The scope of the project covers a decommissioned oil filled cable in London. We will take samples from the cable and return them to a laboratory in the midlands, for further testing. When a methodology has been identified, we will produce a policy recommendation to ensure this incident does not happen again.

The objectives are:

  • To identify the root cause of the gas
  • To identify an appropriate mitigation method
  • To provide a business implimentation methodology
This project will be successful if we:

  • Identify the root cause of the gas

  • Identify a potential mitigation method

  • Provide a business implementation methodology.
