In recent years public concern about earthquakes induced by gas production has increased in the Netherlands. This has mainly been caused by numerous seismic events related to gas depletion in the Groningen gas field, the largest gas field in Western Europe. Induced seismicity has also been observed in 31 smaller gas fields located on land ...

In the Netherlands, over 190 gas fields of varying size have been exploited, and 15% of these have shown seismicity. The prime cause for seismicity due to gas depletion is stress changes caused by pressure depletion and by differential compaction. The observed onset of induced seismicity due to gas depletion in the Netherlands occurs after a...

Depletion of the Groningen gas field has induced earthquakes, although the north of the Netherlands is a tectonically inactive region. Increased seismic activity raised public concern which led the government to initiate a number of studies with the aim of understanding the cause(s) of the earthquakes. If the relationship between production and...

The Groningen gas field has shown considerable compaction and subsidence since starting production in the early 1960s. The behaviour is understood from the geomechanical response of the reservoir pressure depletion. By integrating surface movement measurements and modelling, the model parameters can be constrained and understanding of the...

Finite element analyses were performed to estimate axial deformation of cavern wells due to gas storage operations in solution-mined salt caverns. Caverns shrink over time due to salt creep and the cavern roof subsides potentially threatening well integrity. Cavern deformation, deformation of salt surrounding the cavern and impacts on well...

Depletion of gas fields, even in a tectonically inactive area can induce earthquakes.

Hydrocarbon extraction leads to compaction of the gas reservoir, which is visible on the surface as subsidence. Subsidence measurements therefore give information on the hydrocarbon extraction and can thus be used to better estimate uncertain reservoir parameters. Normally, optical height difference measurements are taken between benchmarks,...

In recent studies on the surface subsidence caused by hydrocarbon recovery of the Groningen gas field, the predicted subsidence is overestimated if results of compaction experiments are not corrected by an empirical `upscaling factor'. In order to find an explanation for this `upscaling factor', an analysis is presented of different laboratory...

In de Mijnbouwwet (2003) wordt voor de winning van aardgas gevraagd om een winningsplan. Het winningsplan beschrijft de wijze waarop de gaswinning plaatsvindt. Daarnaast moeten de gevolgen van de gaswinning in kaart worden gebracht op twee vlakken: het veiligheidsrisico en de schade die kan optreden. De voorgenomen herziening van de Mijnbouwwet...

Ze vindt het geweldig om als onderzoeker te werken aan onderwerpen die in onze samenleving heel actueel zijn. Denk hierbij bijvoorbeeld aan allerlei aspecten rond de gas- en zoutwinning in ons land. Dr. Karin van Thienen-Visser is medeverantwoordelijk voor de technisch-geomechanische adviezen hierover aan de overheid

The Wadden Sea is a shallow tidal sea in the north of the Netherlands where gas production is ongoing since 1986. Due to the sensitive nature of this area, gas extraction induced subsidence must remain within the "effective subsidence capacity" for the two tidal basins (Pinkegat and Zoutkamperlaag) affected. We present a probabilistic method to...

Surface movement data can be used in data assimilation or inversion exercises to improve the level of knowledge of a compacting reservoir. We have designed, implemented and tested a new algorithm that uses measured optical height differences directly, without having to translate them to heights with regard to a geodetic reference level. This way...

In this paper we present a review ofcontrolling geological, tectonic and engineering factors lor induced seismic¡ty associated to gas depletion in the Netherlands and we place experiences from extensive Dutch geomechanical studies in the past decade in the contex[ ofgeneric models for induced seismicity. Netherlands is in a mature gas production...
