“Now one of the biggest if not the biggest operators in the Permian, also have one of the best reputations, their entry highlighted some amazing statistics.”

“Well know leaders in EOR, which has never been so important as it is in the current market. It makes you wonder how other operators would perform if they had access to the same R&D.”
