Dear All,


Thought I'd give you all an update on where we (FLAG) are with the
cable cuts -


FEA Segment D - The Cable ship CS Certamen is now expected to arrive
at the Alexandria repair ground on Wednesday 6th February. A Permit
for the repair is currently being expedited with the Egyptian


FEA Segment M - The cable ship CS Asean Restorer has been booked for
this repair. It is currently out on an APCN repair and with current
plan will be ready to start any work on our cable on or after 11th
Feb. We have the OTDR traces from Penang and see that the fault is
around 28km out from the station. 


FALCON Segment 7b (Bandra Abbas - Al Seeb) - E-Marine continues to
await the permit to enter the Iranian waters and current forecast for
the ship to start a work is around 19th February.


FALCON Segment 2 - Fault 1st February 41km from repeater, which is
between the first two repeaters out of Dubai toward Muscat (Al Seeb).
The ship has left Abu Dhabi and is on route to the repair ground. The
repair is expected to start in the next 12 hours (weather


FALCON Segment 7a - Fault 1st February between BND (Bandar Abbas,
Iran) and KWI (Kuwait), we are waiting for ship to go out and it
maybe fixed before going out the fault on 7b - to be confirmed. 


I hope this helps,
