The objective is to demonstrate the applicability of Normalizing Flows (NFs) to subsurface kriging from wells. We will show that after supervised training, we can generate multiple realistic samples of plausible earth models that match the observed wells. We observe that these samples produce uncertainty statistics that are correlated with the complex parts of the model. The applicability of this method is for areas nearby the original survey used for training. Finally, we compare the speed and quality of our solutions with those obtained using a traditional variogram approach.
