Short summary
Gas production from the Groningen field in the Netherlands is resulting in increasing amounts of surface subsidence and induced seismicity. Accurate prediction of the future development of both is important but difficult as proven by the historical track record. The paper describes the development of subsidence and seismicity over time and the history of their predictions. A number of important learnings are extracted.
