Wireline signatures were used to identify hydrocarbon bearing sands and evaluate Petrophysical parameters for hydrocarbon pore volume determination. Well to seismic tie revealed that these reservoirs tied direct hydrocarbon indicators –bright and dim spots –on the seismic sections. Three hydrocarbon reservoir were delineated. Estimation of the volume of hydrocarbon in place revealed that reservoir A contained 1675091.54 ± 102 feet of gas in place, while reservoir B contained 163661.83 barrels ± 80 barrels and reservoir C contained 1739170.41 ± 102 cubic feet of gas.
