Norway's Kollsnes Gas Plant Output Drops Due to Supply Problems

Reuters

OSLO, June 29 (Reuters) – Norway's key gas processing plant Kollsnes had to more than halve its output on Sunday due to problems with gas supplies, the plant's operator Gassco told the Nordic power exchange.

The plant's power consumption dropped to 120 megawatts from 270 MW at 1300 GMT due to "lack of upstream gas supply", and the outage was expected to last until 1700 GMT, it added in a market message.

A spokesman at Statoil, operator of the Troll and Kvitebjoern gas fields supplying Kollsnes, said he wasn't aware of any major supply disruptions.
