- So in summary, we looked at three diverse asset classes today. The first example was from Avalon shale where we were able to get reliable stresses and assess the economics of the field and the basin. Second example was from offshore Gulf of Mexico where we were able to get direct stresses for optimal perforation assessment and realize that stress reversal is essentially two for the calibration. Third example was from the North Sea in a Brownfield reservoir that we were able to increase the oil recovery by enhancing the safe waterflood re-injection rate. Lastly, one final point I want to leave you today is that microfracturing is similar to a downhole rock mechanics lab. This is a very simple and effective technique to improve reservoir management. Thank you.
