Shell has warned it could miss a window to drill for oil in the Arctic this summer, if six Greenpeace activists occupying a rig under contract to the company are not removed, court filings by the oil company reveal.

“Left unsanctioned, Greenpeace USA’s illegal and tortious actions will, as Greenpeace USA intends, delay and/or prevent Shell from transporting vessels, facilities, supplies, and personnel to the Chukchi Sea, and from conducting federally permitted exploration drilling activities on Shell-owned United States OCS oil and gas leases, during the brief 2015 open water season in the Arctic Ocean.”
