|Abstract: ||The interpretation of 3D seismic and well logs data from ‘SUYI’ Field reveal that the reservoir sand
is in the parallic sequence of the Agbada Formation and also typical structural features of the Niger
Delta, namely: The roll over anticline and growth fault with a promising good hydrocarbon
accumulation. In this paper, 3D seismic data and well logs data were interpreted and analyse to
delineate potential reservoirs and map structures favourable to hydrocarbon accumulation, this will
aid further exploration activities within the field of study. Two reservoir sands were delineated from
the well logs using gamma ray logs for the lithology identification and resistivity logs for the fluid
content identification. Seven faults (F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, and F7) were delineated while three
horizons (Horizon 1, 2 and 3) were picked across the seismic section. Most of the major faults
delineated in the area trends east-west, cutting across the low structure area. The generated time
and depth structure maps shows the area is characterized by low structural features but some high
anticlinal structures were observed at different flanks on the maps generated, these areas are likely
to be good prospect for the accumulation of hydrocarbon.|
