pdf  History of geological prospecting and exploration for oil-and-gas at the area of Siberian platform and surrounding regions
The paper traces history of geological investigations of the oil and gas potential of the region in Khatanga-Vilyuy and Lena-Tungusskaya oil-and-gas-bearing provinces. In the whole, there are summarized results of VNIGRI works at Siberian platform and joining Verkhoyansk-Chukotka folded area. Development of the oil-and-gas resources of the East Siberia (Siberian platform) is actually sharply needed for large-scale entrance of Russia in the growing energy market of the Asia-Pacific region.
Key words: History, Siberian platform, Khatanga-Vilyuy and Lena-Tungusskaya oil-and-gas-bearing provinces, natural oil sources, oil-and-gas potential, Verkhoyansk-Chukotka folded area; lithological-stratigraphic, tectonics and neotectonics, hydrogeological, oil-and gas geological investigations of VNIGRI.
