The Arctic

The entire Arctic is estimated to hold as much as 90 billion barrels of oil and 1,669 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, or 22% of the world’s undiscovered conventional resources. Eighty-four percent of these hydrocarbons are expected to lie offshore, and Alaska's continental shelf is thought to have the biggest oil reserves.

The Kenai LNG Plant on the Kenai Peninsula was the first—and for more than 40 years, the only—liquefied natural gas export terminal in the United States.
