The development of the Arctic plays a huge role in the development of industry aimed at mining. The Arctic climate is extremely harsh and has its own characteristics for each specific field. Therefore, when developing a project for its development, it is necessary to take into account all existing features in order to make correct strength calculations in the future, choose the most rational method of transporting raw materials, and also select the necessary equipment. Correct consideration of unfavorable factors contributes to an increase in the level of reliability of a structure, as well as to a decrease in the likelihood of an accident at an operating facility. In the course of the work, the criteria necessary for this were identified and a block diagram was developed for choosing the optimal method for transporting produced products from the Arctic fields using the example of the Dolginskoye field.
