Erdöl aus der Arktis – träumen wir weiter

The real bottom line on the Arctic’s resources will not be known until it is drilled. But it doesn’t really matter that much. Even if it does turn out to contain three years‘ worth of oil and 16 years‘ worth of gas, those numbers are only useful as a rough way of estimating how much is ultimately recoverable. In reality, the production will be hardly noticeable, because it will take many decades to recover, at low flow rates, and it will be the most expensive oil and gas ever produced. And an unknown portion of it, perhaps 25%, might accrue to the U.S.
