Wavefront Energy & Environmental Services Inc. - Primawave(TM) to be deployed at former US oil refinery and terminal

    Pink Sheets:   WEESF

    EDMONTON, June 16 /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 four Primawave systems will be deployed in a commercial project
to facilitate accelerated clean-up of an estimated 80-acre former oil refinery
and terminal site operated by a major integrated oil and gas producer. The
implementation schedule for the first Primawave systems in what is anticipated
to be a multi-year, multi-system undertaking is being finalized by the
consultant, the refiner, and State authority.
    Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson stated, "At the former
refinery, oil field waterflood methodology will be implemented as a new
remedial approach to increase the speed and ultimate recovery of the ground
water contaminate. As an integral component of that waterflood, Primawave will
provide quicker and more uniform injection of the water to mobilize trapped
refined product. The contract is based on the company's conclusive outcomes
elsewhere in remedial fluid injections as well as in waterfloods."
    Mr. Davidson further commented, "This is a substantive opportunity for
Wavefront as in the United States there are 149 active oil refineries down
from 301 oil refineries in 1982. The likelihood that some form of remediation
is on-going at both active and closed sites is very high; hence a vast market
opportunity exists for Wavefront to deploy a large number of Primawave systems
at each site. Wavefront is seeing sound growth in adaptation of our
exceptional injection technology in both the energy and environmental sectors
and the Company awaits the addition of new adopters in the near term."
