Dutch court to rule on Eemskanaal gas production on May 29

AMSTERDAM, May 28 (Reuters) - A Dutch court hearing objections to gas production at Eemskanaal, part of the large Groningen gas field, will issue a preliminary ruling on May 29, the court said on Thursday.

The court, the Council of State, is due to decide whether to issue a preliminary ban on production at Eemskanaal, which represents around 5 percent of the Groningen field.

Residents have challenged government production quotas at Eemskanaal, saying earthquakes linked to exploitation are a safety threat to local dikes. (Reporting By Toby Sterling; Editing by Pravin Char)
