    Midnight Wrangler completes major project for Mariner Energy

    News // September 1, 2003
    Torch Offshore has announced that its vessel Midnight Wrangler has completed its first project for Mariner Energy. The vessel successfully installed a subsea tree onto an existing wellhead in Mississippi Canyon Block 66 Area. The water depth for the project was 1,200ft.

    The company has signed a Letter of Intent for the vessel to work on a project for Entré Holdings Company in the Gulf of Mexico Eugene Island Block 294 Area. The Midnight Wrangler will install one 4.5in and two 3.5in coiled tubing flowlines in 200ft waterdepth. Each flowline is 8,000ft in length.

    The three flowlines will originate from a newly installed Entré Holdings Company platform and tie-in to an existing platform. The work was due to commence in late August, 2003.

    Torch Offshore took delivery of the Midnight Wrangler, a DP2, 341ft deepwater construction/pipelay vessel in March 2003. The company equipped the vessel with a 125 ton crane and a 60 ton crane. When in pipelay mode, the vessel can accommodate up to four9.2m reels as part of its modular lay system.

    In addition, Torch Offshore and Sonsub signed an alliance partnership for subsea remote intervention support on the vessel with the 200 hp INNOVATOR 12 ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) on board.
