Union watchdog to probe tasmanian officials over gas deal and gas contracts
The Government’s environmental watchdog has found that a Tasmanian energy company gave preference to an Indonesian gas company over an Australian company in a bid to obtain a contract worth more than $120 million.
At least $60 million in foreign money — mostly through overseas accounts — is believed to have been invested in a gas export venture in the Indian province of West Papua.
Key points: Tasmanian auditor says gas contract was negotiated for with a firm with a deep history of corruption
It’s understood the contract was awarded via an under-the-table deal
Environmentalists demand action against government
The Tasmanian Auditor-General is investigating whether there was a “widespread or widespread acceptance” of under-the-table deals at several state-owned companies, including the Gorgon Group of Companies.
It is understood the Tasmanian Government will also ask the independent Auditor-General of Australia to probe the deals.
The audit is now being undertaken by the Tasmanian Government’s Auditor-General, who is also tasked with investigating corruption allegations concerning former state 카지노 사이트and territory ministers, particularly when it comes to the West Papua gas deal.
The Government says an independent auditor is also required to look into the contract awarded to a South Indonesian company, the Gorgon Group of Companies, for a gas export venture that was to have been done in the Indian province of West Papua.
The Queensland auditor-general has also begun an investigation into the sa바카라me deal.
Mr O’Dwyer says the audit is now under way.
“When we’re looking in-depth at the contracts that are in place and considering what we think are the appropriate actions that we need to take against those companies for the things that they’ve done to tarnish the state,” he said.
The auditor-general’s office confirmed it was undertaking an independent review into how it received the contracts from an Indonesian gas company.
The Gorgon Group, a privately owned company which owns the gas project, is the largest single shareholder in the project and according to government records, had the right to bid for the gas, which would be produced in Indonesia.
It had secured contracts from several governments, including the former state of Vict카지노 사이트oria, West Papua, Tasmania and Queensland.
But the Tasmanian Government says an independent auditor was given access by the South Indonesian government to review the contract awarded to the Gorgon Group before it was signed.
