Petrocelticgas boost

DUBLIN-BASED Petroceltic has discovered more gas than expected at a well in Algeria.

The exploration group saw shares soar by as much as 4.3pc.

The gains helped erase recent losses which have seen Petroceltic's share price more than halve in the past six months.

The company yesterday reported a positive outlook for the Ain Tsila field.
