How will the subsidence be investigated?

The probability and extent of the subsidence are described in the soil subsidence report, which is drawn up by an independent research firm. The effects of subsidence on nature and the environment are discussed in the EIA. The soil subsidence report and the seismic risk analysis form part of the extraction plan, for which the Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs and Climate Policy must give its approval. The extraction plan and the consent shall be made available for inspection.
