In the country's largest electricity deal ever, Oslo City Council and Finnish company Fortrum have divvied up Norway's largest energy company between them.

Norwegian energy company Hafslund will be delisted from the Norwegian stock exchange, according to a stock exchange announcement from the company's two majority shareholders – Oslo City Council and Finnish company Fortum, which own 53.7 percent and 34.3 percent respectively.
