|Interpretation of tectonic structure of northwestern offshore of the Black Sea for evaluation of petroleum potential prospects|
|The main challenge for regions with complex tectonics and structure where exploration activities are associated with high risk for geometrization of possible promising objects is to obtain a consistent structural interpretation of geological and geophysical data.
A comprehensive structural-tectonic interpretation of geological structure of the north-western part of the Black Sea is presented. Such interpretation includes not only mapping of layers and faults, but also performing of paleoreconstructions and checking the balance of a conceptual model.
The main tectonic and stratigraphic stages of development of the northwestern part of the Black Sea are determined; the risks associated with the structural interpretation are reduced significantly by creating of geometrically consistent structural-tectonic model, the age of deformations is clarified and estimated shortening / stretching of the area for one or another stage of geological evolution are calculated.
Key words: structural interpretation, the Black Sea, tectonics, inversion, paleoreconstruction, structure development.
