Made a lot of splices over the years and some underground. I'd make the splice connection with split bolts sized for the wire unless you have access to lugs and a crimper. Keep it clean. After each split bolt connection is made use Scotch Varnished Cambric Tape and cover all the exposed area and up the insulation about 2 inches and at least 3 wraps. Keep it clean. Then use Scotch Linerless Rubber Splicing Tape. This tape is made to stretch as it's being applied. Cut each piece about 5 inches long and stretch as applied to cover all the area with at least 2 complete wraps and extend up the insulation past the Cambric about 1 inch. Keep it clean. Then apply Scotch Super 33+ Vinyl Electrical Tape. Tape over the linerless with 3 full wraps and up the insulation another inch past the linerless.
Don't settle for other brands of tape. This is the best I know of and have used it for over 25 years. The linerless will become a ball of rubber and seals really good if applied proper. The Cambric is used basically so you can get all that tape off the connection if need be later. If you don't use the Cambric and have to get back in that connection later you'll wish you had used it. The linerless is really hard to cut once it's applied. It has to be cut to be removed. If you have to cut some you can most of the time feel when the blade goes through the Cambric. Then you can use channel lock pliers and roll the tape wad off.
