UK GAS-Prices down on increased Norwegian flows

June 30 (Reuters) - British wholesale gas prices fell on Friday due to increased Norwegian flows that caused the system to be oversupplied.

* Gas for weekend delivery was 1.15 pence lower at 35.15 p/therm.

* Friday's gas imports to Britain from Norway jumped to 66 million cubic metres (mcm) from 48 mcm on Thursday, an increase led by doubled flows from the Langeled pipeline at 38 mcm.

* Norwegian flows to Britain via the Entry SEGAL pipeline system remained low at 12 mcm from 14 mcm the previous day, as an ongoing outage at Norway's Gjoea field has reduced flows.
