pdf  Silurian pelitic layers in Kaliningrad region - a possible target for hydrocarbon prospecting
The oil source layers of the Silurian deposits in the Kaliningrad region, allocated due to geochemical data based on the distribution of dispersed organic matter, were studied. The catagenesis grade of these layers was examined using different methods. It was supposed that oil will be the main type of fluid during their possible development. The scope of generation and the residual potential of shale layers of the region were determined; perspective areas for research were outlined.

Key words: hydrocarbons, oil source layers, Silurian, catagenesis of organic matter, Kaliningrad region.
