Q3 Financial and Operating Highlights

Key financial and operational highlights for the third quarter include:

Message to Shareholders

George Liszicasz, President, and CEO of NXT, commented, “Although no survey revenues were recorded in Q3, contract opportunities remain in discussion in our core areas of interest in Africa, North and South America, and South-East Asia. We remain highly confident in the approach we have taken to realize near term opportunities with National Oil Companies that have a long term strategic approach to the development of reserves. Given uncertain times, patience is required to reach definitive agreements.

I am pleased to update you on the progress of our new algorithms that assist in the interpretation of SFD® data in a manner that can be integrated more effectively with conventional seismic data interpretation. Over the last quarter we have prototyped mathematical data transformation routines to enhance the quality and repeatability of SFD® data. While the methods need final formalization and field testing, NXT expects that the eventual application of these transformations will allow the extraction of additional important information to increase the reliability of interpretation and to increase the overall efficiency of operations. These methods are also expected to provide the first steps towards algorithmic interpretation and to significantly increase the value that SFD® provides in the hydrocarbon exploration cycle.  

I am also pleased to announce that we extended our MOU with BGP Inc., a subsidiary of China National Petroleum Corporation, for an additional two years to further explore opportunities for NXT and BGP Inc. to work together. NXT’s forward strategy is to secure SFD® contracts with BGP and its affiliates.”
