Royal Dutch Shell Plc (RDSA) will suspend exploration drilling off French Guiana until 2015 after three unsuccessful wells, according to a partner in the project.

“The energy markets have evolved since we started the project in 1982,” said Kelly op de Weegh, a Shell spokeswoman. “We are exiting our Colorado project to focus on other opportunities.” read more

Russia’s Investigative Committee, modelled on the FBI, will question the activists. Six Britons are among them.

Their ship, the Arctic Sunrise, is being towed to the port of Murmansk.

Committee spokesman Vladimir Markin said “all those who assaulted the platform, regardless of nationality, will be prosecuted”. read more
