American Enterprises in Holland

Continue to Increase in 1968

In an article in a recent
"Knickerbocker International"
Dr. Paul Catz, a department
head for the magazine, gives
the following picture of U.S.
enterprises operating in Hol-
The number of American
enterprises operating in The
Netherlands wholly owned
subsidiaries or joint ventures
- continues to increase. In
August 1968, this number
was 357, compared with 334
at the end of 1967 and 314 at
the end of 1966. Though the
figures reveal nothing of the
extent of the specific invest.
ments and the size of the
companies, the growth m
numbers itself is a positive
factor. Another positive factor
is the intense activity of Am-
erican enterprises here, espe-
cially in the chemical and
petrochemical sectors. All
along the line the watchword
is: expansion. To name a few
prominent examples: Esso,
Chevron, Gulf, Mobil Oil and
Dow. The American spirit of
enterprise is also active in
other sectors of the economy,
metallurgy, for instance.
Moreover, there are indica-
tions that the Netherlands in-

dustrial representative in New
York, Mr. J. G. Hafkemeyer,
who is engaged in attracting
American industries to The
Netherlands, is doing well, and
some news about new estab-
lishments should soon be
The majority of Netherlan-
ders do not deplore the pres-
ence of American industry, or
feel that it is a menace, but
rather that it is a stimulant
which also is broadening the
assortment of the Dutch ex-
port packet. The Dutch realize
that the Americans are not
infallible, and they can and do
make mistakes, just like the
Europeans. Americans have
made a few bad investments.
However, they do not try to
patch up and hobble along
with their mistakes, but in
most instances, they take
drastic measures to cut los-
ses. The Netherlands conti-
nues to be attractive to Ame-
rican business, even though it
no longer has a big reservoir
of cheap labor and low costs,
since these have now reached
the average West European
level. An important considera-
tion is the stable political pic-
ture prevalent in Holland.

25 Billion bbls. from 1882- 1968

In Next 10 Yrs. Jersey to Produce

Second 25 Billion Barrels of Oil

A milestone was reached
sometime during the middle
of September when the cum-
ulative production of crude
oil and natural gas liquids by
Jersey's affiliates hit the 25
billion barrel mark.
"It took 86 years to prod-
uce our first 25 billion bar-
rels," board chairman Mi-
chael L. Haider said in com-
menting on the achievement.
"We expect to produce the
second 25 billion barrels with-
in the next 10 years."
He said these figures point-
ed up "both the tremendous
growth in the worldwide de-
mand for petroleum energy
and the need to generate un-
precedented amounts of capi-
tal to meet future require.
Mr. Haider noted it took
Jersey affiliates 49 years -
from the company's founding
in 1882 until 1931 to pro-
duce the first billion barrels.
By contrast, he said, the com-

pany's production of crude oil
and natural gas liquids during
1967 alone exceeded 1.6 bil-
lion barrels. This amounted to
about 14 percent of the total
of 11.2 billion barrels produc-
ed throughout the free world
during the year.
At today's rates of con-
sumption, 25 billion barrels of
oil would supply the require-
ments of the United States
for only six years and the en-
tire free world needs for two
years. These figures, Mr. Hai-
der said, explain why Jersey
and the entire oil industry
must search relentlessly for
new reserves, both in the Un-
ited States and abroad.

In 1967, 20 percent of the
company's production came
from the U.S., he said. Ven-
ezuela accounted for 34 per-
cent, the Middle East 26 per-
cent, Africa 12 percent and
Canada 4 percent. The rest
came from other areas.
