How to drill in the Arctic?

The theme of ecology in the context of the Arctic is quite a delicate one. The ecosystem of the region is quite fragile. And environmentalists are predicting global warming for us, as a result of which the area of ​​ice cover, although slowly, is decreasing. This means that the energy resources of the Arctic are becoming more accessible for development, and the struggle of the polar countries is intensifying. And here are some organizations - as stated in the publication, a link to which you will find below - and completely refuse drilling in the Arctic. Nevertheless, I believe that it is necessary to harness the rich energy potential of the region. But - this should be done wisely. By the way, Russia considers the issue of minimizing environmental risks during oil production a priority, and is constantly improving technology in this area. So how should you act so as not to harm the ecology of the region?
