supported primarily by investments from private Russian oil and gas companies. Twenty major oil and gas provinces and basins have been discovered on the Russian shelf, 10 of which have proved oil and gas reserves.

The United States Geological Survey has estimated the undiscovered technically recoverable conventional oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids resources north of the Arctic Circle to be approximately billion barrels oil.

Oil and gas transportation systems in the Arctic include local and main oil and gas pipelines, transportation by railways and marine tanker fleet. The existence of the Northern Sea Route (NSR) and nuclear icebreaker fleet allows transportation of HC liquids (oil.

technically recoverable oil and gas resources are located in the Arctic, including 13% of the world´s undiscovered oil. 1 More than three-quarters of these resources are to be found offshore in the territories of the five littoral states of the Arctic Sea – namely, the US, Canada, Russia.

There are 19 geological basins making up Arctic Oil and Gas by Rail book Arctic region. Some of these basins have experienced oil and gas exploration, most notably the Alaska North Slope where oil was first produced in from Prudhoe Bay. However, only half the basins – such as the Beaufort Sea and the West Barents Sea – have been explored.

Estimated Canadian Arctic Oil and Gas Reserves.

The USGS estimates that the Amerasia Basin, which is shared by Canada and the US, holds the second biggest undiscovered oil share in the Arctic, which amounts to ca. 10 billion barrels of oil equivalent (BBOE) and is only topped by Arctic Alaska with approximately three times as : Kathrin Stephen.

The Arctic Frontiers Oil and Gas Map to encompasses projects within the Arctic Circle and areas that are exposed to arctic-like conditions, such as semi-permanent ice cover and exposure to icebergs. The Arctic Frontiers Map highlights ice flows, shipping lanes, supply, support and research bases and helicopter and aircraft landing locations.

The Arctic is estimated to hold oil and gas reserves equivalent to billion barrels of oil, about 22 per cent of the worlds undiscovered oil and gas.

Canada had in billion barrels of proven oil reserves. If, however, her oil sands deposits are included, Canada has proven reserves of billion barrels, second only to Saudi. Dear Colleagues, On behalf of CI Energy Group, I am pleased to welcome you to the 17th Annual Arctic Oil & Gas Symposium in Calgary, Alberta.

As North America’s premier Arctic oil and gas conference, this anticipated event brings together government officials, industry players and community leaders for an open discussion on moving production forward in Canada’s North.

The vast Arctic region is probably the last remaining unexplored source of hydrocarbons on the planet. Ultimate resources are estimated at billion barrels of undiscovered oil and trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

This great prize, in a world of diminishing resources, has stimulated both governmental and industry interest. Occupational safety and health and skills in the oil transport of oil and gas by air, rail, supply ship and crane, in polar and subarctic climate have diminished and the sea level has risen.2 The warming of the Arctic is enabling oil and gas exploration that would have been impossible just a few decades ago.

The oil and gas resources of the Arctic region represent one of the most promising, largely untapped hydrocarbon resources in the world. A U.S. Geological Survey study estimated the recoverable oil.

Russia's Arctic territories are estimated to contain up to billion tons of oil and gas and the nation needs to defend its claim to those riches, a Cabinet minister said Tuesday. This oil and gas map shows the distribution and probability of potential oil and gas fields in the Arctic.

Oil & Gas. The Arctic contains a wealth of petroleum and mineral resources. Currently, the region produces about one tenth of the world's oil and a quarter of its natural gas. The Russian Arctic is the source for about 80 percent of this oil and virtually all of the natural gas; Arctic Canada, Alaska, and Norway are the other leading producers.

The Arctic's extreme weather and freezing temperatures, its remote location and the presence of moving sea ice severely increase the risks of oil drilling, complicate logistics and present unparalleled difficulties for any clean-up operation. Its fragile ecosystem is particularly vulnerable to an oil spill and the consequences of an accident would have a profound effect on the.

This may soon change. Inthe Government of Canada, along with the United States, imposed a five-year moratorium on issuing new oil and gas licenses in the Arctic Ocean but operations can still proceed under the dozens of existing permits. Canada will designate all Arctic Canadian waters as indefinitely off limits to future offshore Arctic oil and gas licensing, to be reviewed every five years through a climate and marine science.
