The basic problems of geological-economic substantiating the priority directions of oil and gas exploration and production are considered. A significant increase in the detail of the forecast is needed for solving such problems. It is not enough to make quantitative estimation of the petroleum districts under current conditions of subsoil use. The estimation of the zones of petroleum accumulation or individual prospecting areas is required. Besides, it is necessary to separate the estimation of the hydrocarbon forecast resources of distributed and undistributed funds. The factors determining the commercial significance of forecast hydrocarbon resources and also the indices providing the choice of priority directions of oil and gas exploration and production are substantiated.

Key words: geological-economic estimation, increase in detail of forecast, commercial significance of hydrocarbon resources.
