    Excellent and timely piece on gas production in the Netherlands. One thing though, just yesterday the government announced its intention to cease Groningen production at the end of 2022 instead of 2030. Next year, the annual volume should be reduced to 11,8 bcm, or below the level of 12 bcm at which the risk of tremors is deemed to be at “acceptable” levels. After 2022, gas will only be produced in Groningen in cases of really harsh winters.
