Extracts

The new store at the Barendrecht shopping centre looks much like the neighbouring clothing shops and fast food chains, but it is much more exotic. Almost 2km below the shopping centre lies a nearly spent natural gas reservoir that Shell and the Dutch government were planning to pump full of carbon dioxide from a nearby refinery to test the technology.

Barendrecht residents cite concerns, from the dangers of living and working above tonnes of noxious gas to more banal worries about property prices. They have managed to delay Shell’s plans. They are braced for a tougher fight as the federal government prepares a final ruling on the project before the year-end. read more
