A British company searching for oil off the Falkland Islands in the South Atlantic says it has made further significant finds.
The company, Rockhopper Exploration, said it expected to start pumping oil by 2016.
It said it would need $2bn (£1.3bn) to develop the field.
The search for oil off the Falklands has angered Argentina, which claims sovereignty over the islands it calls Las Malvinas.
On Wednesday Rockhopper said it had found further oil in its Sea Lion prospect.
