 "Searching for monsters at the ends of the earth"
Very large oil and gas fields have been discovered and will be discovered in the Arctic Ocean.  These large fields are strategic necessities for large oil and gas companies, such as ExxonMobil and Shell. In addition to being large, the technical complexity of developing large oil and gas fields allows the large firms to fully exploit their strong technology/financial  capabilities.

Particularly notable is how much larger the Chukchi Sea acreage position of the  ExxonMobil-Rosneft partnership is in comparison to that of Shell and the other interest owners in US waters. Further, it is apparent, especially with the large Burger discovery, as well as the discoveries in the Pechora/Barents Sea areas of Russia, that very large oil and gas fields exist in the continental margins of the Arctic Ocean, be it the Kara Sea, Laptev Sea, or the Chukchi Sea.

ExxonMobil in 2013 indicated in a presentation prepared for investors that its Arctic Ocean initiative with Rosneft involved a total of 181 million acres of oil and gas development rights in some of the most prospective oil and gas areas in the world.  If the initiative were a country, it would rank between Mozambique and Turkey in size, making it the 37th largest country in the world.

This initiative is being pursued in partnership with Rosneft, the Russian state oil company.

In 2014, the ExxonMobil-Rosneft partnership announced the drilling of the University well (also called Universitetskaya-1 by the Russians), in the East-Prinovozemelskiy-1 (EPZN-1) block, which is adjacent to and runs parallel to the Novaya Zemlya island

According to Rosneft, the well:
 - Is the northern most in the world
 - Discovered 100 million tons of oil and 338 bcm of gas, or roughly 720 million barrels, and 11 TCF of natural gas

Per information supplied by ExxonMobil, there are at least 50 similarly sized prospects in the Kara Sea acreage blocks of EPZN-1, EPZN-2, adn EPZN-3.
