This study aims to set up a 3D static model to characterize and evaluate Mishrif Formation which represents the main reservoir in Buzurgan Oilfield, southern Iraq. Six wells have been selected to set up structural, facies and petrophysical models of Mishrif reservoir by using Petrel Software. The structural model has been built based on the structural contour map of the top of Mishrif Formation, which derived from seismic interpretation, and by using different static algorithms in Petrel

The petrophysical model included the porosity model and water saturation model. The results of petrophysical models showed lateral and vertical variations in the porosity and water saturation characteristics of the Mishrif reservoir. The integration between the structural and petrophysical models illustrated that the main productive zones in Mishrif reservoir are MB21, MC1 and MC2 units.
