【Abstract】The Arctic oil and gas potential, which is almost equivalent to that in the Middle East , has become an important part of the global energy strategy in the United States, Russia, the European Union and other countries. In Norway, Canada, Denmark ( Greenland) , it is also deemed as crucial to their sustainable
development of future economy and society. Aiming at the Arctic oil and gas resources, the Arctic coastal countries adopt different strategies such as "owned by me" and "used by me" . In fact , it w ill be a long struggle against control and anti-control of the Arctic oil and gas resources. The impact of the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico will not stay long on the Arctic oil and gas activity . It is an unchangeable trend that oil and gas activities in the Arctic will become more active in the long term.
