In addition to the traditional navigation in the ice-infested waters the development of the new offshore hydrocarbon deposits is planned. New production and uploading platforms and high-tonnage tankers appear in the Arctic. Widening of the sea activities in the Arctic, the implementation of comprehensive technical projects and the need to ensure their safety made it necessary to develop and introduce principally new information and logistics system - a system aimed at ?managing ice conditions? or the so-called ?Ice Management? (IM). The vast experience of the informational support of the ice navigation is accumulated in Russia, many components of the IM are developed and implemented in the active practice. The paper presents the summary of such experience. The concept of development the IM on the Shtokman Gas Condensate Field is discussed.}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {Maritime Safety, Weather Navigation, Arctic Navigation, Arctic Waters, Hydrometeorological Aspect, Ice Navigation, Ice Management, Sea Activities} }
