North*** Arlwma* TIMES, Thurs., June 13, 1974 VJkVBTTKVILLK, AMUNUU · 3 Aramco Loses Control Of Oil Production, Becomes Buyer NEW YORK (AP) -- International oil companies will still have a role to play in Saudi Arabia despite the government's takeover of 60 per cent of the Arabian-American oil company, the chairman of Mobil Oil says. "Mobil hopes to continue contributing to the economic development of Saudi Arabia both within Aramco and outside that company," Rawleigh Warner Jr. said following Monday's announcement that the Saudi ownership share will jump from 25 per cent to 60. Aramco said the switch in ownership control will be retroactive on Jan. 1 this year. The announcement made no men- tion of the amount of com- lure international oil companies Park Service Expands Campsite Reservation WASHINGTON (AP) -- Re- .erving a campsite at 21 different national parks will soon be as easy as reaching for your elephone. A National Park Service ipokesman said Wednesday hat last year's successful experiment with campsite reser- ations is being expanded to cover some 9.500 campsites. Beginning Saturday, the reservations will be accepted both y telephone and mail throug computerized system managed by Park Reservation Service Inc., a new corporation awarded a five-year contract. These reservations will be ef- ective at the parks starting July 1. Campers must pay a 52 fee to eserve a campsite and also must pay the standard National Parks campsite rental, ranging 'rom $1 to $4 a night. Unreserved campsites wil. still be assigned at the parks on ) first-come-first-served basis, the spokesman said.

The four are Mobil, Standard of California, Texaco and Exxon. Warner would not go beyond the Aramco announcement, saying that details of the interim agreement would be discussed with Saudi Arabia in July. In an interview just before the takeover announcement, Warner had said that changes in the relationship bewteen the American owners and Saudi Arabia would be "pretty fundamental." He said that in the fu- such as Mobil will have less control over production of foreign oil and increasingly become buyers and marketers of it. "Yes, we will be a buyer of oil," he said. "I recoganizc that in the f u t u r e we arc not going to m a k e as much profit per barrel of oil as we've made in the past. We're going to have to m a k e more money put of the m a r k e t i n g and refining and transporalion end of our business." He said that only the international oil companies have the expertise necessary to f i n d , produce and cause of this will continue market oil.
