    The Nederlandse Aardolie Maatschappij BV, or NAM, the Dutch gas-production venture of Shell and Exxon that operates the Slochteren field, said today in a statement that it will compensate all damage resulting from the quakes. The company has set aside 100 million euros ($134 million) for claims.

    “NAM has taken immediate action and is in contact with the relevant governments and services,” according to the statement on the company’s website. “Earthquakes have taken place in the northern Netherlands since 1986 and have been linked by experts to gas production.”
