The OFFshore ITRH tackled the critical engineering challenges facing offshore oil and gas projects, spanning both design and operations
The OFFshore ITRH was structured as five interlinked multi-disciplinary projects covering a range of problems from the seabed to the ocean surface.
The OFFshore ITRH united a world-class team of researchers across the full spectrum of offshore engineering spanning metocean, hydrodynamics and geotechnics, brought together by statistics, reliability and asset management.
The OFFshore ITRH was jointly funded by the Australian Research Council, Shell Australia, Woodside Energy, Bureau Veritas and Lloyds Register.
The OFFshore ITRH utilised and expanded the world-leading experimental facilities at UWA and developed new techniques to gather field data from the open ocean and from operating floating facilities to meet the demands of the research program.
