Rate this:
Although it represents a crisis for planet Earth, the disappearance of Arctic sea ice is nothing less than a godsend for oil and gas companies. This program follows the research, drilling, and production activities of energy companies as they exploit newfound access to the floor of the Barents Sea. The film begins in Hammerfest, Norway - the northernmost town in the world and a booming hub of natural gas mining and trade. Next, viewers follow a massive mobile drilling rig as it prospects for gas-rich seabeds; a biostratigrapher charged with managing the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate's vast archive of drilling samples; and a top-brass gathering at the Russian company Gazprom as it prepares to explore the Shtokman gas field.
