Siguiente ta e traduccion di e articulo cual a
sali na ingles den nos Esso News anterior y
cual a ser tumr for di e revista "The Lamp" di

Scarsedad di Energia Ta Algo Real ?

Hopi di boso cu ta lesa e articulo aki sin duda a ser afecta pa
scarsedad di gasoline, azeta calentador pa cas of algun otro produc-
to acceptA como regular. Mi ta sigur cu boso tin preguntas tooan-
te e actual situation di energia y mi ta desea di contest e pre-
guntanan cu mas frequentemente ta ser puntra na nos na Exxon.
Probablemente e promer cos cu be ta desea di sabi ta cuanto
tempo e actual scarsedad lo dura y desafortunadamente esaki ta
impossible pa contest cu cualkier grade di certeza. Masque cu e
embargo di azeta terminal, Io dura como 60 dia pa haya crudo
entregd na e pais aki y refinA den productonan pa clientenan.
Pesey, solamente mi por bisa cu nos ta pasando door di un pe-
riodo dificil.
Ademas, e fin di e conflict na Medio Oriente lo no nifica e fin
di scarsedad di energia pa Estados Unidos of pa e rest di mundo.
E problema tabata surgiendo promer cu e Guerra na Medio Oriente
y lo continue pa hopi anja venidero, no cu e mes intensidad pero
como un limitacion persistent y serio ariba nos libertad di accion.
No tin ningun duda den mi mente cu nos Americanonan master
desaroya costumbernan nobo di conservation di energia y mi ta sos-
pecha cu den algun forma estilonan di bida por ser cambia perma-
nentemente. Pero mi ta desea di enfatiza esaki : e problema ta
manehable. E solution ta keda den desaroyo na gran escala di nos
mes fuentenan di azeta y gas, den descubrimento di medionan pa uti-
liza nos reserves grand di carbon y den desaroyo di fuentenan
nobo di energia. Mi ta convenci cu esaki por y lo ser haci. Pero,
esaki lo tuma tempo y lo master di gran cantidad di placa.

Ta Berdad

Ta sorpresante pa mi cu, apesar di tur loque a ser bisa ariba e
topic aki, algun hende ainda ta puntra : Scarsedad di energia ta
algo real ? Aparentemente algun hende ta quere cu e ta solamen-
te un gran farse door di companianan petrolero, intenciona pa hi-
sa e prijsnan mas halto y pa logra p6liza mas complaciente di go-
bierno. Otronan ta dispuesto pa accept e scarsedad como rea-
lidad, pero nan ta quere cu e ta existi solamente pa motibo di in-
aptitud y mal maneho pa parti di industrial di energia y gobierno.
Ta berdad cu nos anticipacion di eventonan di future no tabata
perfect. Nos den e industrial a realize cu Estados Unidos tabata
birando mas y mas dependiente ariba azeta di Medio Oriente y cu
esfuerzonan mayor tabata necesario pa desaroya fuentenan domes-
tico. Sinembargo, nos no por a pronostica e Guerra di Medio
Oriented y e suministro reduci di petroleo Arabe cu lo sigui como
consequencia di esey.
E problema cred pa reduccion di e suministro aki lo no a apare-
ce asina grand si industrial anteriormente a ser permit pa entama
varies proyectonan mayor cual pa un motibo of otro a keda strobe.
Petroleo a ser haya na Alaska y construction di un tuberia tabata
planeA. Si esaki a ser traha manera proyecta originalmente, anto
como 2 million baril di azeta adicional awor Io ta yegando na e
refinerianan di Merca. Tambe nos a haya azeta den e Canal di
Santa Barbara, pero obstaculonan ambiental a retard production.
Tabatin, podiser, un fayo general pa anticipa e impact di e mo-
vemento ambiental ariba tur forma di energia. Ciertamente nin-
gun hende a mira padilanti e consequencianan di e Ley di p6liza
Nacional Ambiental di 1969 na Merca. Por ehempel, equiponan
pa control di emision mandatorio ariba auto tabatin un reduction
significant ariba kilometraje di gasoline. Na e parti di suministro
di energia, un resultado particularmente important di e Ley taba-
ta pa haci carbon menos acceptable pa consume. Cinco anja pa-
sA nos a pronostica un aumento promedio di carbon di como cua-
tro porciento pa anja. En realidad, e aumento a proba di ta menos
cu un porciento pa anja. Y azeta particularmente azeta impor-

tA master a yena e diferencia. Mi ta cita e ehempelnan ski,
no pa tira falta ariba e ambientalistanan, pero pa mustra cu de-
saroyonan di future ta dificil pa anticipa pa hopi clase di motibo-

