He is portrayed by Michael Caine.

Profile

Jennings is a dark-haired, exceedingly well-dressed and well-groomed English oil tycoon who owns Aegis Oil. He is a smooth talker and seasoned con man: in public he seethes false benevolence, presenting himself as a humanitarian and a champion of the environment; in private he is short-tempered, extremely pampered and verbally abusive. His chief of security, MacGruder, is equally reprehensible. He also berates MacGruder for killing Silook.

Jennings is almost supernaturally greedy and will do absolutely anything it takes to retain his oil rights in Alaska, including murdering his own workers, hiring mercenaries, manipulating the authorities, and cutting corners on his oil rigs to the point of ecological cataclysm. His reformed dirty deeds man Forrest Taft turns on him and rigs the faulty Aegis One oil rig to implode and go offline.

Jennings is killed when Taft drops him into a vat of his own oil, where he presumably drowns.
