I think if Halliburton does not produce a Cement Lab Test Result for the cement that was used, they can use their 4th qtr reporting earnings of 7.1 billion of 2011. I know for a fact if you lose a paper copy their is a copy on many hard drives, they had to work real hard to lose this evidence, the cementer had one, the cement coordinator, bulk plant foreman, email, fax machines, Sales rep, Technical Advisor, I know because I had nearly 30 years of service their.
