countries this potential may not be achieved. A great deal depends on a refining and consolidation of politics and economic planning in general, and oil policy in partic- ular, in countries such as Libya,

Nigeria, Venezuela, and Mexico, which are among those outside the Middle East with the great- est potential for an expansion in oil production in the 1980s.

The Study concludes that by 1985 a total in the range of 67-95 million dwf of long-haul tanker demand could have been displaced by increased oil production from short and medium-haul sources.

Since the long-haul routes are largely tonnaged by VLCCs and

ULCCs, the implication is that this displacement of long-haul tanker demand will deal a blow to employment prospects for large tankers, and serve to further the trend already evident toward me- dium-sized ships. "Crude Oil Supply and Tanker

Lips-Doran To Establish

Chesapeake, Va., Plant

Lips-Doran Company, a subsid- iary of Lips Propeller Works of

Drunen, the Netherlands, will es- tablish one of its U.S. manufac- turing and service facilities in

Chesapeake, Va.

Lips is one of the world's larg- est manufacturers of large mono- block propellers, controllable-pitch propellers and thrusters. The com- pany operates 32 facilities around the world.

The Lips-Doran plant in Chesa- peake will construct a new build- ing on a five-acre tract in the

Cavalier Industrial Park in Chesa- peake. The new plant will serve as a production and repair facility for mono-block propellers, con- trollable-pitch propellers and thrusters. Company spokesman

Jeff van Oekel indicated opera- tions are expected to begin in mid-1980.

The company has operated a similar facility in Mississippi since 1970. However, according to

Mr. van Oekel, the intense con- centration of shipbuilding activity along the East Coast of the

United States, and in Virginia's

Tidewater area particularly, per- suaded the company to shift these operations. The company has been in operation in temporary facili- ties in the Tidewater area since 1977. Lips-Doran will continue to operate their propeller facilities in Oakland, Calif., and Portland,
