Abstract

The main purpose of this study is to identify electrofacies and evaluate the petrophysical properties of the Nahr Umr Formation in four wells: A, B, C, and D in the Subba oilfield, southern Iraq. The petrophysical properties, such as shale volume, porosity, water saturation, hydrocarbon saturation, and bulk water volume, were computed and interpreted using Techlog software. According to the interpretation of density, neutron, and gamma ray sonic logs and deep resistivity logs using the IPSOM technique, four electrofacies were identified as sandstone, shaly sand, sandy shale, and shale electrofacies. The formation was divided into three parts based on well log interpretation and petrophysical analysis: the upper part, middle part, and lower part Interpretation of formation lithology and petrophysical parameters shows that the lower part consists mainly sandy shale with layers of sandstone and shale high porosity and high oil saturation whereas middle part consists mainly of sandstone, alternating with thin bedded of sandy shale and shale with high porosity and medium   oil saturation. The upper part consists mainly of a sandy shale alternating with shale and shaly sand with high porosity, hydrocarbon saturation, and lower water saturation.
