Polar Petroleum Potential

The global competition for energy is moving into the Arctic as we've seen bordering nations all making territorial claims. Now, AAPG and the Russian Geological Society (RosGeo) are holding the 3P conference (Polar Petroleum Potential) in Moscow at the end of September to examine the Pan-Arctic region, which may contain up to one-quarter of the world's undiscovered hydrocarbons.

The technical program will include regional sessions for:
  • Northern Canada — Mainland, Beaufort Sea, Arctic Islands
  • Alaska North Slope, Beaufort Sea, Chukchi Sea
  • North Atlantic Conjugate Margins
  • Baffin Bay — Labrador Sea
  • Norwegian Barents Sea
  • Laptev Sea, East Siberian Sea, Russian Chukchi Sea
  • Kara-Yamal Region
  • Russian Barents Sea and Timan Pechora
