Seismic reservoir characterization of the Najmah Formation, Raudhatain field, north Kuwait
The Late Jurassic Najmah Formation of Northeast Kuwait consists of a fractured tight carbonate reservoir and organic-rich kerogen layer. The average reservoir unit thickness is about 50 ft at a depth of 14000 ft. It has low porosity and ultra-low permeability. Development of the Najmah reservoir is contingent on recognizing naturally fractured areas. The reservoir section is immediately below thick layers of alternating salts and anhydrite, and the seismic data within the reservoir interval suffers from destructive interference of coherent noise. Coherent noise interference impacts the reliability ...
