      Thank you.

      PS: Please reply to "Pablo Vazquez" <mgingenieria@...>
      or to the list, not to me.

      My name is Pablo V�zquez and I�m working as a Reservoir Engineer for MG&A Oil
      and Gas Consulting company from Argentina. Last month we bought a WinGslib
      license in order to apply Geostatistic in our work. Now, we are studying some
      Geostatistic aspects such as experimental and theoretical variograms, 3-D
      kriging estimation techniques and 2-D and 3-D visualizing techniques to build
      a static model of an oil reservoir with 38 wells. We are using some log well
      data (Gamma Ray, Spontaneous Potential, etc) and we could obtain the
      variograms (1 vertical and many horizontal ones), then we fit them with two
      different functions (spherical and exponential) and we choose the best one in
      a subjective way. Later, we propose a 3-D grid and use the variograms in a 3-D
      kriging estimation process. Although we are lack of experience on Geostatistic
      we could obtain some valuable information from this analysis. However, we
      realize that there are many aspects that we couldn�t study yet.

      The purpose of this mail is to ask you some questions about the software and
      if it were possible to ask you for some advice. In the following list we show
      you some of our doubts:

      1. If is it possible to fit a semivariogram in an objective way such as by the
      minimization of the quadratic error (the variance or standard deviation)? What
      would be your recommendation?

      2. If is it possible to obtain an experimental cross-semivariogram with one
      variable only? (we ask you this because have seen a work that chose this type
      of experimental semivariogram to obtain a Gamma Ray spatial variation)

      3. Which are the steps that you recommend in order to do a variogram
      validation? Is there another technique than cross-validation?

      4. If is it possible to obtain a 3-D kriging output visualization with Gslib
      or are there only many 2-D slices? In the last case, do you recommend any
      other visualization software?

      5. If you only have well log data, what would be the best choice to perform an
      oil reservoir characterization: a 3-D kriging estimation technique or a 3-D
      simulation process?
