In Oslo, the Minister of Oil and Energy receives a threatening letter: an oil rig will sink if the development of the Troll area does not end immediately. Soon after Canton Driller sinks. Sabotage, or a mere coincidence? A few days later the Minister receives another threatening letter: another oil rig is at risk of going down if demands are not met.
