|Petroleum potential prospects of the Baltic Sea shelf|
|The interest in the study of petroleum potential prospects of the Baltic Sea shelf and the choice of priority exploration objects in this part of the region, including the offshore zones of Lithuania and Latvia, has been recently growing. Especially this evolution is connected with the recent successes of the LUKOIL oil company in the Russian sector of the Baltic, and the discovery of several oil fields in the recent years.
The information on the current state of geological and geophysical study of the region (primarily within the former Baltic Sea Soviet sector) is given on the basis of data analysis of the last years. The main results of shelf oil exploration in recent years are provided; the geological structure and petroleum potential are characterized; and the promising directions of work are proposed.
Keywords: oil fields, offshore oil exploration, petroleum potential prospects, Baltic Sea shelf.

|Regional hydrocarbon potential of the Far East in the XXI century: exploration results and trends in subsoil use|
|The conventional object of study - the Far East - is expanded due to the adjacent waters of the territorial sea. The current state of the regional hydrocarbon potential is determined by the results of the annual monitoring of regional and exploration activities. The long-term trends in subsoil are determined according to the monitoring results of exploration carried out in this century. Surface exploration are characterized by a very low efficiency in this century. The land and water areas within the land-sea basins, including the territorial sea, have been and remain the priority areas of subsoil use in the region.
Keywords: subsoil use, licensing, hydrocarbons, oil, gas, territorial sea, regional and exploration activities, drilling, seismic surveys.

|Structure of southeastern pericratonal plunging of Siberian Platform|
|The structural-stratigraphic complexes, the main structural elements and the main stages in the formation of the sedimentary cover of southeastern pericratonal plunging of the Siberian Platform are analyzed. The overwhelming part of the cover is complicated with Riphean and Vendian-Cambrian deposits. The main orogeny era, especially the final Late Cimmerian, led to the consolidation of sediments on the overwhelming eastern part of the pericratonal, formation of Sette-Daban folded zone and Aldan-May "residual" pericratonal depression at its extreme west.

|Oil and gas formation in the Aldan-Maya basin (Eastern Siberia)|
|The basic features of the structure of the Aldan-Maya basin represented by the Riphean, Vendian and Cambrian deposits are analized. The upper subformation of Malka Formation of R2, Ignikan Formation (upper part of a Lokhandin series) of R3, and Inikan Formation of C1-2 are considered as petroleum source rocks. The scale of primary hydrocarbons migration and their possibly large losses due to complex geological structure of the region and repeated erosional events were counted on the basis of mapping of petroleum source deposits and calculated genetic evolution models of VNIGRI.
Keywords: petroleum source formation, primary migration, migration hydrocarbons, Aldan- Maya basin.

|Hydrocarbon resource base of Republic of Sakha (Yakutia)|
|High assess of total initial hydrocarbon resources and poor degree of exploration have allowed to expect new large discoveries in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). However, the set of prepared structures and the degree of their involvement in exploration are clearly not consistent with the forecasted opportunities of the region. The rate of reserves growth, including due to new discoveries are also low. All this is taking place against the background of significant increase of exploration cost. In the short term oil and gas production in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) will be determined by the rates of development of old fields.
The reserves growth is required to create a reliable hydrocarbon resource base in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). This, in turn, requires a sharp increase in the volume of work, stabilization of the unit cost for their performance, and expansion of prospecting and exploration activities outside the Nepa-Botuoba oil and gas area, where the degree of hydrocarbon resources’ exploration has exceeded 40%.
Key words: hydrocarbons, total initial resources, petroleum potential, reserves renewal, the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia).

|Oil and gas perspective objects of the Russian Far East|
|The geological peculiarities and the main geological properties of the Mesozoic-Cenozoic strata of land and water areas of the Far East, representing small depressions of the continent and large sedimentary basins of the Pacific island-arc margin, are characterized. Depressions of continent are represented by terrigenous and volcanic-sedimentary rocks of a wide age range from the Triassic to the Cenozoic. Pacific margin sedimentary basins are represented mainly by Cenozoic strata up to 12-13 km. The geological peculiarities of rocks of these basins are diverse and characterized by sharp lithofacies variability. The main oil and gas potential of the Far East are associated with terrigenous deposits of large fluvial, deltaic and canyon sedimentation systems of the inner part of island-arc margin.
Key words: Far East, sedimentary basins, lithology, petroleum potential.

|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.

The zonation of the Far Eastern onshore and offshore into oil-gas regions with the oil and gas fields characterizing by the similar conditions of formation and unified oil-gas complexes is conducted. Six oil-gas regions are most prolific; they contain 75% of total resources. The estimation of reliability of resource forecast is conducted; the major risks of searches for oil and gas are determined

|Sequence stratigraphy in studying the structure of sedimentary covers|
|It is shown that sequence stratigraphy is based on the fundamental conceptions of stratigraphy and lithology. The achievement of this new sphere of knowledge consists in discovering and deciphering the sedimentation structure of an elementary cell of over-rock level of sedimentary systems - sequence, in determining the decisive role of eustatic events in sedimentation cyclic recurrence and in the priority of obliquely laminated stratigraphy over flat-parallel. The hierarchy of a geological sedimentary system is proposed; the considerable opportunities of sequence stratigraphy in developing sedimentation models and in the forecast of oil-gas reservoirs are shown
