This page gives information on the main issues of mineral resources and geothermal energy in the Netherlands. As well as oil and gas production, ‘mining’ also covers other uses of the deep subsurface, such as geothermal energy, carbon-dioxide storage, subsurface storage of other substances and salt mining.

You can find general information and location-specific data on individual resources, if available. The oil and gas fields tab also provides information on stranded (undeveloped) fields and infrastructure. The geothermal energy tab also provides information on legislation, regulations and reports. 

The Natural Resources and Geothermal Energy Annual Review provides extensive coverage of all the current uses of the subsurface in the Netherlands. TNO publishes this annual review on behalf of the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs.
