Gassco said the within-day impact of the "problems downstream" at SEGAL would be 12.3 million cu m Thursday, though no day-ahead impact is expected.

The issue began Tuesday, initially forcing a complete curtailment of throughput at the receiving St Fergus Shell sub-terminal.

Gas processing problems also continue at the Kollsnes processing facility on the Norwegian coast with volumes set to be reduced by 13 million cu m/d Thursday. No day-ahead impact is expected.

In addition, a compressor failure at the Kristin gas field is set to see volumes reduced by 3 million cu m on Thursday, and a similar issue at the Sleipner field is set to reduce flows by 10 million cu m.

The compressor failure at Sleipner initially triggered unplanned maintenance on Sunday, and the work was forecast to last six to seven days since then.

Norwegian gas exit flows were running at 312 million cu m to the UK and continental Europe early Thursday.
