The Ocean Guardian oil rig is Falkland Islands waters since February 2010 prepares to leave the Islands in early 2012 for a contract with another operator.

Desire Petroleum announced that the contract with Diamond Offshore Drilling has been amended. The contract now says that an “undefined number of optional wells may be drilled up the 1st of March 2012”.

    Colonial British officials: Tim, Emma, Glen and Bill are joining the Ocean Guardian. After all it is easy to jump a sinking ship...

    Marcos Plonker - You never learn do you - well truth is you do not like truth nor reality - only Argentine fantasy!
    Tim Thorogood is an employee of the elected members of the legislature - he workkd for FI Govt - not UK. He was recruited from UK by our Govt - not sent here!
    He is indeed British probably English- but Colonialism as you know it died about the time he was born - except in your mind of course.

    The others happen to be Islanders!! (well am not 100% sure where Emma was born but her mother is an Islander and she has lived here for many years).
    Plonker!
