OSLO, Oct 29 (Reuters) - Norwegian natural gas exports to Britain fell on

Wednesday morning from the previous day, hit by an unplanned outage at the SEGAL

import terminal, data from gas system operator Gassco showed.

Import capacity at the Shell (LSE: RDSB.L - news) terminal in Scotland was expeced to be

reduced by 10.8 mcm/day on Wednesday because of turbine problems, Gassco said


By around 0945 GMT, flows through the FLAGS pipeline to the terminal were

down by 9 mcm/day from Tuesday.

The following table shows Norwegian pipeline gas flows, measured in mcm per

day, compared with the previous session's average:
