High Commendation - Engineers Australia (Vic) 2016
Category: Innovation, Research and Development
AMOG Technologies was awarded a High Commendation, recognising the company's innovative LGS® technology.
Longitudinally Grooved Suppression (LGS®) technology is a unique patented geometry that is set to revolutionise the offshore drilling industry.
Inspired by a previous study of the saguaro cacti, LGS® has been tested by AMOG Technologies Pty Ltd for application to the offshore oil and gas industry's Drilling Riser Buoyancy Modules (DRBMs). The 2-tiered iterative testing campaign illustrated ~30% reduction in drag forces on drilling risers (with no loss of buoyancy), reduced dynamic fatigue loading, and suppression of vortex-induced vibration (VIV).
LGS® has the potential to deliver improved uptime and safety for offshore personnel, and annual savings of up to USD$12M per rig.
Winner - Engineers Australia Award of Excellence 1995
Winner - Engineers Australia Award of Excellence 2011
Category: Infrastructure Projects over $20 Million.
AMOG was awarded the Engineers Australia 2011 Award of Excellence, recognising the company's involvement in the West Seno Mooring Refurbishment Project.
When the mooring for Asia’s first deep water hydrocarbon development reached the end of its life, earlier than expected, AMOG stepped in to replace it. In a world first, the mooring of an on-stream production facility in 1000m water depth was redesigned, upgraded and replaced; without interruption to operations. Demonstrating Australian engineers have the smarts to support a major oil company from brainstorming through to offshore trouble shooting, AMOG designed, documented, specified and supervised the successful refurbishment, giving the facilities mooring another 20 years’ operation and adding vital knowledge to the engineering community from a JIP and research activities.
Winner - Monash Business of the Year 2010/2011
AMOG was presented the award for Business of the Year at the Monash Business Awards held at the Wheelers Hill International on Friday July 29th. Managing Director and company founder Dr Andrew Potts (pictured below accepting the award) said that the company has enjoyed its long affiliation with the City of Monash.
AMOG has been headquartered in Notting Hill, adjacent to Monash University, since 1991 and continues to employ engineers from the local area as well as from around the country and overseas. ‘My connections to the City of Monash go back a long way’ he said in a statement. ‘The Monash University connection made the City of Monash a great place to grow a business like AMOG’
Joint Finalist - Sydney Engineering Excellence Awards 2014
Categories: Engineering for Regional Communities and, Environment and Heritage
AMOG was a joint finalist with State Water Corporation and Geotechnical Engineering in the Sydney Engineering Excellence Award for work on the Burrendong Dam Temperature Control Structure. The installation of a temperature control structure at Burrendong Dam in Central West NSW is set to benefit communities along the Macquarie River and improve river health by enabling warmer water from the surface of the dam to be released downstream instead of cold water from the bottom of the dam. AMOG went on to be a joint winner in one of these categories.

Winner - Best Paper 2015
Conference: SNAME (Texas Chapter) Conference
AMOG is proud to announce that Tim Lee, Vice President of AMOG Consulting, Inc. and presenting author, was awarded best paper at the SNAME Symposium held in Houston, Texas last week. Co-authored by Robert E. Melchers (University of Newcastle), Iwona B. Beech (University of Oklahoma), Andrew E. Potts and Andrew A. Kilner (AMOG), the paper was entitled, “Microbiologically Influenced Corrosion (MIC) of Mooring Systems: Diagnostic Techniques to Improve Mooring Integrity*” and presented an overview of the most recent research regarding factors influencing rates of conventional corrosion and MIC (as defined in the SCORCH Joint Industry Project).
