Knowledge of gas analysis from the extracted drilling formation represents the earliest data while drilling and is performed by mud logging contractors which represent an important stage into the formation evaluation by the wellsite geologists and represent an important stage for the production team especially in exploratory drilling operations. In this paper, we will study Gas Ratio Analysis which can play a role to identify the fluid types and decide which layers have hydrocarbons by using simple ratios of light gases measured by gas chromatograph inside the mud logging unit where it can be calculated in real-time and plotted, both on mud logs together with depth-based data. In this study we selected three wells in belayim land field to application of gas ratio analysis, It was shown that hydrocarbon distributions inside the formation where we can select the best places for perforation and production.
