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.

Great talk by new PhD student David Zhu, discussing a new database tool to estimate uncertainty in phase boundary predictions for #SubseaTiebacks. Well done!

Primary Objective
The Centre for Long Subsea Tiebacks aims to facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy while reducing the local environmental impact of energy production, and realising improvements in safety, reliability and economic feasibility for offshore assets.
Research Objective
To enable energy production from stranded deep-water assets through a range of research initiatives aimed at improving development economics, safety, reliability and reducing environmental impacts.
