Protest Against Arctic Oil Shipment in Rotterdam

Greenpeace activists protest against the world's first shipment of Arctic oil in the harbour of Rotterdam. In the previous days Greenpeace has been tracking the shipment carried by the Russian tanker Mikhail Ulyanov. The oil has been produced at the Prirazlomnaya platform in the Pechora Sea. The platform is operated by Russian state owned energy company Gazprom and is the first to begin producing oil from icy offshore waters in the Arctic.
