Although Habiganj Gas Field is one of the best gas field with good reservoir characteristics but it is least analyzed. This paper presents the critical view on four wells (HBJ -7, HBJ-8, HBJ-9, and HBJ-10) of upper gas sand using wire line log data for further development. It is found from the analyses data that a thick zone (~40 m, depth between 1410 to 1450 m) of Bokabil Formation in well no. 8 HBJ-8 shows greater porosity (>43%) and permeability (5-16 D) which may be the indicators of a big fracture zone within the reservoir that yet to be noticed. The similar phenomenon also observed in HBJ-9 with laser thickness. The consistency in porosity and permeability of different wells shows that the reservoir of Habiganj Gas Field is well-sorted. However the stratigraphical model shows that the structure of Habiganj Gas field is almost symmetrical and trending SSE, which supports the structure of Surma Basin. The multi-log 3-D model shows both lithology and stratigraphy, which also resemblance with the lithology and stratigraphy of the Surma Basin.
