The petroleum prospects of the Timan-Pechora petroleum province (TPP) in the zone of onshore and offshore junction and on its offshore continuation are justified on the basis of solving the problem of developing a unified geological-geophysical model of structure of this district. This district is considered to be the nearest reserve of growing the base of explored oil reserves in the region and Russia. Such a model allowed specifying tectonic and oil-gas-geological zoning on the offshore continuation of the TPP and also essentially specifying the quantitative estimation of oil and gas resources, particularly in the districts of their increased concentration. Three principally new directions of exploration for oil and gas are determined.
Key words: petroleum prospects, geological-geophysical model, Timan-Pechora basin, facies zoning, exploration directions.
