Police have climbed the drilling tower of a ship at Port Taranaki to try to persuade Greenpeace protesters to come down. The protesters, including actor Lucy Lawless, have spent a third night on the drilling tower of the Noble Discoverer.

Police say they have sent "a couple of officers" on to the Noble Discoverer.

"They have climbed the tower and are currently talking to the protesters to ask them again to come down," said Kim Perks, Central District Police Communications Manager.

Earlier, Shell said Greenpeace activists have been told this morning that the Noble Discoverer will be moved away from its berth for a short time and turned around in a routine operation to take on fuel.

The company says its primary concern remains the safety of all concerned and it is continuing its normal work on the vessel to the extent that safety allows.

"That work includes taking on fuel and the boat will be turned around to do this. This will be done safely and with the minimum disruption," Rob Jager, Chairman of Shell New Zealand said in a statement.

The main engine would not be started, but three pilot boats would slowly tow the Noble Discoverer out from the quay and, assisted by the vessel's propellers, turn it around before it returned to the same location to take on fuel.

The operation was expected to be completed in three to five hours and would be performed safely within Port Taranaki harbour, Jager said.
