The new cold war: The race for Arctic oil and gas - Counting the Cost
The Arctic, which is believed to contain as much as one-quarter of the world's undiscovered oil is part of a massive territorial dispute. The United States, Russia, Canada, Denmark, Norway and Iceland are all laying claim to the area, with each country eager to tap into the oil, 30 percent of the earth's natural gas and resources such as diamonds, gold and iron. In August, Russia submitted a bid to the UN claiming a territory thought to hold $30 trillion worth of oil and gas. Meanwhile, Canada has been scrambling to defend its territory against the US arguing that it is sovereign Canadian water, not an international waterway. Amid the Arctic land grab, Iceland has also seized the opportunity for exploration. Vanishing at 13 percent a decade, the melting ice is expected to make drilling, mining and shipping easier. Gunnar Bragi Sveinsson, Iceland's Foreign Minister joins Counting the Cost to discuss Iceland's plans for the Arctic and protecting the region from climate change. ISIL's toll on Turkey's economy Turkey's economy is on a worrisome course with it's local stock market and currency continuing to decline. Hit by political uncertainty, unable to form a coalition government and becoming ever more involved in the chaos in neighbouring Syria, Turkey's economy has been dealt a series of blows. Just a few years ago, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AK party were almost unstoppable, both politically and economically. Erhan Aslanoglu, a Professor at Marmara University joins the programme to discuss Ankara's economic downturn. Opal Mining Takes Off in Ethiopia The Ethiopian highlands are often called "the roof of Africa". A rugged, breathtakingly beautiful landscape, the discovery of opals in recent years has got precious gem experts around the world excited. The industry currently generates around $25m a year and has led to Ethiopia being ranked among the five fastest growing economies in the world.

► Ice Race - Border Conflicts about OIL (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
The Arctic is an area with massive reserves that are extremely important for billions of people – but with unclear borderlines. History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. “Border Conflict” explains that the borders in the Arctic are disputed and have not been finally determined despite the fact that they have been defined in accordance with international criteria. Zoia Vylka Ravna is a member of the indigenous Nenets people, but she has lived away from the Russian tundra for a long time. She is now returning to her homeland in the far north of Russia where she becomes witness to the fact that her people’s traditional grazing grounds have been invaded by a new industry. Like the members of many other indigenous groups around the Polar basin she feels as though she has been robbed and forgotten. Will the countries in the north comply with international regulations while a desperate hunt for energy resource is taking place? Will it be possible to share this area without any military conflicts arising – and will the exploitation of natural resources be able to occur peacefully? In the final episode of the series “Ice Race” we stand at an important and dangerous crossroads in our search for more oil and gas. Because even though we are starting to use new sources of energy, the world will be dependent on petroleum activities for many decades to come. Despite numerous expeditions, our knowledge about the seas around the North Pole is still almost non-existent. The sovereigny of the countries around the polar basin only extends for 200 nautical miles. The remaining polar areas are administered by the UN. The race to find oil and gas in the Arctic Ocean has meant that it is therefore even more important for the five Arctic countries, i.e. USA, Russia, Canada, Norway and Denmark, to secure more of the polar basin. All these countries are therefore fighting intensely over what are sometimes overlapping border claims. These claims extend all the way to the outer limits of the continental shelf, i.e. the shallow waters off these countries’ coasts. If the new race culminates in predatory activities and major conflict, the indigenous populations could become the first and greatest loosers!

