    EDMONTON, Feb. 25 /CNW/ - Wavefront Energy and Environmental Services
Inc. ("Wavefront"), a leader in technology development and implementation for
improved oil recovery and optimized groundwater remediation processes is
pleased to announce that Primawave was successfully implemented at an active
gasoline retail outlet to optimize the injection of a remedial fluid. The
gasoline retail outlet, located in Orlando, Florida is operated by a major
convenience store chain having 1,623 outlets that sell gasoline. Prior to
Primawave the site had been subjected to four previous attempts of limited
success to inject the remedial fluid intended to neutralize methyl tert-butyl
ether (MTBE) impacting groundwater quality. In the four previous injection
attempts delivery of the remedial fluid met with difficulty where the fluid
could not be contained in the subsurface. In the recently completed injection
Primawave outperformed conventional injection approaches permitting the entire
fluid volume to be injected while at the same time containing it to the
subsurface.
    Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson commented, "MTBE is a gasoline
additive as well as one of the most common groundwater pollutants and is of
considerable environmental concern in the approximate 200,000 gasoline retail
outlets in the United States. Consider the groundwater aquifer as the patient,
the contaminant the ailment, and the remedial fluid the cure. Whether it is a
gas station, an oil refinery, or an industrial site being remediated through
the use of 'in-ground' remedies, the ability to optimally deliver the cure is
paramount for the reduction in pollutant concentration levels. If we can't
deliver the remedy we can't cure the patient. Primawave achieves pin-point
injection of the remedy, even under the harshest conditions, giving the
environmental sector greater ability to meet the challenges of groundwater
clean-up."
    Wavefront also wishes to announce that it will file, in accordance with
TSX Venture Exchange policy, a Summary Form disclosing the granting of an
aggregate of 210,000 incentive stock options pursuant to the Wavefront's Stock
Option Plan. The stock options are being issued to the six directors of the
Company. The options will be exercisable at a price of $1.65 per share, for a
period of five years. In accordance with Wavefront's Stock Option Plan and
Exchange policy, the incentive stock options are subject to a hold period of 4
 months and vesting period of 18 months.
