MIT: Gas Storage in Bergermeer Reservoir is Safe
The Dutch Ministry of Economic Affairs has, upon request of the city council of Bergen, appointed the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) to
evaluate an earlier study on the risks of earth tremors compiled by the independent Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research.
The outcome of the MIT research confirmed the following TNO findings as accurate:
- Gas storage lowers the risk of earth tremors
- The maximum magnitude of earth tremors that could occur in the Bergermeer reservoir during the proposed injection and production phase is 3.9 on the Richter scale
- The risk of earth tremors with the maximum magnitude of 3.9 on the Richter scale is less than 1%
