SAPL Turnkey Network Development Agreement for Ocean Specialists

Ocean Networks and Ocean Specialists have entered into an agreement for the further development and implementation of the South America Pacific Link (SAPL) submarine cable network.

The SAPL Network is being developed in two phases, with Phase-1 connecting Valparaiso (Chile), Manta (Ecuador), Balboa (Panama) and Jacksonville (Florida), and Phase-2 extending the network to Hawaii, where it will interconnect with Asia and Pacific networks, creating a much-needed direct connection between those key traffic points and the west coasts of Central and South America.

OSI will provide full turnkey network development services to Ocean Networks, beginning from the current financing stage and continuing through implementation to network operations.

“Since commencing the SAPL project, Ocean Networks has successfully addressed critical components such as future technology, service capabilities and key supplier relations to bring the best alternatives to our project. OSI, with their history of successfully developing global subsea networks, bring the technical and management capabilities needed for full implementation,” said Scott Schwertfager, CEO of Ocean Networks.

UTC 2017

The subsea industry has, as all other parts of the oil & gas industry, been seriously rattled by the most severe downturn in the hydrocarbon energy era. However, the realization of what hit us and actions to be taken to sustain a healthy and profitable future is still on-going – unfortunately with thousands of colleagues paying the price by losing their job as one of the most severe consequences. At this time, there are signs that we have reached bottom in terms of most industry indicators, but few experts expect a sharp recovery. Many seem to believe that a slow recovery is what the industry needs in order to avoid an unsustainable capacity build-up, as seen in the period after the financial crisis. Considering the uncertainty of what the future will bring, this year’s UTC Program Committee have decided to challenge all of us to present ideas, experiences, technological innovations, business models and execution models for how to shape our subsea future and explain how and why subsea is the future.
UTC welcomes abstracts based on the topics listed below. If selected, please consider writing a paper in addition to the UTC presentation. From 2017, UTC papers will be published in an international database.
