North Australian Centre for Oil and Gas (NACOG)

The North Australian Centre for Oil and Gas (NACOG) is a hub located at Charles Darwin University for training and education programs (both on campus and externally through distance learning) together with research capabilities targeted at the specific needs of oil and gas operations and developments in the region.

Darwin sits adjacent to major offshore gas, oil and condensate reserves and is already a substantial gas processing and supply & service hub for projects off northern and north-western Australia.

The scale and expected long life of planned and proposed developments, as well as the distance from research, education and training facilities in southern capitals, highlights the need for Darwin to boost its training and research infrastructure in support of the petroleum industry.
