I have been asked to reply.

Stringent security measures apply at oil industry installations and civil nuclear sites and these are kept under regular review. We are reviewing these precautions in the light of the recent terrorist attacks in the United States.

It is not our policy to disclose details of security measures taken in connection with these facilities.
