First oil field  in the Bar­ents sea opens in 2013

The Nor­we­gi­an government has given per­mis­si­on to explo­it the oil field “Goli­at” with an esti­ma­ted 174 mil­li­on bar­rels oil north of Ham­mer­fest. Pro­duc­tion is sup­po­sed to start in 2013 under strict envi­ron­men­tal con­di­ti­ons. Goli­at will be the first Nor­we­gi­an oil field in the arc­tic Bar­ents sea; “Snøh­vit” which is alrea­dy in use is sole­ly a gas field.

Fos­sil fuels: future tech­no­lo­gy for the Arc­tic, at least accord­ing to Nor­we­gi­an plans
(this is the coal power plant in Bar­ents­burg, admit­ted­ly slight­ly pole­mi­cal)
