      Recent years have seen increasing interest in offshore oil exploration in the Arctic and other frontier regions. While these activities may seem like new developments, in fact Arctic oil exploration, and in some cases production, has been going on for about half a century. Hundreds of wells have been drilled in Arctic waters without any sustained, uncontrolled release of oil or gas. Gazprom Neft operates the only oil-producing platform in Russia’s Arctic currently. The Prirazlomnoye oil field in the Pechora Sea started pumping oil back in late The field is estimated.

      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 environment and.   The Natural History of an Arctic Oil Field synthesizes decades of research on these myriad impacts. Specialists with years of field experience have contributed to this volume to create the first widely available synopsis of the ecology and wildlife biology of animals and plants living in close association with an actively producing oil Edition: 1.

These satellite images of a small part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge show the site of what, so far, is the only oil well ever drilled in the refuge, an exploratory well known as KIC Arctic oil and gas 5 The quest for Arctic oil and gas resources is not for the faint of heart, nor for those with less-than-deep pockets.
