The drilling boom in the Barents Sea off Norway’s north coast has produced a new type of technology that could help oil and gas exploration, but also help keep drilling waters free of pollution.
Barents is an Arctic Ocean region that’s home to a large and diverse range of marine life.
It has been home to thousands of whales, dolphins, walruses and seals since its formation around 10,000 years ago.
But the region is also the home to the biggest offshore oil and natural gas reserves in the world.
A lot of that gas has already been released into the sea, but the oil and chemicals are not well known, according to scientists and conservationists.
That has left a lot of scientists to wonder what might be lurking in the sea.
The world’s biggest oil spill, a BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico in 2005, had some of the most severe impacts on marine life in the region.
Scientists now believe that Barent’s oil spill may have been caused by the release of some of those chemicals, and that some of them may have contributed to a wave of pollution in the ocean.
“The problem is that the oil that spilled is not just one piece of oil, but it’s the very core of what’s left of the world’s oceans,” said Dr. Joanne Legg, a marine biologist with the University of Bristol, who is one of the experts involved in the research.
Legg told the Associated Press that while the chemicals released into Barent waters during the BP oil disaster are known, the results have not been fully studied.
She said she hopes to have more data from the research team soon.
“There is a lot that we don’t know about the chemicals,” Legg said.
“There are a lot more questions that need to be answered.”
The research team is currently looking for more research in the area, and they’re looking to see if the chemicals that were released could affect wildlife.
“If we can determine the effects of the chemicals, then we can make more informed decisions about what to do with that oil in a sustainable way,” LeGG said.
The study, which is published in the journal Nature Communications, will be published soon.
