Abstract
Tight reservoir exploration in Barmer basin has huge potential with possible in place volumes of multi billion barrels in reservoirs across the Mesozoic to Cenozoic stratigraphic levels. These tight reservoirs (permeability in the range of 0.01–10 mD) are ideal fraccing candidates for commercial production. One of the critical challenges in tight reservoir exploration is early assessment of permeability and reservoir fluid type identification through wireline formation testing (WFT) to determine flow behavior, frac optimization and expected deliverability after fraccing. The most prospective Barmer Hill (BH) and Fatehgarh (FAT) tight formations from the basin ha...
