Simulation services to maximize return on investment
Turnkey fracture design and reservoir simulation services
Our hydraulic fracturing and reservoir simulation services apply to a broad range of applications
Following the right modeling workflow is critical for a successful project. Every ResFrac project includes a series of ‘checkpoint’ meetings at key junctures to keep stakeholders aligned and ensure strong engineering design principles.
Model construction and setup
Ingest data, set up an initial model, and present back to confirm everything has been communicated successfully.
Determine ‘key observations’ to be matched from field data. Plan the calibration process in advance. Then, vary parameters to achieve a match.
Align on the design variables to optimize. Perform a quantitative optimization for NPV, investment efficiency, or any other objective.
Design field implementation
Establish baseline performance expectations. Establish performance metrics, and try to minimize uncontrolled variables.
Compare actual production with predicted. What are the ‘key observations’ from the field data? How do they align with expectation? If there is variance, what are potential causes? Are there additional design changes to consider next?

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.
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.
The team has been consistently busy over the last few months, but somehow along the way, our ResFrac Endurance team hasn’t stopped racing and training, setting and achieving goals. We have some race reports to share about the last few months of achievements. Join us in cheering for our ResFrac crew!
