This improvement compared to legacy wells in the area was driven by the use of a higher viscosity slickwater fluid system, increases in frac stage length and other proprietary modifications.
A long-range airplane that's efficient at any stage length, the 787-10 will serve the airline's medium-range operations while partnering with the 777-9 for the carrier's long-haul routes.
Too many groups and bands rely too much on these stage length screens now, they certainly look impressive, but they can be used to hide in front of.
Their work thus contributes to existing literature and theory by shedding light on how key characteristics differentially shape air-travel demand and how these effects vary by stage length.
The airlines - V Australia, Virgin America and Virgin Atlantic - have significant stage length operations at Los Angeles that would permit them to maximise bio-derived jet fuel deployment at a single, shared location.
May and Montgomery (1986) found that there was a fall-off in saturation flow with stage length, which implies that longer cycles used by the Police in Bangkok are less likely to be efficient.

This paper takes a more comprehensive look at the use of shrimp life-history stage length statistics in the inference of growth characteristics and discusses the results in relation to current theories on the factors controlling sex change.
Longer average stage length (air travel) will keep operating costs down by reducing the number of take offs and landings and thus using less fuel.
Also, we have the lowest cost structure in the industry when you take into account our stage length (short-haul trips).
The covariates we tested were maternal age (years), weight gain during pregnancy (kilograms), tobacco use, preeclampsia, diabetes, parity, induction of labor with artificial rupture of membranes as sole method, induction with gel, oxytocin use, intrauterine pressure catheter use, artificial amniotomy, meconium-stained amniotic fluid, dystocia, first stage length, second stage length, mode of delivery (spontaneous vertex, vaginal breech, midforceps, outlet forceps, vacuum assisted), analgesia used during the first or second stage (nalbuphine, PCB, epidural, caudal, pudendal, local), nuchal cord, knotted cord, specialty of delivering physician (obstetrician or family physician), and infant weight (grams) and sex.
