A novel technology investigates reservoir beds of oil, gas, freshwater, and thermal water deposits. The system, which uses electromagnetic frequency broadband sounding, gathers information to a depth of up to 7,000 meters. For effective operation on deposits, the technology draws up scientifically substantiated references for the allocation of injection wells.

The sounding system discloses and identifies mineral types; nonconventional hydrocarbons/shales; and dynamic changes, including the process of mass movement. Using a helicopter or small airplane, deposits in swamps, mountains, and other hard-to-reach places can be explored, and a system information model can be constructed. The method is ecologically safe, and searches are achieved in abnormal operation conditions, including crystalline shield, salt beds and pillars.
