    As i have been working on the ocean guardian for the past 5 years i must say that your information about the length of time that the rig will be down in the Fawklands is slightly wrong, the actual contract is for 1 year with options for a following extra years work. Although the extra years work is down to whether we find any oil or gas in the first 8 wells.
