NERA provides industry-matched funding and support to collaborative lighthouse projects across Australia.
NERA is supporting a landmark study that could lead to a significant reduction in CO2 emissions whilst also improving Australia's energy security.
Through this collaborative and industry-led project, Perth-based project partner Linch-pin will investigate the engineering feasibility of a new decommissioning method for the offshore oil and gas industry.
This collaborative project seeks generate a single overarching approval process for seismic activities in the North West of Australia for a period of at least five years, with the aim of easing regulatory burden, improving certainty and environmental outcomes when applying for and conducting seismic activities in the CSEP project area.
The $1 million Exmouth Integrated Artificial Reef is a unique project that will enhance marine habitat and recreational fishing opportunities by creating Australia’s first integrated artificial reef and the largest purpose-built reef habitat in Western Australia.
This project improved the quality of historical tropical cyclone data to enhance understanding of the risk profile for new and existing offshore infrastructure. This means better informed decision making, reduced engineering costs, improved operational efficiency and better the safety of workers.
NERA is leading the development of the National Decommissioning Research Initiative (NDRI) to improve community, regulatory and industry understanding of the impact of infrastructure on the marine environment.
With NERA's support, CD Power are successfully integrating solar, battery storage and gas generation technologies to create a reliable, low-carbon and economical alternative power supply for CSG wellsites.
NERA is supporting the commercialisation of Australian technology through a world-first field trial. CSIRO's Vesi™ technology has the potential to dramatically improve the accuracy of groundwater monitoring activities relating to in-situ recovery (ISR) operations.
NERA has partnered with The University of Queensland Centre for Natural Gas and industry operators to commercialise leading research that will improve the accuracy of the resource models used in the Coal Seam Gas (CSG) industry, contributing to more cost-effective resource planning.
NERA is supporting this collaborative industry–research–national authority project to improve and reduce uncertainties with environmental radiological impact assessments by expanding a national database of radiation concentration ratios of flora, fauna and soils in areas of Australia not previously surveyed.
This project has established a team of independent reviewers and contributors to document the latest work on the aquifers of the Surat Basin and broader GAB. It has published a peer-reviewed evidence-based body of knowledge for the GAB to inform how to best manage this finite water resource into the future.
This project, led by the University of Queensland's Centre for Natural Gas, aims to develop best practice methodology for gas sampling from water bores in order to differentiate and measure naturally occurring subsurface gases.
NERA, Toro Energy, Cameco Australia, Separation Engineering, Australian Nuclear Science Technology Organisation (ANSTO) and Strategic Metallurgy developed a research program to significantly reduce the processing costs associated with carbonate-hosted deposits.
