Energy exports from Norway to Britain will not be affected even if Britain leaves the European Union without a deal, Norway's energy ministry said on Friday.

"Energy trade is governed by bilateral commercial agreements. We hence expect that energy exports from Norway to Britain will not be affected, even under a 'no-deal' scenario," a ministry spokesman said in an email.

Gas and oil flows through the offshore pipeline system connecting Norway and Britain are also regulated by bilateral agreements between the two countries, he added.

Norway is Britain's main external natural gas supplier.
