Morse. Mr. and Mrs. Jack Tinker, Mr. and Mrs. Bill Price, The ctuestion of gas supply comes up freauently these days In the following interview with C C. Ingrain, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Oklahoma Natural Gas Company, the questions most often asked by con- sumers are presented His answers should clarify the situation for you Q MR. INGRAM, IS THERE A SHORT- AGE OF NATURAL GAS? A NOT AS FAR AS OKLAHOMA NATURAL IS CONCERNED. Of course, there is a shortage in many parts of the country There are no problems in view, however, that the gas industry shouldn't be able to solve WHY IS OKLAHOMA NATURAL COMPARATIVELY SO WELL OFF? At, TWO MAIN REASONS. One. we re doing business in the right place, at the right time, and blessed with a good gas supply Secondly, we set out years ago to establish ourselves as an aggressive gas purchaser with a dependable pipeline system and underground storage facilities We have accomplished those goals BUT EVEN SO, AREN'T YOUR RESERVES RUNNING OUT? A NO. The latest (fiscal 1972) audit of otlr gas supply situation showed Okla- homa Natural with an e0uivaJenf of 14 times the 194 billion cubic feet of gas used by our customers in the year 1912. We also slightly increased our reserves during a year when this was a rare occurrence among gas companies. DOES THAT MEAN THAT IN 14 YEARS YOU WILL RUN OUT OF GAS? NOr BECAUSE OKLAHOMA IS THE 3RD RANKED GAS PRODUCING STATE IN AMERICA, AND OKLAHOMA NATURAL IS AN AGGRESSIVE GAS PURCHASER AND EXPLORER. We have no apprehension about obtaining gas reserves that will assure our long- term future. WOULDN'T YOU BE BETTER OFF WITH A 20- OR 30-YEAR RESERVE SUPPLY? A NOI IT BECOMES A QUESTION OF HOW MUCH IS ENOUGH. When you buy groEeries, you have to pay for them whether you eat them now, tomorrow or next week, You buy enough so you won't have to shop every day but not so much that you bend the family budget or run out of storage room You buy with a plan. ONG buys natural gas in much the same way We buy enough so our cus- tomers have it whe~n they need it. But like you, we have expenses, too. And buying too much too soon could push our costs and your prices up at an accelerated rate. Q HOW CAN WE, AS CONSUMERS, HELP CONSERVE THIS VALUABLE NATURAL RESOURCE? -6- OVER 93% OF THE ELECTRICITY GENERATED IN OKLAHOMA IS PRODUCED BY BURNING NATURAL GAS AS BOILER FUEL. By using natural gas in this manner, over two- thirds of the potential energy never arrives at the customer's home or business for his use. When natural gas is used directly in the home for the jobs it does best., it is very efficient, This is the reason Oklahoma Natural developed the Natural Energy Home Program. A program of conservation that urges everyone to utilize both gas and electricity in an efficient and economical manner. This concept can add years to the availability of natural gas, WE AT OKLAHOMA NATURAL HAVE BEEN IN THE ENERGY BUSINESS FOR A LONG TIME--SINCE 1906. WE INTEND TO REMAIN IN THIS BUSINESS FOR A LONG, LONG TIME TO COME. Stillwater, were tors with their Mrs. Maude Davis. Labor Day weekend with their g and Mrs. Andy Chet and Tamara Ripley.
