Solid Energy Information Release

Page updated 11 Jun 2013

The Treasury has released material, mainly comprising advice to Ministers, relating to the monitoring of Solid Energy, a State-owned enterprise (SOE). The material released here was prepared by the Crown Company Monitoring Advisory Unit (CCMAU) and the Treasury between the start of the 2006 financial year and May 2013.

CCMAU was a semi-autonomous unit of the Treasury until 2009 when it was fully absorbed into the Treasury and its SOE-monitoring functions were transferred to the Crown Ownership Monitoring Unit (COMU) of the Treasury.

The information provided here fulfils the Official Information Act requests the Treasury has received in relation to Solid Energy.

Some information in the documents has been withheld under sections of the Official Information Act. For more details see the cover sheet of each document and Information Withheld below. Please note a number of documents have been withheld in full because they are commercially sensitive.

For ease of access Treasury has also posted National Resources Company releases by Solid Energy. All enquiries on these documents should be directed to Solid Energy (contact Vicky Blyth, General Manager Communications ph +64 3 345 6078).

There have been four tranches of documents released:
