- Norway's government says it has established a 500-meter safety zone around the site in the Barents Sea where Statoil (STO) is set to drill one of the world's northernmost wells; Greenpeace says the move is illegal.
- A Greenpeace ship is still blocking the site after arriving yesterday ahead of STO's Transocean Spitsbergen rig which was headed there; Norwegian authorities had previously removed protesters who had boarded the rig itself earlier this week.
- The rig is intended to drill the Apollo well ~175 km from the Bear Island nature reserve and 300 km north of Norway's mainland, in international waters.
