Petrophysical Parameters and Reservoir Evaluation from Well Log Analysis of Lam Member (Late Jurassic), Habban Oil Field, Marib-Shabwah (Sab'atayn) Basin, Yemen

The present work aims to quantify the petrophysical parameters including shale content, effective porosity, and fluid saturations of the Late Jurassic Lam Member in the Habban oil field, Marib Shabwah Basin, Yemen, and also, to define the distribution and lateral connectivity of reservoir rocks which are frequently marked by severe lithological variation.  The open-hole well log data from selected 5 wells, namely Habban 1A, Habban 8, Habban 11, Habban 14, and Habban 25 are used through computer software. The results revealed that the Lam Member rocks consist of an interbedded sequence of carbonate (limestone and dolomite) and claystone with intercalated sandstone. They are encountered in the study area with a relatively high thickness reaching up to 498 m. These rocks have reasonable effective porosity (12.2%), low shale content (14.9%), and high hydrocarbon saturation (70%) with maximum pay thicknesses reaching 40 m; accordingly, they are promising for future hydrocarbon exploration.

Geological and Petrographical Investigation of the Neoproterozoic Basement Rocks of Wadi Arak-Wadi El Qash area, Central Eastern Desert, Egypt

The present paper focuses primarily on the geology and petrography of the Neoproterozoic basement rocks encountered in the Wadi Arak-Wadi El Qash area which is located in the extreme western side of the Central Eastern Desert of Egypt. The Wadi Arak-Wadi El Qash area is occupied and dominated by the Hammamat molasses-type sediments which overlie unconformably upon a basement of ophiolitic, arc assemblages and Dokhan volcanic, and is intruded by felsites and late to post-tectonic granites. Geological and petrographical examination revealed that the ophiolitic rocks form a NW-SE elongate belt of imbricate thrust sheets and slices of ultrabasic and basic association including serpentinites and Muweilih metabasalts together with sheared amphibolites and actinolite chlorite schist. The Arc assemblages comprise arc metavolcanic and Muweilih metaconglomerates. The island arc metavolcanic are commonly basic to intermediate with subordinate felsic composition and comprise metabasalts, metadolerite, metabasaltic andesite, metaandesite and metadacites together with their associated metaconglomerate rocks. The Muweilih metaconglomerates are intensely deformed, and their clasts were derived from pre-Dokhan volcanic rocks. The Dokhan volcanic are unmetamorphosed and embrace an association of basic to acidic lava flows together with their corresponding bedded pyroclastics. The Hammamat molasses sediments are dominated by red Igla Formation with subordinate green Shihimiya Formation. They are unmetamorphosed and classified into oligomictic and polymictic conglomerates, lithic arenites, feldspathic …

Microstructural and strain studies of neoproterozoic rocks encapsulating hammamat molasse deposits in theWadi El-Qash area, Central Eastern Desert, Egypt

Understanding deformational processes and related structures at various scales, necessitates an estimate of microstructural and finite strain characterization of deformed rocks. In the current research, 23 collected samples of metaconglomerates, metsediments, and metavolcanics from the Wadi El-Qash region, placed in the Central Eastern Desert of Egypt, were used to quantify the finite strain of quartz, feldspar porphyroclasts, and mafic grains. Finite strain techniques were utilized to produce and analyze 46 thin sections. The metaconglomerate rocks have undergone high to moderate grades of deformation, according to the strain results. Using the Rf/φ and the Fry techniques, the axial ratios in the XZ section vary from 2.20 to 5.40 and from 2.00 to 5.30, respectively. The strain results point out high to moderate rates of deformation of the metaconglomerates, metsediments, and metavolcanic rocks. The direction of …

Subsurface Structure Detection Using Geomagnetic Data Approach in Wadi Araba area, Gulf of Suez, Egypt

