Four new offshore wind farms, with a combined capacity of 2,300 MW, have been given approval by the Scottish Government

Gas: maintenance at two major Qatari LNG terminals is set to continue until the end of the month, limiting exports to the UK.

Norwegian gas exports are expected to be around 3% higher this winter compared to last winter. The new Valemon field and ramping up of ouput from the Skarv, Gudrun and Oseberg fields as well as the end of maintenance at Troll will all contribute to increased flows out of Norway.
