Gas exploration and production company NAM is expected to make a claims settlement offer to residents of the Drenthe town of Langelo. NAM has a large gas reservoir in the Drenthe area and according to Dagblad van het Noorden, 3,600 damage claims have been filed due to tremors in recent years.
NAM will be addressing damage claims filed prior to 31 March 2017. The claims settlement discussions come after meetings between the municipality of Noordenveld, the ministry of economic affairs and the Steenbergen working group.
Roughly 100 people have filed damage claims in Drenthe. The damage claims will be handled along with open claims from the province of Groningen. The NAM has stated that they intend to settle the Noordenveld claims by July of 2018.
