The Arctic: Territory of Modern Energy
29 March 2017
13:30

The rise in global living standards and industrial output, the fight against energy poverty, and the increasing need for diversified energy sources are the key factors contributing to global demand for hydrocarbons. Its enormous fossil fuel reserves, in combination with the development of modern technologies in the fields of energy, transport, and environmental protection, enable the Arctic to be viewed as a key centre for hydrocarbon extraction. Issues for discussion: • What overall share of the Russian and global markets could Arctic hydrocarbons represent? • What challenges does the development of the Arctic pose for the global community? • How much investment is required in the economy of the Arctic regions of the Russian Federation? • In what fields must international scientific and technological collaboration be intensified to provide fresh, strong impetus to Arctic development? • Addressing current issues of energy supply to the Arctic regions through resolving hydrocarbon extraction challenges in the same regions
