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)