One of the most attractive locations for oil and natural gas extraction is the Wadi Araba region in the Gulf of Suez, Egypt. The main objective of the present investigation is the analysis and interpretation of the available aeromagnetic data utilizing various modern processing techniques to map the subsurface structural framework and estimate the depth of these structures in the Wadi Araba. The total magnetic intensity (TMI) anomaly map of the study area was reduced to the north magnetic pole (RTP). This map was separated into regional and residual maps, then, they were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively by Geosoft Oasis Montaj Software. Results of trend analysis indicated that there are four major trends in the study area, NW-SE (Suez Rift), NE-SE (Syrian Arc), E-W (Tethyan), and N-S (East African) arranged in decreasing order of their frequency magnitude where the trends of Suez and the Syrian are the most common. The deduced orientations are agreeable and presented in the surface structures. The presence of such two major trends (NW-SE) and (NE-SW) increases the potential of the study area to contain petroleum traps. This study deduced that the depth to the basement complex varies from 0.5 to 3 Km with an average of 1.8 Km, as indicated by the result of 2D power spectrum and 3D Euler deconvolution. The trend analysis indicates that the area is dissected by a group of structural fault trends that may be implemented as structural traps for petroleum accumulation in this region which needs more seismic studies to explore their types and geometry.

Geophysical Prospecting of the Coptic Monastery of Apa Moses Using GPR and Magnetic Techniques: A Case Study, Abydos, Sohag, Egypt

As a result of new discoveries, there is a greater opportunity for development and investment in the Al-Arraba EL-Madfuna region of Abydos, Sohag Governorate, Egypt, which benefits tourism and increases the national economy. The Coptic monastery, which was originally established by Apa Moses, the patriarch of the Coptic Church during the ancient Roman Empire, has vanished inside the current market on this site, along with numerous tombs. As a result, the primary goal of this work is to prospect on this site for these potential archaeological features. Ground magnetic and ground-penetration radar (GPR) surveys were employed for discovering these archaeological issues. This work was done in coordination with the Supreme Council of Antiquities. Ground magnetic and GPR surveys were implemented using the G-857 proton-precession magnetometer and GSSI SIR 4000 with a 200 MHz antenna. The data were processed and interpreted using Geosoft Oasis Montaj and REFLEXW v.5.8 software packages. The magnetic data were filtered to separate the shallower anomalies representing the archaeological remains from those of the deeper ones. Butterworth high pass filter, first vertical derivatives, analytical signal, and tilt derivative were employed to carry out the processing stages. The results were analyzed qualitatively and quantitatively to describe these anomalies and determine their locations, geometrical shapes, and depths. The source parameter imaging technique and 3D Euler deconvolution were used to calculate the depths. The analysis of magnetic maps shows that the study site is characterized by a number of anomalies that …

Simulation of Biophysicochemical Characteristics of the Soils Using Geoelectrical Measurements near the Sewage Station, Assiut City, Egypt

Numerous farmers regularly irrigate their farms with inadequately treated sewage water pumped from the sewage system in the Arab El-Madabegh district of Assiut City, Egypt. According to previous studies, long-term irrigation with partially treated sewage water resulted in significant changes in the physicochemical properties of soil. The principal goals of this study are (1) to infer empirical equations between geoelectrical resistivity measurements and certain biophysicochemical parameters of some soil samples, and (2) to use these empirical equations to calculate the biophysicochemical parameters of the unknown samples for the same location. For this purpose, 27 soil samples at different depth levels (0 to 25, 25 to 60, and 60 to 90 cm) were collected from eleven locations at the sewage station. Physical properties including water content and particle size distribution, chemical properties including soil pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and the heavy metals concentrations, biological properties including total coliform counts, and geoelectrical resistivity measurements were estimated and analyzed for these samples. Electrical resistivity measurements and biophysicochemical properties were cross-correlated using the exponential trend line to fit the cross-correlated data, and the empirical relationships were obtained. These empirical relationships in conjunction with the measured electrical resistivity measurements were used to calculate the biophysicochemical values of the other three random soil samples. The biophysicochemical values of the former three samples were measured by the same normal procedures as 27 samples. Then, the …

Evaluation of Engineering Site and Subsurface Structures Using Seismic Refraction Tomography: A Case Study of Abydos Site, Sohag Governorate, Egypt

