As Russia tightens gas supplies to western Europe, the Groningen gas field in northeastern Netherlands – the biggest of its kind in Europe – has taken on new importance. It holds enough gas to replace three years of Russian gas supplies to the EU. But, the Dutch government plans to close the field next year because of the risk of earthquakes caused by gas extraction. Now calls are growing for a rethink. There’s little appetite in the region, however, for prolonging gas production.

The gas supply to Europe is about 30% from Russia. Now it's been shut down. seems all of the other sellers are invalible to catch the share, but the USA
The dutch government is selling the gas to other countries for prices from the 1970s.
And buying gas back for current market prices
They are to slow to compensate the damages.
The foreign press should concentrate on what the government is doing and not focus on the gas that is still in the ground.
The dutch government doesn't even want to use the dutch gas to heat the dutch houses.
Bitcoin is a trillion-dollar asset.

East block is not europe? Nobody in oil bus would agree the gas field is big, let alone competitive. Why is Biggest put prominently in the title anyway?
Just imagine retiring as a registered nurse, using all your income/salary to pay rent and tax without any good investment or means of extra cash, tending to leave your profession/job that has been part of you for many years with no good funds. How will you cope?
We have more gas reserves than any other Eu country right now. We should empty the fields in Groningen and compensate the people there to move elsewhere
Whats the magnitude again? 3-4? Came on. The only thing that is going down with that are stuff that was probably unsafe to be around.
S Korea should help Netherland with LNG tankers for not to sell ASML equipment to Taiwan. Selling ASML equipment is threat when China invade Taiwan.
I had no idea earthquakes could cause this level of serious damage in a country similar to mine (I'm from the UK).
I'm missing one point in this reporting from our Eastern neighbors. The fact that the Groningen gas fields will have to be reopened because the Germans will force us to. Demanding that their contingency contacts will be honoured.
Having said that it's sad to see that the rest of this piece was a lot more honest then anything our own government has dared to say about it so far.
As they're still riding the lie that "it's very, very unlikely that these fields will (need to) be restarted in a few months"..
It’s not quite Japan! The Dutch can manage! Free EU from its addiction to Russian fossil fuels!
i guess lng imports is the only viable options, in that case mozambique to the rescue🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣
Why should the Dutch deliver gas to Germany while the German government refuses to hold on to its nucleair plants for electric power.
This Green is driving a Gas ⛽️ Car what an irony
Build better houses
Get the residents back in line ? Cut their gas . They will be ok with earthquakes
I would not expect the gas field to be opened this year unless the winter was particularly severe and long.
The Netherlands and Germany have had plenty time to prepare the gas storages and the Netherland have augmented their LNG import capacity starting next month.
It is more likely that some companies in Germany have to lower gas usage than to reopen the Groningen gasveld and risk more damage to houses.
The gas field needs to settle now.
Actually, these aren't real earthquakes. Only places where the gas gets taken out of the ground they collapse and that can cause some damage to the ground and nearby houses/infrastructure but nothing compared to a real earthquake where tectonic plates plow against eachother
Who care about human life or human rights, good in talk about it and never follow through 😀
