The article deals with the participation of the Northern Kingdom in the Arctic. The United Kingdom is a Maritime power, known primarily through an extensive trading system, as well as a member of the UN security Council, one of the main observers in the Arctic Council. Great Britain as observer country cannot claim the extraction and exploitation of fossil resources, but is actively showing interests in the development of the Arctic region. In addition, the UK is geographically close to the Arctic region. The United Kingdom is an important actor in the development of the Arctic. The greatest interest in the Albion (as well as other States) called Northern hydrocarbon resources. Great Britain is an oil and gas producing country, which in recent years has faced a shortage of raw materials. It is for this reason that Britain is forced to establish close cooperation with the most full - fledged strange of this region, namely with Russia. However, the specificity of London lies in the desire to abstract from Moscow politically, but the British oil and gas corporations on the contrary is aimed to work closely in the extraction of oil and gas with Moscow. It is this problem that causes disputes over the "exploration of the Arctic" both in the Northern Kingdom and abroad.
