    Knowledge of the present-day in-situ stress distribution is greatly important for better understanding of conventional and unconventional hydrocarbon reservoirs in many aspects, e.g., reservoir management, wellbore stability assessment, etc. In tectonically stable regions, the present-day in-situ stress field in terms of stress distribution is largely controlled by lithological changes, which can be predicted through a...
