Venue Blakers Lecture Room, Ground Floor, Mathematics Building, The University of Western Australia.
Speaker Ray Shaw, Technology Manager at Woodside (Retired), Visitor at CWR, Centre for Water Research M023, The University of Western Australia (MO23)

“The production and marketing of Liquified Natural Gas has become one of Australia’s major exports. In the next few years it will rank among the top two export earners. This presentation outlines the process required to Liquefy, Transport and Regas LNG. It is based on the most commonly used process - C3, MR (propane pre-cooled, mixed refrigerant)

The industry has significance for CWR as both the export and import is carried out over jetties, often in very demanding sea-states.It will also highlight the environmental interfaces that must be controlled during the liquefaction and regassing"


Ray Shaw has had 40 years experience in the Oil and Gas industry in both onshore and offshore fields. After initially working in design and construction as a piping engineer, he moved into project management after completing a Masters of Oil and Gas Engineering at UWA.

Over the years Ray has been involved in the concept design, detailing, site fabrication and construction of many oil and gas facilities and supported business development groups with costs, schedule and feasibility data. The last 17 years have been specifically in the design, project delivery and construction of LNG systems and LNG trains. During this period Ray has been involved in all of Woodside’s LNG projects. He has also worked overseas for a number of other oil and gas companies.

Ray retired from Woodside as a Technology Manager late in 2013 and has been volunteering at Centre for Water Research since March as a student mentor and assisting as an interface between CWR, UWA and industry. Ray was a keen cricketer, footballer and athlete and now (knees permitting) a keen downhill skier.
