"Over the years, the Arctic Council has conducted a large amount of work on oil and gas issues in the Arctic. The U.S. chairmanship is of the view that the time has come to examine this body of work and determine how the Council orients itself as oil and gas activities have diminished and as renewable energy development has gained attention. The Council could examine whether there are any important gaps in the work that could be filled by new projects and initiatives."
