NXT Energy Solutions Inc. (“NXT” or the “Company”) (TSX-V:SFD; OTCBB:NSFDF). NXT advises that it has received the required approvals from the relevant government agencies in order to undertake its previously announced US$ 2.67 million South Asia SFD ® survey contract. Project planning is underway, and timing of mobilization will be assessed in conjunction with other Latin American SFD ® survey contract opportunities which NXT is in the process of negotiating. “We are very pleased that the challenge of clearing this regulatory hurdle has been met. Several potential clients have expressed interest in our service in South Asia, and have been waiting for this approval to be granted. We plan to aggressively pursue this market region. Our recent successes continue to build 2012 as a record year for NXT,” noted George Liszicasz, NXT President & CEO. NXT also advises that in June it delivered its recommendations on the SFD ® surveys which were conducted in 2012 in Argentina (US $1.65 million contract value) and in Guatemala (US $0.67 million contract value). Final progress billings totaling US $720,000 were issued for these two survey projects in June and contract revenues totaling US $2.32 million will be recognized in NXT’s Q2-2012 results. In addition, NXT reports that it has recently completed an expansion of its SFD® sensor systems, and intends to test this new survey capacity over existing resource plays and traditional oil plays in western Canada this month.