Because of the strategic importance of the Abydos archaeological site in Egypt as a source of wealth for Egyptian tourism, this study was concerned with carrying out geophysical measurements to detect subsurface succession and measure variations in the geotechnical engineering features of the soils/rocks in order to protect this significant area. The findings will assist geologists and seismologists in collaborating with archaeologists for future site development, revitalization, and investment. The primary objectives of this work were to determine the subsurface lithology, evaluate the engineering geotechnical properties of soils/rocks, identify the layer thicknesses, and identify the site class by calculating Vs30. To achieve these goals, seventeen (17) seismic refraction tomography (SRT) P- and S-wave measurements were executed in front of the Osirion location. SeisImager Software was used for the processing and interpretation of the outcomes. The results were the travel time–distance curves, which were used for building the 2D seismic models that exhibited the velocity and the depth of the layered models. These models were validated by our previous works using electric resistivity tomography and borehole data. The results indicated that this site consisted of three geoseismic subsurface layers. The first layer was the surface that was made up of wadi deposits, which were a mixture of gravel, sand, and silt and were characterized by incompetent to slightly competent materials. The second layer corresponded to the sand and muddy sand deposits of competent rock that was of fair to moderate quality. The third layer (clay deposits) had a higher …

Utilizing Magnetic Gradiometer to Determine the Depth and Geometry of Subsurface Archaeological Features at Abydos Archaeological Site, Sohag, Egypt

The Abydos archaeological site represents one of the most important burial grounds for kings and high court dignitaries in ancient Egypt which is located at about 13 km west of the River Nile along El-Balyana town at Sohag Governorate, Egypt. High resolution gradiometer survey was conducted on the area surrounding the Osirion at Abydos. The main objective of the present work was to detect depth and geometry of any buried archaeological remains located at the site. The gradiometer survey was acquired on an area of 300 x 300 m using proton precession magnetometer, 10m line spacing and 5m station interval. The collected gradiometer magnetic data was corrected and processed using the Geosoft Oasis Montaj. The interpretation of both the high pass filtered and the analytical signal transformation magnetic maps showed very strong anomalies with square and rectangular shapes concentrated on the central, eastern and western parts of the study area that may represent buried archaeological features. The averaged depth of these high magnetic anomalies ranges from 1.1 to 6.9 m below ground surface as confirmed from the radial average spectrum technique and the calculated depth by source power imaging technique ranges between 1.06 m to 5.58 m. The obtained results indicate that the study area is characterized by several buried archaeological features with very well determined geometry and depth where this information can be used as a guide during the excavation process..

Archaeological prospecting on the site of Osirion-Abydos using High Resolution Ground Penetrating Radar Technique, Sohag District, Egypt

Abydos Temple is one of Egypt's most significant sites, with a rich history that stretches from the ancient kingdom until the arrival of Islam. It has been built for about 4000 years. The main goal of this study is to use advanced geophysical techniques, such as ground penetrating radar (GPR), in conjunction with SIR 4000 control units and 200 MHz center frequency antennas, to search for more undiscovered remains of archaeological objects such as ancient walls, tombs, monuments, and so on, in the study area. The study's final findings revealed that there are numerous hyperbolic anomalies beneath the ground surface at a depth of roughly 2 meters, indicating the presence of probable ancient remains that must be excavated for confirmation. Many abnormalities that could represent important ancient tombs or walls were found on the radarogram, according to a thorough examination of the results. The existence of walls in the processed pictures at depths ranging from 2 to 4 meters indicates the presence of ancient communities as well as some buried archaeological objects.

Site effect estimation using H/V microtremor and shallow seismic prospecting, Elkawamel, Sohag, Egypt

Shallow seismic refraction survey and Microtremor measurements together were conducted and found out to be an effective approach to study the site effect and also to establish a seismic hazard microzonation overview. The amplification and fundamental resonance frequency and of ground motion at different frequencies were estimated using the microtremor data measured at ten sites in the new industrial zone around the urban areas in Sohag Governorate, Egypt. Also, site effects were calculated applying a numerical technique using shear wave velocities observed from measured profiles at the study area utilizing 24-channel shallow seismic refraction seismograph.The results show variations in the fundamental resonance frequency values from one site to another depending on its distance from the Eocene plateau scarp that located at the southern and southwestern sides of the study area, where it becomes higher close to the plateau foot. In case of the low frequency, the amplification of the ground motion shows variation from site to the other site depending on its vicinity to the plateau, while in case of high frequency the variation depends on the thickness of the sediment layers. The results using the microtremor technique emphasize that given by the shallow seismic refraction method.

