James C Walters, "The Natural History of an Arctic Oil Field: Development and the Biota. Edited by Joe C Truett and Stephen R Johnson," The Quarterly Review of Biol no. 1 (March ): Panarctic Oils was formed in as a result of the Canadian government's eagerness to encourage exploration of the Canadian Arctic islands and to assert Canadian sovereignty in the region. That company consolidated the interests of 75 companies and individuals with Arctic Islands land holdings plus the Federal government as the major played an important part in the development Headquarters: Calgary, Alberta. Canada. Extensive drilling was done in the Canadian Arctic during the s and s by such companies as Panarctic Oils Ltd., Petro Canada and Dome wells were drilled at billions of dollars of cost, approximately billion barrels ( × 10 ^ 6 m 3) of oil and trillion cubic feet ( × 10 ^ 9 m 3) of natural gas were found.. These discoveries were insufficient.

Through this book, Banerjee wanted to show why this area should be forever set aside and left undeveloped. He succeeded. This book is particularly recommended to those who aren't aware of or don't understand the reasons to oppose the drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Range: £ - £ @article{osti_, title = {History of Arctic Slope oil exploration}, author = {Mull, G.}, abstractNote = {Discovery of the Prudhoe Bay giant oil field has made impacts on all Alaskans, for better or worse. Revenues from hydrocarbon production there account for about 85% of Alaskas total unrestricted revenues and are building a fund in which all Alaskans will share in the future. Arctic Oil and Natural Gas Provinces Map: The United States Geological Survey estimates that over 87% of the Arctic's oil and natural gas resource (about billion barrels oil equivalent) is located in seven Arctic basin provinces: Amerasian Basin, Arctic Alaska Basin, East Barents Basin, East Greenland Rift Basin, West Greenland-East Canada Basin, West Siberian Basin, and the Yenisey. A History of Oil in the Arctic Today in Alaska, the vast majority of oil from the state's Arctic region comes from on-shore drilling wells. Most of the oil comes from the 'North Slope,' referring to the land adjacent to the Chukchi and Beaufort Seas down to the Brooks Mountain Range .
