Chris Hewson

Senior Simulation Engineer

Chris Hewson is a Reservoir Simulation Engineer with ResFrac responsible for programming the reservoir simulator of ResFrac.

Prior to joining ResFrac, Chris was a Reservoir Simulation Engineer at Cenovus Energy, where he worked on an internal reservoir simulation software for modeling thermal oil recovery, a history matching and optimization software, and shifting the software to cloud use. Prior to Cenovus, Chris worked for The Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research working on reservoir simulation studies and software for NOCs, Majors and Independent oil companies across the Middle East and Europe. During his internship, Chris worked at Equinor in Norway as a Reservoir Engineer evaluating offshore heavy oil completion techniques.

Chris obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Calgary and a Master of Science degree in Petroleum Engineering from Delft University of Technology.

Chris is passionate about backcountry skiing, mountain biking, and golf (he formerly worked as a golf pro). He’s married to a wonderful Wisconsinite who, despite his best efforts, refuses to switch to the metric system. They have an energetic 3-year-old son who loves trucks, cars, and basically anything that moves.
