Tarim Tight Sandstone Reservoir has the complex pore texture and gas-water relation with the tight matrix and
developed fractures. Evaluation results are not as good as expected using the classical Archie equation, which
indicate low coincidence rate for the water or gas layer recognition at the reservoir bottom especially. In this paper,
we analysis the key control factors of reservoir fluid and gas-water distribution, calculate the gas saturation of single
well in divided three reservoir categories based on the microscopic formation dynamics theory, and model the gas
saturation field of Tarim sandstone reservoir. Calculated gas saturation results coincide to the ones in the tested
zone and gas recognition results, which could interpret some water zones at high parts in some wells. Irreducible
water saturation is mainly affected by the clay content, while movable water saturation is mainly affected by the gas
charging power (gas column height) and pore texture. From gas column vs. movable water saturation curve, the best
reservoir has the characteristics of mainly large pore and concave-shape curves in three reservoir categories. This new
approach could predict gas saturation distribution more accurately in different geological structures, which shows
significance in researching water-production reason, development index optimization and reservoir stimulation.
