pdf  Genesis conditions of the Riphean-Lower Cambrian sand and pelitic rocks in petroleum potential evaluation of Pred-Patom foredeep
Oil and gas potential of the Riphean-Lower Cambrian strata in the central and eastern parts of Pred-Patom foredeep was evaluated using analytical study of sedimentation environments, composition and reservoir properties of terrigenous rocks, minerals and sealing features of pelitic rocks. Dynamo-genetic diagram was constructed as a result of cumulative curves’ correlation. Preliminary information on the sedimentation conditions of terrigenous rocks was obtained. Marine and coastal facies are identified. Mineralogical study of pelitic rocks was conducted. Capacitance-filtration properties of terrigenous and pelitic rocks were evaluated.
Key words: Pred-Patom foredeep, grain composition, mineral composition, facies, sedimentation conditions, Riphean, Vendian, Lower Cambrian.

pdf  Mineral resource base and prospects of oil and gas production centres development in the east of Russia
Hydrocarbon mineral resource base of Eastern Siberia and the Russian Far East is considered. The future prospects of four oil and gas centers that are under development now are described. These centers will be able to produce 72 million tons of oil and 90 billion m3 of gas in 2020 provided that exploration and projecting works are under way and industrial infrastructure has already been established in the area.
Key words: Eastern Siberia, the Far East, oil and gas potential prospects, oil and gas production center, industrial infrastructure, hydrocarbon mineral resource base.
