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  Some methodological aspects of petroleum geological zoning of the Barents-Kara region
Petroleum geological zoning of the Barents-Kara region, criteria of possible oil and gas complexes identification in the Paleozoic-Triassic part of the sequence, generation and accumulation capacity of the pre-Jurassic sediments are being described. Some features of composition, stratigraphic scope and distribution of potential oil and gas complexes within the continental shelf of the Barents and Kara Seas have been analyzed on the basis of geological interpretation of key regional geotraverses (made by «Sevmorgeo») and other geophysical data. Some methodological approaches were used when zoning of Paleozoic-Triassic part of the sedimentary cover. The sequence studied is divided into four types by the predominance of deposits of certain stratigraphic range; the depth of research was limited to 7 km. The "enlarged" method of oil and gas complex identification was chosen for the Timan-Pechora province, i.e. oil and gas complexes and potential oil and gas complexes revealed in different provinces are compatible with each other in terms of size and stratigraphic scope.
Key words: offshore, oil and gas complex, oil and gas province, distribution patterns, the Barents-Kara region, the Barents-North Kara oil and gas province, the Timan-Pechora province, the South Kara oil and gas area, Paleozoic-Triassic sediments.
