They are only in the natural resources business. Occidental will build the 30,000 barrel per day plant at a cost of about $50,000,000. However they want to pick a new location on government land of greater producing capacity for a 100,000 barrels per day plant, want a ''no recourse loan'' from the government, to be paid back from profits, to get this underway…..' and also referring to Occidental's competitors, Standard Oil of Indiana and Gulf Oil, who were sharing oil rights over 5,000 acres in Colorado. Signed by Seaborg in black ink with his name alone at the foot of the second page. Two small staple holes to the upper left corner, otherwise VG
