Environmental activists climb aboard Equinor drilling rig in Arctic

OSLO, April 29 (Reuters) - Greenpeace activists climbed on Monday aboard a Seadrill drilling rig commissioned by Equinor to explore for oil and gas in the Norwegian Arctic, the group told Reuters.

Four activists climbed aboard the West Hercules rig, said the organisation. The vessel is anchored off Hammerfest, continental Europe's northernmost town and the site of an Equinor liquefied natural gas plant, Snoehvit. (Reporting by Gwladys Fouche, editing by Terje Solsvik)