How natural gas could be a geopolitical game-changer in the Mideast
Subscribe to France 24 now: http://f24.my/youtubeEN FRANCE 24 live news stream: all the latest news 24/7 http://f24.my/YTliveEN It's a discovery that could easily shake up the geopolitical order in the Middle East. Deep under the eastern Mediterranean lies the largest natural gas basin ever found on Europe's doorstep. But the gas fields often coincide with disputed borders between rival nations. Our reporter Marine Pradel investigated this lucrative resource, which everyone wants a piece of. The billions of cubic metres of natural gas discovered in recent years off Israel, Egypt and Cyprus form what is now called the "Levantine Basin", the largest natural gas reservoir within easy reach of Europe. The first major deposit, known as Tamar, was discovered in 2009 off the coast of Haifa, Israel, by a consortium made up of Noble Energy (US) and Delek-Avner (Israel). Other gas fields were later discovered in the same zone of the "Levantine Basin": Leviathan (Israel), Aphrodite (Cyprus), but most importantly Zohr, in 2015 off the coast of Egypt: the largest gas field ever discovered in the Mediterranean, larger than all the others combined. It was found by the Italian oil giant ENI, which has already started to exploit it and is aiming to start production by the end of 2017. Meanwhile, Israel, supported by its US ally, is drilling away, driven by a free-market and idealistic vision: exploiting the gas will oblige the countries of the region to co-operate as business partners, which will in turn create peace and stability. But the gas under the Mediterranean Sea may also carry within it the seeds of new conflicts. On the divided island of Cyprus, it threatens reunification efforts. In Lebanon, its location - straddling the disputed maritime boundary with Israel - boosts the belligerent rhetoric of the armed Hezbollah group. It is hoped the gas could be worth billions of dollars, and all eyes are on the highly coveted European gas market, which Russia would like to keep for itself. Speaking to FRANCE 24 in Washington, the US Special Envoy and Coordinator for International Energy Affairs summarised the situation. “All of a sudden, it’s not just a bunch of fishermen that care about those waters. Suddenly, there’s billions and billions of dollars”, he explained. The stakes are certainly high. In total, nearly 3,500 billion cubic metres of natural gas could lie under the eastern Mediterranean, according to a study by the US Geological Survey. From Egypt to Syria via Lebanon, Israel and Cyprus, our reporter investigated this precious resource, a double-edged sword that awakens old Cold War reflexes and could well upset the geopolitical order of an already unstable region.

Geopolitics of the Arctic
Support CaspianReport through Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/CaspianReport Channel of Patrice: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCO-NZoGEzCE5klWUCZVDuWQ BAKU - The Arctic covers roughly 14 million square kilometers of water and solid ice. It’s almost the size of Antarctica. For most of its part, the region is inhospitable. In the summer, the weather can rise above the melting point, yet, in the winter, it can plunge down to minus 45 degrees Celsius. This situation, however, is not to last. In the coming decades, climate change will make the Arctic passages and resources become more accessible. Given the abundance of resources and critical trade routes, it should come as no surprise that the Arctic will turn into a new geopolitical flashpoint.

World oil consumption is still surging upward, and production is having to rise to continue meeting it, but there's only so much remaining in all the places we've already surveyed up to this point. Now there are a few oil and gas frontier regions remaining, with large undiscovered reserves likely waiting to found, but that list is growing narrow.

Stop Arctic Drilling Cold – Keep Oil Under the Sea
The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world and as the ice melts, previously inaccessible oil and gas resources become less difficult to exploit. But that doesn’t mean we should start drilling. And there’s more than one reason why. The Obama Administration is expected to release its final decision on a five-year leasing program for Arctic drilling in November. The time to act is now.

Cold Rush. Drilling For Oil Amid Arctic Ice
In 2014 Russia became the world’s first producer of Arctic Oil or ARCO. The Prirazlomnaya platform on the Russian Shelf above the Arctic Circle, operates round the clock to extract the oil. The “Kirill Lavrov” is one of two giant tankers that ferry the black gold to land. The platform is constantly expanding, putting down new bore holes. Once extracted the oil must be carefully analysed to ensure the quality is consistent. So scientists aboard the platform never stop, from their own laboratory on the rig, they make sure the oil always meets the highest standards. Everything that happens out here is scrutinised and practiced to perfection. The man-made island has 2 search and rescue teams who practice regularly emergency drills to keep the crew safe and to respond swiftly in the unthinkable event of an oil spill. They take safety seriously, both personal and ecological, the engineers take great pride in the fact that not a drop of oil has been spilt since the rig came into operation. The Prirazlomnaya’s numbers around 200 people who work day and night in extremely harsh conditions. The shift patterns mean that they spend every other month away from their families. It certainly takes strength of character to do this job. RT Doc visits the rig to meet the people of Russia’s first Arctic oil platform, including the only woman aboard, to find out more about the process of producing ARCO safely.

