pdf Peculiarities of structure and the conditions of forming the Lower-Middle Devonian Padeya formation, Central Pay-Khoy
An analysis of the largest gas fields, presented in the Cadastre, was conducted. 300 such fields (>75 billion m3), discovered in 52 world basins, were analyzed. Some peculiarities of their distribution by countries, sedimentary basins, geological systems, depth and reservoirs types are established. On the basis of using M. Shoell isotopic-kinetic model and peculiarities of occurrence of gas fields it was concluded about the kitchen-depression mechanism of forming the largest gas, gas-condensate and oil-gas-condensate accumulations on continents and modern continental shell.
Key words: cadastre, largest (unique, giant, large) gas fields, reserves, distribution, forming condition.

pdf  Hydrocarbon systems of Persian Gulf
Previously developed approaches to distinguishing hydrocarbon systems and hydrocarbon accumulation areas of different phase composition have been tested on the example of the unique in terms of resources well-studied oil and gas basin of the Persian Gulf. It is shown that oil and gas resources of areas and the largest deposits of megabasin are controlled by seven laterally and vertically integrated hydrocarbon systems that should be considered during oil and gas forecasting.

Keywords: oil and gas hydrocarbon systems, the largest fields, initial resources, oil and gas accumulation areas.

The hydrocarbon potential of large oil and gas accumulation areas of Central Asia is analyzed together with the distribution of proven and probable oil and gas reserves in the six areas. The distribution and genesis of the largest oil and gas fields are studied. Total reserves amount of 275 largest accumulations is calculated. Efficiency of hydrocarbon resources management of this region depends first of the prospecting rhythm and development of the largest fields. Intensifying of pipeline systems construction and establishing inter-state export-import relations should follow first step.
Key words: hydrocarbon, the largest field, oil and gas accumulation area, hydrocarbon system, oil and gas resources, Central Asia.

pdf  Knots of oil and gas production of global significance in the Russian north-western offshore: prospects of development
On the basis of generalizing the available materials on the petroleum potential of World basins and analyzing their role in oil and gas production the concept of the global significance knot of oil and gas production is first introduced. In the composition of the Earth intracontinental areals and margin-continental belts of petroleum accumulation, such knots are recognized as the regions of extensive concentration of highly prospective areas. Their total initial resources average 25-30 billion t of oil or 20 trillion m3 of gas, the presence of the largest fields is necessarily. 25 such knots providing the basic world oil and gas production over a long period of time is established. Three such knots are determined in the Russia north-western offshore and adjacent onshore: the Pechora knot now in force and the potentially prospective Yamalo-Kara and Barents knots. The resource characteristics and production possibilities of these knots and the prospects of heir development are considered.

Key words:global knot of oil and gas production, maximum oil and gas production, oil and gas reserves, oil and gas resources, largest hydrocarbon fields, Pechora Sea, Barents Sea, Kara Sea.

pdf  More precise forecast - necessary for efficient oil and gas prospecting activity in Russian seas
The basic geological and geochemical previsions of detailed forecast, which should determine the success of oil and gas fields prospecting (including the largest ones to), are formulated. This was made on the basis of detailed study of a large number of proven oil and gas accumulation in well-studied sedimentary basins. The figures and tables that describe the methodological aspects of detailed assumption forecast are presented. The forecast of possible existence of new large discoveries, including liquid hydrocarbons accumulation, is provided for the main domestic offshore areas with proven oil and gas potential.

Key words: more precise forecast, petroleum accumulation zones, large field, oil-and-gas source formation.

pdf  Areas of hydrocarbon accumulation as a basis for development of oil production in Russian Arctic
The areas of high concentration of hydrocarbons as the basic elements of possible and already organized centers of oil and stable condensate production are analyzed. A significant distribution of land with a high concentration and volume of hydrocarbons, along with the presence of large fields and rich oil accumulation zones are marked in the structure of these centers. A genetic connection of the areas to the accumulation areas of domanicite and offshore glinite, and to the subsequent evolution of hydrocarbon systems in continental margins is expected. The critical importance of oil production in the industrial and economic development of the Arctic is proved.
Key words: hydrocarbon, areas, centers, oil production, offshore area, Arctic, the largest fields.

pdf  Hydrocarbon marine basis of Russia and prospects of its development
Current hydrocarbon marine basis of Russia, namely its structure, resources and reserves, their distribution, as well as hydrocarbon basis exploration and preparation for development; and size distribution of oil, gas and condensate fields have been estimated. The plans and programs of the hydrocarbon marine basis study and development are considered, and the key problems of their implementation are highlighted. The target estimation of the resource basis of Russian seas is proposed as a systematic framework for the plans and programs implementation with most essential and important component distinguishing (as the priorities for its research and development): the largest fields, liquid hydrocarbons, oil and gas accumulation zones, most accessible coastal shallow waters in terms of development, border offshore areas in the delimitation zones. The target zoning of the Russian offshore waters means the selection of key areas and objects for prime implementation with the highest probability and efficiency. The establishment of coastal oil and gas production centers is proposed in various regions of Russia as a crucial operating method for target research and development of Russian hydrocarbon marine basis.
Key words: hydrocarbon marine basis, coastal oil and gas production centers, resources and reserves, offshore resources distribution, marine resources estimation, offshore zoning, oil and gas accumulation zone, transition zone.
