The new cold war: The race for Arctic oil and gas - Counting the Cost
 
25:01
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. Al Jazeera's Charles Stratford went to the Wollo district in the country's northeast, an area generating a lot of interest among gemstone experts.

Economic race to extract Arctic resources

Some estimates suggest the Arctic holds around 13 percent of the world's undiscovered oil reserves and almost a third of its gas. That means great economic potential for the five different countries which claim territorial rights - Canada, Denmark, Norway Russia and the US. However, oil prices need to be around $80 per barrel to make production viable and environmental concerns are also expected to impact on drilling prospects. Al Jazeera's Erica Wood reports.

► Ice Race - Border Conflicts about OIL (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
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!

Cold Rush. Drilling For Oil Amid Arctic Ice
 
23:00
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.

Oil and Gas in the Arctic
 
01:02:44
The February 2014 London Lecture was by Alastair Fraser (Imperial College). In overcoming the technical challenges of oil production in the Arctic, are we making the most of a strategic resource or heading for an environmental and political minefield? The vast Arctic region is probably the last remaining unexplored source of hydrocarbons on the planet. Harnessing the considerable resources of the 'Final Frontier' is going to be fraught with many technical, political and environmental challenges that will engage many minds, both scientific and political over the next half century.

Political War For North Pole Oil and Gas Resources
 
09:40
There is an estimated 90 billion barrels of oil and huge amounts of natural gas in the Arctic Circle. Currently there is no legislative framework to outline which Northern countries have ownership of the resources, and the argument is predicted to be a political priority in the near future, possibly leading to military protection of areas of the Arctic which may be claimed by the few countries near the North Pole.

► Ice Race - Into the Unknown - the Story of the ARCTIC (FULL DOCUMENTARY)
 
49:00
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.

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...

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.

The Largest Oil Rig in The World
 
19:43
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.

London Lecture: Risk and Uncertainty in Exploration for Oil and Gas January 2017
 
01:06:22
The fundamental requirements for the entrapment of oil and gas are the presence of a mature source rock, migration of those hydrocarbons from there into a trap, which contains an effective reservoir rock and an appropriate seal. There may be a difference of many millions of years in age of the source, reservoir and seal horizons and the timing of hydrocarbon migration and juxtaposition of these rocks to form a trap is critical. Once formed, many traps may be destroyed or leak, due to later tectonics. When prospects are worked up and assessed, the overall “Chance of Success” is calculated on the basis of the probability of the presence and effectiveness of the source, reservoir and trap. This describes the overall ‘risk’ of finding hydrocarbons within the range estimated and this may vary from 10% in frontier basins to 30—50% in proven basins. There is also ‘uncertainty’, which describes the range of outcomes, even when, say the reservoir rock is found to be present. How thick is it? How porous and permeable? Is the original depositional facies as predicted? How connected is it across the prospect? There is also uncertainty even when hydrocarbons are found, as only a certain amount of appraisal wells can be afforded to establish the range of reserves, before making a multi-billion-dollar decision to develop the field. Above surface uncertainty also exists. The oil and gas business is a capital intensive, long term business. An oil or gas field may have a life of 5 to 50 years, depending on size and economics. There will be uncertainty of future oil price, government tax rates and in some cases, the future political stability of the host country. Environmental sensitivity, community relationships and ‘licence to operate’ are all key aspects which must also be assessed. And of course, the impact of fossil fuels on global warming and climate change, is now also a firm part of the context for any decisions, as the world needs to move to a lower carbon environment. Speaker: Malcolm Brown, President of the Geological Society After graduating from Kingston Polytechnic (1976), with a BSc in Geology, Malcolm worked in Libya and Saudi Arabia before completing an MSc in Petroleum Geology at Imperial College (1982). He worked at British Gas / BG Group for over 30 years as it evolved from state owned utility to successful international business and was Executive Vice President, Exploration. Malcolm became a Fellow in 1982, served on Council between 2009 and 2012 and became a Chartered Geologist in 2013. He took over as President of the Society in 2016.

Putin: There will be no battle for Arctic
 
02:55
It has some of the most-harsh conditions on the planet, but the Arctic is also among the most desirable. Its untapped resources of oil and gas are proving to be a great a source of temptation for several northern countries. That's why the best scientific minds and politicians have been in Moscow, trying to ensure cut-throat competition doesn't destroy conservation.

This is the video recording of the first panel of our webcast, "The Challenges and Opportunities of Arctic Energy and Resources Development."
Prirazlomnoye oil field
 
05:26
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 #ГазпромНефть #ДобычаНефти #Нефтянаяотрасль #НефтяныеМесторождения #Нефтепереработка #ГПН #GPN Website: http://www.gazprom-neft.ru/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/gazprom.neft Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/gazprom_neft.ru/ ВКонтакте: https://vk.com/gazprom_neft