Geomagnetic characterization of a basaltic intrusion and its tectonic implications, Eastern Desert, Egypt

The purpose of this study is to define the geographic area of an estimated depth to an Eastern desert intrusion near wadi Qena. The study also clarified the many stages of deformations connected to this intrusion. Aeromagnetic data was employed using the goal of this investigation for this purpose. Along with the underlying structure, these intrusions' depths and magnetic susceptibilities were evaluated. To get RTP magnetic data with anomalies concentrated on the subsurface causal bodies, the magnetic data was reduced to the North Pole. Various filtering methods were used. The power spectrum approach was used to determine the distance to the causative bodies. The maps reveal significant magnetic anomalies caused by basaltic intrusion inside sedimentary strata with a general NNW-SSE trend and very probable multi-phase intrusion activity. Calcite crystals were seen in a few of the measured joints. Various techniques are used to determine the major depth to the causative bodies.

An Integrated Geophysics and Isotope Geochemistry to Unveil the Groundwater Paleochannel in Abydos Historical Site, Egypt

The scientific controversy among archaeologists about the existence of paleochannels under the Abydos archaeological site, Sohag, Egypt connecting the Osirion (cenotaph of Seti I) with the Nile River has been explained in this study. This study is an attempt to address this issue using integrating a near-surface geophysical approach with stable isotopic geochemistry on this site. Particularly, the stable oxygen and hydrogen isotopes on the water samples collected from the surface and the groundwater in the study area were analyzed and interpreted. The isotopes result showed that the Osirion water is a mixture of three different types of water: Old Nile Water (ONW) before the construction of the High Dam, Recent Nile Water (RNW) after the construction of the High Dam, and Paleowater (PW) from deeper aquifers. Field observations of the Osirion and nearby water cannot explain the presence and direction of this water. Therefore, the next step in this study is determining the location and the direction of the paleochannel connecting the Osirion with the Nile River which was proven using the electric resistivity tomography (ERT) technique. By using the results of the isotope of all types of water near the Osirion and its surrounding wells and the water of the Nile River, in addition to the near-surface geophysical measurements, the results indicated that the 3D view of the ERT data revealed a prospective paleochannel in the direction of the northeast and its location, where this channel is in charge of providing groundwater from the Nile River to the Osirion location.

Detection of groundwater pathways to monitor their level rise in Osirion at Abydos archaeological site for reducing deterioration hazards, Sohag, Egypt using electrical …

Climatic changes because of groundwater levels rising near the archaeological sites became a fundamental issue in Egypt. The problem will affect the deterioration of the stone foundations of the temples and any archaeological features, which will affect their deformation, changing their features, and their archaeological and architectural importance. Osirion in Abydos archaeological place, west of Sohag Governorate, undergoes this problem where the level of ground water increases west of this site in the spring season. Solving this problem will help to preserve the antiques at the Abydos site and, in particular, the Osirion and its surrounding area. It is important to understand the hydrostratigraphic conditions of the Abydos site and its surroundings. The main objectives of the work are: (1) characterizing the subsurface succession and lithology; (2) identifying the sources responsible for the groundwater level rising near the Osirion, and groundwater assessment distribution and water table depth; and (3) evaluating the subsurface location and geometry of any paleochannels that may represent conduits for groundwater flow pathways to join the water to the studied site. All this information will aid the officials to decide and make future solutions to solve these problems. To achieve these goals, the authors implemented an advanced geophysical technique, namely electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) investigations in conjunction with the existing boreholes data. The main outcomes of this work are 2D and 3D representations of the resistivity distributions, which reflect a full picture about the subsurface engineering layers, including details of the …

Geoarchaeological Investigation of Abydos Area Using Land Magnetic and GPR Techniques, El-Balyana, Sohag, Egypt

Abydos Temple is one of Egypt’s most significant sites which has a long history that dates back to the ancient monarchy and continued until the coming of Islam and also served as one of Egypt’s most significant ancient royal and high-ranking official burial sites. The main objective of this work was discovering more archaeological features buried underground such as ancient walls, monuments, and tombs. This objective was achieved using two near surface sophisticated geophysical techniques, namely ground magnetic survey and ground penetrating radar (GPR). This site was surveyed firstly using ground magnetic survey as reconnaissance stage and the locations which contain potential anomalies were resurveyed using GPR technique for determination the depth and the geometry of this potential targets. This site was divided into four regular grids and GPR model SIR-4000 equipment with 200 MHz central frequency antenna was used in this survey. The output of the magnetic survey is a total magnetic anomaly map which was filtered using High pass (HP) and first vertical derivative (VFD) techniques to extract the residual component of the shallow objects which may be archaeological targets. The results of the magnetic methods showed a group of anomalies which appeared on the residual map and were attributed to archaeological features by comparing them with the current excavated objects in and around the site. Their geometrical shapes and depths were estimated using source parameter imaging (SPI) and analytical signal (AS) techniques in Geosoft Oasis Montag Software. The estimated depth of these objects is between 1–3 m …

