Securing a prosperous clean energy future for Australia through innovative, environmentally conscious technological change.

We are the Centre for Long Subsea Tiebacks at the University of Western Australia. Our research aims to realise the goal of providing safe, reliable transport for offshore energy resources through subsea networks. These will help fuel the global transition to a low carbon economy, while securing Australia’s place as a provider of clean, reliable energy to our trading partners.

Our flagship projects aim to revolutionise our predictive capabilities around energy transport, taking advantage of transformational digital technologies. This will enable a new class of management solutions to the challenges of operating subsea, with improved environmental, safety and economic outcomes for such projects.
