The Research Centre for Arctic Petroleum Exploration, ARCEx, is a research collaboration between academia (6 universities and 4 research institutes) and industry (8 energy companies) with support from the Research Council and Norwegian authorities. Through a common effort, we contribute to the understanding of the geology and resource potential of the high north, we develop new geophysical exploration techniques suitable for the Arctic, and we develop new models for environmental risk connected to operations in the north. Education and training is an integrated part of ARCEx.
