Blight, Secretary~Treasurer and R. B. Burgess, General Gounsel. They were accompanied by their insurance representative and manager of Michigan operations, The D.N.R. waa represented by A. Gene Gazlay, Assistant Director; Gaylord A, Walker, Deputy Director; Jerome Maslowski, Assistant Attorney General; J.D, Stephansky, Chief, Lands Divisions H. A. Young, In Charge, Oil Pollution Control, Bureau of Water Management; and R. G. Wood, Tax Land and Services Supervisor, Lands Division. Also present was Bill Palmer, Executive Secretacy, OL1 and Ges Association, vho acted as intermediary for Lakehead in arranging for the meeting. We. Blight called attention to covenant J (1) of the easement in which Grantee agrees to indemnity and hold harmless the State of Michigan from all damages and losses caused to property or persons due to or arising out of the operations or actions of Grantee and further provides that Grantee shall maintain a Comprehensive Bodily Injury and Property Danage Liability policy, bond ot surety, in form and substance acceptable to Grantor tn the sum of at least one million dollars covering the ability imposed upon Grantee. Mr. Blight adviced that a rider had been added to their one million dollar insurance policy deleting coverage for damage caused by ofl pollution, Although this constitutes a violation of the aforementioned easement terms, it may not be aa serious as it appears because Lakehead currently has assets of one hundred ninety two million dollars and acknowledges its Liability for any and all damages, including pollution from any break in its Line, without Limbtation and the only change 18 that the first ml1i1on 48 not covered by insurance as to pollution damages. Ww +e Mr. Blight advised, and this was confirmed by the insurance representative, that damage caused by of1 pollution is now excluded from all policies written for off operations whether drilling, producing or transporting, and that Lloyds of London are studying the situation but as of now they also exclude damages by pollution. An alternative would be to purchase a one million dollar serety bond, but this is considered money down the drain as the Surety would be called upon to perform only if the Principal were unable to meet its financial obligations, Safety factors to prevent pollution wore discussed and it vas stated that any @rop in prescure would cause the valves on each side of the Straits of close within ten seconds. If the rupture vere at depth the outelde pressure would cause water to enter the pipa rather than ofl to escape, If the rupture were near either shore where the water pressure would not exceed the pressure in tha pipe there would be a loss of of1 but the operations manager said this would not Likely exceed one hundred barrels as the valves would close quickly, cutting off the pressure. We were advised that all Joints have been re-sealed using improved methods and that only two major breaks have occurred in the overland line in the 17 years of operations. One of then was eaused by a construction accident by another company and both breaks were quickly repaired without serious damage or loss of oft. The excellence of their operation was confirmed by H. A. Young and he doesn't hand out many bouquats, Tha umndervater lines across the Straits were completely inspected in 1963 at @ cost of $140,000.00 and found to be in A-l condition. ‘hey were last presaure teated with vater In 1967, Additional tests will be made fairly soon, but the Company ts confident the pipe has not deteriorated and is as good as new. Bea j Mr, Blight agreed to cover the subject in a letter with the understanding —~~~enat’ ££ the’ Departmont were to concur that the Conpany can handle this Mability without a surety bond the Director would so recommend to the Commission as this would require @ modification of the easement, a : R. @, woop August 12, 1970 ec: A.
