Valhall Flank West Successfully Installed

The Valhall Flank West topsides were installed on the Valhall field on Saturday, 22 June. This is just 14 months after the first steel was cut at Kvaerner’s yard in Verdal. Both the topsides and the jacket were delivered ahead of schedule, under budget and with no serious injuries.

Aker BP is the operator of the Valhall Flank Vest with Pandion as partner. The platform is the first to be delivered under the wellhead platform alliance between Aker BP, Aker Solutions, Kv?rner and ABB. It sailed from Kv?rner in Verdal on Sunday 16 June and arrived at the field with no carry-over-work from the yard. That means a significant reduction in the work scope offshore.

“This is probably the most complete platform ever installed in the North Sea. All planned construction work is complete and just seven per cent of the commissioning phase remains. I am truly impressed by the job the alliance has done here,” says CEO Karl Johnny Hersvik in Aker BP.

“We see a definite effect from the alliance model in the Valhall Flank West project. Compared with similar projects, we have seen substantial reductions in both cost, engineering hours and construction of the topsides and jacket.

Quality has been delivered from day one of the project, and we have not experienced any serious injuries,” says Hersvik.
