WEDNESDAY, APRIL 23. 1941 "" Kausas City Church Man To Address Rally ^ LITTLE ROCK. Ark. (UP)—"Sour Sas,' the latest natural resource discovered in Arkansas, if developed, may place this state in a position which will be the most advantageous in the entire south, as tar as cheap electrical power is concerned. This conclusion is the result of a survey made to prevent 'i .shortaye of power, Defense industries are requiring an enormous amount of electrical ^H'rgy, thus exerting a terrific drain on the surplus. An indications point to a great need of more power. Reports from the Arkansas Oil and Gas Commission tell of 10 prorated oil pools in the state, that have a combined reserve of about 723.000.000.CUO cubic feet of gas and 224,000,000 barrels of oil. However, only two of the pools have an output of pure gas. One, the McKamie field in Lafayette county, south of Stamps, has an estimated reserve of 500,000,000,000 cubic feet. New Field Premising: The other is thc Big Creek field in the Magnolia district, having a reserve of approximately 40,000,000.000 cubic feet. These are the only pools warranting much consideration at this time, but there is another field in the Magnolia section which is expected to be even more important than the Big "*" iwc Creek field. It Is the Dorcheat field. s - nrucc on the southwest side of Magnolia. ^' c '"" It's reserve of 32,000,000,000 cubic feet is expected by the commission to triple in the near future. Usage of "sour gas" as fuel for generating electrical energy is an important issue. According to reports, powei< requirements annually, for an Arkansas plant, using gas in steam power generation, cost $958,075. This is 8124,425 less than a similar plant in Alabama, using TVA power. Surplus Power Cited If power for private industry should be produced under a joint agreement with the Arkansas Power and Light Company to furnish standby power and absorb surplus power, it is estimated the private plant would realize a yearly saving of 3100,000. Dr. H. W. Blalbck. retiring member of the utilities commission, believes that a big problem in 'cozi- nectiou with the utilization of, "sour gas" is the danger of large i export. Blalock is of the opinion that the saving to cities would be but, a "few cents" if this happens, "On the other hand," he said, "if we use the gas here in Arkansas and pipe it into generating plants,' these .plants would be an "investment of millions of dollars. An investment on which we could collect reasonable taxes." JLYTHEVILLE, (ARKQ COURIER NEWS HARRISBURG, Pa.
