    EDMONTON, Jan. 5 /CNW/ - Wavefront Energy and Environmental Services Inc.
("Wavefront"), a world leader in fluid injection technology for
improved/enhanced oil recovery and groundwater restoration is pleased to
announce that the Gulf Coast region, Powerwave-driven CO2 flood first
announced October 15, 2008 has been initiated.
    Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson stated, "Today's fluctuating
oil prices are placing oil companies under increased pressure to reduce
operating costs while optimizing recovery. Powerwave allows oil companies to
maximize value from their oil production operations by "rescuing stranded oil"
trapped in inaccessible nooks and crannies of the producing reservoir.
Compared to the economic and environmental cost of drilling more oil wells,
Powerwave increases overall oil recovery with minimal investment."
    Wavefront also announces that the Company will file, in accordance with
TSX Venture Exchange policy, a Summary Form disclosing the granting of an
aggregate of 600,000 incentive stock options pursuant to the Company's Stock
Option Plan. Of the 600,000 incentive stock options being granted, 500,000
incentive stock options are being granted to management and four directors of
Wavefront. The options will be exercisable at a price of $0.54 per share, for
a period of five years. The options are subject to a hold period of 4 months
and vesting period of 18 months, in accordance with the Company's Stock Option
Plan and Exchange policy.
