pdf  Oil and gas accumulation zone as an object of study and forecast
An attempt to implement theoretical and methodical views of A.A. Trofimuk, Yu.N. Karogodin, E.B. Movshovich and V.D. Nalivkin on the oil geological zonation and the term "oil and gas accumulation zone" was made. A sustained solution to isolate zonal hydrocarbon groups in plan and in section of the sedimentary cover is suggested according to the thirty-three well studied from several oil and gas basins of the world. Some general zonal morphological features of proven oil and gas accumulation zones are characterized.

Keywords: oil and gas accumulation zone, group of oil and gas fields, oil geological zonation.
