The inflatable is supporting a team of activists who have attached themselves to the anchor chain of the Anna Akhmatova, a Gazprom passenger vessel. The team is preventing the ship from lifting anchor and sailing to the Prirazlomnaya oil platform to complete the work that will allow them to begin drilling in this fragile region. Gazprom looks set to begin full commercial drilling operations by early next year, becoming the first ever company to start commercial oil production in the offshore Arctic.Locations:Arctic-Pechora Sea-RussiaDate:27 Aug, 2012Credit:© Denis Sinyakov / GreenpeaceMaximum size:5616px X 3744pxKeywords:Chaining actions-Confrontation-Copy space-Gazprom-Greenpeace activists-Greenpeace inflatables-KWCI (GPI)-Manual workers-Occupation actions-Oceans (campaign title)-Offshore drilling-Oil (fossil fuel)-Oil (Industry)-Oil drilling-Oil rigs-Outdoors-Prirazlomnaya oil platform-Save the Arctic (campaign title)-Ships-Spraying-Water-Water cannons-Wide angleShoot:'Save the Arctic' Barents Sea TourThe campaign to save the Arctic continues in Russia and in the Barents Sea.
