HYDROCARBON POTENTIALITY OF FACHA RESERVOIR IN ASWAD OIL FIELD, SIRT BASIN, LIBYA
This paper is to study the structural framework, stratigraphy, and the petro-physical characteristics of Facha reservoir of Gir Formation in Aswad oil field, which is located in Block NC74B at the Zella Trough, south-west of Sirt basin, Libya. The data used have been got from well-logging records of nine exploratory wells distributed in Aswad oil field. These data have been analyzed and interpreted through using analytical cross-plots in order to calculate the petro-physical parameters. The results revealed that the lithological facies consists mainly of dolomite. Moreover, they revealed that the lateral distribution of the petro-physical parameters of Facha reservoir indicates that average porosity is 10-23%, average water saturation is 52- 93%, and net pay is of 62.44 ft. This shows that Facha member is a good reservoir rock. The variations in values between wells have been affected by the trend of faults; this indicates that the area is structurally controlled.
