The motivation behind this paper is to enrich and deepen our knowledge in the field of logging and log interpretation. The ultimate target is to have in situ assaying of a particular zone. In petroleum application this means determining the amount of oil and/ or gas that is contained in the formation. The Geological structure of V- NC6 area in AL-HAMADA oil field has been studied and volumetrically estimated in seeks of the amount of hydrocarbons in the structure. To achieve this, a bunch of well logging data from different wells in V-NC6 area have been reviewed, analyzed and interpreted. Physical properties of the reservoir have been measured which include porosity and water saturation by interpretation of SP log and Induction – Electrical logs. In situ porosity has been determined by applying the Archie’s equation on a real data from different resistivity tools. The average porosity of the multi pay zones structure was 14.23 % of the total volume of the reservoir 83336.3 acre ft. The second basic parameter which has been determined for in situ assaying is the saturation of the V- NC6 structure with water and hydrocarbons and they were 30% and 70% respectively. The V- NC6 area in AL-HAMADA oil field volumetrically occupied around 5.44 Million Stock tank barrels of oil.
