It was noted that the announcement could be made on Sunday (Monday, Moscow time) at the earliest. According to the agency’s interlocutors, the White House will announce a two-phase plan.

As part of the first chapter, Biden will ban drilling 3 million acres (1.2 million hectares) of the Arctic Ocean, closing other federal waters to oil exploration.

As part of the second part, the administration will develop new operating rules for more than 13 million acres (5.3 million hectares) in a large area known as the National Petroleum Reserve – Alaska.

Earlier media reported that the US administration decided to approve the development of oil in northwest Alaska, rejecting the environmentalists’ claims. ConocoPhillips will be allowed to drill at the Willow field, which can produce 180,000 barrels per day.

Environmental activists, who argue that with the development of the field, 280 million tons of greenhouse gases will be released into the atmosphere and push the world towards a “climate disaster”, are against the project.
