Shell Contracted Drillship.

Actor Lucy Lawless joins Greenpeace New Zealand activists in stopping a Shell-contracted drillship from departing the port of Taranaki for the remote Arctic, where its exploratory oil drilling programme threatens to devastate the Alaskan coastline. Six Greenpeace New Zealand activists, along with Lawless, famous for her roles in 'Xena: Warrior Princess' and 'Spartacus', board the vessel, scaled its 53 metre drilling derrick and are hanging banners from its summit, reading “Stop Shell” and “#SaveTheArctic.” They are equipped with survival gear and enough supplies to last for several days. 02/24/2012
