Exploration, LLC Launches First "Direct Detection" Airborne Oil
July 11, 12:00 PM Pacific Time
Yorba Linda, California, July 11, 2006 - eField
Exploration, LLC., a privately funded corporation, has completed
their first "Direct Hydrocarbon Detection" airborne survey of 3100 lines miles with a unique
and proprietary Airborne EMT System.
For the first time, the eField EMT (Electro-Magnetotelluric)
Airborne system mapped 'Direct Hydrocarbon Indicators' reading
natural telluric currents that penetrate deep into the earth.
The survey, for a Houston based oil company targeted
hydrocarbons down to 20,000 feet and more.
While the use of Ground Electric & Magnetotelluric
Surveys are important oil & gas exploration tools, no one has
applied the science in an airborne system and focused on the
natural electric filed. Covered by several US patents, the
eField Airborne EMT System is the creation of Dr. Anthony
Barringer, credited by many as the leading inventor of Airborne
Exploration Technology including INPUT (now flown as Megatem by
Fugro), BP's Fluoroscan Airborne System and the Iontrace
technology (purchased by Smith's Aerospace), now used at every
airport worldwide for bomb detection.
Next Big Thing
eField's Airborne EMT System could be the "Next
Big Thing" for the Oil & Gas industry similar to the impact
Seismic had in the 1920's. Airborne " Direct Detection",
allows real-time oil & gas exploration at a fraction of the cost
and no environmental impact. eField's EMT Data Centre based in
Orange County, California is fed with daily downloads from
flight operations which can be visualized on the Web anywhere in
Detection From The Air
eField's Airborne EMT detects the presence of
hydrocarbons by reading patterns associated with natural
electric currents - Telluric currents which are induced by solar
flares and lightning and penetrate deep to the earth's core.
Charges effects occur at the interface of water and dissolved
hydrocarbons - an effect now called NFIP (Natural Field Induced
Polarization) in the literature. The accumulation of these
charges and their migration to the surface (seep columns) is
mapped by the eField Airborne EMT System.

"eField Exploration, LLC is committed to
developing leading edge technologies for the Discovery and
Recovery of Oil and Gas. We believe that our Airborne EMT
System will mark a new era in exploration not only for
hydrocarbons, but also for uranium and diamonds," said Ed
Johnson, President of eField.
Airborne EMT is a Direct Detection system unlike
other Indirect Systems being launched that rely on spectral
imaging, gravity or magnetic measurements. Indirect methods
like Seismic require time consuming interpretation leading to
many anomalies or targets that do not contain oil. Direct
Detection will significantly reduce costs and lead times to new
eField Exploration, LLC. is a private company incorporated in
2005 that was developed by The Edward Johnson Agency, Inc. a
consultancy, that for the last 20 years has specialized in
identifying new high technologies for development. eField's
Airborne EMT System is the result of a combined investment of
$15 million over the past 10 years.
