Extraction activities and disputed areas in the Barents Sea
Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Norway and the Russian federation are currently disagreeing on the exact definition of their respective zones in the Barents Sea. The cause of the dispute is based on the special status that Svalbard has, as an International territory, under Norwegian stewardship - in some ways similar to Antarctica. The disputed is expected to be solved through bilateral agreements. The Barents Sea is currently a hot area for developing new sites for extraction of oil and gas - the map highlights the Snøhvit, Goliat and Shtokman fields. Note that the designations used on this map do not imply official endorsement or acceptance by the United Nations, UNEP or UNEP/GRID-Arendal.
