Abstract

The Jaria Pika Gas field is a domal anticlinal structure in the northeast of Iraq NW trending, about 3.6 km long and 1.9 km wide. The 55 m thick gas bearing Jeribe Formation is the main reservoir. This study intends to well log interpretation to determine the petrophysical properties of the Jeribe Formation in the Jaria Pika Gas Field. Total porosity, effect porosity, and secondary porosity have been calculated from neutron, density, and sonic logs. Porosity is fair to good in the Jeribe formation. From RHOB-NPHI and N/M cross plot, the Jeribe Formation is composed mainly of dolomite, limestone with nodules of anhydrite. The Fatha Formation contains considerable amounts of anhydrite layers, so it's represented the cap rocks for the Jeribe Reservoir which is recognized based on the reading of Gamma-ray log, Density log, Neutron log, and Sonic log. The Jaria Pika is considered as gas field as the Jeribe reservoir rocks are gas saturated ones.
