Education, training and community outreach are important components of NGL’s capability development. NGL will provide a training ground for researchers to further their knowledge, to enable the identification of safe and secure underground storage for carbon dioxide and setting benchmark health, safety and environmental standards for future commercial-scale carbon storage projects.
The NGL research partners – CSIRO, The University of Western Australia (UWA) and Curtin University – are providing targeted postgraduate educational programs in CCS research that will help to position NGL as an international leader in this field.
NGL is set up to attract top visiting researchers interested in addressing the challenges of major CCS opportunities available in Australia, through projects such as the South West Hub project.
The NGL collaborators are all internationally renowned research institutions, and are working closely with their international partner organisations to ensure NGL maintains a program of high-profile visiting researchers. All three institutions are also planning for strong growth in their pools of research fellows, via schemes delivered by the Australian Research Council.
CSIRO, UWA and Curtin have a track record for delivering successful educational outcomes in CCS-related areas of science and engineering, and for developing industry-ready talent. NGL will further enhance this capacity by providing state-of the-art facilities and equipment as well as more ‘hands-on’, industry-relevant training opportunities.
