The Arctic Refuge is a 19 million acre wilderness in northern Alaska that is among the last unspoiled ecosystems in the world. At its northern tip, between the Beaufort Sea and the Brooks mountain range, lies the Coastal Plain that is a birthing ground for porcupine caribou and sacred to the Gwich’in people, who have lived in the region for tens of thousands of years.

While the true extent of resources in the Arctic is unknown, an assessment of worldwide, undiscovered oil and gas resources by the US Geological Survey (USGS) estimated that as much as 14% of the world’s undiscovered oil and gas is contained in the region – and that study ignored vast tracts of the Arctic, due to lack of data.

[James W Brooks; James C Bartonek; David R Klein; David L Spencer; Averill Thayer; United States. Bureau of Sport Fisheries and Wildlife.]. This book provides an overview of the many issues relevant to offshore oil and gas development in the Arctic.

Topics covered in this book include a brief historical background of Arctic oil and gas development; a discussion of the economic importance of oil in Alaska; challenges of Arctic oil spill response; Arctic subsistence resource issues; an overview of important ecological resources in Author: Roman Shumenko.

Brooks, J. W.:‘Environmental Influences of Oil and Gas Development with Reference to the Arctic Slope and Beaufort Sea’, Bureau of Sport Fisheries and by: This book identifies accumulated environmental, social and economic effects of oil and gas leasing, exploration, and production on Alaska's North Slope.

Economic benefits to the region have been accompanied by effects of the roads, infrastructure and activies of oil and gas production on the terrain, plants, animals and peoples of the North Slope.

The main regions in the Arctic linked to oil and gas exploitation are the Beaufort Sea (North Slope, Alaska and Mackenzie Delta, Canada), and the northwest part of the Russian Arctic (Barents Sea and West-Siberia). Oil and gas are also found in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago (Nunavut). These three regions are also targeted for future exploitation.

A number of factors affecting potential oil and gas exploration and development activities in the Beaufort Sea have changed since the BREA Activity Forecast was prepared. This report is intended to provide an updated general description of potential oil and gas exploration and development activities in the Beaufort Sea over the next.

Environmental Risks with Proposed Offshore Oil and Gas Development off Alaska’s North Slope In AugustRoyal Dutch Shell Oil (Shell) plans to begin exploratory drilling in the Arctic Ocean off Alaska’s northern coast.

If Shell finds oil, it and other oil companies will return to the Arctic for additional exploration in the future. Within. may affect, positively or negatively, oil and gas operations in the Beaufort Sea. There is clear evidence that the physical properties of the Beaufort Sea are being affected by climate change.

Ice and water conditions in the Southern Beaufort Sea (SBS) are strongly influenced by oceanic and sea ice exchanges with neighboring regions. The Alaska North Slope has been a major U.S. oil production province since production was initiated in Prudhoe Bay field in ANS oil production has decreased to just under 1 million barrels per day in from million barrels per day in (falling to 17 percent of total U.S.

crude oil production from about 25 percent). 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.

In AprilTrump signed an executive order lifting a ban on oil exploration in the coastal seas of Alaska. The U.S. government is now proposing 19 o ff shore lease sales in the Chukchi Sea, the Beaufort Sea, Cook Inlet, and other areas.

Any oil spills in these Arctic waters would be catastrophic for bowhead whales, seals, polar bears, and other marine mammals and would directly a.

Introduction. The Arctic is rich in hydrocarbon e the harsh climate, offshore Arctic drilling began in the s.Until recently, global interest in exploitation of these resources were fueled by relatively high global energy prices and declining Arctic sea ice cover.However, offshore drilling activity has seen cycles of exploration and development, largely due to Cited by: Environmental Impact Statement.

Concurrently, oil and gas development is projected to expand across the region, the wide-scale effects of which are largely unknown in a less-resilient system.

This research provides the framework for using satellite data to assess and monitor suspended sediment conditions in Author: Anne Carrie Hickey Hobson.

October – The Prospects and Challenges for Arctic Oil Development 2 between Arctic states will be prerequisites for success. At the same time, environmental risks and popular opposition to oil and gas activity in the Arctic are factors that could undermine.

Projects in the east Arctic, closer to Canada’s Beaufort Sea, receive an even greater incentive — no extraction tax for the first 12 years of operation. Russia may be borrowing a page from. The lack of scientific evidence raises critical concerns about further oil and gas development in the Arctic.

However, the acquisition of scientific knowledge on the Arctic has been relegated to a secondary priority when it concerns oil and gas development. We know that Offshore oil drilling in the Arctic is a challenge, both technnically and. State Office jointly funded this Alaska North Slope oil and gas resource assessment.

The purpose of the assessment is to provide a detailed assessment and analysis of Alaska North Slope oil and gas resources and the interrelated technical, economic, and environmental factors controlling development of those resources. The Prudhoe Bay oil field, west of the Arctic refuge, shows what oil production looks like on Alaska's North Slope.

It's the largest oil field in North America, coveringacres and. Elinor Ostrom, “The Challenge of Common-pool Resources,” Environment: Science and Policy for Sustainable Developm no. 4 (): of Arctic oil and gas is an important indicator for its conflict potential.
