The Policy Unit co-ordinates the work of the FIG Oil Readiness Group to ensure that all Falkland Islands legislative and regulatory issues are fully addressed and fit for purpose for the emergent hydrocarbons industry in the Islands. The Policy Unit also aim to maximise the opportunities for local businesses and people to benefit from current oil and gas exploration activity and any future exploration, development or production activity.

The Policy Unit also provides strategic research on the possible impacts of the proposed oil developments and how the oil industry will affect the Islands socially, economically and environmentally.
