TORONTO and NEW YORK, March 14, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Micromem Technologies Inc. ("Micromem") (CSE:MRM) (OTCBB:MMTIF) through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies Inc. (MAST), is pleased to announce they have executed a Memorandum of Understanding ("MOU") with Entanglement Technologies Inc. www.entanglementtech.com, a California based research and development company, to Develop an Interwell Tracer In-line Field Hardened Sensor Detection Platforms.
MAST is leading the industry in delivering in line sensor platforms that are capable of detecting nanometer size magnetic particles and concentration less than 1 part per billion. The scaling and industry wide deployment of nanoparticles, as a viable alternative to current interwell tracers, remains a challenge that the oil industry continues to commit significant resources to. MAST is also now working with its clients in developing conservative nanoparticles. The decision to partner with Entanglement Technologies Inc. represents a strategic move that will ensure that our clients will overcome many of the inefficiencies of the current interwell tracer sampling and test process. This has opened up previously unannounced opportunities for MAST.
Tony Miller, CEO Entanglement Technologies, says, "Entanglement Technologies' disruptive vapor sensing technology will deliver market-changing solutions in precision sensing in application spaces ranging from hydrocarbon detection to explosive threat identification. This novel technology, combining the best features of cavity-ring-down spectroscopy and gas chromatography, is rapidly developing to replace entrenched sensing technologies. This solution will transform the tracer detection landscape by allowing for real-time autonomous well-head sampling and analysis of produced fluid for ongoing reservoir monitoring, management, and intelligence. Providing producers with high quality real time data will enhance well productivity and reservoir management. Entanglement Technologies is proud to partner with MAST to bring this technology into a new market."
The in line product is scheduled for field trials within a year. MAST has the responsibility for deploying this technology to its industry partners.
MAST is proud that it has been working with the industry leaders and has been selected as a company capable of delivering on complex problems. Having our technology integrated in the systems of fortune 20 oil companies on a global scale is a clear validation of our solutions.
