Oil Preparations Impress Security Consultant

A British Foreign and Commonwealth security consultant who spent a week in the Islands earlier this month appeared “impressed with the facilities and emergency plans that are in place for such a small country,” according to Director of Minerals and Agriculture Phyl Rendell.  Fred Rokkita’s work will assist the Falkland Islands Government to progress the drilling of offshore exploration wells.  He met with Members of the Legislative Assembly in order to discuss the physical security of rigs and vessels as well as operational security in terms of logistics.  Members were able to assure Mr Rokkita that all of the issues he had been tasked with examining were being looked at already by the Falkland Islands Government.  For more information visit
