Edmonton’s Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc., has commenced a Powerwave well stimulation campaign in India, involving 10 water injecting and oil producing wells with an approximate value of US $258,000.

“We are happy to have started the Powerwave program in India and are very pleased with initial results on the water injection well,” said Wavefront President and CEO, Brett Davidson. “We continue to receive international interest for Wavefront’s leading edge Powerwave custom stimulation approach and believe the company will be adding to its growing roster of distributors in key oil producing regions in the near term.”

A post-Powerwave stimulation injection test completed on the first water injection well indicated that the water injection rate exceeded previous stimulation outcomes which utilized other methods but the same chemical formulations.

An additional four wells have been modelled and operationally programmed to be completed.


Mobilization of equipment for a second Powerwave-driven acid stimulation is on-going.

Wavefront utilizes fluid injection technology for improved/enhanced oil recovery and groundwater restoration.
