Chelsea under attack from Greenpeace

Just days before the kick off for the new Premier League campaign, Chelsea are facing a new opponent in the form of environmental campaigners Greenpeace.

Chelsea recently signed a sponsorship deal with Russian energy giant Gazprom, but according to a report released yesterday by a group of green NGOs the company may be acting illegally with its plans to begin drilling for oil in the Arctic.

The charge has been denied by an unnamed source close to the company.

Russia's state-owned Gazprom has installed a drilling platform in the Prirazlomnaya field, 60 kilometres offshore, from which it is hoping to extract hundreds of millions of barrels of oil in the coming years.
