SUBSEA TRANSPORT OF ARCTIC OIL. A TECHNICAL AND ECONOMIC EVALUATION
Lawrence R. Jacobsen
The nuclear propelled submarine, as a cargo vessel for transport of Arctic crude oil, is discussed as an element of a subsea transport system. The submarine is presented as technically feasible and the paper concludes such a subsea system to be economically competitive with other transport modes for delivery of Northern Alaskan and Canadian Arctic crudes to North Atlantic and European markets.
