The Netherlands

  • Malcolm W. H. Peebles


The history of the gas industry in Europe is long and distinguished. The story of gas in the United Kingdom has already been described, and while space precludes similar accounts of how the business evolved in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and elsewhere in Europe, one country that cannot be glossed over is the Netherlands. Although the Netherlands is a fairly small country in terms of its geographic size and population, the contribution that Dutch gas has made to the development of the gas industry in north-west Europe over the last 10 to 15 years has been significant enough to merit selection of the Netherlands for individual treatment in this book.
