EDMONTON, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/13 -- Wavefront Technology Solutions Inc. (TSX VENTURE: WEE) (OTCQX: WFTSF) a developer of leading-edge technology for fluid injection optimization in the primary focus areas of performance drilling; well stimulation; and mature field revitalization is pleased to announce that Powerwave Neptune valve installations with Ecopetrol, Colombia have now commenced.
Ecopetrol is the largest petroleum company in Colombia and is one of the 25 largest petroleum companies in the world. Ecopetrol operates 163 production fields in Colombia, directly and/or in association with other important domestic or multinational operators. The approximate US $600,000 Powerwave contract is being led by the Flow Assurance Group of Ecopetrol.
The Neptune is an innovative pulsating selective injection waterflood regulator valve. Waterflood regulator valves are designed to inject water into a desired zone but are often plagued by scaling issues which inhibit water injection. This type of injection system is widely used in South America and Asia with as many as 21 valves in a single water injection well.
"We are very confident that the Powerwave Neptune valve will generate the anticipated results for Ecopetrol leading to wide spread use," said Wavefront President and CEO Brett Davidson. "With approximately 17,000 water regulator valves installed in South America this represents a significant opportunity for Wavefront in the region."
