    EDMONTON, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - Wavefront Energy and Environmental Services
Inc. ("Wavefront"), a world leader in fluid injection technology for
improved/enhanced oil recovery and groundwater restoration announces that the
commercial Primawave project with a world leading, integrated oil and gas
producer, first published on June 17, 2008 has commenced. The project,
expected to be a multi-year, multi-system undertaking, entails the use of
Primawave with waterflooding to accelerate the clean-up of a former oil
refinery and terminal site.
    Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson commented, "Primawave is an
accredited remediation technology having been awarded certification by
Environment and Industry Canada. With previous positive outcomes related to
Primawave at other locations employing a similar remedial program, Wavefront
foresees repeatable results at the 80-acre New York State site. Management is
confident that accelerated clean-up of this former refinery will lead to
multiple Primawave deployment at United States based refineries where there
exists 149 active and 152 former sites."
