Ice Endangers Offshore Arctic Operations
Ice management is a complex and critical component of any oil and gas program envisioned for Arctic OCS waters. A successful ice management program must be carefully constructed to reflect environmental conditions in the particular geographic location for the intended operation, and it must be developed in accordance with regulatory rules in effect for the specific geographic location of intended operations.
Clearly, having the right expertise to develop and implement an ice management plan is as important as having the right assets to do the work intended, but ice management expertise is not widely available, particularly in the U.S. for U.S. Arctic OCS Territorial Waters.
