pdf  Electrometrical models of deep facies sequences in Western-Siberian Basin
Electrometrical models of facies, widely used in paleogeographic reconstructions, were developed in 1970-1980 for the continental and shallow-water sequences of the Western-Siberian Basin. With the adoption of a clinoform model of sedimentation for the Neocomian sections of this basin, deep-water deposit (depths of the first hundreds of meters) began to be identified. Today, the deep-water strata are actively involved in prospecting and exploration, and it is therefore necessary to complete the earlier studies with the development of electrometric models of the facies of these deposits. Seven main facies, which control the accumulation of deep-water sequences, are described in this paper, and their electrometrical models are developed, fact which will make it possible to study these promising petroleum-bearing strata more properly.

Keywords: electrometrical model of facies, clinoform sequences, deep-water deposit, Western-Siberian Basin.

pdf  Models of formation and techniques for search of hydrocarbons in the most significant "shale" formations of Russia
Complex of unconventional hydrocarbon resources being developed today are analyzed. It was established that shale hydrocarbons represent the priority in terms of technology of development and opportunity to extract not only gas but also oil. Conceptual model of "shale" formations in ancient and young platforms are analyzed, and it is stated that two types of reservoirs are found there, having different oil and gas potential. The technique for prospecting of the most promising oil and gas sites and shale formations are developed for subsequent exploration drilling.

Keywords: unconventional reservoir, "shale" formation, conceptual model, technique for hydrocarbon prospecting.

pdf  Geological structure and forecast of hydrocarbon accumulation distribution in Achimov formation of Western Siberia
The sedimentation conditions and development scale of the Achimov strata are analyzed. High prospects of their petroleum potential and the lack of search methodology for hydrocarbon accumulations confined to Achimov formation are shown. The current concept of sandstone sequences is described; and the model of sandstone depocenters accumulation of Achimov strata based on uneven thickening of the edge of the shallow shelf deposits is given. The forecast of hydrocarbon deposits distribution zones can increase the effectiveness of prospecting.

Keywords: hydrocarbons, Achimov formation, depocenter of sandstone, target of exploration, Western Siberia.

pdf  Urals fold-thrust area - as one of the largest petroleum objects of European Russia
The structural features of the fold-thrust zone of the Urals are described; main characters of petroleum potential distribution are established. Regions of the world that have similar tectonic structure (with proven oil bearing sedimentary cover) and similar hydrocarbon fields formation conditions have been are given as analogies. The probability of identification of significant hydrocarbon reserves within the fold-thrust belt of the Urals is confirmed by discoveries of oil and gas fields in the Komi Republic, Perm area, Sverdlovsk and Orenburg regions, Bashkortostan Republic, where hydrocarbon accumulations are found in the Permian, Carboniferous and Devonian sections.

Keywords: petroleum potential, paleoshelf, fold-thrust zone of the Urals, Kama-Kinel deflections system.
