Thank you very much, tomw, for the direct link to the list of submissions to the Australian Senate Economics Committee's Inquiry into the proposed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme, and equally importantly, for reproducing the list of submissions in your post.

It was the last submission in your reproduced list that caught my eye.

Submission number 40, by Chevron Australia Pty Ltd, can be downloaded from the page to which tomw has provided a link. The download is a 54 KB PDF file, 13 pages in length. For the benefit of those with a cluttered desktop, or wherever it is on their computer that such downloads go, the file is titled 'sub40.pdf', should there be need to search for it.

From it you can learn:

"Chevron Corporation, through its subsidiaries and affiliates, operates across the entire energy supply spectrum. Chevron’s interests include exploring for, producing and transporting crude oil and natural gas and refining, marketing and distributing petroleum fuel. We also generate electrical power, design and market large-scale energy efficiency solutions and are working toward commercialising the energy resources of the future, including bio-fuels and other renewable energy. Chevron is the WORLD'S LARGEST PRODUCER OF GEOTHERMAL ENERGY ....." (emphasis mine FG)


"In Australia, Chevron is the largest holder of Australia’s natural gas resources ...

Chevron broadly supports the move to a well designed emissions trading scheme as Australia’s principle policy response to regulating greenhouse gas emissions. .... However, Chevron remains concerned with the potential loss of competitiveness faced by Australia’s trade exposed industry and in particular the disincentive the scheme provides for the further development of Australia’s LNG industry.

..... the following Policy objectives expressed in the White Paper appear to have been omitted from the draft Bills:
. How the prohibition on the export of Australian emissions units is proposed to be undertaken. Please note that Chevron does not support the prohibition on the export of emissions units from Australia."

I wonder whether Chevron will get to have the last word as to the precise shape of the CPRS?

Very useful post, tomw.
