The Australian Research Council recently awarded the University of Western Australia $4.6 million to establish and support the ARC Training Centre for Liquefied Natural Gas Futures. The training centre will be directed by Professor Eric May. VMG is proud to announce its support as a partner organization for the new training centre by providing the software needed for LNG plant modeling.
"This training centre aims to deliver projects and training to enable future Australian Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production from reserves in deep water, at small or remote on-shore locations, with greater efficiency, less environmental impact, and at lower cost than currently possible. This should be accomplished via research projects undertaken by the PhD students and research fellows with guidance from the centre’s industrial partners. The centre’s expected legacy is a unique research and training facility, designed for future integration into a microscale LNG plant. The anticipated research and training outcomes will help to ensure Australia plays a leading role in future global LNG developments."
