 en Lithology and Fluid discrimination of Sody field of the Nigerian Delta


The lithology and fluid discrimination of an onshore Sody field, of the Niger Delta was studied using gamma ray, resistivity and density logs from three wells in the field in order to evaluate the field’s reservoir properties. Two reservoir sands (RES 1 and RES 2) were delineated and identified as hydrocarbon bearing reservoirs. The petrophysical parameters calculated include total porosity, water saturation and volume of shale. The results obtained revealed that the average porosity of the reservoir sands, range from 21% to 39%, which is excellent indicator of a good quality reservoir and probably reflecting well sorted coarse grain sandstone reservoirs with minimal cementation. Water saturation is low in all the reservoirs, ranging from 2% to 32%, indicating that the proportion of void spaces occupied by water is low, and implying high hydrocarbon saturation. The crossplot discriminated the reservoirs lithologies as sand, shaly sand and shale sequences, except well Sody 2 which differentiated its lithologies as sand and shale sequences and distinguished the reservoirs’ litho-fluids into three, namely; gas, oil and brine. These results suggest that the reservoirs sand units of Sody field contain significant accumulations of hydrocarbon.
