ABSTRACT
The authors offer opinions environmental aspects of offshore petroleum and natural gas prospecting and production in Arctic regions. The environmental risks of such activities in the Arctic are said to far outweigh any possible economic benefits of increased petroleum and natural gas production. Increased political opposition to such drilling is said to exist in countries with territories in Arctic regions.
