Report summary

The collapse in oil price has raised concerns over the development of marginal fields and the under-utilisation of infrastructure in mature oil and gas regions. We assess the impact of the Dutch Marginal Fields Tax incentive implemented in 2010. The incentive covers 16 fields that add 17 bcm of gas, over €700 million in value to companies, and €825 million in direct government take.
