Abstract: The article is devoted to the use of chemical dispersion technology during the underwater oil pipelines accidents in the Arctic. Dependences of dispersion efficiency on salinity, viscosity, temperature and limitations of the use of dispersion depending on environmental conditions are given. The actuality of the use of underwater dispersion in the Arctic conditions is considered
