Oil and gas development and seabirds colonies in the Barents Region
Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
The Barents region is a highly explored area for gas and oil. The corresponding areas of oil exploration and sea bird colony proximity are clearly shown on the map. The disputed area between Norway and Russia is also highlighted. (Please note that the The Barents Euro-Arctic Council has expanded the membership since 1998)
