Norway largest exporter of natural gas to Western Europe

Norway has now surpassed Russia as the largest exporter of natural gas to Western Europe, NRK reports.

 

Norway exported 29.2 billion cubic metres of gas in the first quarter, according to statistics from the Norwegian state gas company Gasco.

Reuters also quotes official figures and writes that this is a sign that EU's effort to become less dependent on energy from Russia is bearing fruit.
