INTERNATIONAL ENERGY TECHNOLOGY COLLABORATION AND LESSONS LEARNT

S. Isbarn, R. Amin

Curtin University of Technology (AUSTRALIA)
Technology development is crucial for universities but the context for its transfer and proper implementation is even more important. This paper presents a successful example of technology transfer between university, government, local industry, and international operator like Shell and Woodside.
The focus of this paper is on the management and implementation of the field trial of a novel CO2 separation and water removal technology by Woodside Research Facility and Curtin University. This technology was initially incubated by the Australian Government and later sponsored by both Shell and Woodside. Both Shell and Woodside are a large scale offshore operator with significant gas interests. To carry out technology trial offshore would be slow and expensive for such large international companies. It was decided therefore to form a spin of company to manage the technology and work with an upstream local operator, ARC Energy, at their onshore Xyris gas production and processing field located onshore in Western Australia (Perth Basin).
This arrangement proved to be beneficiary to all the parties involved and delivered successful outcomes. The lessons learnt during the trial may assist other universities, operators or technology providers in world to mature their technologies for large scale, remote gas applications
