The facies characteristics of Well A in the Field Y were studied using wireline log signatures and data derived from them and cores. The lithostratigraphy, facies types which helped in the interpretation of the depositional environments and their characteristics were read from the wireline logs. The logs were environmentally corrected and normalized. The core data analysis helped in confirming the properties of the various facies types and the effective establishment of the facies boundaries.


Key words: Facies, wireline logs, characteristics, depositional environment.
