Court bans Greenpeace from boarding Shell’s North Sea installations

Oil major Shell has won a court order against Greenpeace aimed at preventing environmentalists from boarding the company’s oil installations in the North Sea.

In October 2019, Greenpeace protested on the Shell-operated Brent field in the North Sea against the company’s plans to leave parts of old oil structures with 11,000 tonnes of oil in the North Sea.

Following reports that Shell has won the injunction, Offshore Energy Today has reached out to Shell seeking confirmation and further details about the order.
