Oil: black gold from Dutch soil

Schoonebeek - Whether you call it the Texas of the Low Countries or the Dutch Middle East; it's all true. The province of Drenthe is a mini oil state within the Netherlands. In addition to gas, also oil is extracted in the Schoonebeek area near the German border. The viscous gold is found in the ground at a depth of 800 meters. For a long time it was not very profitable to extract oil from this field and drilling was discontinued in 1996. But when oil prices go up again, people will start drilling for oil again.
