Open Air Terminations - Capacitance Charge

Does anyone have information on how medium voltage shielded cables (new installation) installed outdoors can build capacitance in open air? The cables run underground, one end comes up (parallel feed) steel structure in switch-yard, and the other end to a wooden pole, both are braced to cross-arms -15kv terminations installed and left to be tested and grounded. Please let me know if anyone needs further clarification. 


Thank you,
