What Does Stoner Engineering Software Mean?

Stoner Engineer Software (SES) is a full-suite software solution designed to meet the needs of the horizontal and directional drilling industry. It is a specialized application targeting to well planning and execution. SES is the brainchild of petroleum engineer and programmer Dr. Mike Stoner. It is one of the tools available for trenchless technology specialists.

The purpose of Stoner Engineering Software is to help to determine the target area and provides steering guidance in how and where to drill. SES is able to communicate through the petroleum industry standard WITSML (Wellsite information transfer standard markup language).

As 3D technical geosteering software, SES provides quick-n-easy tracking of the directional drilling process. It serves as a robust database for wellbore information and provides both historical and real-time graphical representations of a wide variety of parameters. Data also includes time and cost factors.

SES uses patented fuzzy logic technology. Dr. Stoner’s enthusiasm for his work shows in the name of his website, which is based on a phrase that drillers love: “We’re makin’ hole!”
