After Greenpeace today announced its activists had climbed aboard the Prirazlomnaya platform in the Pechora Sea offshore Russia, Offshore Energy Today asked Gazprom for a comment.
Gazprom’s Information Directorate has replied that: “Today Greenpeace representatives broke the 500-meter safety zone navigation offshore platform Prirazlomnaya and with the help of climbing equipment “hung” by its board. They were asked to go up to the platform for a constructive dialogue. But they refused, saying that “we will hang on the platform.”
The company has said that the works carried out on the platform are running according to plan.
