The Ocean Guardian semi-submersible drilling rig contracted from Diamond Offshore Drilling by Desire Petroleum floats in location for oil drilling some 150 km (93 miles) from the Falkland Islands in this February 19, 2010 file photo. Few people are tracking the ups and downs of the British companies looking for oil off the disputed Falkland Islands as closely as islanders themselves. The search for black gold in South Atlantic waters claimed by Argentina has even persuaded some residents to dabble in the stock market as they bet on a windfall that could guarantee their small community's prosperity for decades to come.
