pdf  North-Western region as the mirror of the All-Russian tendencies in exploration
In recent years the Timan-Pechora petroleum province takes a leader position in petroleum production volumes and the pace of preparing the country oil resource base. The regional and departmental programs now in force as well as the actualized “Program of complex developing the hydrocarbon resources of the Russian North-Western region up to 2010” allowed to have a positive influence on the pace of renewing the hydrocarbon reserves of the region. On the one hand, the economic stability of companies-subsurface users performing their obligations and, on the other hand, enhancing the exploration maturity of new districts due to the scientifically substantiated pace of regional researches are favorable to reserve growth and increasing the volumes of exploration works. However, under “crisis” economic conditions there is need to create a centralized fund or use specialized assignment for maintaining the volumes and pace of exploration works.

Key words: Timan-Pechora petroleum province, volume and pace of exploration works, renewal of hydrocarbon reserves, subsurface use.
