Estimation of reservoir rock and fluid properties is highly dependent on the parameters used in the rock physics models. Determining water saturation is very important to estimate hydrocarbon reserves and is often computed using Archie’s equation. Any uncertainty associated with the parameters in the Archie model as well as resistivity of clay in shaly sand formations may cause errors in the estimation of petrophysical parameters. It is very important to evaluate the relative impact of these parameters on reservoir rock and fluid properties. In this work, a series of sensitivity tests were carried out in order to investigate which of the formation water resistivity
