The task will look to deliver a set-up of latent and dynamic geophysical information securing and examination

Innovation in fiber optic detection for Australian assets

The Curtin University research group plans to use acoustic detecting to improve the efficiency of Australian oil and gas, mining and natural gas operations, offering more savvy and more secure asset extraction methods.

This task will aim to discover methods of latent and dynamic geophysical information security and examination thanks to broadband fiber-optic detection that will substantially reduce the cost of geophysical characterisation of the subsurface and encourage a more secure asset extraction process.

Professor Roman Pevzner of Curtin’s WA School of Mines: Minerals, Energy and Chemical Engineering leads the group. The team will be part of the Federal Government’s Global Innovation Linkages Program and incorporate global teammates to test the innovation in an Australian context.

The professor is aware that the project will foster advancements that will utilize scientific information, including distant quakes and human motion, through lab and field examinations.

Research Professor Chris Moran at Curtin University acknowledges that the research project will “guarantee Australia’s inclusion in the most recent worldwide developments in fiber optic acoustic detection technology”.

As part of this venture, Curtin will collaborate with CSIRO, Woodside, and the top seismology, fiber optic detecting, and geoscience research companies like Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Silixa Ltd.

About the Global Innovation Linkages Program

Global Innovation Linkages Program, a Federal Government program, provides subsidizing, so Australian organizations and scientists can collaborate with worldwide accomplices to drive bold, cutting-edge research in needy areas.

In order to be eligible for the award, one’s venture should involve an Australian company, another Australian element, and perhaps one international partner, and must fall under at least one of our six categories:

  • Progressed fabricating.
  • Food and agribusiness.
  • Clinical advancements and drugs.
  • Mining hardware, innovation and administrations.
  • Oil, gas and energy assets.
  • Network protection.
