Oil Rig Begins Journey to Falklands

A tug boat set sail on 24 November to haul a North Sea oil and gas exploration rig from Invergordon, a deep water port in the Scottish Highlands, on its 62-day journey to the Falkland Islands.  The Ocean Guardian rig will be used by Desire Petroleum to explore reserves in the North Falkland Basin.  The company expects the semi-submersible to remain off the Islands until next August, when it would be towed back to Invergordon.
