 PROVINCE OF BRITISH COLUMBIA
REPORT
OF the
COAL AND PETROLEUM
CONTROL BOARD
FOR  THE
YEAR ENDED 31ST DECEMBER, 1939
PRINTED BY
AUTHORITY OF THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY.
VICTORIA,  B.C. :
Printed by Charles F. Banfield, Printer to the King's Most Excellent Majesty.
1940.  To His Honour E. W. Hamber,
Lieutenant-Governor of the Province of British Columbia.
May it please Your Honour:
Sir,—I have the honour to transmit herewith the Report of the  Coal and Petroleum
Control Board for the year ended December 31st, 1939.
W. A. CARROTHERS,
Coal and Petroleum Control Board.
Victoria, B.C., 1940.  Annual Report of the Coal and Petroleum Control Board
for the Calendar Year ended December 31st, 1939.
The number of licences issued by the Board under Regulation 1 and in force as at December 31st, 1938, totalled 3,088. Of these, some 453 were in the coal industry. During 1939,
501 new licences were issued, 436 being in respect of operators engaged in the various
industries prior to the Board's inception, but not licensed in 1938. During this period 160
licences of all classes for various reasons were cancelled, leaving a net total of 3,429 licences
in force as at December 31st, 1939.
Under section 6 of the " Coal and Petroleum Products Control Board Act " no person,
since the appointment of the Board, may commence business in any of the coal and petroleum
industries without first obtaining a licence, and under this authority careful consideration has
been given to all applications as to their public necessity and the services to be rendered.
Where applications are in respect of retail gasoline outlets, preference has been given where
applications are in respect of garages or properly equipped service-stations.
The number of major companies doing business in the oil industry in the Province
remains unchanged, there being nine such companies, four of which extend their operations
over the greater part of the Province. They are: Imperial Oil, Ltd., Union Oil Company
of Canada, Ltd., Shell Oil Company of British Columbia, Ltd., and the Standard Oil Company
of British Columbia.
Home Oil Distributors, Ltd., Signal Oil Company, Ltd., British American Oil Company,
Ltd., The Texas Company of Canada, Ltd., and the B.C. Fuel Company, Ltd., all have more
or less extensive distributing facilities but do not cover the entire Province. The McColl-
Frontenac Oil Company, Ltd., is not at the present time actively engaged in the distributing
of gasoline in this Province, but it is understood that arrangements are being made by them
to take over the assets of The Texas Company of Canada.
During 1939 the total sales of gasoline in the Province of British Columbia were
59,824,000 gallons. Of this amount, approximately 35,649,000 gallons were refined in the
Province of British Columbia and 2,675,755 gallons imported from the Province of Alberta.
A total of 15,128,283 gallons of casing-head gasoline were imported into the Province for
blending purposes, this being duty free. The total amount of gasoline imported into the
Province upon which duty was paid amounted to 6,371,026 gallons.
The Royal Commission on Coal and Petroleum Products held that at the time of its
investigation there was an unduly large number of retail gasoline outlets in this Province.
This view is naturally also held by existing retailers. To have adopted a policy of refusing
to grant any new retail licences in the industry would have been simple, but in a growing
Province where new areas are developing, and the situation in many parts is continually
changing, such a policy would have been unwise and would not have been in the public
interest. The policy of the Board has been to restrict the number of new licences in as
reasonable a manner as possible in relation to this situation. During the year 1938, while
forty-nine new outlets were created, the majority of these were in isolated parts of the
Province where service to small communities was desirable. The increase in sales of gasoline
during the year 1939 over the year 1938 was 2,689,000 gallons. Of this amount the sales by
new outlets amounted to only 170,000 gallons, so that the increase gallonage during the year
to existing retail outlets was 2,519,000 gallons. This increased volume should tend to reduce
cost of distribution and benefit both wholesalers and retailers.
Operators in the coal industry in the Province have been licensed and control has been
exercised over their number. Information has been secured regarding this industry, of value
not only to the Province but to the Dominion.
Upon the formation of the Wartime Prices and Trade Board by the Dominion Government the Board offered full co-operation and assistance, and in this regard arrangements
have been completed whereby monthly statements and records will be forwarded, commencing
January 1st, 1940. The compiling of these records by the Board will relieve the coal-dealers
throughout this Province of the/ expense and inconvenience of compiling and forwarding
monthly returns to the Dominion Board. X 6 BRITISH COLUMBIA.

Specifications for Gasoline.
1. All gasolines known as "Premium" or "Regular" shall meet the following tests:—■
(a.) Appearance.—The gasoline shall be clear, i.e., free from undissolved water and suspended
matter.
,   (6.)  Sulphur.—The total sulphur content shall not exceed 0.25 per cent, by weight.    The test shall
be conducted in accordance with A.S.T.M. Procedure D-90.
(c.) Corrosion.—The fuel shall pass the test for corrosion in accordance with A.S.T.M. Procedure
D-130.
(d.) Freezing-point (from October to March, inclusive).—The freezing-point of the fuel as indicated by the initial formation of solid matter shall not be higher than minus 36.6° C. (minus 30° F.).
The test shall be made by cooling the sample in a test-tube equipped with a suitable thermometer and
stirrer, and jacketed by a second test-tube, the whole being immersed in a carbon dioxide ether mixture.
(e.) Vapour-pressure.—The vapour-pressure of the fuel shall not exceed 10 lb. per square inch
from April to September, inclusive, and 13 lb. per square inch from October to March, inclusive. The
test shall be conducted in accordance with A.S.T.M. Procedure D-323, except that a vapour-pressure
1 lb. greater shall be permitted at the refinery or at delivery from railway tank-car.
(/.) Gum.—The increase in weight in the test according to A.S.T.M. Procedure D-381 shall be
limited to 15 mg. per 100 cc. Any increase in weight shall be considered as gum. In the case of
gasolines stated to contain top-cylinder lubricant, allowance may be made for any increase in weight
due to the presence of such lubricant, at the discretion of the Board.
2. Gasoline known as " Premium " gasoline shall meet, in addition to the requirements of section 1
hereof, the following requirements as to distillation range: —
Not less than 10 per cent, shall be recovered at 155° F.;
Not less than 50 per cent, shall be recovered at 265° F.;
Not less than 90 per cent, shall be recovered at 380° F.;
and shall have an octane number not less than 78. REPORT OF COAL AND PETROLEUM CONTROL BOARD, 1939.    X 17
3. Gasoline known as " Regular " gasoline shall have, in addition to the requirements of section 1
hereof, the same distillation range as " Premium " gasoline and shall have an octane number of not less
than 68. 	
4. (1.) Subject to the provisions of subsection (3) hereof, the method of procedure to be used in
making the above distillation tests for all grades is that described in A.S.T.M. D-86.
(2.) Subject to the provisions of subsection (3) hereof, the octane number in all cases is to be
determined by the CFR motor method in accordance with A.S.T.M. Procedure D-357.
(3.) All the tests shall be as set forth in the foregoing or by such methods as may, from time to
time, be prescribed by the National Research Council of Canada, unless otherwise prescribed by the
