Toronto, Ontario and New York, New York–(Newsfile Corp. – April 12, 2018) – Micromem Technologies, Inc. (CSE: MRM) (OTCQB: MMTIF) (“Micromem”) (“the Company”) through its wholly owned subsidiary Micromem Applied Sensor Technologies, Inc. (MAST), is pleased to report on the successful launch of our ARTRA-171 Oil Well in situ Tracer Detection Platform at the recent ABU Dhabi Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE) global workshop on “Improved Decision Making through Tracer Technology”. The technical presentation on the new product innovation was well received by the conference audience. Steven Van Fleet, President of MAST, met with principles from many of the major tracer detection service companies and major end users and demonstrated the product functionality and performance levels. As a result of this conference MAST has prepared and issued twelve commercial proposals that include product sales and/or licensing for regional sales and marketing representation for various jurisdictions around the world. In addition, licensing proposals involving technology transfer and long-term licensing revenue back to MAST are in progress with the major oil and gas service provider companies. These twelve proposals do not include our current oil & gas partner and represent global distribution of this product.
The product was formally released at the conference and was displayed operationally. The ARTRA-171 is ruggedly designed to be located at the gas/oil field and has the functionality of bringing central laboratory parts per trillion (ppt) detection capability, cost effectively, to the field. This results in high tracer chemical savings, faster and more intelligent analysis of tracer detection curves, since multiple samples per day can be taken.

Per our press release dated January 23, 2018, the ARTRA-171 tracer detection platform is now available for sale and shipment to our clients. MAST is offering two versions of the product. The released product is designed to be used in a project trailer at the gas/oil field. The second configuration is designed to sit directly on an oil well and includes an automated, drone serviceable sampler. For each configuration MAST has a patented sample preparation system which prepares the sample for the AROMA platform. Both systems are autonomous and require little or no operator intervention, including the sample taking, date and time stamping and subsequent sample storing until processed by the AROMA platform.
Steven Van Fleet, President of MAST reports, “This product clearly changes the dynamics of the tracer detection marketplace. It clearly has the ability to eliminate the human safety issues with manual sampling in a dangerous environment, it allows for sample taking and holding in those situations where environmental conditions preclude getting an operator to a well, it significantly reduces the high cost of tracer chemicals by delivering to the field ppt level detection and equally important, allows for dynamic sampling frequency. As the tracer concentration increases at arrival to the well, the interval frequency between testing can be reduced so as to capture the absolute peak concentration of the tracer. In the case of fracking applications where there is a critical time line for decisions, having high precision ppt detection capability in the field radically changes the dynamics of the fracking operation.”
