The Barents Sea Company Depot was a collection of buildings around the little harbour in Novy Odense, Lyra's world. It contained some administrative buildings, a hangar, workhouse, workshops, gas storage tanks and machinery. Lee Scoresby landed here in his balloon with little success, nearly scraping the hangar roof as he did so. They rented out spaces for storage and sold oil and gas. It was the depot of the Barents Sea Company and a tractor was located here.
