Developing a certain field with long production history can be challenging, for you need to identify a huge number of the reservoir characteristics accurately. Analyzing the well logs and calculating the petrophysical parameters such as the shale volume and the effective porosity then using the distribution of the wells to create useful maps that can draw the best area for development with the help of well-placed seismic lines, always considered as a good tool. The purpose of our study is to create the best view on East Cameron concession, in order to reveal the development possibilities using the petrophysics and the pressure regime.
