Manifestation of Low Resistivity Pay (LRP) Existences in ONWJ Area because of Fine Grained, Superficial Microporosity, Laminated Shaly Sand and Electronic Conduction. Water saturation petrophysical analysis for LRP Case due to those reason above can be solved by electrical parameter determination with Type Curve. But to overcome the LRP caused by Laminated Shaly Sand, the use of high resolution resistivity logs that are close to the resolution of thin bed reservoir is a must. Alternative solutions, conventional high resolution resistivity logs, namely Micro Spherical Focused Log (MSFL) are used to interpret thin bed reservoirs that have the hydrocarbon potential. This intergrated petrophysical analysis is called MAINE Petrophysical Method

The Petrophysical MAINE method is the development of the TECWAL (Type Curve, Core and Water Analysis) method which leaves question marks on Laminated Shaly Sand Reservoir and the possibility of variations in the Electrical Parameter and Water Saturation Irreducible (SWIRR) dependent on Rocktype. The Basis of the MAINE Method is the Worthington Type Curve with some assumptions such as Each rocktype has a different value of Bulk Volume of Water (BVW) and BVW can be used to determine the SWIRR value of each rocktype and Each rocktype has different electrical parameter m and n. In the process, the use of J-Function and Buckles Plot is applied to help determinet Rocktype and BVW values. The rocktype will be the media in distributing the value of Electrical Parameter generated by the Type Curve and the value will be used in water saturation calculation. In Laminated Shaly Sand Reservoir, Rocktyping will be analyzed more detail using the High Resolution Conventional Log, Micro Spherical Focused Log (MSFL). The expected final result of this analysis is the more reliable Water Saturation (SW) and the integration of water saturation values in the Buckles Plot which can help in determining the transition zone in order to avoid mistakes in determining the perforation zone.

Through the MAINE Petrophysical Method, there is a decrease in water saturation from an average value 86% to 66% or a decrease 23%. This result is quite significant for the calculation of reserves in the LRP zone. By integrating this method with the Buckles Plot, it can help the interpreter to determine the perforation interval in order to avoid water contact or the transition zone
