‘Gas Kills’: Greenpeace targets France’s first FSRU

Activists with environmental group Greenpeace managed to scrawl ‘Gas Kills’ on the hull of a LNG floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) in a protest as the vessel arrived in Le Havre yesterday.

Greenpeace protesters in kayaks tried to block the entry of the giant 145,000 cu m Cape Ann yesterday, the first FSRU France has ever chartered in yet another sign of the changed energy flows across Europe in the wake of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. 

“This terminal must not be commissioned and the government must abandon all new fossil infrastructure projects and any plans to extend existing infrastructure,” Helene Bourges, head of Greenpeace France’s fossil fuel campaign, said.
