Woodside supports a new research centre in Western Australia

In partnership with The University of Western Australia (UWA) and Chevron, we launched the Centre for Long Subsea Tiebacks at UWA. The Centre will drive research into new subsea engineering technologies for offshore oil and gas production and maintain Western Australia's competitiveness in the LNG market.

How we work

Innovation enables us to discover, develop and test ideas and solutions that can improve the way we work across our entire business. 

Innovative thinking shapes everything we do at Woodside, from the design of our facilities to the commercial arrangements that underpin them, and the way we and our joint venture partners interact with others in resource development.

It's about doing more than building a better workplace or industry sector. Through our collaborative partnerships, we also help build society's collective knowledge and develop the workforce of the future.
