After gaining sufficient understanding of the potentially hydrogen conducting structure within the AOI, next step is to gain the spatial knowledge about it before planning to penetrate it with an exploration well. For this purpose, we recommend a couple of geophysical research technologies aiming to assess the structure shape, depth, degassing nature and flow rate, as well as several other parameters crucial for its further development.

It needs to be mentioned that these geophysical technologies are quite well known and proven through the decades of application in the field. However, the interpretation of their results may appear a bit un-orthodox to a by-stander. Yet, the conclusions drawn from this stage are perfectly logic, since they are based on the fundamental chemical and physical properties of hydrogen.
