An investigation by Swedish Radio news shows that there is strong support for plans to begin drilling test holes for oil in the Baltic Sea.

The Swedish company Oljeprospektering applied to the government for permission to bore two test holes off the cost of Gotland.

Greenpeace have criticised the plans saying the Baltic is an extremely sensitive marine environment that is already under pressure from other industrial activities.

The company say they have a 30 percent chance that the test holes will show positive results. They estimate to find 350 barrels of oil worth up to 16 billion U.S. dollars.
