The science behind RAFT
This presentation clearly explains how CSIRO's innovative RAFT Technology results in better polymers. (11 pages)
CSIRO and RAFT: an overview
This presentation describes the relationship between CSIRO and the breakthrough RAFT Technology. (11 pages)
The Walmajarri Seasons Calendar
Indigenous ecological knowledge can tell us much about the ecology of northern Australia. Members of the Walmajarri language group worked with CSIRO staff to document and compile their Indigenous seasonal knowledge into a calendar. (1 page)
Unconventional gas brochure
CSIRO is conducting research that is aiding to support sustainable development of the coal seam gas and shale gas industries.
CSIRO is developing microseismic techniques that will improve our understanding of fracture processes. These techniques increase the value of data captured by microseismic monitoring.
Microbially enhanced coal seam methane brochure
CSIRO is currently developing a program on microbial enhancement of coal seam methane production, to understand the processes involved and how to apply that knowledge to replenish depleted and unproductive coal seams.
Unconventional gas reservoirs
CSIRO is developing innovative techniques to understand reservoir behaviour for efficient production from coal seam and shale gas reservoirs.
Sand production prediction
Sand production is a serious problem in many petroleum basins worldwide. It costs the oil and gas industry tens of billions of dollars annually. CSIRO has developed capability and unique models to predict sand production and its severity – a key step in tackling sand production problems.
Unexpected and uncontrolled sand production results in costly well intervention work and, in some cases, can result in environmental hazards due to the release of hydrocarbons associated with catastrophic wellhead and production equipment failure. CSIRO has developed capability and predictive tools for sand management to address this issue and to minimise or mitigate these hazards in the oil and gas industry.
CSIRO has developed capability and predictive tools for sand erosion challenges in the oil and gas industry. We assist industry to address their sand erosion issues and seek to predict, minimise or mitigate these hazards.
Downhole robot brochure
CSIRO has developed an autonomous and wireless downhole robot that measures key factors affecting production in petroleum wells.
