Hydrocarbon reserves in the area of the undersea Lomonosov Ridge in the Arctic may total about five billion tonnes of equivalent fuel
Hydrocarbon reserves in the area of the undersea Lomonosov Ridge in the Arctic may total about five billion tonnes of equivalent fuel, Russia’s Natural Resources Minister Yuri Trutnev said on Thursday, as he looked back on the results of Russia’s recent research expedition Arctic-2007. “That expedition made it possible to formulate Russia’s request for the Lomonosov Ridge as part of its sea shelf,” Trutnev said. “There are enough facts to file an application for declaring the Lomonosov Ridge as Russia’s economic zone. The application will be formulated and we shall conduct a dialogue with international organizations.” Trutnev said there was “no sharp response” to the expedition from the international community. “We heard no angry comments. There were responses from some big countries, including the United States, which stepped up their studies of the world ocean,” Trutnev said. Earlier, the Natural Resources Ministry said that according to preliminary analysis of the earth crust’s model the structure of the Lomonosov Ridge’s crust is identical to the crust of the Lomonosov Ridge, which indicates it is part of Russia’s continental shelf. The package of arguments will be finalized by December 1, 2007.
