This paper illustrates the importance of classification and identification of rock types within integrated reservoir<br>characterization studies. The goal is not to present a new classification scheme, but to draw attention to the benefits of a<br>classification that provides the basis for populating a geo-cellular model with key attributes (porosity, permeability,<br>saturation). Rock type, as derived from an integration of core examination, routine and special core analysis and wireline<br>logs, and conditioned with well tests, facilitates geologically reasonable property prediction. The study concludes that a<br>single classification scheme is impractical for all aspects of geological modeling. This work stems from a comprehensive<br>reservoir description study of the Jurassic Arab C and D reservoirs of the Dukhan field.
