TORONTO --Norwegian EM Technology has contracted Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies to develop a 3D electromagnetic hydrocarbon survey tool.

"NEMT needs a small, directionally sensitive magnetic sensor with a sensitivity in the pico-Tesla range that allows a high sampling rate," says Marius J. Mes, NEMT engineering manager. "This sensor needs to be combined with a directionally sensitive electrical sensor, a technology that MASTInc. also possesses."
