Research

The mission of the Energy Pipelines CRC was to provide the Australian energy pipeline industry with the technology necessary to extend the life of the existing natural gas transmission network and to build better and cheaper networks necessary to support increased demand for energy.

Erwin and OliverThe Energy Pipelines CRC supported an extensive research program linked directly to industrial applications. Technological innovations facilitated the construction of new pipeline networks, both for the for natural gas other emerging energy cycle fluids.

The industry relevance was ensured by close collaboration with the members of the Australian Pipelines and Gas Association’s Research and Standards Committee (APGA-RSC). These companies provided cash funds to the Energy Pipelines CRC and were the primary end users of the research. The APGA RSC members identified research needs, participated in project steering committees and implemented research outcomes through their companies as well as via membership of Standards Australia committees.

A full list of projects is available here.

Research was broadly divided into four Research Programs (RPs):

RP1 – More Efficient Use of Materials for Energy Pipelines;
RP2 – Extension of Safe Operating Life of New and Existing Energy Pipelines;
RP3 – Advanced Design and Construction of Energy Pipelines; and
RP4 – Public Safety and Security of Supply of Energy Pipelines.

Included in the Energy Pipelines CRC was an education program, aimed at educating and fostering the next generation of pipeline engineers.

Four research programs took place for various universities across Australia including the University of Wollongong, University of Adelaide, Deakin University and RMIT University as well Monash University and the Australian National University.
