Dutch Council of State to rule on Groningen gas production Nov. 15

AMSTERDAM, Nov 6 (Reuters) - A Dutch high court on Monday said it will rule on Nov. 15 on whether to uphold the government’s current plan for gas production at the Groningen gas field.

The plan to lower production to 21.6 billion cubic meters per year beginning in October has been challenged by both environmental groups, who want the figure lowered, and the field’s operator, a joint venture between Royal Dutch Shell and Exxon Mobil.