The New Cold War: Who Owns Arctic Oil?
Zero Line with Dr. Kent Moors The New Cold War: Russia vs U.S.A. - Who Owns Arctic Oil? http://zerolinekentmoors.com/media/new-cold-war-who-owns-arctic-oil/ The Arctic represents only 6% of the Earth's surface, yet it contains 20% of the world's undiscovered oil and natural gas -- this amounts to approximately 412 billion barrels of energy worth some $10.5 trillion. Needless to say, countries all over the northern hemisphere are fighting over who owns the Arctic oil. Who Owns the Arctic Oil However, no fewer than seven countries believe they have a legitimate stake to the Arctic and its resources, such as oil, and this will eventually pit the United States against Russia in a battle to win control of Arctic oil. Moreover, rising temperatures and melting Arctic ice are altering the political reality in the far north. In the span of a decade, the Arctic has gone from being considered a 'global common' to a hotly contested economic goldmine. So, Who Owns the Arctic Oil? In a special intelligence briefing that accompanies Dr. Kent Moors' "Great Game Blueprint" (available free to viewers), Moors discusses how this dispute over Arctic oil will evolve and how this situation is ultimately connected to the Great Game, the global resource war worth $20 trillion a year. He also reveals the two companies perfectly positioned to win this new cold war between the U.S. and Russia -- and reward investors who act now...

► Ice Race - Into the Unknown - the Story of the ARCTIC (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
Oil and gas are the very blood of our modern industrial society and our last major reserves are to be found in the Arctic. The lives of practically everyone on earth would be different if we did not have oil and gas. Our reserves will soon become depleted, apart from in the Arctic. Our episode entitled “Entering Virgin Territory” explains the dramatic energy situation. How would this impact on the vulnerable Arctic environment and the indigenous populations living in the area? Should Arctic considerations take precedence over the living standards of the rest of the world? The situation is most dramatic in the USA. This superpower will soon have no major oil wells left. The country is currently consuming three times as much oil as it produces and it is paying sky-high prices throughout the world to secure access to this black gold. The northernmost town in the USA, Barrow, lies in the middle of an area which is believed to contain Alaska’s richest oil reserves. The local Eskimo population lives mainly off the area’s natural land and sea resources, and an indomitable will to survive. They are now directing their energy towards the oil industry that wants to establish activities in the area. As the Polar ice starts to melt the oil industry is dreaming about making major oil and gas finds in this more or less untouched territory. The violent conflicts and wars that are taking place in some of the world’s most affluent oil states are adding further fuel to these dreams. But who should be entitled to extract future oil and gas reserves in the Arctic? Where do the borders run in this icy territory? History has shown us that this is an extremely dangerous situation. Because will a world that is becoming increasingly more dependent on oil respect national borders, historic territorial claims and be able to resolve border conflicts in an amicable manner? In our fourth and final programme, “Border Conflict”, we show how the new race in the Arctic is creating new borders and new conflicts.

🇺🇸 US judge blocks Trump bid to allow oil drilling in Arctic Ocean | Al Jazeera English
US President Donald Trump's executive order to allow offshore oil drilling in the Arctic Ocean has been overturned. A Federal Judge Sharon Gleason called Trump's reversal of an environmental protection policy from the Obama era "unlawful and invalid". The ruling, which reinstates the drilling ban in much of the Arctic Ocean off of Alaska, is the result of a lawsuit brought by a coalition of environmental groups following Trump's executive order. It is seen as a major blow to Trump's push to expand offshore oil and gas development.

