Decision No. 35-W-2013

January 31, 2013

APPLICATION by Subsea 7 Canada Inc., pursuant to the Coasting Trade Act, S.C., 1992, c. 31, for a licence.

File No.: 


Subsea 7 Canada Inc. applied, through its representative, for a licence to use the “SEVEN EAGLE”, a Liberian offshore subsea construction ship, to perform saturation diving and remote operated vehicle (ROV) activities on subsea production equipment, offshore the east coast of Newfoundland and Labrador, commencing February 1 and ending April 30, 2013.


Is there a suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity?


Canadian Transportation Agency (Agency) staff gave notice of the application to the Canadian marine industry and no Canadian ships were offered. Therefore, the Agency determines that there is no suitable Canadian ship available to perform the activity.

The Agency is providing this determination to the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness to consider whether to issue the licence. This Decision is not an authority to operate.
