pdf  Geological zonation of oil fields and hydrocarbon resources of Russian Far East region
The results of evaluation of hydrocarbon resources of the Far East region are presented. The vast majority of resources are expected in the basins of Pacific island-arc margin, where oil and gas province of Japan Sea, Okhotsk province and Pre-Pacific oil and gas province are located. Most hydrocarbon-rich petroleum province is Okhotsk province, where the main resources are concentrated in the North Sakhalin and West Kamchatka petroleum areas. The structure and exploration degree of resources, their distribution in the sequence and phase composition are characterized. The basic risks of oil and gas prospecting are analyzed.

Key words: resources, reserves, estimation, production, Far East, North Sakhalin oil and gas area.
