Shell is taking Greenpeace to court

From our editor: 25 November 2019

Oil company Shell demands a ban on Greenpeace protests at its Brent oil field.

The step follows earlier actions by the environmental group in the North Sea. In mid-October, protesters climbed the abandoned remains of a drilling platform.

Greenpeace demands that Shell remove these parts. According to Greenpeace, there are still more than 11,000 tonnes of oil in the structures, which will eventually come into the sea if they are left behind.

Shell confirms the legal process.

According to the oil company, Greenpeace is breaking the law with its actions. This prohibits unauthorized persons from arriving within 500 meters of the collisions.

Moreover, the safety of the activists themselves would be at stake with the storms.
