Case Study: International Cable System Permitting Consultancy Services

Pelagian were contracted to provide permitting and regulatory services to a major International Cable System project, working on behalf of the cable installer and system owners.
The work scope consisted of data gathering for countries in Europe, the Mediterranean and the Far East segments of the cable system.
Challenges included the negotiations with French authorities on landing point selection and the crossing of areas of Posidonia Seagrass and sensitive negotiations in Thailand where the cable is planned to pass through a protected area. These negotiations informed both government and the cable owners of the specific requirements to minimise environmental impact to achieve a successful cable route.

Case Study: Main One Permitting Consultancy Services

Pelagian were contracted to provide permitting and regulatory services to the Main One Cable System project, working on behalf of the cable installer and system owners.
The work scope consisted of detailed in-country data gathering at a diplomatic level in all but one of the North and West African countries from Morocco to Nigeria and development of the data into a sophisticated permit management system which was used to track the requirements, progress and costs associated with each country.
The permit work encompassed detailed knowledge of government and regulatory requirements for cable landing points, work in Territorial seas, traverse of EEZ waters, crossing of oil/gas concessions and negotiation of agreements for both survey and cable installation. The work was successfully completed without delay or penalty, considered a first in the history of a West African cable project.