India Russia made a Unbelievable Deal on Oil and Military Trade
India Russia made a Unbelievable Deal on Oil and Military Trade . Moscow offers New Delhi access to oil-&-gas-rich northern sea route . NEW DELHI Russia, that holds significant part of resource-rich Arctic region, has offered India access to the Northern Sea Route that connects Europe with the Pacific Rim including additional supplies of natural gas and joint development of gas fields to meet New Delhi’s growing energy needs. Russian President Vladimir Putin made this announcement here on Friday in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi while addressing a business summit. “…the Prime Minister and I discussed this earlier today; we welcome our Indian partners to join the work in the Arctic as well. This is a very promising, long-term and very serious project that looks decades ahead, one with good investment and good return. As the climate continues to change — in some places, this is good, and elsewhere perhaps not so good —the Northern Sea Route offers growing opportunities,” Putin said in his address. “We are building a nucleear-powered fleet, eight nucleear-powered ships, which will be steadily put into operation. This work is in progress. This will ensure reliable LNG supplies to the Indian and world markets. So this could be very interesting joint work,” he said. There was concrete reference to Indo-Russian partnership in the Arctic region in the joint statement issued after the annual summit on Friday. “The two governments also expressed support to companies from both sides ‘for development of cooperation and exploring opportunities for joint development’ of oil fields in Russian territory, including on the Arctic shelf, and projects on the shelf of the Pechora and Okhotsk Seas.” Putin and Modi also discussed a 2017 joint study on possible gas supply routes from Russia to India, sources told ET. 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% of this oil and virtually all of the natural gas. The most developed sector of the region, the Russian Arctic also holds abundant deposits of nickel, copper, coal, gold, uranium, tungsten, and diamonds. Putin assured “our country has been and will be a reliable energy supplier for the Indian economy”. He noted joint projects in the field of supplies of LNG are of stratgic importance.

Oil Drilling | Oil & Gas Animations
- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips - Geologists and geophysicists have agreed on the existence of a "prospect", a potential field. In order to find out if hydrocarbons are indeed trapped in the reservoir rock, we must drill to hit them. Bearing in mind the knowledge acquired about the substratum and the topography of the land, the best position for the installation of the drilling equipment is determined. Generally it is vertically above the point of maximum thickness of the geological layer suspected of containing hydrocarbons. The drillers then make a hole in conditions that are sometimes difficult. Of small diameter (from 20 to 50 cm) this hole will generally go down to a depth of between 2000 and 4000 meters. Exceptionally, certain wells exceed 6000 m. One of them has even exceeded 11 000 m! Certain fields can be buried at a depth equivalent to the height of 12 Eiffel Towers ... The derrick is the visible part of the drilling rig. It is a metal tower several tens of meters high. It is used to vertically introduce the drill strings down the hole. These drill strings are made up of metallic tubes screwed end to end. They transmit a rotating movement (rotary drilling) to the drilling tool (the drill bit) and help circulate a liquid called "mud" (because of its appearance) down to the bottom of the well. The drilling rig works like an enormous electric hand-drill of which the derrick would be the body, the drill strings the drive and the drilling tool the drill bit. The most usual tool is an assembly of three cones -- from which comes the name "tri cone" -- in very hard steel, which crushes the rock. Sometimes when the rock being drilled is very resistant, a single- block tool encrusted with diamonds is used. This wears down the rock by abrasion. Through the drill pipes, at the extremity of which the drill bit rotates, a special mud is injected, which the mud engineer prepares and controls. This mud cools the drill bit and consolidates the sides of the borehole. Moreover it avoids a gushing of oil, gas or water from the layer being drilled, by equilibrating the pressure. Finally, the mud cleans the bottom of the well. As it makes its way along the pipes, it carries the rock fragments (cuttings) to the surface. The geologist examines these cuttings to discover the characteristics of the rocks being drilled and to detect eventual shows of hydrocarbons. The cuttings, fragments of rock crushed by the drill bit, are brought back up to the surface by the mud. To obtain information on the characteristics of the rock being drilled, a core sample is taken. The drill bit is replaced by a hollow tool called a core sampler, which extracts a cylindrical sample of several meters of rock. This core supplies data on the nature of the rock, the inclination of the layers, the structure, permeability, porosity, fluid content and the fossils present. After having drilled a few hundred of meters, the explorers and drillers undertake measurements down the hole called loggings, by lowering electronic tools into the well to measure the physical parameters of the rock being drilled. These measures validate, or invalidate, or make more precise the hypotheses put forward earlier about the rocks and the fluids that they contain. The log engineer is responsible for the analysis of the results of the various loggings. The sides of the well are then reinforced by steel tubes screwed end to end. These tubes (called casings) are cemented into the ground. They isolate the various layers encountered. When hydrocarbons are found, and if the pressure is sufficient to allow them come to the surface naturally, the drillers do a flow check. The oil is allowed to come to the surface during several hours or several days through a calibrated hole. The quantity recovered is measured, as are the changes in pressure at the bottom of the well. In this way, a little more knowledge is gained about the probable productivity of the field. If the field seems promising, the exploration team ends the first discovery well and goes on to drill a second, even several others, several hundred or thousand meters further away. In this way, the exploration team is able to refine its knowledge about the characteristics of the field. The decision to stop drilling is made only when all these appraisal wells have provided sufficient information either to give up the exploration or to envisage future production. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like our Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/oilvips Twitter: https://twitter.com/oilvips And Don't forget to subscribe to our channel

