pdf  Trends in development of oil and gas reserves classification
Although Russian domestic classification of oil and gas reserves, has common roots with foreign classifications, it has been developing for a long time in a direction different from the international classification. Its development took place along the way to increase the number of classification categories of resources and reserves, accompanied by the decreasing of the requirements to their validity, especially economic feasibility; while foreign classifications took place along the way of detailing and stringent of requirements to the most reasonable category of reserves - proved reserves, primarily commercial requirements. Russian companies have to combine alternative approaches to classification requirements, and account their oil and gas reserves by double standards - domestic and international.

Keywords: oil and gas reserves, oil and gas resources, well, exploration activity, oil and gas reserves classification.

pdf Regional hydrocarbon potential of the Far East in the XXI century: exploration results and trends in subsoil use
The conventional object of study - the Far East - is expanded due to the adjacent waters of the territorial sea. The current state of the regional hydrocarbon potential is determined by the results of the annual monitoring of regional and exploration activities. The long-term trends in subsoil are determined according to the monitoring results of exploration carried out in this century. Surface exploration are characterized by a very low efficiency in this century. The land and water areas within the land-sea basins, including the territorial sea, have been and remain the priority areas of subsoil use in the region.

Keywords: subsoil use, licensing, hydrocarbons, oil, gas, territorial sea, regional and exploration activities, drilling, seismic surveys.

pdf  Revision, reestimation and representation in a modern format are necessary for the nearest reserve of hydrocarbon raw material of Russia
The reserves of fields of an undistributed fund and the prospective resources of objects prepared for deep drilling are the most justified and reliable part of Russia hydrocarbon potential. The volumes of hydrocarbon raw material of the nearest reserve are considerable but their justification and trustworthiness are extremely distinct. The works on its revision and reestimation being carried out must reveal the active part of the reserve having the most actual licensing prospects. The reserves of the fields must be recalculated and reevaluated in accordance with the new “Classification of reserves and resources of oil and combustible gases” confirmed as of 01.01.2005; prospective resources are calculated and reestimated by the previous procedure. The works on revision and reestimation are conducted synchronously by the same organizations that simplifies the necessary and inevitable coordination of their work.

The first domestic classification (1928) took into consideration only three categories of reserves and it agreed closely with foreign classifications. The classification 2001 already took into consideration eight categories of reserves and resources. Its correlation with the American SPE classification shows significant difference between them. Only if we understand their primordial nature it will be possible to eliminate or smooth out these differences.

pdf  Аchievements and problems of using subsurface resources on the sakhalin shelf
A large center of marine oil-gas production is built on the Far East of Russia. It is formed on the basis of hydrocarbon reserves prepared on the Sakhalin shelf in the Soviet period of our history. The total hydrocarbon reserves of the nine fields, discovered in this period, comprise more than 1.8 billion t o.e., cumulative hydrocarbon production of three fields (since 1999) by the Sakhalin 1 and Sakhalin 2 projects already exceeded 30 million t o.e. The production peak of these fields and also three fields prepared for production and followed by its decrease are not far off. The results of exploration in the Sakhalin licensing areas (3, 4, 5, 6 tenders) conducted during 2004-2007 show that there isn't reason to hope on the renewal of reserves sufficient for production maintaining after production falling being forecasted in the future. This problem can be solved only by the combined efforts of all the interested parties: the Russian Federation, its near-sea subdivisions, investors, users of subsurface resources

On the Russian Arctic shelf eight fields discovered during 1983-1999 are in the undistributed fund. Their total gas reserves are 2.7 trillion m3 including 565 billion m3 of C1 cat. The reserves of these fields must be reestimated in accordance with the new classification categories; five fields, the most large of them, fall into the objects of the Federal level having strategic significance. Therefore it is necessary to determine the validity and reliability of initial estimation of these fields and also the possible results of their reestimation.

The distribution of 894 largest oil, gas and condensate fields discovered in 106 world oil-gas basins (OGB) is shown on the planetary profile continent-ocean. Their recoverable reserves are more than 60 million t o.e. Four categories of the OGB are established: profile continental part - 38 midland OGB, profile oceanic part - 16 margin-oceanic OGB, profile central part - 28 intercontinental OGB and 24 margin-continental OGB. The distribution of the largest fields by these categories has essentially uneven but quite regular character. The peculiarities of such distribution are proposed to use as a static base for forecasting the largest fields in the different basins of the World and Russia.
Key words: largest fields; classes of field size and phase types of fields; monophase and heterophase fields, continent; ocean; oil-gas basins - midland, intercontinental, margin-continental, margin-oceanic; phase types of basins.

pdf  Differentiation of Russian marine peripheralson the basis of hydrocarbon resources development conditions
Russian Marine Peripheral is significant, but stall a somewhat little engaged part of fuel and energy complex. At the same time it is a great hydrocarbon potential of 14 seas surrounding its territory and the Arctic and Pacific Oceans offshore. The potential differentiation by emphasizing components, areas and facilities for priority development is required to ensure the efficient development. First of all, it means the differentiation by development conditions and distinguishing of six resources categories. Secondly it is the target score indicating priority of marine potential research and development trends: the largest fields, liquid hydrocarbons, oil and gas accumulation zones, coastal transit shallow waters, cross-border offshore, coastal marine oil and gas production centers. And finally it requires offshore areas and priority facilities identification where priority trends indicated by the target score can be implemented most successfully.
Key words: hydrocarbons, resource potential, transit zone, margin of the continent, continental shelf, profitability of development.

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.
