 en Petrophysical Evaluation of Reservoir Sand Bodies in Kwe Field Onshore Eastern Niger Delta
ASUBIOJO, T.M. & OKUNUWADJE, S.E.

Abstract

Reservoir sand bodies in Kwe Field, coastal swamp depobelt, onshore eastern Niger Delta Basin were evaluated from a composite log suite comprising gamma ray, resistivity, density and neutron logs of five (5) wells with core photographs of one (1) reservoir of one well. The aim of the study was to evaluate the petrophysical properties of the reservoirs while the objectives were to identify the depositional environment and predict the reservoir system quality and performance. The study identified three reservoir sand bodies in the field on the basis of their petrophysical properties and architecture. Reservoir A has an average NTG (61.4 %), Ø (27.50 %), K (203.99 md), Sw (31.9 %) and Sh (68.1 %); Reservoir B has an average NTG (65.6 %), Ø (26.0 %), K (95.90 md), Sw (28.87 %) and Sh (71.13 %) while Reservoir C has an average NTG (70.4 %), Ø (26.1 %), K (91.4 md), Sw (25.0 %) and Sh (75.03 %) and therefore show that the field has good quality sandstone reservoirs saturated in hydrocarbon. However, the presence of marine shales (or mudstones) interbedding with these sandstones may likely form permeability baffles to vertical flow and compartmentalize the reservoirs. These reservoirs may therefore have different flow units. Integrating wireline logs and core data, the reservoir sand bodies were interpreted as deposited in an estuarineshoreface setting thus indicating that the Kwe Field lies within the marginal marine mega depositional environment.
