The physics of explorative electromagnetic methods for discovering hydrocarbon reservoir was reviewed. The shortcomings of each method were listed to seek how to improve its efficiency. Maxwell's postulates or equations apply to all electromagnetic methods of exploration and have enjoyed several years of successes. However, the common challenge of noise levels had nndermined the accuracy of electromagnetic methods. We propose that the noise level is due to multiple particulates interaction that attenuates signals. This challenge can be solved by considering the quantlllll mechanics of the interacting particles. Seven new electromagnetic postulates/equations have been enacted from literature and four of the postulates-tested. Hence, the applicability of the postulates has been affinned. Therefore if the computer codes of some of the postulates are developed it may resolve problems relating to noise and improve the efficiency of the methods for geological exploration.
