AbstractThe search for hydrocarbons in the Arctic offshore has increased substantially in the last 15 years. The presence of large ice features separates the systems required in the Arctic from those available for other offshore areas. The ice environment and the interaction between ice and proposed exploration and production systems are briefly reviewed. Requirements of exploration and production are contrasted. A number of the systems proposed or actually realized are examined, with attributes or problems noted. Particular emphasis is placed on actual experience with exploration and production systems. Development has been careful, and significantly there have been no major problems resulting from ice.
