    The Analysis of hydrostatic pressure of Fabi Field onshore Niger delta was carried out to understand the subsurface depth pressure variations in the field. The well logs were analyzed to identify hydrostatic pressure zones through points of deviation from the compaction trends of the sediments and attribute crossplots while seismic inversion was carried out on the seismic data to obtain the lateral hydrostatic pressure variations in Fabi Field. The well logs exhibited normal compaction trends from depth level of 7200 ft to 8625 ft. At depth level of 8625 ft to 9000 ft, the velocity, density and resistivity logs deviated from the normal compaction trends. This point of deviations from the compaction trends of the sediments were identified as overpressure zones. Through crossplots of velocity and density logs, two overpressure generating mechanism of the Fabi Field such as under compact.. View More»
