Gazprom to delay drilling in the Arctic

Good news! Gazprom has announced they are going to delay the start of their oil extraction in the Prirazlomnoye field, in the Arctic Ocean. This comes just a few days after Shell announced they wouldn’t drill in Alaska this year.

Last month Greenpeace activists climbed the side of Prirazlomnaya, Gazprom’s floating oil platform in the Pechora Sea, to protest about oil drilling in the Arctic.

Both Gazprom and Shell will try to start drilling again next year, so ask your family and friends to sign the Save the Arctic petition.
