George Reed posted this article in Chevron's group on LinkedIn, and I commented:
Thank you for this article, George. I just watched a terrific talk that Jeff Immelt gave at Stanford a couple of years ago. Because we live in a highly networked world, he said, it is important to be open to relationships and be willing to forge partnerships. This alliance between two giant companies could really move the needle on technology innovation, especially in an era of abundance for the oil and gas industry!
Thank you for reading, and let me know what you think!
