Mark McClure, CEO and co-founder of ResFrac Corp., is today’s featured Forty Under 40 honoree.

McClure established startup software company ResFrac in 2018 after taking a professional risk by quitting his job as an assistant professor at the University of Texas at Austin only years earlier.

The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company backed by Altira Group provides a 3-D, cloud-based, fully-integrated fracture/reservoir simulator technology, which McClure developed from scratch alongside fellow co-founders Charles Kang and Soma Medam.

Today, ResFrac software is being used by 17 E&P companies in major shale basins across North America, serving oil and gas operators as a software-as-a-service solution.

“It is gratifying to see my work being integrated into operators’ processes and decision-making, into the direction of scientific literature,” McClure said.
