NAM director apologizes for controversial statements on reinforcement project

Director of the Dutch gas concern (NAM), Jan Atema, said he regrets the statements he made about the reinforcement operation in the Groningen earthquake area. The operation was set to reinforce homes that were damaged due to fracking in the earthquake zone in Groningen.

NAM will also continue to pay for the reinforcement of homes, although a majority of the costs as covered by the state.

The Dutch gas concern claimed it has scaled down on its production in Groningen compared to previous years. “We only produce a fraction of what we used to. What happens then is that you get less risk, fewer earthquakes and, therefore, less risk of collapse”, the director said.

NAM has disputed the costs of the reinforcement project and repairing damages in the past.
