Ormen Lange ramp up delayed; back to normal by Thursday evening

OSLO, Oct 10 (Reuters) - A power consumption ramp up at Royal Dutch Shell's giant Ormen Lange gas field in Norway has been delayed for a day, the Nordic power bourse said in a market message on Wednesday.

Consumption at Ormen Lange, which gets all of its power from the national grid, was down to 20 megawatts (MW) from the installed effect of 200 MW, the bourse said.

It added it expected demand to be back to normal Thursday evening.
