Nam – a joint venture between Shell and ExxonMobil – is to appeal against a Dutch government plan to lower the production cap at the Groningen natural gas field by a further 10%.

In a statement, the company said that the changes to the previously agreed plan created “fundamental ambiguity”.

As a result, the company has asked the state council to review the decision.

Work at the site had been capped due to a small number of earthquakes in the area.
