ResFrac Featured as Pioneering Software Technology in Hart Energy’s 2023 Hydraulic Fracturing Techbook

ResFrac initiates the process by building a “why” model using first principle physics. “Once we have a model that accurately describes how things are acting in the rock, we apply algorithms that use data analytical techniques,” ResFrac COO, Garrett Fowler said. “Optimization algorithms run a variety of hypothetical simulations—moving a well 50 feet deeper, for example, or using twice as much fluid—to determine the best next step in the development process.”

Frac Tech: Simulation Sheds Light On Complex Relationships Between Parent-Child Wells

HOUSTON– Hess Corp. applied advanced numerical modeling and simulation to better understand complex relationships between a horizontal parent and two vertical child wells completed in the Middle Bakken formation. The results not only help make sense of diverse parent/child well observations, but also shed new light on effective frac length, the impact of frac hits on parent well production, proppant distribution and “trapping,” and more.
