    Vessel & ROV News // September 27, 2002
    Torch Offshore says the initial contract for the utilization of the Midnight Hunter has been finalized with Sonsub for work on the Canyon Express project in the Gulf of Mexico. The Midnight Hunter will install flowline jumpers in water depths of up to 7,200ft over a period of approximately four weeks. The work will commence as early as next week after final modifications are made to the vessel to prepare it for such work.

    The Midnight Hunter, a 340ft deepwater pipelay vessel on a three-year time charter, became available to Torch on August 18th when it arrived in New Orleans, Louisiana. In order to prepare the vessel for this subsea construction work, Torch is currently equipping the vessel with a 60-ton crane as well as project specific equipment.
