NORWAY GAS-Higher flows to Germany offset drop to UK

* Norway gas exports total 313.4 mcm/d

* Supplies to France, Belgium steady

OSLO, Feb 14 (Reuters) - Norwegian pipeline gas exports rose

on Thursday morning as an increase in flows to the Netherlands

and Germany more than offset a drop to Britain, data from gas

system operator Gassco showed.

Total (NYSE: TOT - news) supplies to Europe, including Britain, were at 313.4

million cubic metres (mcm) per day as of 0730 GMT compared with

a daily average of 307.8 mcm the previous day.

Flows to Britain, Europe's most traded gas market fell by

11.2 mcm to 98.1 mcm, while combined supplies to the Netherlands

and Germany rose by 14.2 mcm to 120.8 mcm.

The drop to UK came due to lower deliveries through the

Vesterled pipeline.

Supplies to France and Belgium were broadly stable at 54.1

mcm and 40.4 mcm respectively.

The export figures are based on gas fed into the system at a

certain point in time and calculated to a daily average. Volumes

can change throughout the day as producers adjust the amount of

gas they pump into the system.
