Abstract

In upper Indus basin Potwar plateau is a successful exploration area for hydrocarbon. The study area is consisting of Fimkassar oil field and research data is obtained from Land Mark Resources with the special permission of Director General of Petroleum Concession Ministry of petroleum and natural resources Islamabad. The study area consists of well#1 and #2 and seismic lines 97-CP-07, 782-CW-23, 782-CW-25, 884-FMK-101, 884-FMK-102, of the Fimkassar oil field. The 2D seismic study is very essential for interpretation of the subsurface structure clarity in the study area and occurrence of hydrocarbon in deeper horizon of sedimentary basin. The interpretation will be carried out to confirm the reservoir characteristic of the Chorgali Formation to delineate promising location for test drilling into Chorgali Formation. The methodology adopted to achieve the reserves estimation includes the measurements for the shale volume by using Gamma Ray Log, Porosity by density and Neutron Log, Resistivity of water by using SP method, Saturation of water in the zone of reservoir and Hydrocarbon saturation using Archie equation. Time structure maps of the reflectors will be produced using two-way time of the reflectors. Time structure map is converted into depth contour map and get area for reserve estimation. Applying the volumetric method to calculate reserve in Fimkassar area.
