The Falkland Islands Government has announced that an updated version of the FIG Oil Readiness Checklist is now available online. The checklist refers to key areas from the FIG ongoing program for the development of the hydrocarbons industry as it grows into a production phase.

A spokesperson for the government said: The checklist was first created to summarize activities, progress and responsibilities in key areas arising from the Government's ongoing program of activities to prepare for the development of the hydrocarbons industry as it grows into a production phase. The Checklist has been regularly revised and updated to reflect progress being made against each action. It remains a 'living' document and will continue to be published on a quarterly basis.“

The latest update includes details of a new initiative to map the oil industry supply chain and identify gaps and opportunities for Falklands' businesses and people. A Chamber of Commerce initiative, it was funded by FIG.

FIG's Head of Policy, Jamie Fotheringham commented: ”As part of FIG's Oil Readiness planning, the checklist remains an important tool in ensuring that the Falkland Islands is ready for new exploration and production activities in the hydrocarbons industry. We are pleased to be able to provide the Checklist online following the launch of the new FIG website.”

    Will the future see South America's richest country in the Falklands next to one of its poorest, Argentina?

    What is the shortest distance in a boat an economic refugee has to travel to the Islands?