The Largest Oil Rig in The World
Perdido is the deepest floating oil rig (platform) in the world at a water depth of about 2450 meters operated by the Shell Oil Company in the Gulf of Mexico. The Perdido is located in the Perdido fold belt which is a rich discovery of crude oil and natural gas that lies in water that is nearly 8000 feet deep. The platform's peak production will be 100,000 barrels of oil equivalent per day. At 267 meters, the Perdido is nearly as tall as the Eiffel Tower. An oil rig is a large structure with facilities to drill wells, to extract and process oil and natural gas, and to temporarily store product until it can be brought to shore for refining and marketing. In many cases, the platform contains facilities to house the workforce as well.

Russia Arctic military base: Arctic Trefoil military base strengthens strategic ambitions- TomoNews
ALEXANDRA LAND, RUSSIA — Russia’s Defence Ministry has released a “virtual tour” of the country's new Arctic military base. The Arkticheskiy Trilistnik or “Arctic Trefoil” base has been built on the Russian territory of Alexandra Land, an island in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago in the Arctic Ocean. The 14,000 sqm base is built on stilts, which are designed to help it withstand extreme cold weather that can reach as low as minus 40 degrees Celsius. The base will house 150 personnel on a 18-month period of duty. The main components of the base remain top-secret but the Russian military said the facility is equipped with a clinic, library, chapel, gym and cinema, according to BBC News. Military experts said the new base will help Russia to control international shipping on the Northern Sea Route and protect the country’s oil and gas resources in the Arctic. Russia is building four more military bases in the Arctic region. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Crying dog breaks the internet’s heart — but this sad dog story has a happy ending" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4prKTN9bYQc -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

Even during the Cold War the Arctic remained comparatively under-resourced by both adversarial blocs. The main theater was Europe, supporting theaters included the Mediterranean and the Middle East, but the Arctic was mainly visited by strategic nuclear platforms such as submarines and bombers which rehearsed their WW3 missions there. The end of the Cold War gradually raised the Arctic’s importance, and it did so for two reasons. The current multipolar power distribution means the addition of two independent or largely independent political actors, namely the EU and China, and the shifting of the global economic “center of gravity” eastward. This development is increasing Russia’s importance as the economic and political link between the EU and China. However, while the European and Asian economic powerhouses are exploring various forms of economic linkages with Russia serving as a vital component of the relationship, United States is actively seeking to drive a wedge between them by isolating the EU from Russia and therefore also China, and fully subordinating Europe to its economic and political interests. Whether the EU acquiesces to being merely a US protectorate or asserts its independence remains to be seen, however, in the meantime the Arctic is acquiring importance as a trade route linking Europe and Asia. The second reason for the Arctic’s importance is the presence of considerable reserves of energy resources in the region on which the global economy will depend. National control over these resources or lack thereof will in turn determine the power ranking of the country in question. And since we are increasingly in a world where “possession is 9/10ths of the law”, anyone seeking to access the Arctic and maintain permanent presence there will have to maintain a sizable force of icebreakers in order to ensure navigation in areas which are temporarily or permanently ice-bound. Each of interested powers already maintains an icebreaker fleet whose size and importance is only going to increase in the coming decades. #Arctic #Icebreakers #NorthernSeaRoute #RussianNavalPower #USNavalPower #NuclearIcebreakers #Warships #ChineseNavalPower

