pdf  Сleavage fabric – significant faсtor creating discrete hydrocarbon migration pathways in diagenetic to low metamorphic pelites
*The article is presented in English.
From the point of view of petroleum geology, the transformation experienced by pelitic rocks with petroleum potential in the regional burial process in the domain of diagenesis to low metamorphism past a certain point can by a significant risk factor - an important reduction of porosity-permeability, petroleum pathways disturbing, and over maturation of organic matter. The cleavage structures developed during the conversion into the new structural conditions can even produce open space volumes with crenulation distance spaces varying in the presented areas from 20 to 150 micrometers, spaces that could constitute discrete pathways for a variety of fluids. Certain terrains with a favourable petrogenetic profile (pelitic rocks with cleavage development and temperatures conditions not exceeding 100-150°C) may be considered as potential petroleum discrete pathways. For petroleum prospecting activity the previously described terrains could represent a possible interesting areas.

Keywords: pelitic rocks, crenulation distance space, cleavage fabric, discrete pathways for petroleum fluids, potential petroleum bearing area.

pdf  Domanik type petroleum systems in Timan-Pechora sedimentary basin
The organic matter riche, low porosity and low permeability claystone belonging to Semiluky strata are parallelized with sequences of Domanik type in the Timan-Pechora basin. Domanik type section and the Late Frasnian - Early Famennian facial sequences analogues corresponding to this level are mapable on the regional scale. Some of petroleum systems of the Timan-Pechora Basin are analyzed: Domanik-Famennian Upper-Paleozoic-Triassic, Domanik unconventional, Wenlockian-Lower Devonian Upper-Paleozoic-Triassic, Artinskian-Kungurian Permian-Triassic.

pdf  Contributions to the terminology of hydrocarbons bearing shale formations – unconventional sources of oil and gas
The terminology of shale formations is discussed in the article, which is substantiated by significant growth of interest of the petroleum industry to the hydrocarbon resources in the unconventional/tight reservoir. The same interest was dedicated to the hydrocarbons bearing shale deposits found under continuous improvements of shale formations development. The main goal is to unify the terminology related to different types of hydrocarbon accumulations in unconventional tight rocks - shale formations.

Key words: petroleum potential, tight reservoir, unconventional hydrocarbon reservoir, source rocks, oil and gas from shale.

pdf  Bakken Formation: geology, development history and petroleum potential
The Upper Devonian and Lower Mississipian unconventional (continuous) oil resource – Bakken Formation, one of the most distinctive stratigraphic sequences in the Williston Basin (underlying parts of Montana, North Dakota, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) in USA and Canada is investigated. The geological and geochemical characteristics of the Bakken-Lodgepole section and its petroleum system are discussed. The development history of Bakken Formation is outlined. The production rate from tight reservoirs of Bakken Formation has increased significantly due to the implementation of new horizontal drilling technology with multy-stage formation hydraulic fracturing.

Key words: tight reservoir, petroleum potential, horizontal drilling, petroleum system, shale, Bakken Formation.

pdf  Some aspects of oil shale - finding kerogen to generate oil*
*The article is presented in two languages, English and Russian.
Oil demand is predicted to continue to increase despite the high price of oil. The lagging supply increased the prices for oil and gas and a definitive oil replacement has still not been found. Huge oil shale resources discovered in the world, if developed, may increase petroleum supplies. Developing of oil shale needs the availability of low cost production; the greatest risks facing oil shale developing are higher production expenses and lower oil prices. There are several technologies for producing oil from kerogen bearing oil shale, by pyrolysis (heating, retorting). Oil shale is still technologically difficult and expensive to produce and the major impediment is cost. Developing oil shale accumulations means to face huge challenges, but an efficient oil shale development can be accomplished and an acceptable oil shale industry based on new technologies can be built nowadays.

Key words: shale, continuous accumulation, oil shale, shale oil, total organic carbon, Rock-Eval, reserves estimation, Fischer assay, mining and retorting, in situ retorting and extraction, in capsule extraction.

pdf  North-Western region as the mirror of the All-Russian tendencies in exploration
In recent years the Timan-Pechora petroleum province takes a leader position in petroleum production volumes and the pace of preparing the country oil resource base. The regional and departmental programs now in force as well as the actualized “Program of complex developing the hydrocarbon resources of the Russian North-Western region up to 2010” allowed to have a positive influence on the pace of renewing the hydrocarbon reserves of the region. On the one hand, the economic stability of companies-subsurface users performing their obligations and, on the other hand, enhancing the exploration maturity of new districts due to the scientifically substantiated pace of regional researches are favorable to reserve growth and increasing the volumes of exploration works. However, under “crisis” economic conditions there is need to create a centralized fund or use specialized assignment for maintaining the volumes and pace of exploration works.

Key words: Timan-Pechora petroleum province, volume and pace of exploration works, renewal of hydrocarbon reserves, subsurface use.

Information resources, in the light of fast changing scientific demands through the organization of a fast access to information sources, perform its important task - the service of science and education at a modern technical-technological level. The paper is devoted to describing the new VNIGRI project - creating the accessible scientific electronic journal Oil-gas geology. Theory and practice. The high scientific level of the publications in this journal will allow it performing the scientific-research, educational, enlightener and information functions in the sphere of oil-gas geology. The practical objective of creating such a journal is the introduction of an electronic edition in branch scientific medium for enhancing the efficiency of scientific-research works.
Key words: electronic scientific journal, information resources, Russian science, oil-gas geology, impact-factor of the journal, index of citing.
