How much money is made from the Groningen natural gas field per second?

0 seconds

have passed and approx.


has been made with gas from Groningen.

This equals roughly one million euro per hour.


[Calculation: This counter adds 278 euro to the previous total each second. I've based this amount on an article on the Dutch website, which states the natural gas revenues totalled 12 billion euro last year. Rounded off conservatively, this equals 1 million euro per hour and 278 euro per second. This counter only serves to give you an indication of how big a money making machine the Groningen gas field is.]
