* 7 million cu m within day, day-ahead impact

* Unnamed field outage said to end June 25

* Impact from planned outage on another unnamed field revised upwards


There was within-day reduced availability for Friday of 7 million cu m/d.

The unplanned outage, whose cause remained unknown, started on Wednesdayafternoon and was initially expected to last 24 hours. Gassco said Thursdaysaid the duration was uncertain.

Nyhamna processes gas from the major Ormen Lange gas field.

At the same time as the Nyhamna outage, an unnamed field was also hit byan outage, which was reducing availability by 7 million cu m/d.

Given the outages occurred at the same time and the volume reduction wasthe same, the field may be Ormen Lange which, in turn, caused the volumereduction at Nyhamna.

Gassco said Thursday the "Nyhamna restriction [has been] moved fromunplanned event to planned event due to the expected length of the outage."

The outage at the unnamed field was said to finish on the morning of June25, suggesting the impact on the Nyhamna processing plant could also lastuntil then.

The impact from planned maintenance at another unnamed gas field wasrevised upwards Friday afternoon from reduced availability of 11 million cum/d on June 19 and 20 to reduced availability of 17 million cu m/d on the samedates.

The outage is said to last only two days, on June 19 and June 20, and isdue to "maintenance on the power grid."
