The distribution of 894 largest oil, gas and condensate fields discovered in 106 world oil-gas basins (OGB) is shown on the planetary profile continent-ocean. Their recoverable reserves are more than 60 million t o.e. Four categories of the OGB are established: profile continental part - 38 midland OGB, profile oceanic part - 16 margin-oceanic OGB, profile central part - 28 intercontinental OGB and 24 margin-continental OGB. The distribution of the largest fields by these categories has essentially uneven but quite regular character. The peculiarities of such distribution are proposed to use as a static base for forecasting the largest fields in the different basins of the World and Russia.
Key words: largest fields; classes of field size and phase types of fields; monophase and heterophase fields, continent; ocean; oil-gas basins - midland, intercontinental, margin-continental, margin-oceanic; phase types of basins.
