Users of geoScout have found numerous valuable use cases for this product. One key use case is the ability to find offset wells data and verify the exact surface location for collision risk assessment. This feature has been particularly useful in the oil and gas industry where avoiding collisions between wells is crucial. Additionally, users have praised the product for its ability to provide a complete analysis of an area of interest with minimal additional information input. This has saved users a significant amount of time and effort, allowing them to focus on other important tasks.

Furthermore, customers have reported that geoScout provides them with a wealth of information that they need for their projects. Whether it's evaluating pools and learning the basics of geoSCOUT for educational purposes or locating land and associated wells that meet specific criteria, this product has proven to be a valuable resource. Users have also appreciated the software's ability to check the status of wells, facilities, and pipelines without having to rely on external tools like Excel for production analysis.

While many users have had positive experiences with geoScout, there have been occasional issues with lagging and loading freezing, although some days are better than others. Nonetheless, these issues do not detract from the overall usefulness of the product. Overall, geoScout is highly regarded for its ability to view properties on a map, create production plots, and analyze small-scale projects. For larger well sets, users tend to switch to Tableau for production analysis as it offers easier manipulation of plots.

In addition to its various applications within the oil and gas industry, geoScout has also been utilized in academic settings. Students have found it helpful for completing assignments related to their Intro to Petroleum classes, as it provides easy access to data and facilitates learning about different geologic concepts. The software's versatility makes it suitable for use by various departments including geology teams, research purposes, daily geology workflows, and understanding proximity to infrastructure. With its wide range of features, geoScout continues to be a valuable tool for users across different industries.

Easy Navigation: Many users have found the software easy to navigate, allowing them to quickly access the tools and features they need. They appreciate the intuitive interface and user-friendly layout that makes it effortless to find what they are looking for.

Helpful Customer Service: Numerous reviewers have praised geoScout's customer service for its helpfulness and responsiveness. Users value the support provided by the team, especially when they encounter any issues or need assistance with using certain features of the software.

Versatile Tools: Users have consistently mentioned how impressed they are with the versatility of the tools available in geoScout. The software offers a wide range of functionalities that cater to various needs and disciplines within petroleum labs. Whether it is evaluating reservoir properties, creating development plans, or visualizing oil and gas properties, geoScout provides robust tools that meet diverse requirements.

Difficult to find functions: Some users have mentioned that they found it challenging to locate certain functions within the software, which can make it less user-friendly. They felt that these functions are not easily accessible and require extra effort to find.

Overwhelming number of features: Several reviewers have expressed that the software has an extensive range of features, which can be overwhelming at times. This abundance of features can lead to confusion and make it difficult for users to navigate and utilize the software effectively.

Complicated template creation and saving process: Users have stated that they find the process of creating and saving templates in geoScout to be overly complicated. They feel that the steps involved in creating templates are convoluted and not intuitive, making it a time-consuming task. Additionally, having to save templates into their local computer adds an extra layer of inconvenience.

geoSCOUT is used in our daily geology workflow to gather information on currently producing and new wells and to understand competitor activity. Several departments are using geoSCOUT for research purposes and for understanding proximity to infrastructure.
  • Well ticket information.
  • Spatial analysis.
  • Query effectiveness.
  • Must have several geoSCOUT windows open at once (well ticket, main screen, others if using).
GeoSCOUT is ideal for daily oil and gas workflows of a geologist or engineer or for academic research purposes. Great for fluid analysis and production data and for understanding rig activity.
  • Allowed for efficient information gathering thereby decreasing turnaround time on projects.
  • Helpful for competitor analysis.
Accumap and geoSCOUT are similar but geoSCOUT is my preferred application. The usability and functionality of the application is much better than Accumap. Although not necessarily important, it is a more aesthetically appealing interface to work with.

My department is using the program. Students have access to it within a few labs at the University. It is mostly used for research purposes and within classes.
  • Visualizing locations of wells—the map view has many customizable features.
  • visualizing cross sections.
  • Cross sections are not always that visually appealing. Cross sections from Petrel look much better.
GeoSCOUT is well suited for basic subsurface geology. You cannot make 3D models like you can in other programs though.
  • Visualizing data
  • Integral part to research
  • Petrel E&P
GeoScout is very good for basic subsurface geology. It is fairly easy to use, once you figure out where different command buttons and functions are located. Data is already within GeoScout so you do not have to import anything. Petrel is much more powerful and provides a lot of tools for modeling and seismic visualization.

We use geoSCOUT for production analysis of third party production, to help create type curves assist in A&D valuations, understand completion trends, and investigate facility infrastructure in order to understand development implications. We also use mapping functions to help coordinate development planning and help define our undeveloped reserves. Our geology team uses the tool for strip logs, tops, and exploration functions.
  • Production Analysis tool is strong for quick decline work
  • Annotations functionality helps with defining potential projects
  • Export tools are useful in quickly dumping out raw data for analysis
  • Looking at large scale projects (ie province wide) is very cumbersome
  • Pipeline mapping can be complicated
  • Including salivate imagery would be useful
There are really only 2 tools in industry that have the function of geoSCOUT (the other being Accumap.) Both are similar. I'd recommend geoSCOUT for project/area specific work. I'd recommend Accumap for start-up companies who are trying to establish their 'playground' as it's easier to navigate province wide assets, whereas new maps are required for geoSCOUT.
  • It has allowed us to put together visually friendly presentations.
  • The information pulled from geoSCOUT helps us to understand competitor production in our areas.
  • The strip log tool has been useful in understanding how other companies have performed operations.
Accumap is also a similar tool. The two tools contain the same information, although geoSCOUT has extra modules which have been somewhat useful. For the most part, engineers pull raw production, completions and facilities data. geoSCOUT is better for visualizing plans and allowing toggling of different considerations using the layer manager.