Curso di Reclente Eventos

Mi ta kere cu mayoria hende ta comprande na a tempo ski cu e
reduction den production Arabe ta sincere y como consequencla
paisnan rond di mundo tabatin suministro reduce di azeta. Ta un
hecho cu production Arabe na fin di 1973 tabata 22 porciento me-
nos cu su nivel na September. Tambe ta un hecho cu e part ma-
yor di sumistro di azeta p Europa y Japon y como 10 porciento pa
Estados Unidos tabata bini for di Medio Oriente. E scarsedad ta-
bata un resultado inevitable.
Hende a puntra mi paquico importacion di azeta den Estados
Unidos no a baha mes rapid manera por a spera despues cu a
embargo a cuminza. E contests ta cu volumennan substantial di
azeta tabata den transit of den deposit na e tempo ey. Cifras
reciente ta confirm cu importacionnan awor a rebaha mas cu 15
porciento bao e nivel promer cu e embargo. Y master ser recor-
da cu invierno ta e temporada cu petroleo ta ser usa mse tanto y
cu mas y mas tabata depended di importacion pa satisface a nece-
sidad aki.
Algun observadornan a mira na a nivel di inventario di produc-
to cu a ser public na Merca y den esey a mira evidencla cu e si-
tuacion no tabata asina malo manera a ser propaganda. Esaki ta-
bata particularmente asina den caso di products destili, a cate-
goria di productonan cu ta inclui azeta calentador pa cas.
Na fin di Januari, industrial su inventario tabata 50 million baril
ariba e nivel abao di un anja pasi. Esaki por ta parcel un cifra
basta grand. En realidad, a ta represents solamente suministro
di 12 dia na e )cantidad di consume normal di Januari y hopi di dje
tabata debi na e tempo cu tabata mas calor cu costumber. SI
e tempo tabata mas friew cu costumber, e inventario den mitar di
invierno lo tabata hopi mas abao.
Un otro factor cu ta splica a nivel di inventario di product des-
tila tabata e reaction positive di public ariba peticionnan pa con-
servacion di energia. Mayoria di consumidornan a haci nan part
durante invierno door di reduci setmento di nan thermostat.
Y con ta cu inventario di gasoline ? Na fin di Januari, esaki ta-
bata como 6 million baril bao di e nivel di a anja anterior. Segun
primavera y verano ta acercando, refinerianan Io aumenta produc-
cion di gasoline surpasando azeta calentador. Pero cu e inventario
abao actualmente, Estados Unidos lo principia e temporada di pri-
mavera venidero cu un inventario di gasoline mas abao cu ta desea-
ble. Y ariba Februari 1, e inventario di azeta crudo di a pais tabata
di mas abao cu nos tabatin den ultimo cinco anja.
Maneho di inventario y production di refineria no ta un asunto
simple. Si temperaturanan promedio pa e invierno total a anja ski
lo ta mas cayente cu normal, y si hende sigui cooper door di set
nan thermostat mas abao cu nivelnan di costumber, a inventarlo
di azeta calentador na fin di a temporada lo ta mas loke a ser
sperd. Anto nos lo sobrevevi e invierno cu ningun danjo grand.
Mi lo haya esey e resultado di bon suerte di a tempo hunto cu es-

Scarsedad di Energia
(Continua di pagina 3)

fuerzonan comendable di public pa conservation. Un otro hen-
de, sinembargo, por bisa cu esey ta mas eviderrcia cu no tabatin
scarsedad pa cuminza. Nan Io ta robez, pero mi por mira mes ora
paquico hende cu pa hopi tempo ta costumbra cu energia barata
y na cantidad ta haya dificil pa acepta un tal situation radicalmen-
te nobo.

Apetit Mundlal pa Azeta

E causa mayor pa loque nos den e industrial ta mira como un
problema persistent ta keda den e hecho cu demand mundial
ta redobla cada 13 anja. E suministronan pa satisface tal deman-
da a bini for di various fuentenan, pero pa algun d6cada e unico fuen-
te di suministro cu ta aumenta mas tanto ta esun di azeta y gas.
Awor tin senalnan creciente cu azeta y gas Io no ta asina facil dis-
ponibel pa satisface necesidadnan den future.
Pa cambia e tendencia actual di production domestic reducien-
te, nos lo master busca azeta y produce tal azeta den ambientenan
mas y mas peligroso den lama y den norte lejano. Decisionnan no-
bo lo mester bini pa acelera actividadnan na Alaska y pa busca
permit den awanan pafor di costa. Entretanto, naturalmente, e de-
manda lo sigui crece.
Pafor di Estados Unidos tin prospects cu mas azeta Io ser ha-
ya, pero no bastante mes pa satisface e necesidadnan creciente
S- except podiser den algun sitionan local. Por ehempel, azeta
12 pafor di costa di Gran Bretaia, ora e ser desaroyd, por ser spera
di ta suficiente pa cumpli cu parti di e demand Britanico pa algun
of tempo. Pero, den mayor sitionan di consume den su totalidad,
;e sumistro di petroleo lo sigui ser scars.