Navigating Arctic Resources: Preservation versus Exploitation
Navigating Arctic Resources: Preservation versus Exploitation Justin Strauss, Assistant Professor of Earth Sciences, Dartmouth College The circum-Arctic region remains one of the last unexploited wilderness areas on our planet. Despite tantalizing estimates of vast economic resources, scientists still lack consensus on some of the most fundamental aspects of the Arctic's geological evolution. As a result, this region has become an exploration frontier that will not only become more accessible with climate change, but also more economically viable as resources dwindle in other parts of the world. How do we intend to balance the continuous pressure for global economic growth versus the preservation of this unique wilderness? How will the Arctic’s rapidly changing climate affect this decision? This talk will attempt to set the framework for past and future exploration of the Arctic in order to motivate arguably one of the most important resource-based issues of our generation.

The Emerging Arctic
This video is part of the Council on Foreign Relations' InfoGuide Presentation, "The Emerging Arctic" : http://www.cfr.org/arctic Climate change, technological advances, and rising global demand for resources may unlock the considerable economic potential of the Circumpolar North in the 21st century. The melting of Arctic sea ice to record lows in recent years has prompted many nations, principally those with Arctic Ocean coastlines—the United States, Canada, Russia, Norway, and Denmark (Greenland)—to reassess their commitments and interests in the icy reaches atop the globe. Many forecast Arctic summers will be free of ice in a matter of decades, potentially opening the region up to hundreds of billions of dollars in investment, including energy production, shipping, and fishing. The thaw will also pose new security demands as greater human activity induces states to increase their military and constabulary presence. While most experts dismiss the prospects for armed aggression in the Arctic, some defense analysts and academics assert that territorial disputes and a competition for resources have primed the Arctic for a new Cold War. Meanwhile, environmentalists are concerned that a new era of Arctic exploration and development could spoil one of the planet's last great frontiers, a pristine habitat home to iconic wildlife and native communities that have subsisted there for thousands of years. Climatologists warn that the extraction of Arctic fossil fuels will contribute to global warming at a time when they believe nations should be paring back greenhouse-gas emissions and pursuing alternative energy sources. But for many, the debate is less over whether the region should be developed, but rather if it can be done sustainably and peaceably. The Arctic is emerging on the world stage, and it is not yet settled whether businesses, governments, and other operators can fully manage the unique risks it poses.

Prirazlomnoye oil field
The Prirazlomnoye oil field is situated 60km off the coast in the Pechora Sea. Recoverable reserves of oil at the deposit are in excess of 70 million tonnes. Gazprom Neft Shelf LLC is the project operator and subsurface licence holder. The Prirazlomnaya is a unique platform designed and built for Gazprom in Russia. The platform is intended for operation in extreme weather conditions, meets the strictest safety requirements and is capable of withstanding maximum ice loads. Extracted oil is stored in tanks situated in the platform caisson. Its three metre concrete walls are covered with a two-layer sheet of corrosion- and wear-resistant plated steel. The caisson has a capacity of approximately 94,000 tonnes of oil. The caisson's safety margin vastly exceeds actual loads. The platform also makes use of so-called "wet storage" of oil which prevents oxygen from entering containers, thereby preventing the accumulation of hazardous explosive mixtures. The platform has a zero discharge system that prevents drilling or production waste from being dumped into the sea. Waste is to be pumped into a special absorption well or, as necessary, collected in containers and transported to shore for subsequent disposal. #GazpromNeft Website: http://www.gazprom-neft.ru/
