Business as usual for the Mineral Resources and Energy Resources Divisions

On Monday 6 February 2017 it was announced that the Resources and Energy Group of the Department of State Development will transition to the Department of Premier and Cabinet. Dr Paul Heithersay and the resources that encompass the Mineral Resources Division, Energy Resources Division, Energy Markets and Programs Division, and the Resources and Infrastructure Investment Taskforce will also transfer to the Department of Premier and Cabinet.

The Hon Tom Koutsantonis will continue to be the Minister for Mineral Resources and Energy. 

For the immediate term within the Mineral Resources and Energy Resources Divisions all business systems and processes will remain as normal - in a practical sense it is 'business as usual'.