Petrophysical characterization, microfacies analysis, and diagenetic attributes of the Lower Jurassic surface analog sequence in Gebel El-Maghara area, north Sinai, Egypt

This study concerns with the petrophysical characteristics of the Lower Jurassic surface analog in Gebel El-Maghara area (from base to top Mashaba, Rajabia, and Shusha formations), north Sinai, Egypt and implementation of the mineral components and diagenetic controls on reservoir characteristics. A full set of petrophysical measurements including porosity (∅ He), permeability (k), grain and bulk densities (σ g and σ b, respectively), and true formation resistivity factor was applied. The Lower Jurassic sequence is subdivided into five hydraulic flow units (HFUs) that consist of three reservoir rock types (RRTs). These RRTs are composed of three microfacies association (MFAs). The RRT1 plug samples consist of the mostly clastic MFA1; they are porous, permeable, and have good reservoir quality that is using the flow zone indicator (FZI), and the reservoir quality index (RQI). The lowest reservoir quality is assigned to the RRT samples which are mostly composed tight carbonates.

Engineering geotechnical evaluation of soil for foundation purposes using shallow seismic refraction and MASW in 15th Mayo, Egypt

Despite the modernity of the 15th Mayo city, buildings suffer progressively from engineering problems which are increased over the last 10 years like cracks, fissures, cavities and tilting of building. The main target of this work is to delineate the dynamic engineering characteristics of subsurface rocks and soils through interpretation of P- and S-wave velocities, knowledge of probable causes of structural construction damages and calculate Vs30 for determining site class. Therefore, field work of shallow seismic refraction (SSR) and multichannel analysis of surface waves (MASW) were undertaken in this work to evaluate causes of these effects. Nineteen profiles for both SSR and one dimension (1D) MASW were performed to assess the geotechnical characteristics of subsurface soil for building purposes and calculating Vs30 for site class evaluation.SSR survey was implemented using a seismograph of 48-channel …

Use of the geophysical approaches for studying the environmental impact assessment of the human burying techniques to the soil and groundwater: A case study of Geheina …

Electrical resistivity and self-potential are effective geophysical tools for monitoring the soil and groundwater pollution because they are accurate, rapid, costless and non-distractive techniques. Direct or indirect burying of the corpses into the soil is one of the main factors which pollute the soil and the groundwater after decomposition of the tissues and bones. Therefore, the main objective of this study are using these tools to evaluate the rate of soil and groundwater pollution due to burying the corpses in chipboard coffins at depths approximately 0.70–1.30 m (Christians burial method) and directly into the soil at depths about 1.5–1.8 m (Muslims burial method). Beside, assessing the contamination depths and flow paths of the groundwater investigated area. The study area was carefully chosen because of: 1- it contains two different burial methods, 2- presence of shallow groundwater aquifer, 3- the surface layer …

Investigative petrophysical fingerprint technique using conventional and synthetic logs in siliciclastic reservoirs: A case study, Gulf of Suez basin, Egypt

Typically pressure gradients and density-neutron crossover are used to differentiate between reservoir water, oil and gas. This study investigates fluid type in the Badri Field, Sidri sandstone reservoir of four offshore wells, A, B, C and D. These wells lack pressure or well test data and density-neutron fluid interpretation remain equivocal. In addition, these wells have not been tested before. Hence, a new technique adopted from the geochemical fingerprint technique termed petrophysical fingerprint has been used to distinguish equivocal petrophysical characteristics. In this study, the petrophysical fingerprint was used to distinguish fluids, a combination of synthetic and raw logs was plotted on crossplots charts and correlated to previous oil and gas well tests. This study revealed that, 1) the Petrophysical Fingerprint technique was found to clarify otherwise ambivalent log responses, lending confidence to the Badri …
