Timan-Pechora, Volga-Urals and Caspian oil and gas provinces are located at the East European Platform margins as well as north and south adjacent Barents-Kara and North Caspian oil and gas provinces. Barents and Caspian oil and gas bearing zone is one of the richest oil and gas bearing zones in the world. The study of geodynamics, paleogeography, non-anticline traps distribution, zones of reservoir pinching-out at the East European Platform margins has allowed us to draw conclusions on hydrocarbon concentration zones of land and offshore areas of the oil and gas basins of Barents and Caspian oil and gas bearing zone.

Key words: Barents and Caspian oil and gas bearing zone, geodynamics, paleogeography, non-anticline traps, thinning zones.
