Action Against Gazprom's Arctic Drilling

Photo | 7 September, 2012

Greenpeace activists in inflatables are sprayed with hoses by Gazprom workers. A team of activists have attached themselves to the anchor chain of the Anna Akhmatova, a Gazprom passenger vessel. The team is preventing the ship from lifting anchor and sailing to the Prirazlomnaya oil platform to complete the work that will allow them to begin drilling in this fragile region. Gazprom looks set to begin full commercial drilling operations by early next year, becoming the first ever company to start commercial oil production in the offshore Arctic.08/27/2012
