The risks of deepwater drilling: a work on environmental issues, and an investigation extending from Belgium to the Pacific.
Brussels in the spring of 2021: Silke Huysmans and Hannes Dereere are speaking via a satellite connection with three vessels in the Pacific Ocean. One belongs to a Belgian mining company with a robot prospecting the seabed. The operation is being closely followed by scientists aboard the second vessel. And the third vessel is carrying Greenpeace protesters. The scene is set for Out of the Blue, showing conflicting approaches to industrial-scale deepwater drilling.
