Petrophysical Properties of Mauddud Formation in Selected Wells in Al- Ahdab Oil Field, Middle Iraq


This paper aims to calculate the petrophysical properties in the Al-Ahdab fieldin the middle of Iraq within the Mauddud Formation. This study was based on theinformation available from well logs. The interactive petrophysical software IP(V4.5) was used to calculate the porosity, hydrocarbon saturation and shale volume,divide the formation into reservoir units and buffer units, and evaluate these units ineach well. The Mauddud was divided into five units, two of them were consideredgood reservoirs having good petrophysical properties (high porosity, Low watersaturation, and low shale volume). The other three are not reservoirs because of poorpetrophysical properties.
