What do you like best?

I really liked the ability to look at production data when evaluating reservoir properties for my petroleum labs. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It has a lot of features that can get very overwhelming sometimes. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's a really good software to use, but there is a bit of a learning curve. But the features in it are endless. You can really do a lot with this program. I am using it at an undergrad level for things such as contour maps, net sand values, reservoir maps, etc... and I am really amazed at what it can do. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was using it to solve problems for my Intro to Petroleum class labs. Evaluating pools and learning the basics of geoSCOUT. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

geoScout allows me to check into different modules separately, which makes things more clear. This is the best part that I like about geoScout. Also, there is a function called the area of interest, which allows me to jump to the areas right away. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

geoScout charges in terms of different functions. For example, I need to pay for gDc additionally to import data into Mosaic to do economic analysis. And the way geoScout creates and saves templates is too complicated. I have to save the template into the local computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

check into the status of wells, facilities and pipelines. I don't need to do production analysis in Excel. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Creating maps using bubble maps, creating shapefiles and visualising oil & gas properties is very easy with GeoScout. Creating development plans based on maps of production and injection is easy due to the visualisation tools in GeoScout. The well ticket is very clean and easy to find required information and the production analysis window is great for viewing individual well and/or group production Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the features are not as user friendly as they could be. An example would be when you bring in a well list and you would like to view a multi-well production plot, you have to click the checkbox beside each well. This could be improved if you were able to click one, then shift+click the last one to select all. Annotating on the map is handy, but sometimes not the most user-friendly. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use GeoScout to view our properties on a map, create production plots and analyse small-scale projects. For larger well sets, we tend to use Tableau to analyse production as it is easy to manipulate plots in tableau to show many wells quickly. GeoScout is great for creating summary maps and for planning future development Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The GIS and well search engine are powerful..The export well header data and LAS logs functions are very flexible and user-friendly. There are modules for every discipline in petroleum, from drilling and well header information, through directional surveys, well logs, core analysis, well tests and production. The Qfind is a nice new addition, which allows users to access original reports. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the embedded cultural data, such as field and pool polygons are impossible to export with an attribute table, so they could be used in an external platform. Some simple functions, such as "go to well" in the well ticket, are amazingly counter-intuitive to find. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

geoScout is a powerful and flexible GIS for exploration, mapping and research. But you must be prepared to go through a steep-learning curve. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Easy to use, fast loading time, easy access Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Geoscout has really great customer service especially by phone. They're trying hard to consolidate all general data required for oil companies. Out of all the programs available out there, they're probably on the leading edge. The ability to print large, high quality maps is perfect. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The user interface is not intuitive. Sometimes key information is located in "modules" which have to be purchased. If you just can't figure out why something doesn't work the way it should, try holding "Cntrl". The training sessions offered to companies are also not very helpful, especially to advanced users. The graphing interface needs to be more functional, otherwise most users just export data from Geoscout and analyze it with a different software. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

From a geology perspective, Geoscout is a better choice compared to Accumap. From an engineering standpoint, I find Accumap to be easier to use. However, once you spend some time getting over the clunky interface and learn the non-intuitive cues, Geoscout proves to have the better data and information.

What do you like best?

Being able to view all wells and facilities in the province is helpful for the projects I have used. It is relatively easy to use geoscount, but requires a bit of patience. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

In high density areas, loading takes a bit of time, and it becomes a bit chunky, so ensure you have a powerful enough computer. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Any well/facility related project often uses this software to gain more information. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
