    Al Baraka concession area need more and more geological and geophysical studies for the producing reservoirs (Six Hills “F” and Abu Ballas Fm.). The sedimentary regime for these reservoirs is very complex. The petroleum system need to be well understood, because I think we had more than one system. I have already shared in supervision on the drilling AlBaraka-3 well, while I was occupying the position Sr.Reservoir geologist at Dana gas in 2009 and had published a scientific paper about the petrophysical parameters of Six Hills”F” and Abu Ballas reservoirs.
