Rock physics is a significant tool to describe lithologic characteristics of subsurface rock units. In the present study, seismic lines have been used to depict lithologic characteristics of Khewra Sandstone. Interval velocity was used to calculate elastic parameters. The study revealed that Vp/Vs ratio contour values indicate mixing of shale content increases and overall lithology is not clean sandstone. Bulk density indicates water saturation. Bulk modulus values and shear modulus range below typical sandstones.
