The main purpose of this paper is to estimate and evaluate the petrophysical properties of the Ghar Formation in the Hindijan and Bahregansar oilfields using a combination of seismic and well logs data. In this study, following a step-by-step regression approach: first; sonic, density, and, porosity well-log data are collected. Second; seismic attributes, including amplitude, phase, frequency, and acoustic impedance are extracted from the seismic lines intersecting the wellbore locations. Then, using the MFLN and PNN intelligent systems, a relationship between porosity, shale volume, saturation, and seismic attributes is established. Using this relationship, the physical and petrophysical properties of the reservoir in the Ghar Formation are estimated and evaluated. We estimated the reservoir porosity between 15% and 20%, which is higher in the Hendijan oilfield as compared to the Bahregansar oilfield. The amount of water saturation in the Ghar formation varies between 25 and 30 percent. On the other hand, the amount of clay content and shale volume of the Ghar Formation in the Hendijan field is higher than that of the Bahregansar oil field.
