Brief description This research hub aims to address the critical engineering challenges associated with Australia’s next generation of offshore oil and gas projects. These projects, in remote deep-water locations, will require innovative floating facilities. Using world-leading expertise in metocean, hydrodynamic, geotechnical and reliability engineering, the hub aims to develop the new technologies and analysis methods that are required to make projects safe, efficient and cost-effective. This research will include wave and current forecasting, vessel motion and offloading analysis, riser and mooring longevity and novel anchoring and subsea foundations. This is expected to lead to safer, more economical projects and should develop Western Australia’s role as an oil and gas centre of excellence.
