Curtin Corrosion Engineering Industry Centre (CCEIC) has been conducting high quality research and providing expert consultancy services to oil and gas industry for more than two decades. The centre's services are diverse and catch the attention of many Australian and foreign companies. The industry will focus on practical problems and continue to encourage research to find out optimal solutions. With this broader perspective in mind, CCEIC keeps on exploring opportunities of working with industrial partners on challenging research assignments. It has developed joint projects in collaboration with some of the leading companies like Chevron Australia Pty Ltd and Woodside Energy Ltd.
The generous sponsorship from Chevron and Woodside has established the Chevron-Woodside Chair in CCEIC. This has helped the centre to grow multi folds and develop new projects. The centre also provides in house training to sponsors and to augment research activities, the centre is now relocated to Technology Park under the administrative control of the School of Chemical and Petroleum Engineering (CPE). With help from the sponsors, the centre is also seeking to expand industrial collaboration with major oil and gas producers and their suppliers.
The centre has dedicated staff and its research laboratory is well equipped with modern equipment to provide high quality customer service. The laboratory conducts testing as per ASTM, ISO, Australian and NACE standards.
The CCEIC has developed close ties with some of the leading national and international associations. It is a member of the ACA technical group steering committee of petroleum and chemical process industries and also a corporate member of ACA and NACE International.
