An application of integration of reservoir production data in analysis for nature of fault is presented in this paper. The real data of a Gas Field (namely RS Gas Field) of L-Basin of Pakistan are used. The basic concept behind this work is to enlighten the importance of production data analysis in a broader way like for finding out the nature of fault i.e. conductive or non-conductive and if it is conductive, what is the leakage factor of the fault etc. Normally in the case of fault analysis we rely on geological and geophysical methods to some extent but in some cases where these geological and geophysical methods are not able to reach any final and firm conclusion because of data limitation or any other reason, production data analysis may play a great role in answering the ambiguities regarding any fault/faults present there. This paper describes the successful implementation of reservoir production data analysis in RS Gas Field where the main uncertainties were identified during initial stage of field development when location of new development well was going to be marked. Numbers and locations of well are important factors of Oil and Gas Filed Developments; but specifically, for Gas Field Development, these factors become more crucial as compared to Oil Field Development; so clear knowledge of any heterogeneity, barrier, boundary or fault is necessary to develop a gas field optimally and economically.
