The Valhall North Flank topside was lifted on to the jacket Thursday 17 July.
Heerema, under supervision by BP representatives carried out the lift from the heavy lifting vessel Thialf.
The subsequent welding and other work on deck were performed according to schedule.
The entire operation was completed in less than 48 hours and Thialf left the field early Sunday 20 July heading to its next client, this time in the Danish sector.
The platform will remain unmanned until the drilling rig West Epsilon is moved from Valhall Flank South to the North location late July or early August.
First oil is planned during 1 quarter 2004.
