pdf  Petroleum potential prospects of Tsil’egorsk Depression and adjacent areas
Tsil’egorsk Depression and adjacent areas are characterized by significant petroleum potential prospects in the Komi Republic and the Nenets Autonomous District. The main prospects are associated with the Lower Devonian deposits, Upper Devonian reefal structures and Lower Permian biohermal objects. Resource assessment of localized objects can reach up to 100 million tons of oil resources. Undiscovered reserves of C2 category are also significant. This means that in case of a large increase in prospecting and exploration the oil production can be greatly expanded for production companies and there could be a good opportunity for new enterprises to start production.

Keywords: petroleum potential, reef, Devonian, Carboniferous, Permian, reservoir, cap rock, petroleum prospects.

pdf  Petroleum potential of Middle - Upper Devonian reef section in the junction zone of Kosyu-Rogow Depression and the Western Ural fold-thrust zone
The article provide the characteristic of new perspective object identified by drilling of exploratory well Levogrubeyyuskaya-1 in the Eastern Lemva area (Timan-Pechora province). These deposits are barrier-type reefs in the bordering uplift of the platform. The results of gas resources evaluation of this accumulation are presented. Resource assessment of the Eastern Lemva perspective gas-bearing area will be expanded significantly due to identifying new perspective Middle - Upper Devonian reef object.

Key words: gas resources, reef deposit, Middle - Upper Devonian, Timan-Pechora province, Eastern Lemva area.

pdf  Oil and gas exploration in Republic of Komi
Perspective areas in Republic of Komi are as follows: Upper Devonian - Tournaisian oil and gas complex of Tsilegorsk area and southern Denisovsk Depression, in which Silurian oil and gas accumulation zones were identified. The prospects of Khoreyver Depression are associated with the Asselian-Sakmarian biostromes and bioherms. Oil and gas accumulation zones in Upper Ordovician deposits are expected in Kosyu-Rogow Depression and on the Chernyshev Ridge, where Silurian and Lower Devonian deposits are perspective too. The zones associated with large overthrust folds are related to the folded part of the Pre-Ural trough.

Key words: oil, gas, reserve renewing, oil and gas accumulation zone, oil and gas complex, exploration, Republic of Komi.
