Pelagian was contracted to provide expert personnel and consultancy services for the installation and remedial works for the Iraq Crude Oil Export Expansion Project (ICOEEP), located off the Shatt-al-Arab in the Persian Gulf.
Project work included provision of offshore client representatives to oversee the works and subsequent analysis of cable burial. As part of the analysis of the cable installation works, Pelagian conducted a detailed cable burial risk assessment.
The risk assessment considered the external threat to the installed cables from external factors such as shipping and fishing and formulated a remedial burial plan for the cables. The project highlighted challenging burial conditions close to existing pipelines and considered the long term operation of the cables in a busy and complex oil & gas shipping zone.
Pelagian provided a detailed GAP Analysis, cable route engineering and cable burial risk assessment consultancy services to the Rampion Offshore Windfarm.
Project work included the design and layout of the export and array cables and geospatial data management and expert recommendations for suitable cable burial equipment and techniques to inform the tendering process prior to cable installation.
The route engineering encountered challenging seabed conditions requiring the careful planning of the wind farm array cables in 20-40m of water around planned jack up locations and avoiding underlying paleochannel areas.
Pelagian provided expert consultancy services and personnel to the Hibernia Express project, the first trans-Atlantic telecom cable to be installed for over 10 years on a unique low latency route laid in very challenging seabed conditions.
Pelagian’s consultancy services included the management of survey and installation programs, permitting research and stakeholder management including the preparation of Notice to Mariners and information for the public.
During the 2 year project, Pelagian provided key personnel for the survey and installation campaigns and contributed to the success of the Hibernia Express project, which was awarded “Project of the Year – Subsea” and “Best Subsea Innovation” at the Global Carrier Awards in 2015.
Pelagian were contracted by a major German offshore wind farm developer to provide expert consultancy services for the tendering phase of the project.
Pelagian provided a detailed review of the technical and commercial tenders for the laying of subsea cables on the project and analysed the capabilities of the cable laying techniques offered.
The client was fully briefed on the suitability of the tenders by utilising a detailed bid scoring system developed for the project.
Pelagian provided consultancy services and key personnel to the Gwynt Y Mor project during the planning and construction phases. Gwynt Y Mor is one of the world’s largest offshore wind farms and was completed in 2014.
Pelagian’s expert consultancy services included detailed route engineering and cable burial assessment for the export and array cables, geospatial data management for survey and construction data and providing expert advice on cable burial equipment and installation methodologies to advise the tendering process.
Pelagian provided numerous offshore based technical personnel for the project, including client representatives and engineers for geophysical surveys, cable lay and foundation installation works during the project.
