Preparation to licensing the new prospective for oil and gas directions of exploration is carried out at the expense of regional works conducted on budget money. The efficiency of regional works must be determined by demands for licenses on corresponding objects and total exploration directions. In the northern part of the Timan-Pechora petroleum province a share of explored reserves of ultimate potential resources is less than 50%. At the same time all its central parts are licensed and they don’t provide the necessary level of renewal of hydrocarbon reserves. On the basis of generalizing geological-geophysical materials, the petroleum prospects of the Kosyu–Rogovsk and Korotaikhinsk depressions are considered; the program of exploration in their limits is proposed. Conducting seismic exploration and also drilling a stratigraphical well will allow estimating the prospects of the new important direction of exploration for oil and gas in the Timan-Pechora province already in the nearest future. It may become the object of active licensing and widening the oil and gas production base in the region
Key words: regional exploration, prospects for oil and gas, stratigraphical well, Kosyu-Rogovsk and Korotaikhinsk depressions, Preduralian and Prednovozemelsk troughs.
