GAMLS (Geologic Analysis via Maximum Likelihood System) is a PC-based package that permits integration of core and log data followed by probabilistic clustering for defining flow units, identifying lithologies, and determining porosity, permeability, water saturation, and pay. Multi-well clustering forms the basis for correlations and development of geologic models. GAMLS is particularly useful for mineralogically complex or unconventional reservoirs (such as gas shales …). Also, GAMLS is often useful for generating missing data in old fields. Modules exist for velocity and pore-pressure modeling, upscaling, and seismic recalibration. For information on licensing or service work, see: ericgeoscience.com or email: e.eslinger@gmail.com
