pdf  Approaches to evaluation of Domanik sequences of Timan-Pechora Province as unconventional hydrocarbon source

A comprehensive assessment of the hydrocarbon potential of Domanik section of the Timan-Pechora province is realized on the basis of the study of lithofacial, biocenotic composition and organic matter. Preliminary division of bitumen on epigenetic and syngenetic is substantiated to determine the parameters of generation, primary migration and preservation of Domanik hydrocarbons accumulations. After detailed studying of domanikits the differences of organic matter maturity in several katagenesis range within the thickness of few tens of meters are shown. Oil and gas potential of Domanik Formation and Vetlasyansky member is proved.
Keywords: Domanik type deposits, petroleum source rocks, katagenesis, syngenetic and epigenetic bitumens, density of hydrocarbon generation, primary migration of hydrocarbons.

pdf  Methodological aspects of catagenesis study of sapropelic organic matter in oil and gas potential evaluation

The evaluation of catagenesis level of sapropelic organic matter from the Early Paleozoic and Late Proterozoic sediments causes certain methodological difficulties. A comparative analysis of different methods of organic matter study has been carried out in order to choose optimal methods for the determination of composition and the evaluation of organic matter catagenesis level. The efficient set of methods based on the joint application of palynological and infrared spectroscopic methods has been justified, which enables us to conduct systemic research of organic matter on three interrelated levels: taxonomic; geo-polymeric and molecular. The set of methods proposed can enhance the efficiency of oil and gas exploration.
Key words: the Lower Paleozoic and the Upper Proterozoic sediments, catagenesis level, insoluble organic matter, palynological method, infrared spectroscopic method, oil and gas exploration efficiency.

The obtained experimental data are indicative of the presence of non-graphitic carbon in the studied samples of kerogen. On this basis, the relative content of graphitic and non-graphitic carbon may be a key parameter of the structure of kerogen carbonic matter. Its dependence on the composition of original organic matter and the degree of its catagenesis makes this parameter useful in estimating the petroleum potential of sedimentary rocks.
Key words: organic matter of rocks, kerogen, catagenesis, structure of carbonic matter, non-graphitic carbon, IR-spectroscopy, X-ray diffraction.

pdf Dynamics of the share of the relative content of hard-to-recover oil reserves in balance reserves
More than half of proven oil fields are presented by hard-to-recover oil reserves either by the quality (heavy or high viscosity oils) or location (permeability less than 0,05 um2). Hard-to-recover oil fields are characterized by low and unstable well flow rates, operation of which is hardly cost-effective in the current conditions of the Russian subsoil use. The total percentage of hard-to-recover oils in the proven reserves of Russia has exceeded 60% (in Khanty-Mansiysk District - 67%). The structure of residual oil reserves is significantly deteriorating mostly due to the fiscal extraction tax, which caused selective development of the best reserves providing 2/3 of the oil production in Russia. The tendency of increasing the percentage of hard-to-recover oils will still exist in the future. The remaining oil reserves for cost-effective development in the modern mining conditions can provide oil production, at best, until 2015. The main way of the solution of this problem is the implementation of exploration work for new fields' identification; development of previously identified undeveloped fields, development of new high technologies of oil production, integrated approach to oil refining and improvement of the regulatory framework for the oil industry.
Key words: hard-to-recover oil reserves, oil reserves structure, oil production structure, heavy oils, low permeability reservoir, development efficiency.

pdf  Regarding environmental control at the objects of hydrocarbon production, refining and transportation
An analysis of a number of the environmental safety aspects being considered as the elements of the united system of environmental safety has been performed for a particular case of oil-gas industry - for the Timan-Pechora petroleum province oil-gas complex. The hierarchic structural scheme of environmental control has been proposed as a basis for ensuring environmental safety at the objects of oil-gas industry. In accordance with this scheme, each hierarchic level of environmental control (federal, regional local ones) is determined by its peculiar indices of environmental safety and respectively it controls them. On the basis of this scheme these indices have been ranked in accordance with the different levels of environmental control. Such ranking makes possible the more adequate estimation of environmental safety degree at the oil-gas industry objects and thus the optimization of planning the measures on environmental safety
Key words: environmental safety, environment protection, oil-gas industry, environmental protection measures.
