pdf  Upper Proterozoic formations of Siberian platform – main source of oil and gas of Pre-Mesozoic megabasin
The history of the oil and gas genesis in the Riphean and Vendian complexes of Siberian platform was studied. Biomarkers were used to make the oils and syn-bitumens correlation with source rocks. Generally the oils of Nepa-Botuoba anteclise are genetically related to the Vendian source rocks, while the oils of Baikit anteclise and Katanga saddle are genetically related to the Riphean source rocks. The main source of oil and gas of the Pre-Mesozoic megabasin of Siberian platform are the Upper Proterozoic (Rifean and Vendian) source rocks.
Key words: oil and gas genesis, Riphean, Vendian, catagenetical «unconformity», hydrocarbons, biomarkers.
