UWA Opens Centre for Long Subsea Tiebacks Lab

Premier Mark McGowan has announced the opening of the Centre for Long Subsea Tiebacks laboratory located at the University of Western Australia (UWA).

The centre will focus on long subsea tieback discoveries that will enhance industry’s understanding of hostile deep-sea conditions.

Subsea tiebacks are a connection between a new oil and gas discovery with an existing production facility.

The development of new long subsea tieback technology helps to unlock the economic viability of WA gas fields that have not yet been commercialized due to their location.

The centre is a key focus area for the LNG Jobs Taskforce and is jointly funded by Chevron and Woodside with approximately AUD 600,000 per annum.

The new centre will provide research and technology in one place.

UWA vice-chancellor professor Dawn Freshwater said the collaborative research centre was a significant project that fulfilled the University’s aim of serving the community and improving people’s lives.

“Not only will it enhance Perth and WA as a centre of offshore engineering excellence, it aligns with UWA’s plans to expand and strengthen global partnerships, as we work to become a pivotal knowledge hub for the Indian Ocean Rim region,” Freshwater said.
