meeting as "har monious" and almost certain to re sult in benefits to oil and gas drillers and producers. Just what changes will be made in the present allocation program remained uncertain, Put officials definitely promised to adopt some, if not all, of the recommendations submitted by the association of f 1 cials It is anticipated that some change will hi made in the bas period upon which drillers get them- tubu lar allocations..' It Is also expected that PAD will allow In the future drillers Who drill 11 wells or less a year to get their tubular goods from the 13 field warehouses which were aet up originally by the PAD Just to aupply atrictly wildcat drill er J. Ed Warren, of Midland, ? resident of the Independent etroleum Association of America, said that he felt the meeting had been productive and that small independent produc-era especially will benefit by being able to get more and quicker tubular good in th future. The third of the eerie of meet ings was held with officials of the oil field supply companlea which have been operating the 13 field warehouse from which 5 per cent of the oil Industry's steel allotment ha been directly distributed in the shape of tubular goods, casing pipe, and other materials. Th officials were told that PAD will probably double the amount of materials located at each of the supply base, or a total of 10 per cent of the overall aupply. s At the same time the possibility of Increasing the number of these field supply bases was discussed (although no definite decision was reached on thia question), k was reported.

Deci sion on efforts to claim all-rich submerged land with SO-year-old land acrlp may be delayed until coagres adjourns, th .interior department said today. ;. , Th scrip was issued by tha government for national aervice principally to veterans of th nation' early wan. It gave each soldier the right to claim a tract of public land. . Mastin L. Whit, Interior depart ment solicitor, told a reporter to day that th department probably will await congressional action an pending legislation before deciding on th claim. The legislation would give title to the submerged oil lands to the coastal states. This would remove it from th category of federally owned land v the type that may be claimed -fc the scrip. Largest holder of th : scrip Is E. L. Cord, Los Angeles, former automobile manufacturer, who claims 1,932 acres of submerged land adjoining production oil wells off the Louisiana coast. His claims nave Deen penaing since xto. 1951. . . Cord has told reporters h put 31,000,000 into hi scrip project, and estimated that th acreage ha seeks contains $10,000,000 in recoverable oil. Other source have es timated th productive capacity of the acreage at more than 8100,- 000,000.
