Subject area is also treated as a home for the largest wild-life preserve of the American nation - ANWR, standing for the Arctic National Wild-life Refuge, where numerous exploration companies are pushing to drill today. This film is an extremely interesting one and is highly recommended to all people with the interest in oil exploration and production.
