pdf Current state of petroleum exploration activity and their evolution in the Bukhara-Khiva area (Uzbekistan)
The Bukhara-Khiva region is the main petroleum bearing area in the Republic of Uzbekistan, not only in the production of hydrocarbons, but also in its annual growth. The article provides an overview of their region, the history of geological and geophysical knowledge, lithologic and stratigraphic characteristics of several sections, their tectonic structures and their oil and gas content. The stratigraphic and tectonic confinement of these sections and their phase composition are presented. The results of geological exploration, and the history of the region development is considered, including those carried out by investors, the number of discovered accumulations, their ranking by fluid type, and the degree of development are too presented. Priority stratigraphic columns of rocks and areas for further exploration have been identified.
The region’s oil and gas prospects are substantiated by the presence of a significant and promising traps, as well as promising and predictable hydrocarbon resources too. Predictable resources of hydrocarbon feedstocks are presented by stratigraphic sections: Paleozoic, Lower Middle Jurassic, Middle Upper Jurassic and Lower Cretaceous, which indicates a high hydrocarbon potential and feasibility of further exploration for oil and gas in the Bukhara-Khiva area of Uzbekistan.

Keywords: petroleum geological exploration, petroleum accumulation, petroleum bearing, Bukhara-Khiva area, Uzbekistan.
