The New Trends in Russian Energy Policy following Third Presidency of Putin

The Arctic operations to tap up to 160 billion barrels of undiscovered oil could require an estimated 250-400 billion USD. Continue reading

Kuzey Kutup Dairesi’nin kuzey bölgesinin; dünyadaki keşfedilmemiş petrolün yaklaşık olarak %13’ünü, keşfedilmemiş doğalgazın %30’unu ve (sulu doğalgaz ve kaya gazı ile petrolü gibi geleneksel olmayan kaynaklar hariç) keşfedilmemiş sıvı doğalgazın %20’sini içerdiğini hesapladılar ve iklim değişikliklerinin gerçekleşmesi halinde kutup buzullarının erimesi sonucunda bu kaynaklara erişmek mümkün. 160 milyar varile varan keşfedilmemiş petrolü işletmeye başlatmak için yapılan Kutup operasyonları tahmini olarak 250-400 milyar dolar gerektirebilir.
