Transformational benefits to Australia through collaboration, technological innovation and investment in education with industry partnership.

We are an Australian Research Council (ARC) Industrial Transformation Training Centre. Our research is in Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) striving for cost effective LNG at all scales and in deep water and remote locations.  The LNG research has a strong industry focus and aims to increase growth, productivity and capabilities in this key Australian industry.

The flagship project for the Training Centre is to establish a micro-scale LNG plant and associated research facility. The world first facility will have training, research and demonstration capabilities.  This will help accelerate the deployment of new technology by demonstrating new processes in a live plant environment.
