About the Internship
The primary focus of the Internship will be to provide robust and compelling evidence based research regarding the economic and technical feasibility of extracting fossil fuels from the Arctic, and work alongside our Arctic team to analyse the geopolitical ramifications of such extraction and development of trade routes.
In addition, the successful candidate will be expected to provide logistical and administrative support to the Arctic team where necessary.
The research will involve developing evidence base on the following issues:
Manage and update existing evidence on which companies are extracting in the Arctic, the nature of the extraction, production estimate date and reserve estimates (proven and unproven)
Develop evidence regarding which companies have stakes in Arctic infrastructure
Develop analysis on the global economic and geopolitical drivers and trends of oil and gas in order to understand the consumers and demand for Arctic fossil fuels
Outline existing domestic regulation/subsidies impacting extraction
Research technological and innovation capacity and trends in Arctic drilling
Outline the technological, infrastructural and logistical challenges and costs associated with Arctic fossil fuel drilling’
