Congratulations to Long Pipes, SCT Operations and Stochastic Simulation announced as finalists in the Australian Technologies Competition (ATC) for 2016.

These three finalists from the Energy Resources Technology category have progressed to the next round, following on from the extensive mentoring and business plan judging by the competition's panel of experts. With a focus on building global success stories, the judges are looking for not only the best technologies but also the best managers and the best business plans.

Long Pipes (WA) - Long Pipes' Fluid Highway is a continuous joint-free pipe, produced at 20kms/day using composite pipe technology cured onsite to provide the lightest, strongest, toughest, fastest to install, longest lasting, cheapest solution for long distance transportation of gases and fluids.

SCT Operations (NSW) - SCT Operations' ANZI cell is a device that measures the three dimensional in situ stresses in rock, a key parameter in mining, tunnelling, and related industries.

Stochastic Simulation (WA) - Stochastic Simulation’s ResAssure is a revolutionary reservoir simulation tool for the upstream oil and gas industry that enables the industry to confidently make development decisions with previously unmatched confidence and speed.

Competition organiser, John O'Brien said that this year, ATC16 has partnered with the Federal Government's Industry Growth Centres, including NERA, to identify and work with technologies from the Government's priority sectors.

The final award winner will be announced at the Australian Technology Company of the Year 2016 gala dinner in Sydney on 2 November.
