THE ARCTIC: The World’s New Economic Frontier and Opportunity for Development, Shipping, and Expansion
Ernst G. Frankel, MIT
The Arctic (Figure 1) has become the latest and possibly most attractive of development areas on earth and not just because of the immense, largely untapped resources that are becoming increasingly accessible, but also for the opportunities for shorter sea routes and greater accessibility to markets. Although much of the Arctic sea routes are still only accessible part of the year and usually requires special ice-class vessels as well as ice-breaker escort, more and more operators are taking advantage of the huge savings in fuel and travel time between major trading areas such as the Europe/U.S. East and West Coast and East Asia or NW Europe/East Asia trades.
