pdf  Some issues of study and development of hydrocarbon potential of Russian Seas
Some issues related to the process of study and development of hydrocarbon potential of Russian Seas are analyzed. These issues are: a) the lack of validity of marine hydrocarbon potential evaluation due to poor regional knowledge; b) differences in estimates of reserves in marine deposits, c) non-optimal organization of prospect activity and exploration; and d) technological base, that provides exploration drilling and development of offshore oil and gas fields, does not fulfill modern requirements.

Key words: marine hydrocarbon potential, resource evaluation, subsoil users, licensing of offshore areas, exploration drilling, floating rigs, offshore hydrocarbon deposits, offshore production platforms.
