Breakthrough technology for prospecting for oil & gas on land and offshore

Direct Detection of Hydrocarbons (oil & gas) – from aircraft, ships  and soon, fleets of self-propelled, programmable buoys
In classic exploration and production programs for conventional hydrocarbons, airborne or marine magnetics is used to map the underlying magnetic crystalline basement rocks as a reconnaissance tool to confirm the existence and thickness of a sedimentary basin and possibly some structural features. However, for many decades, it has been noted by a handful of geologists that there appears to be small, subtle magnetic anomalies in the shallow sedimentary section seemingly associated with oil/gas fields.
As it turns out, these magnetic anomalies occur in the gas plume overlying most oil fields. These shallow anomalies at normal aeromagnetic altitude are usually not observed due to their small amplitude, lack of magnetometer resolution or, if they are noted, they are ignored and filtered out due to the requirements for mapping and contouring magnetic field for mapping basement rocks at depth. The full explanation for these magnetic anomalies is known to very few explorationists. In fact, almost no one among the handful who has ever noted these micromagnetic anomalies over these many decades is aware of all aspects of the source of the magnetic anomalies.
The genesis of these anomalies must be appreciated, however, if one wishes to capitalize on their unique properties for both direct detection of oil & gas AND for optimal location of shale gas wells. Why is it important to know these facts? The plans and procedures for conducting surveys are fundamentally different as based upon such knowledge, as is the instrumentation, data collection, real-time analysis, in-field follow-up, interpretation and much  more. In fact, the more one has flown conventional magnetic surveys for classic depth-to-basement purposes, the less likely such surveys for direct detection will be successful. And, applied to shale gas makes this even more critical.
Exploration personnel are, by their nature, conservative, understand geology and seismic but less than 1% are even knowledgeable in magnetics. Thus, the observations of these magnetic anomalies and their possible association with oil fields were never widely exploited by our industry in finding hydrocarbons --- until now.
