Oil and gas companies

We're waiting for Jenna Corderoy to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear University of St Andrews,

This is a request under the Environmental Information Regulations 2004. I would like to request the following information:

For the calendar years 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021 and 2022, I would like to be provided with details on accepted donations, gifts, grants, sponsorships, scholarships and funding (including research funding and teaching funding, as well as funding for university staff and professorships) that have come from oil and gas companies. For each, I would like the following information:

- The name of the oil/gas company that gave the donation, gift, grant, sponsorship, scholarship or funding
- The start and end date of the donation, gift, grant, sponsorship, scholarship or funding if available
- The sum and description of the accepted donation, gift, grant, sponsorship, scholarship and funding
- A description of what the donation, gift, grant, sponsorship, scholarship and funding was used for

If your records are held in such a way where it is difficult to search by sector (e.g. oil and gas), then I am happy to narrow the request to the following companies:

- BP
- Shell
- Saudi Aramco
- Gazprom
- Total
- Chevron
- Equinor / Statoil
- China Petroleum and Chemical Corporation (SINOPEC)
- Eni
- Exxon
- ConocoPhillips
- PetroChina
- Rosneft
- Lukoil
- China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC)

I would like to receive this information in an Excel format. If you feel that a substantive response to this request is not possible within a reasonable time frame, I would be grateful if you could contact me and provide assistance as to how I can refine the request. If you need any clarification, please contact me. I look forward to receiving a response in 20 working days. Many thanks.

Yours faithfully,

Jenna Corderoy

Dear Jenna,

Thank you for your information request dated 19 July 2022 in relation to funding received from specific oil and gas companies as listed in your enquiry. As part of our duty to advise and assist, given the information you seek is of a financial nature, the recorded information (if any) that we hold will be based on our financial year which runs from 1 August to 31 July. Before I proceed to instruct a search of our records can you confirm that a response based on financial years rather than calendar years would be acceptable i.e. providing a response in relation to financial years 2017/18, 2018/19, 2019/20, 2020/21 and 2021/22 (to date)?

This request for additional information is made under section 1(3) of the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002. Please note that on receiving the requested clarification, you will receive the University's response within 20 working days from that date.

Your request will be held pending until I hear from you further.

Yours sincerely,

June

Dear Jenna,

Apologies, I have made reference to the Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 rather than the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004 (EIRs). My second paragraph should have read:

"This request for additional information is made under section 9(2) and 9(4) of the EIRs. Please note that on receiving the requested clarification, you will receive the University's response within 20 working days from that date.

Yours sincerely,

June

Dear Jenna,

A response is currently awaited to the emails sent to you on 21 July 2022 which explained the way in which our financial records are organised and your request is on hold pending confirmation from yourself (or otherwise) that the provision of information based on financial year rather than calendar would be acceptable.

I would be grateful to hear back from you in this regard which will then enable me to instruct a search of the records that we hold.

Yours sincerely,

June
