Abstract The current study represents evaluation of petrophysical properties for Khasib Formation in four wells of Amara oil field (Am-1, Am-2, Am-5, and Am-6). The petrophysical evaluation was based on well logs and core plug data to delineate the petrophysical characteristics of Khasib Formation. The available well logs such as (sonic, density, neutron, gamma ray, SP, and resistivity logs) are digitized using the Didger software package. The environmental corrections and petrophysical parameters such as porosity, water saturation, hydrocarbon saturation, bulk water volume, etc. were computed and interpreted using Interactive Petrophysics program. Net-to-gross (NTG) values of Khasib reservoir were calculated using core plug data (porosity and permeability). Lithological and mineralogical studies using porosity combination cross plots show that Khasib Formation consists mainly of limestone with shale at the bottom of the formation and the essential mineral components are dominantly calcite. Interpretation of petrophysical characteristics indicate that the Khasib Formation consists of three units: upper Khasib, middle Khasib, and lower Khasib. Middle Khasib represents the principal oil-bearing unit in Khasib Formation.
