Prirazlomnaya ice-resistant oil platform. The platform is located in the Prirazlomnoye oilfield, an offshore Arctic oilfield in the Pechora Sea, south of Novaya Zemlya, Russia. The single stationary platform is the first Arctic-class ice-resistant oil platform in the world, and the first commercial offshore oil development in the Arctic. It has generated considerable controversy because of the environmental risks of an Arctic oil spill.
