Drilling in Iceberg Alley

Invited by the Government of Greenland, Cairn and a number of other international oil companies were granted licences to explore for oil and gas offshore Greenland. In 2012 the Greenpeace ship Esperanza followed Cairn's activities in Baffin bay. The Danish government sent two naval warships to the area to monitor the presence of the NGO and protect the interests of the oil company.
