|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.
