The second-largest producer of natural gas in the EU, the Netherlands has 1.45 trillion m3 of proved reserves of this energy commodity, which plays a significant role in the Dutch country's energy sector. The Netherlands is bordered by the North Sea to the north, where much of the country's offshore energy sector is concentrated. Located in the northern Netherlands and estimated to produce for another 50 years, Groningen -- Europe's largest natural gas field -- has already exceeded 100 Tcf and was discovered in May 1959 by a 50-50 joint venture between Shell and ExxonMobil.
CAD/ CAM is a computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing system used to create, modify, analyze, and manufacture products. CAD is used in many fields to assist with engineering, finite element analysis, and creating 2D and 3D models that lower product development costs and shorten the design cycle. CAM software is actually able to control machinery used to manufacture products, or in some cases, may control all operations in a manufacturing plant.
