The melting of Arctic ice will not facilitate the production of oil
The problem is that the release of ice large tracts of waters will lead to an increase in the number of storms in the polar regions. Will also increase the number of stray icebergs. All this together even slightly increase the risk for Arctic oil platforms and navigation.

Accordingly, the costs of exploration and development of oil deposits is not significantly reduced, the scientist said. However, the general climate change will affect industrial production of hydrocarbons in the region, and, consequently, on economic policy, owning plots of the Arctic shelf.

In 2011, the Russian state-owned company signed with the American Corporation ExxonMobil, the strategic partnership agreement, which, among other things, provided for the exploration and development of three license areas in this sea East Prinovozemelsky-1, -2 and -3.

And in 2014 on the block East Prinovozemelsky-1 the well "University-1" was drilled. The result has been to open a large deposit, called "Victory". According to preliminary estimates, its reserves by category C1+C2 130 million tons, gas about 500 billion cubic meters.
