pdf  Northwestern Timan-Pechora basin - new insights into petroleum potential prospects
The prospective area of hydrocarbon deposits’ studied in the northwestern part of the Timan-Pechora Basin and its offshore extension (Izhma-Pechora Syneclise, onshore and offshore parts of Malozemelsk-Kolguev Monocline) are presented. For the moment this area seems to be not very attractive for the subsoil investors and users due to a poorly developed sedimentary cover, concerning the main perspective complexes, small progress in detailed delineation of the objects prepared for drilling and not finally identification of the oil and gas source rocks. The exploration under government contracts allowed to establish a large development of the Lower-Middle Paleozoic perspective complexes and identify a buried amplitude shaft (Novoborsky). The research aimed at tracking of the Lower Paleozoic buried structures in the offshore and identifying the most promising objects, where parametric wells can be projected and located for estimation of oil and gas systems, is substantiated.

Keywords: tectonical structure, petroleum potential prospects, buried structures, Lower-Middle Ordovician oil and gas complex, oil and gas accumulation zones, Izhma-Pechora Syneclise, Malozemelsk-Kolguev Monocline.
