24% (209 votes)
Yes, because the Netherlands will be needing gas for a long period and having our own gas production will decrease our dependence on other countries.
25.7% (224 votes)
Yes, because the Netherlands has the knowledge that is needed to extract shale gas in a responsible manner and it would strengthen our position on the gas market.
