The Project Group Consulting provided Project Engineering support services to BP on their Fiber Optic Project. This project was a first-of-its-kind project for the Gulf of Mexico. It brought high band-width, low latency communications to Oil & Gas platforms in the deepwater areas of the Gulf of Mexico. The cable runs from Pascagoula MS to Freeport TX and extends into the deepwater blocks (up 5000-6000 ft water depths) in the GoM. The project required working with a telecommunications cable company for laying the subsea fiber optic cable and components. It also required working with the Production Platforms to install and integrate the equipment on the platforms.
