Better fracs. Better wells. Better returns.

Get the physics right. Genuinely integrated hydraulic fracture and reservoir simulation.

The industry’s only fully coupled hydraulic fracturing and reservoir simulator

Fully integrated simulator

Multiphase flow, 3D fracture mechanics, proppant transport, poroelastic stresses, wellbore dynamics, and thermal effects. Mesh cracks as cracks.

Solve cutting-edge problems

Synthesize complex field-scale datasets to make practical decisions. Mitigate parent/child impacts, triple recovery factor with EOR, and design geothermal systems.

Proven impact on capital efficiency

Impacted 35+ operators by optimizing well spacing, cluster spacing, stage length, perforation design, fluid and proppant loading, and more.

Set-up for success

Industry-leading user-interface and cloud-based tools. Detailed documentation and training. Close collaboration with ResFrac’s expert team.

Test designs in a virtual environment before implementing them in the field

  • Integrate with your existing workflows Physics-based simulation is synergistic with data analytics and field data collection. Synthesize field data and accelerate the process of continuous improvement.
  • Two modes of engagement We offer direct software licensing, consulting services, or a mix of both. Solutions fit for any size company - from small independents to supermajors and NOCs.
  • Collaboration and experience We have worked with 35+ companies in every major shale plan in North America and co-authored 15 papers and case studies.

Two modes of engagement
We offer direct software licensing, turnkey consulting services, or a mix of both. Solutions fit for any size company - from small independents to supermajors to national oil companies.
Collaboration and experience
We have worked with more than 30 companies in nearly every major shale plan in North America and coauthored 15 papers and case studies.

In our collaborative industry studies, we work together with operators to solve the industry’s toughest problems.
In a Utica project, we applied learnings from our DFIT industry study to identify issues with the potential to cause suboptimal well spacing and 30%+ reduction in NPV.
ResFrac is the first and only single-platform for physics-based modelling of reservoir development throughout the entire lifecycle including stimulation, production, frac-hits, artificial lift changes and EOR. This gives our technical staff and company a definite competitive advantage. Chris Cheatwood, CTO of Pioneer Natural Resources

ResFrac Endurance Team takes on The Triple Bypass

Three brave ResFrac riders took on the Triple Bypass rider in Colorado on August 21. The Triple Bypass is a famous Colorado ride stretching 110 miles and climbing 11,000 ft between Evergreen, CO and Vail, CO.  Egor Donstov, Janz Rondon, and Garrett Fowler rode this year, sporting ResFrac jerseys and lively Mongoose tattoos. While Egor and Garrett enjoyed the views, Janz powered up the climbs, finishing in eighth in a field of over 500 riders in the 40+ category.

ResFrac user meeting

Last month we held our third annual ResFrac Symposium, where users presented case studies and panel discussions on industry topics. This year’s lineup featured six operator-speakers as well as guests from the DOE and an independent consultant. We had several talks centered around core workflows enabled by teams using ResFrac: collecting data, facilitating multidisciplinary discussions, calibrating to field diagnostics, and performing economic optimization of prospective designs.
