Abstract The magnetic susceptibility signal is one of the important properties on minerals that can be used to identify these minerals and distinguish them from each other as different minerals have different magnetic susceptibility readings and response. Minerals according to their magnetic response are classified to three main categories Diamagnetic Paramagnetic and Ferrimagnetic which are commonly present in the hydrocarbon reservoir and some of them are considered to be important controlling factors for some of the reservoirs properties related closely to the capability of these reservoirs to contain hydrocarbons flow in the porous media and then its production to the production wells. Examples of these properties are permeability and microporosity which showed very good correlation with the magnetic susceptibility measurements particularly those that have been taken at high applied magnetic field.
