Ogust can apply quite happily to minors. Whether or not it's the best treatment is another matter

After a weak 2 in clubs (should you play it) 2D is probably better used as an enquiry, rather than 2NT, since anything greater than a rock bottom minimum will force you past 3 of your suit. After 2D you can still stop in 3D using Ogust, since it is only maximum hands that go past 3D.

Having said that, I prefer 2NT as a high card feature ask after a weak 2 in a minor, and a shortage feature ask after a weak 2 in a major, since after a minor you're more likely to need a stopper for 3NT, as 5 of a minor is a long way off
