pdf  Urals fold-thrust area - as one of the largest petroleum objects of European Russia
The structural features of the fold-thrust zone of the Urals are described; main characters of petroleum potential distribution are established. Regions of the world that have similar tectonic structure (with proven oil bearing sedimentary cover) and similar hydrocarbon fields formation conditions have been are given as analogies. The probability of identification of significant hydrocarbon reserves within the fold-thrust belt of the Urals is confirmed by discoveries of oil and gas fields in the Komi Republic, Perm area, Sverdlovsk and Orenburg regions, Bashkortostan Republic, where hydrocarbon accumulations are found in the Permian, Carboniferous and Devonian sections.

Keywords: petroleum potential, paleoshelf, fold-thrust zone of the Urals, Kama-Kinel deflections system.
