pdf  Knots of oil and gas production of global significance in the Russian north-western offshore: prospects of development
On the basis of generalizing the available materials on the petroleum potential of World basins and analyzing their role in oil and gas production the concept of the global significance knot of oil and gas production is first introduced. In the composition of the Earth intracontinental areals and margin-continental belts of petroleum accumulation, such knots are recognized as the regions of extensive concentration of highly prospective areas. Their total initial resources average 25-30 billion t of oil or 20 trillion m3 of gas, the presence of the largest fields is necessarily. 25 such knots providing the basic world oil and gas production over a long period of time is established. Three such knots are determined in the Russia north-western offshore and adjacent onshore: the Pechora knot now in force and the potentially prospective Yamalo-Kara and Barents knots. The resource characteristics and production possibilities of these knots and the prospects of heir development are considered.

Key words:global knot of oil and gas production, maximum oil and gas production, oil and gas reserves, oil and gas resources, largest hydrocarbon fields, Pechora Sea, Barents Sea, Kara Sea.

pdf  Oil-gas complexes of the Pechora shelf
A sedimentary cover of the Pechora Sea prospective for oil and gas is divided into 6 oil-gas complexes (OGC). Lithological-facies zoning of the OGC is performed, the main types of sequences of the OGC are characterized, basic source rocks formations, permeable strata and seals are described, mining and petrophysical parameters are shown. Oil-gas complexes – the major objects of exploration on the shelf of the Pechora Sea – are determined.
Key words: Pechora Sea, Pechora syneclise, Korotaikhinsk depression, oil-gas complexes, lithologic-facies zones.

pdf  Evolution of the Barents Sea region and its hydrocarbon systems
The history of forming the Barents Sea region is considered. Five stages of its development are established: Lower Paleozoic (PreMiddle-Late Devonian), Middle-Paleozoic (Middle-Late Devonian – Early Permian), Paleozoic–Early Mesozoic (Early Permian–Triassic), Mesozoic (Jurassic-Cretaceous) and Cenozoic. Four Phanerozoic hydrocarbon systems, their generation and migration-accumulation conditions are described. The districts, most prospective for oil, are determined.
Key words: Barents Sea region, hydrocarbon system, geo-historical stages, hydrocarbon generation, hydrocarbon accumulation, oil source rocks formation, main stage of oil generation, index of generation potential.

pdf  Factors of forming the unique Shtokman-Ludlov knot of gas accumulation in the Barents Sea
The three largest gas and gas-condensate fields (Shtokman, Ludlov and Ledovoye) form a unique knot of gas accumulation in the central part of the Russian shelf, Barents Sea. The formation of the Shtokman-Ludlov knot of gas accumulation is due to the favorable combination of historical-geological factors. Their analysis allows forecasting the new large gas and gas-condensate fields within it.
Key words: Barents Sea, Jurassic deposits, seals, reservoirs, accumulation, generation, katagenesis.

pdf  Hydrocarbon marine basis of Russia and prospects of its development
Current hydrocarbon marine basis of Russia, namely its structure, resources and reserves, their distribution, as well as hydrocarbon basis exploration and preparation for development; and size distribution of oil, gas and condensate fields have been estimated. The plans and programs of the hydrocarbon marine basis study and development are considered, and the key problems of their implementation are highlighted. The target estimation of the resource basis of Russian seas is proposed as a systematic framework for the plans and programs implementation with most essential and important component distinguishing (as the priorities for its research and development): the largest fields, liquid hydrocarbons, oil and gas accumulation zones, most accessible coastal shallow waters in terms of development, border offshore areas in the delimitation zones. The target zoning of the Russian offshore waters means the selection of key areas and objects for prime implementation with the highest probability and efficiency. The establishment of coastal oil and gas production centers is proposed in various regions of Russia as a crucial operating method for target research and development of Russian hydrocarbon marine basis.
Key words: hydrocarbon marine basis, coastal oil and gas production centers, resources and reserves, offshore resources distribution, marine resources estimation, offshore zoning, oil and gas accumulation zone, transition zone.
