SOURCE ROCK EVALUATION OF SOME INTERVALS IN THE GULF OF SUEZ AREA, EGYPT (2006)
In order to identify and evaluate the source rocks combination between resistivity, sonic, density and level of organic metamorphism (LOM) from three wells distributed in the central and southern part of the Gulf of Suez-Egypt is performed. Two analytical steps were carried out. The first one is represented by identification of source/non-source intervals using the method described by Meyer and Nederlof (1984) for calculation of discriminant score function (D). The second step is represented by calculation of TOC% using two methods, the first, which based on using the density information and the second was described through the ΔlogR and the overlay between the resistivity curve from one hand and sonic, density from the other. Data from three wells were collected and analyzed using the above-mentioned techniques. The results revealed that the central onshore part is richer in total organic carbon (TOC%) when compared with the other two localities, where it is classified as good source rock.
