Meetings and correspondence between DG ENER and Exxon(Mobil)

La solicitud fue exitosa.

Dear DG Energy,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents containing the following information:

- a list of meetings between representatives and/or officials of DG ENER and the company ExxonMobil as well as consultancies acting on their behalf – between September 1st 2015 and August 25th 2016
- Minutes or other forms of reporting of those meetings
- All correspondence, also emails, between representatives and/or officials of DG ENER and the company ExxonMobil as well as consultancies acting on their behalf – between September 1st 2015 and August 25th 2016

Please make sure that all documents are sent as soon as they are found in batches rather than waiting for the entirety of the request to be met.

Do not hesitate to get back to me should you need any further information.

Thank you for your assistance.
Yours sincerely,

Frida Kieninger

Dear Mrs Kieninger,

 

Thank you for your e-mail  dated 25/08/2016.  We hereby acknowledge
receipt of your application for access to documents, which was registered
on 25/08/2016 under reference number GESTDEM  2016/4716

 

In accordance with Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 regarding public access to
European Parliament, Council and Commission documents, your application
will be handled within 15 working days. The time limit will expire on
15/09/2016. In case this time limit needs to be extended, you will be
informed in due course.

 

You have lodged your application via the AsktheEU.org website. Please note
that this is a private website which has no link with any institution of

accountable for any technical issues or problems linked to the use of this
system.

Dear Ms Kieninger,

Subject:             Your application for access to documents – Ref
GestDem No 2016/4716 

We refer to your e-mail dated 25/08/2016 in which you make a request for
access to documents, registered on the same day under the above-mentioned
reference number. In your application you requested access to:

-              a list of meetings between representatives and/or officials
of DG ENER and the company ExxonMobil as well as consultancies acting on
their behalf – between September 1st 2015 and August 25th 2016

-              Minutes or other forms of reporting of those meetings

-              All correspondence, also emails, between representatives
and/or officials of DG ENER and the company ExxonMobil as well as
consultancies acting on their behalf – between September 1st 2015 and
August 25th 2016

 

Your application concerns possibly a very large number of documents, which
need to be assessed individually. Such a detailed analysis cannot be
carried out within the normal time limits set out in Article 7 of
Regulation 1049/2001. Moreover, the handling of your request involves the
assessment of possibly very long and voluminous documents originating from
third parties. The analysis of this/these document(s), together with the
need to consult the third parties concerned in accordance with Article
4(4) and 4(5) of Regulation 1049/2001, cannot be expected to be completed
within the normal time limits set out in Article 7 of Regulation
1049/2001.

However, the Regulation also provides for a possibility to confer with
applicants in order to find a fair solution when an application relates to
a very long document or concerns a very large number of documents. Article
6(3) provides that in the event of an application relating to a very long
document or to very large number of documents, the institution concerned
may confer with the applicant informally, with a view to finding a fair
solution.

 

In accordance with the case law of the EU Courts, such a solution can only
concern the content or the number of documents applied for, not the
deadline for replying. This means that the scope of the request must be
reduced in a way that would enable its treatment within the extended
deadline of 15 + 15 working days.

 

Based on the above-mentioned provision, we would kindly ask you to specify
the objective of your request and your specific interest in the documents
requested (i.e. the subject matter of meetings/correspondence you refer
to).

 

In order to enable us to respect the time-limits of Regulation 1049/2001,
we would ask you for a swift reply to our invitation to propose a fair
solution, within five working days at the latest:

·         by email to: [1][email address]

If you have any questions concerning the invitation, you can contact us:

·         by email at: [2][email address]

·         by telephone at: (+32) (0) 22 98 17 47

 

Thank you in advance for your understanding.

Yours sincerely,
