Gassco website revamp makes Norway gas flows harder to gauge, say analysts

* Live physical flow data is missing from new website

OSLO, Dec 1 (Reuters) – Norwegian gas pipeline operator Gassco launched a revamped data website on Tuesday which switches away from live physical flows, drawing criticism from analysts who say it has reduced transparency in a key energy market.

That is problematic, analysts say.
