Joe Biden is set to impose restrictions on extensive undertakings in Alaska, curtailing the scope of such initiatives in the region.


According to the Associated Press, citing a White House source, US President Joe Biden intends to cut off a large-scale oil project in Alaska.

An official statement from a member of the presidential administration is expected soon, presenting two parts of the new plan. Under the first part of the plan, Joe Biden would ban oil drilling in 3 million acres of the Arctic Ocean, closing the rest of federal waters to oil exploration. As part of part two, the administration will develop new rules for oil production in Alaska’s National Petroleum Reserve, covering more than 13 million acres.

Earlier it was reported that ConocoPhillips had been cleared to start oil production at the Willow field in northwest Alaska, which has sparked uproar from environmental activists who believe it will lead to the release of 280 million tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and will exacerbate the climate. disaster. However, according to the administration’s new plans, the scale of the project will be limited.
