In this study, the relationship between the anomalous heat area and the pore pressure of the formations was investigated. The main objective of this study is to identifY the effect of the anomalous heat area on the pore pressure of the formation. In oil and gas exploration, pore pressure is one of the important parameter that must be taken into consideration because it has the ability to affect the drilling process in terms of cost and safety and it is also critical for assessing exploration risk factors including the migration of formation fluids and seal integrity. As the depth of the exploration goes deeper into the earth crust, the heat generated from the core will become a more prominent factor that could affect the condition of the formation thus affecting the pore pressure. In this study, the data from anomalous heat flow reservoir will be acquired for analyzing purpose. Data such as geothermal gradient, pressure and other parameters are plotted into graph. From those graphs, the relationship between anomalous heat flow area and pore pressure will be established. From this study, it is expected that the anomalous heat flow area will affect the pore pressure of the formation by either increasing or reducing the pore pressure of the formation in the reservoir. iv
