This report constitutes a preliminary investigation of the various modes for transporting Arctic oil to the continental U.S. Available information on pipelines, icebreaking tankers, and submarine tankers is reviewed and translated into a series of computer programs for estimating the transport costs of a given modal link. Various combinations of these links in conjunction with various conventional tanker links are investigated for four basic crude sources: North Slope Alaska, Onshore Canada, Canadian Islands, and Central Siberia.
