The following documents have been released by the Government of South Australia following Freedom of Information requests lodged by me personally during the years 2015-2017. The requests were fulfilled with no fees payable, thanks to Premier Jay Weatherill’s pro-active disclosure policy, introduced in 2013.

This is the first of a planned series of bulk document releases spanning a range of topics. They were obtained lawfully, following an extensive series of requests made under South Australia’s Freedom of Information Act 1991. All documents are fully searchable, less than 2MB in size and are free to download and share.

I am providing them here for the benefit of anyone interested in studying the history of the oil and gas industry and relevant policy and legislation in South Australia.
