Advancing petroleum exploration and production

The Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

CSIRO has a Strategic Alliance Agreement with Petronas, the national petroleum company of Malaysia. The agreement builds on the long relationship between the two organisations and formalises collaborative activities, including petroleum exploration and production, advanced materials, clean coal technology and renewable energy.

CSIRO and Petronas have co-developed an adhesive composite material called PIPEASSURETM which is used to repair damaged oil and gas pipelines.

Improving diagnostics for avian diseases

CSIRO supported laboratory capacity building in improved diagnostics for the National Veterinary Laboratory in Ipoh, Malaysia through the CSIRO Australian Centre for Disease Preparedness (ACDP) Regional Program. The endeavour focused on improving diagnostics for Avian Influenza and the Newcastle disease in poultry.

This work was supported by a World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) twinning project which concluded in 2012.

Since then the ACDP has maintained close relations with the Ipoh National Veterinary Laboratory. CSIRO also continues to be included in annual regional workshops and diagnostic proficiency testing rounds through regional programs funded by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and facilitated by Malaysia.

Improving forestry sustainability

Sarawak's Planted Forest Project aims to improve the sustainability of tropical forestry with the Sarawak State Government allocating half a million hectares of land for this project. One third of the land will be set aside for conservation, one third for use by the traditional ethnic communities and one third for plantation forestry. CSIRO is supplying technical expertise to create the highest quality plantation possible with the available technology.
