I've added empty placeholders for two new sections, started a new sect (Structure) and demoted the history sections by 1 level and grouped under a single histroy header. Rewrote the intro, added a handful of citations. The whole article needs a bit of a refresh esp. statistical updates etc. I'll return in the next day or two and complete the performance section (prob by bringing paragrpah 2 into it and updating the numbers. Just noticed it uses a citation template which I didn't follow so will fix that soon.GlenDillon 15:12, 11 September 2008 (UTC)
Moondyne - noticed you'd added the chart. You kind of beat me to it! Was about to do the same yesterday but instead worked on another one - for this article and may even be a useful addition to the Economy section of the Western Australia article - which is similar but also includes the value of WA's agricultural products, and without the detailed focus on individual petroleum products. So I might replace the one you just added, but only because it's more inclusive of the full range of WA's output and less 'petroleum-centric'.GlenDillon 06:25, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
No problemo. Moondyne 06:51, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
Having just completed a revision to the Economy section of Western Australia, I've transferred most of the contents there across to this article, as a "quick fix" for "Economy of Western Australia". I know this means duplication for the time being, but the intention is that this article be now polished up, expanded and blank sections completed, then summaries of any additional pertinent content might go back into the Western Australia article.
