The hydrocarbon potential of Amu field in the Niger Delta has been evaluated from seismic and well log data. Two major lithologies and reservoirs were delineated from the well logs. The lithologies are sand and shale while the two reservoirs are designated L and F, and were interpreted from seismic to be anticlinal structures. Seven faults and two horizons were delineated and mapped from the seismic sections. The faults are mainly synthetic and antithetic. The seismic-to-well tie shows a very good match. The average porosity and permeability of reservoir L are 21.55% and 1426 mD respectively. Similarly, the computed average porosity and permeability of reservoir F are 18.4% and 1085 mD. The estimated initial hydrocarbon in place for reservoirs L and F are 65.19 mmstb and 65.41 mmstb. The results of the research show that the Amu field has a good hydrocarbon potential.
