Post Geosteering Software
Hello,

I am looking for Geosteering Software but have no idea if there is any freeware or open source around.

I am also looking into a payed version, but I would also need some advice on what to buy if I do.

Thanks!
Ricardo

I am also looking for a free-trial geosteering software. I heard of "SES", but not sure how popular it is. Does anyone have it and wanna share?

We used SES at work for years and yes it is a solid program, but it has its drawbacks. It require a pretty beefy system to run smoothly, 64bit Windows OS and 32bit Microsoft Office Access (I dont get that at all, but you can not use 64bit office with it). It should be noted that it is very complicated. But as I said its solid, even if it is hard to use.

We recently switched to Rig Steer, and love so many things about it, like that you only need Excel installed to geosteer. It has built in tutorial videos and is very user friendly. It also runs well on average machines. I run it on a Windows 7 6gb machine.

I hope that helps

Since my first post Rig Steer has went through many updates and now has an instant license and trial activations.

As many others we also used SES for a long time, and we were quite happy with it.
But we decided to test some other solutions just to be aware of what is there on the market. We requested trial version from LMKR, LR Senergy, HSI, Geonaft, ROGII etc. I didn't have much time for the tests and I may be a bit superficial here, but most of all I liked Geonaft software from Geosteering Technologies Inc.
Geonaft is way more user friendly and nice looking than any other soft (Competing I guess only with Star Steer here). And, which is more important, it is more robust and more functional. It works well even on weak machines (Win 7, 2gb). You can choose which module you need for each specific project and pay only for it. I discussed it with my team and we decided that starting 2016 we are switching to Geonaft.

Please note that it is my personal opinion based on my experience and you may find some other soft more convenient.

Anyway, before making your final decision I suggest that you try 4-5 different providers and choose which you like the most. Pricing is relatively the same everywhere.
