According to the U.S. Geological Survey, 40 percent of the world’s untapped oil and natural gas reserves are in the Arctic or in very deep water. Last year’s Deepwater Horizon spill cast in stark relief how technologies developed for drilling through 1000 feet or less of sea can perform poorly and unpredictably in deeper waters..
