Carter announces increase in Saudi Oil production

(Continued from Page 1)
O'Neill said the members of Congress
were told the increase in Saudi oil
production would be from 500,000 to 1
million barrels a day. But it was un-
clear how much of the increase would
reach gasoline pumps in the United
States or when it would be available.

Rumors of the Saudi oil production
hike had been circulating in the Middle
East since last week after the Saudi
state radio announced a temporary in-
crease because the government needed
the extra money for its $142 billion
development program.
IN NICOSIA, Cyprus, the Middle
East Economic Survey reported
yesterday just hours before the White
House announcement that the increase

one million barrels a day - more than
double the shortage in U.S. imports -
for the three summer months.
Deputy-White House press secretary
Rex Granum, who read to reporters a
three-paragraph announcement about
the increase, said it would extend "for a
significant and specific period of time,"
but that details would be announced by
the Saudi government.
The announcement said Carter had
received "a personal commitment
from Crown Prince Fahd." Granum
said the message had been relayed to
Robert Strauss, Carter's special Middle
East envoy, and John West, the U.S.
ambassador to Saudi Arabia, in a
meeting in Riyadh last week with Fahd,
the most powerful figure in the Saudi
royal family.'

commitment of increased production.
Saudi Arabia, which supports the
Palestinians, has strongly opposed the
Egyptian-Israeli peace agreement.
The White House announcement said
only that "the personal message to the
president made clear that the Saudi
decision is based on their historic frien-
dly relationship with the United States,
and their commitment to be a depen-
dable supplier of oil to the world."
Carter, who last week was sharply
critical of the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries, of
which Saudi Arabia is a key member,
yesterday "expressed the appreciation
of the American people for this
decision," the White House statement
"He wishes to emphasize, however,
that while the increased production will
be helpful in the short term, it does not
relieve the United States or other oil
consuming nations of the necessity for
firm action to reduce significantly their
dependence on imported oil," it said.

"At this point, it is the process that is
important because it sets the
psychological climate for the results
that must come later," said a close ad-
viser to the Egyptian president.
THE EXPANSION of the original
one-day schedule to 48 hours over three
days prompted speculation that Sadat
and the Israeli prime minister would
try to capitalize on the procedural
breakthrough at last week's round of
talks on autonomy for the 1.1 million
Palestinian Arabs living in the Israeli-
occupied West Bank of the Jordan
River and the Gaza Strip.
At those sessions, U.S. Mideast envoy
Robert Strauss orchestrated an
agreement by both sides to -set up
working groups to study key issues,
rather than continue their wrangling
over an agenda.
