The Goru Formation and its Facies in Kirthar Sub-basin

  • Mohammad Iqbal


The Goru formation is described and subdlvlded into 6 facies on the basis of sedimentological study in Kirthar sub-basin. The study shows that reservoir properties of the formation improve in the eastern and southeastern parts of the study area where Fades I-III an! developed i.e. sandstone lithology is dominating. These facies are .’hydrocarbon producers in the southern part, having porosities raning from 20 to 30 percent. The study further indicates some source rock potential in the Facies IV-V in southwestern part of the study area. .
