Asmari Formation is one of the most prolific and important hydrocarbon reservoirs in Iran. This formation in the Cheshmeh-Khosh oilfield shows mixed carbonate-siliciclastic lithology and its elastic modulus changes are correlatable with facies changes. To address these changes, we investigated the relation between sedimentary environment (facies) and texture with various elastic moduli. The Young's modulus shows higher correlation with the facies changes. Data from three wells are analyzed and used for the construction of rock mechanical facies. Based on elastic properties, facies and texture changes as well as petrophysical characteristics seven rock mechanical facies (RMFs) are recognized in the studied formation. To predict RMFs at inter-well spaces more efficiently and capturing the lateral formation property variationsa 3D rock mechanical facies model is constructed based on seismic attributes. In this method, RMFs are correlatable between the studied wells and mappable by seismic attribute in the field scale. Finally, the distribution of RMFs and their related properties is investigated in the studied field.
