Abstract: This paper argues that there is a discrepancy between political rhetoric and public debate o none side and commercial evaluations of the viability of the Arctic as an energy region on the other side. Industry interest in parts of the Arctic is slightly on the increase, but it is fragile rather than robust, and one should not take for granted that activity in offshore areas will surge in the near future. Much will depend on uncertain variables such as the oil price, political framework conditions, technological developments, global demand and developments in other energy regions.

The paper also asks if the Arctic as such should be treated as one energy region, or whether it makes more sense to talk about various prospective sub-regions of the Arctic and how and when these may be expected to contribute to global energy security. Finally, the paper adds a sobering note to expectations that the development of new Arctic petroleum fields will provide importing countries with increased diversification of supply. If diversification means diversification by country, this may turn out to be the case only to a limited degree. The reason is that the major part of the petroleum resources is expected to be under undisputed Russian control. The reality may be diversification by regions rather than by producing states.
