Activists on board the Greenpeace ship Esperanza documented a large methane leak located in the British exclusive economic zone (position 57°55.41'N, 001°37.95'E) in the North Sea. Caused by a major blow-out incident during a gas drilling operation 30 years ago, the leak is still emitting the highly potent greenhouse gas methane. This investigation is part of Greenpeace ships Esperanza and Rainbow Warriors month-long documentation and peaceful protest tour in the North Sea. Teams on board gather evidence of the extreme industrialization of the region by the oil and gas industry, which has been polluting the ocean, fuelling the climate crisis and exacerbating inequality with its “business as usual". 
In original language: 
Untersuchung eines Methan-Lecks in der Nordsee 
Greenpeace-Aktivistinnen an Bord des Schiffes Esperanza haben ein durch die Öl- und Gasindustrie verschuldetes Methan-Leck im britischen Sektor der Nordsee dokumentiert (Position 57°55.41‘N, 001°37.95’E). Aus dem Leck entweicht hochwirksames Treibhausgas. Der Krater am Meeresboden entstand bei Bohrungen nach Öl und Gas. Seit 30 Jahren treten dort große Mengen des Gases aus. Diese Untersuchung ist Teil einer einmonatigen Dokumentations und Protesttour der Greenpeace-Schiffe Esperanza und Rainbow Warrior in der Nordsee. Teams an Bord sammeln Beweise für die extreme Industrialisierung der Region durch die Öl- und Gasindustrie, die mit ihrem "business as usual" die Ozeane verschmutzt, die Klimakrise anheizt und die Ungleichheit verschärft.
