1st April 2019 RE: Access to Documents related to gas/RED/2030 targets

Dear sirs,

Referring to Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 on public access to EU documents and to the 'Aarhus Regulation' (see note), I would herewith like to ask for access to the following:

1- all correspondence (including email) between 1st April 2017 and 31st March 2019 between the Commission President Juncker and/or his cabinet on one hand and representatives from ExxonMobil and/or the International Association of Oil & Gas Producers (IOGP) on the other, in which one or more of the following issues were addressed:
- the Gas winter package;
- the gas market design;
- the last review of the Renewable Energy Directive
- and the review of the 2030 climate and energy targets.

I would like to make clear I prefer you produce the documents on a rolling basis.
At no point should the Commission’s search for—or deliberations concerning—certain documents delay the production of others that the Commission has already retrieved and elected to produce.

To the extent possible, we prefer the documents in electronic format. Documents that cannot be sent in electronic format should be sent to Corporate Europe Observatory, Rue d’Edimbourg 26, 1050 Brussels.

Should my request be denied wholly or partially, please explain the denial or all deletions referring to specific exemptions in the regulation. Also I expect the partial release of documents, in case of partial exemption according to article 4.6.
I reserve the right to appeal.

Please confirm having received this application. I look forward to your reply within 15 business days, according to the regulation.

Thank you for your assistance.

Belen Balanya
Corporate Europe Observatory
