The estimation method of residual reserves of depleted oil fields is analyzed on the basis of modification of a known method of geo-pendulum measurements. The possibility of clarifying the oil recovery factor is discussed as far as information on the volume of cumulative production becomes available and in accordance with the actual geological and commercial situation. Two multilayer deposits on the south of the Timan-Pechora oil and gas province with a long operating life were selected as the object of evaluation. The calculations were performed up to obtaining of sustainable result.

Keywords: method of statistical base, depleted oil fields, residual reserves, oil recovery factor.
