StatoilHydro makes gas discovery in Norwegian Sea
Norwegian oil and gas group StatoilHydro has made a gas discovery at the Galtvort prospect in the Norwegian Sea, Norwegian energy officials said on Monday.

Other partners in the license are Gaz de France Norway with 20%, Norwegian energy company Noreco with 17.5%, E.ON Ruhrgas Norge with 17.5%, state-owned Petoro with 7.5%, Concedo with 5% and Endavour Energy Norge which holds a 2.5% stake. (Reuters)
