Shoot: 10 YEARS BRENT SPAR - CLIPREEL UPDATE 2015

GP32D71
The Brent Spar was decommissioned in 1991 and the Spar's owners, oil company Shell, decided to sink it at the bottom of the North Atlantic. Greenpeace instigated a campaign that gained the support of thousands of people and after three months of protest Shell announced that it was no longer going to sink the Spar and instead towed it to Norway to be moored in a fjord, dismantled and recycled as the foundation for a new quay in Mekjarvik. Clipreel features footage from the GP occupation of the Brent Spar starting in April 1995; actions against Shell in Germany in May/June 1995; the towing and scrapping of the Spar in Erfjord, Norway in July 1995; recycling quay Mekjarvik in Stavanger, Norway, April 2005 ; Aerials from helicopter of North Sea oil fields with various oil rigs, March, April 2005; water sampling around Dunlin Platform in North Sea; statements by Angela Merkel CDU), former German Minister of Environment in German, May 1995
