Oil and gas projects
Oil and gas activities are very visible in the small country side of the Netherlands, even if these are off-shore. Gas extraction causes earth quakes in the northern parts of the country, raising serious questions about the future of extraction on land. Injecting CO2 in the empty underground gas caves as part of national climate change strategy (carbon storage) is not accepted, despite positive government reports. This calls for professional strategic stakeholder engagement. WesselinkVanZijst has assisted several companies in this sector in building a coalition for their project.
