Scientific Drilling in the Arctic Ocean : a summary document to encourage Academic and Industry collaboration : January 2011

By Dayton Dove and Sasha Leigh

Abstract

Drilling in the Arctic has been prevented by many factors, but\ud none more significant than the presence of perennial ice cover.\ud The ice cover also impedes the acquisition of geophysical data\ud that underpins any drilling proposal, and the hypotheses on\ud which they are based; not to mention the geophysical site–survey\ud investigations necessary to ensure safe drilling operations.\ud Whereas Industry has demonstrated capability drilling in near–\ud shore environments around the perimeter of the Arctic Ocean, due\ud to environmental limitations very little drilling has been attempted in\ud the central Arctic Ocean
