The Fracture Research and Application Consortium (FRAC) is an alliance of scientists from the Bureau and the departments of Petroleum and Geosystems Engineering and Geological Sciences that seeks fundamental understanding of fractures and fracture processes dedicated to conquering the challenges of reservoir fractures. The research team, led by Co-Principal Investigators Steve Laubach , Jon Olson (PGE), and Randy Marrett (DGS), includes Julia Gale, Jon Holder (PGE), Kitty Milliken (DGS), Sergey Fomel, Rob Reed, John Hooker, and graduate research assistants. The ultimate goal of this research is to improve the efficiency and success of hydrocarbon exploration and production.
