Ecopetrol in Colombia to Utilize the Highly Successful Powerwave Custom Well Stimulation Approach

EDMONTON, Alta., Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc. (Wavefront or the Company, TSX-V: WEE; OTCQX: WFTSF), a global leader in the advancement of fluid injection technology for oil and gas well stimulation and Improved/Enhanced oil (“IOR/EOR”) recovery, is pleased to announce that the Company’s local distributor has received an initial service order from Ecopetrol having an approximate value of US$110,000.

Ecopetrol is the largest petroleum producer in Colombia and is one of the 50 largest petroleum companies in the world. In Colombia Ecopetrol operates 163 production fields directly or in partnership with other domestic or multi-national oil and gas companies. In addition, Ecopetrol has production interests or activities in Brazil, Peru, and the Gulf of Mexico.

The current service order is for the Tibu oil production field where Powerwave has been successfully employed to enhance oil production in an on-going waterflood project. The Tibu field encompasses a large oil producing area and the production block where the Powerwave custom stimulations are to be executed contains 530 oil producing wells. Each of these wells can be considered candidates for future Powerwave custom stimulations.

“We are very pleased to have this new, initial order from Ecopetrol who has been a major contributor to Powerwave’s acceptance in Colombia,” said Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson. “Wavefront remains confident that consistent positive results will lead to increased Powerwave activity in all jurisdictions where the Company maintains a presence and we look forward to receiving additional orders from Ecopetrol in the near term.”
