English Abstract

The Khobar Aquifer is considered one of the important aquifers in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. This research is devoted to study the lithology and petrophysical properties of the aquifer. Lithology was studied by analyzing rock samples using X-Ray Diffraction and thin section studies. A laboratory program was also executed to determine the electrical properties, the acoustic properties, porosity and permeability of the Al-Khobar aquifer rocks. Furthermore, seismic refraction and electrical sounding surveys were conducted in the field. As a result of these studies, general relationships between ultrasonic wave velocity, resistivity, lithology, and porosity have been established.
