Petrophysical Evaluation of H-field, Niger Delta Basin for Petroleum Plays and Prospects


As a result of a combination of several methodologies, the H-Field, Niger-Delta, has been delineated. To identify probable reservoirs, seals, and source rocks in the study area, this study integrates sequence stratigraphy with petrophysical concepts through a comprehensive analysis of 3D seismic and well logging datasets. According to the 3D facies model, reservoirs are dominated by sand and are laterally extensive. They were then upscaled and stochastically distributed to create a 3D reservoir property model. On average, the porosity of these clastic reservoirs ranges from 22 to 28%. Reservoir net-to-gross (NTG) ratios range from 0.67 to 0.96. Water saturation ranges from 8% to 30%, while hydrocarbon saturation ranges from 70% to 92%. Four gas-bearing units and six oil-bearing units are present in reservoirs P 0.5 and P 1 compartments. All reservoir intervals’ oil and gas volumes are evaluated based on the hydrocarbon distribution. Geological models of the subsurface, such as the one in this paper, are crucial for future reservoir development programs.
