Wavefront Energy & Environmental Services Inc. - Rodney South Powerwave(TM) project update

    Pink Sheets:   WEESF

    EDMONTON, March 10 /CNW/ - Wavefront Energy and Environmental Services
Inc. ("Wavefront"), a leader in technology development and implementation for
improved oil recovery and optimized groundwater remediation wishes to provide
an update on positive injection results for the Powerwave installations in the
Rodney South farm-in agreement with Greentree Gas and Oil Ltd. In Rodney
South, Powerwave has been shown to increase injection rates by an approximate
factor of five versus conventional injection. Injectivity index, a measure of
the volume of water injected per psi pressure, was 0.11 without Powerwave and
0.52 with Powerwave. The magnitude of the water injection rate increase is
consistent with previous data collected in other Powerwave projects and
demonstrates the effectiveness of the process over a varied range of
geological conditions.
    Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson stated, "The big win is always
improved oil recovery and extending field life but before those can be
achieved there has to be a volumetric balance in the system. Consider water
injection into an oil reservoir as filling a bath tub. If the bath tub is
half-full then we are filling it five times faster than would normally occur.
At Rodney South approximately 9,000 barrels of water must be injected to
balance the system and re-establish pressure drive. Once this critical balance
is achieved measurable improvements in oil recovery are expected to follow.
With Powerwave we expect to fill the Rodney South 'bath tub' in about four
months versus approximately twenty months without it. We are very pleased with
this initial injection response and look to large gains in oil recovery
mimicking those reported to us by the international oil producer employing
Powerwave in Alberta."
    Greentree President Duncan Hamilton commented, "The magnitude of the
improved injection rates seen at Rodney South with Powerwave cannot be
achieved by any other means. Reducing the time to fill the pore space and
re-establish pressure drive by a factor of five means we will see a production
response much sooner than in a conventional waterflooding approach. The
expedited fill-up also means we should see an economic impact about sixteen
months sooner. Powerwave's ability to reduce waterflood response times may
change the way many companies think about waterflooding programs. As time
progresses we anticipate Powerwave will be expanded in Rodney South and
possibly in Greentree's other Rodney Units to awaken these mature assets,
extend field life and maximize production of reserves."
