pdf  Permian complex as a new petroleum prospect object in Uliyanovsk area
The oil-bearing potential analysis of the Melekess Depression sedimentary cover allowed us to determine the Permian clastic-carbonate oil and gas complex as a possible perspective in terms of hydrocarbon deposits discovery. The diverse geological methods, reflecting the sequence of the main stages of hydrocarbon accumulation process, were applied during forecasting the new search objects. As a result of research, 14 local structural traps prospecting for new accumulations of natural bitumen and possibly heavy high-viscosity oils were identified on the western side of the depression. Their resources of D0 category were pre-evaluated.

Keywords: Permian deposits, basin modeling, structural trap, natural bitumen, Melekess Depression, Volga-Ural oil and gas province.

pdf  Geological zonation of oil fields and hydrocarbon resources of Russian Far East region
The results of evaluation of hydrocarbon resources of the Far East region are presented. The vast majority of resources are expected in the basins of Pacific island-arc margin, where oil and gas province of Japan Sea, Okhotsk province and Pre-Pacific oil and gas province are located. Most hydrocarbon-rich petroleum province is Okhotsk province, where the main resources are concentrated in the North Sakhalin and West Kamchatka petroleum areas. The structure and exploration degree of resources, their distribution in the sequence and phase composition are characterized. The basic risks of oil and gas prospecting are analyzed.

Key words: resources, reserves, estimation, production, Far East, North Sakhalin oil and gas area.

pdf  Funds of oil and gas fields on the territory of the Far Eastern region
On the territory of the Far Eastern region, the first oil field was discovered on Sakhalin in 1923. Since that time still 65 oil and gas fields were discovered on this island. In the 1980s the geography of discoveries expanded at the expense of Kamchatka and Chukotka. Sakhalin is a basic oil-gas-producing district in the region. Its oil production peaked at 2.7 million t in 1983, thereafter it has been decreasing steadily as well as gas production which peaked in 1989 – 1.9 billion m3. Apparently that neither new rare discoveries with lesser reserves on Sakhalin nor widening the geography of discoveries are not capable to have a marked effect on this tendency.
Key words: field, reserves, oil, gas, ultimate potential resources, distributed fund, undistributed fund, the Far East.
