|Evolution of the Barents Sea region and its hydrocarbon systems|
|The history of forming the Barents Sea region is considered. Five stages of its development are established: Lower Paleozoic (PreMiddle-Late Devonian), Middle-Paleozoic (Middle-Late Devonian – Early Permian), Paleozoic–Early Mesozoic (Early Permian–Triassic), Mesozoic (Jurassic-Cretaceous) and Cenozoic. Four Phanerozoic hydrocarbon systems, their generation and migration-accumulation conditions are described. The districts, most prospective for oil, are determined.
Key words: Barents Sea region, hydrocarbon system, geo-historical stages, hydrocarbon generation, hydrocarbon accumulation, oil source rocks formation, main stage of oil generation, index of generation potential.
