Abstract

The Jeribe Formation, the Jambour oil field, is the major carbonate reservoir from the tertiary reservoirs of the Jambour field in northern Iraq, including faults. Engineers have difficulty organizing carbonate reserves since they are commonly tight and heterogeneous. This research presents a geological model of the Jeribe reservoir based on its facies and reservoir characterization data (Permeability, Porosity, Water Saturation, and Net to Gross). This research studied four wells. The geological model was constructed with the Petrel 2020.3 software. The structural maps were developed using a structural contour map of the top of the Jeribe Formation. A pillar grid model with horizons and layering was designed for each zone. Following the porosity model, the average porosity was roughly 11%. According to the permeability model, the reservoir has average permeability of  150 md while average net to gross, water saturation and thickness were  54%, 61%, and 75.5m, respectively. Depending on the average values of each unit separately zones two and three had good petrophysical characteristics, with about 85% of the Jeribe reservoir containing hydrocarbons.
