Professor Eric May

Professor May is the Chevron Chair in Gas Process Engineering and one of two lead researchers in the National Geosequestration Laboratory (NGL)

His research has developed breakthrough techniques for measuring gas properties under extreme conditions and providing critical data to advance the computer models used to design and optimise gas processing plants.

Together with Winthrop Professor Mike Johns, Eric leads the Fluid Science and Resources Division in natural gas research, covering areas of LNG production, CO2 sequestration and gas processing, including the development of alternative methods for removing CO2 and nitrogen from natural gas. Eric's work spans the areas of phase behaviour, separations, fluid properties and flow assurance. 

UWA's expertise across the LNG value chain is  captured in a new brochure, LNGenious, which was released December 2014 and includes a Chinese language version  

Two workshops on Gas Processing and LNG Production will be held 20-24 July 2015.

Eric and his team are looking forward to participating in the 18th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas, held in Perth in April 2016.
