Point electromagnetic sounding technology (PEST) is a modern point tool for finding oil and gas deposits.


Ease of use and application make PEST technology an effective tool for quick and accurate decisions. It can always supplement seismic data for a more accurate prediction of hydrocarbon deposits.


Doing research on PEST technology does not require the use of bulky vehicles, large vessels or considerable human resources. You can operate from a small ship, or a small boat, aircraft, helicopter, unmanned vehicle, car or just on foot.


The work is carried out without any adverse effects on the environment, that is the TEMZ method is absolutely safe for the environment.


Using one set of equipment to conduct research and interpret the obtained information (to obtain a graphical model of the deposit) takes three times less time than in seismic surveys on a similar area.


It is possible to carry out research on inaccessible terrain - in forests, ponds, marine areas, wetlands, steep climbs, mountainous areas, etc.


The PEST method, by the nature of electromagnetic anomalies, can determine not only the shape, amount and coordinates of an object, but also determine how a positive structure (oil, gas, or water) is made.


The advantages of the PEST method in comparison with seismic prospecting are, first of all, reliability, and in addition high precision of field determination at depths exceeding 5000 m., and the possibility of determining oil and gas in non-structural, incl. tectonic, traps.


The method was tested during work in Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, USA, India, Nigeria, Antarctica and others. countries.