n- Temponan Dificll Ta Bini
lt- Ta berdad cu ta keda ainda cantidadnan masha grand di reserve
.t di petroleo den Medio Oriente, y si nan word produci na e can-
th tidad maximo cu ta possible, Io tin bastante azeta pa satisface e
es necesidadnan di lugarnan consumidor, incluyendo Estados Unidos,
pa algun anja. Pero a bira evidence cu mundo no por conta ariba
production na cantidadnan tan halto. Ademas, hasta e reserva-
nan grand aki no ta sin limited, y no mester perde ningun tempo
i pa desaroya fuente di energia nobo pa cumpli cu necesidadnan di
f E situation cu awor ta confront nos ta ambos paradoxal y de-
safiante. E parti paradoxal ta cu mundo ta drentando un period
largo di scarsedad di energia masque cu ta keda un abundancia
Sdi fuentenan den e capa di mundo. E energia encerra den car-
bon, leisteen, santo cu ta contene teer, y den atomo ta enorme.
No tin duda cu tal energia por ser sacA afor. Pero e no por ser
haci rapidamente y na cost abao. Un cantidad di problemanan
tecnico master ser resolve, manera com ta dispone di e leisteen
usA. Ademas, e *cantidad di facilidadnan nobo y masha costoso

cu mester ser instalA ta asina grand cu nan no por ser install
den corto tempo. Por ehempel, awor ta tuma ocho pa nuebe an-
ja pa pone un plant nuclear na operation den Estados Unidos.
No tin speranza cu energia for di e fuentenan aki lo reemplaza
azeta y gas conventional pa hopi anja cu ta bini.
Pero, por Io menos e posibilidad economic ariba termino largo
di tal desaroyonan ya no ta un pregunta, ya cu e prijsnan rapida-
mente aumentando di azeta estranhero a percura pa esey. Pro-
yectonan cu tabata parce nada prometedor tempo cu tres dollar
pa baril tabata un prijs halto pa petroleo crudo ta parce masha
diferente na prijsnan di awendia.
Entretanto, te ora cu tecnologia nobo por ser desaroya, nos ta
enfrenta un period dificil di 10 pa 15 anja di sigui confia hopi
mes ariba petroleo conventional.

Ganancla y Capital

Mi a papia cu hopi hende, cu ta bai en general di acuerdo cu
mi evaluacion di e situation di energia, pero cu no obstante tin
critical contra industrial petrolero. Nan ta comprende paquico su-
ministronan ta scars, pero nan ta puntra paquico esaki mester afec-
ta tur otro hende except e companianan di azeta mes.
Nan ta acusa nos di ta cosecha ganancia enorme a cost di e
public consumidor. Laga mi bisa dos cos tocante e ganancia-
nan aki. Promer, nan mester ser mira den perspective, y no iso-
la pa un solo anja of pa un solo compania of industrial. Den ca-
so di Exxon, por ehempel, recientemente nos a anurrcia ganancia-
nan calculA pa 1973 na 2.44 billion dollar. Esaki a compare ma-
sha favorablemente cu 1972 pero esey tabata un anja den cual
ganancianan a munstra casi ningun aumento ariba e anja anterior.
Den un perspective mas largo di un decada di 1963 pa 1972 -
e ganancia di e industrial petrolero for di nan inversion tabata
constantemente bao di e ganancia promedio di tur otro firmanan
productor den Estados Unidos. Hasta cu e ganancianan relativa-
mente halto di awendia pa industrial petrolero, hopi companianan
no-petrolero ta hacienda ganancianan comparable of mas halto
Nos ta un compania hopi grand cu ganancianan total grand.
E cifranan grand aki tin bez ta dificil pa hende comprende, pero
'como cu casi tur hende ta acostumbrd pa cumpra productonan pe-
trolero na galon, bo por ta interest pa sabi cu nos ganancia pro-
medio pa galon ariba tur e productonan cu nos a bende anja pas6
tabata mas o menos 1.9 cent.
E segundo punto tocante ganancia, sea nan ta halto of abao, ta
cu nan tin un function economic esencial. Nan ta duna e inver-
sionista un seal cu demasiado of masha poco ta ser invert den
tal of tal direction. Enberdad, e necesidad di awendia ta pa invert
den fuentenan di energia. Y pa haci esaki, industrial master di ga-
Nos mes plannan di inversion ta expandiendo na un paso sin
precedent. Luna pasA nos a anuncia gastos pa 1974 di 3.7 bil-
lion dollar. Pa e siguiente cuatro anja nos ta pronostica gasto-
nan capital di Exxon den vecindario di 16 billion dollar, mientras
mayoria di esaki ta bai den exploration di reserves di azeta y gas,
construction di facilidadnan di transportacion-y desaroyo di fuen-
tenan nobo di energia.
For di unda tur e placa aki ta bini ? Un parti grand di dje mes-
ter bini, naturalmente, for di ganancianan y ademas for di otro
fuentenan. Por cierto, si nos ganancia a keda na nivel di 1972
of e anjanan anterior, e problema di financiamento lo ta mas gran-
di cu e ta actualmente.
Laga mi ripiti en breve loque mi a bisa. E problema di energia
ta algo realmente berdad. E no ta solamente un consequencia
temporal di e Guerra na Medio Oriente. E lo ta cu nos pa un can-
tidad di anja y lo master di hopi percuracion den maneho di nos
asuntonan. El ta requiri economic den uso di energia convencio-
nal y concentration den desaroyo di fuentenan nobo di energia.
E ta un problema cu ingeniosidad y determination human por
