pdf  Structural conditions for petroleum traps creation in the Northwest Caucasus area
Тhe structural analysis performed allows to clarify the picture of the regional tectonics and to offer reliable and consistent models of oil and gas formation in the Northwest Caucasus orogenic area. Disclosure of regional structure patterns and tectonic evolution of the study area could allows the identification of new promising areas and the successful search of new accumulations of petroleum resources.

Keywords: orogenic area, tectonic evolution, petroleum trap, Northwest Caucasus.
