The performed research allowed actualizing the hydrocarbon resource base of the Kaliningrad oblast as of 01.01.2009, to estimate the state of oil reserves by fields and the hydrocarbon prospects of prepared and revealed structures. Analyzing the coefficient of ratio of oil reserve growth (at the expense of exploration) to production has shown that it is less than 1.0 and in 2008 it was only 0.16. And, as the exploration maturity of the region increases (from the anticline traps of discovered fields to uplifts revealed in recent years), natural worsening the morphological parameters of local objects is observed and, as a result, the volume of resources in them decreases.
Key words: Kaliningrad oblast, oil, reserves, resources, licensing.
