The Russian application to the United Nations to expand the Russian border in the Arctic includes 1,2 million square meters. km

Head of the Laboratory of the Institute of Oil and Gas Geology and Geophysics, Dean of the Geological and Geophysical Faculty of the Novosibirsk State University Valery Vernikovsky, who participated in the preparation of the document, believes that the consideration by the UN Commission of the Russian application for the expansion of the continental shelf in the Arctic Ocean will take several years

The Russian application to the United Nations to expand the Russian border in the Arctic includes 1,2 million square meters. km
In August last year, Russia submitted a request to the United Nations to expand the border in the Arctic. The updated application included the Lomonosov Ridge, the Mendeleyev Uplift, the Podvodnik Basin, the southern extremity of the Gakkel Ridge and the North Pole area. The total area of ​​territories claimed by Russia reaches 1,2 million square meters. Km. According to the Ministry of Natural Resources of the Russian Federation, hydrocarbon resources in excess of 5 billion tons of equivalent fuel can be identified in this territory.

As noted by Interfax, studies conducted by the Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics showed that the age of rocks obtained by drilling the Mendeleyev Ridge is more than 460 - 470 million years, whereas previously these breeds were considered younger.

Accordingly, the Mendeleev Ridge is a continuation of the Eurasian continent, that is, refers to the continental crust. The same, according to him, is also evidenced by the reconstruction of the motion of continental plates by geophysical methods.

Other Arctic countries also claim to expand their borders in the Arctic Ocean. In particular, Denmark has also submitted its application to the UN. At the same time, a part of the territories declared by these countries coincides with the territories claimed by Russia.

"After submitting the application, there will be considerable work in the subcommittee, which will examine in detail each section of the application, attracting experts. Similar applications in the UN Commission are considered 2-3 year ", - quoted V.Vernikovskogo press service NSU.
