Queensland Government Policy

Early in 2013, the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines published the current policy regarding the oil shale industry in Queensland.

The policy stated that that the “Development of a well-managed oil shale industry will help Queensland position itself as a technology leader in the sustainable development of a nationally and globally important new industry.”

Announcement of the policy followed an extensive environmental audit of QER’s facility and a Government review process, commissioned under the previous Labor Government.

For further information on the current policy and changes and a better understanding of the importance placed on oil shale by the Queensland Government, please visit the Queensland Department of Natural Resources and Mines.
