We appreciate the comments by Yin, Ma, and Gomez on our recent paper on shale reservoir modeling by primarily using data from horizontal wells (Wang et al., 2018). Three “unclear or suboptimal” points were proposed by Yin et al. (2020), and we will respond to these three points one by one

In three-dimensional (3-D) geological modeling, well data, including core testing data, logs, and so on, are limited because of the size of the target reservoir inside a study area. As pointed out by Deveugle et al. (2018), the sampled data in wells are only an...
