pdf Integrated use of satellite imagery and geophysical data In forecast studies for oil and gas (western part of Bukharo-Khiva region)
The article highlights the results of studies on the refinement of the regional structural plan and the search for local structural petroleum traps in the western part of the Bukhara-Khiva region. The features of the placement of search objects and the nature of their expression on satellite imagery data are considered. Objects of very different quality were analyzed: known structures (removed from drilling, prepared and identified), objects identified by seismic surveys. The structures and faults established by the interpretation determined the nature of the distribution of sedimentation-accumulation, the latest faults caused the formation of fracture zones, which improved the reservoir properties of the rocks. A comprehensive analysis of geological and geophysical data and structural interpretation made it possible to establish the relationship and interdependence of tectonic elements, to identify patterns in its structure and distribution of elements of oil and gas exploration interest. The main purpose of the research is to identify the criteria for regional and local structures bearing the productive petroleum levels of the sedimentary cover.

Keywords: satellite imagery data, geological and geophysical data, structural hydrocarbon trap, productive hydrocarbon level, western part of the Bukhara-Khiva region.

pdf Petroleum prospects in the sedimentary strata of the Khorezm monocline and surrounding territories according to the geological, geophysical and cosmo-geological investigations data
The article discusses the features of the geological structure, the identification of petroleum bearing promising zones and the scientific substantiation of the optimal areas of prospecting and exploration for the Khorezm monocline and adjacent territories through a comprehensive analysis of cosmo-geological study and geological and geophysical data. A comprehensive interpretation made it possible to minimize the existing multivariance in solving certain problems related to the tectonic features of the study area, determining possible zones of oil and gas accumulation, identifying fracture zones, predicting structural traps of the sedimentary cover for setting prospecting seismic surveys in a poorly studied, but potentially petroleum bearing promising territory of Uzbekistan.

Keywords: trap forecasting, petroleum bearing promising zone, cosmo-geological study, geological and geophysical data, Khorezm monocline, Uzbekistan.

pdf Petroleum potential of the Birgutlin trough - Bukhara-Khiva region (Uzbekistan)
This article is devoted to assessing the petroleum prospects of the Birgutlin trough. The studies are based on historical data, as well as actual data obtained from the fields of the western part of the Bukhara-Khiva region. When assessing the prospects of the Birgutlin trough in terms of oil and gas, the author took into account the tectonic position of the territory, as well as oil and gas content. A comparative analysis of the Birgutlin trough with adjacent tectonic elements of the Bukhara-Khiva region has been carried out. When searching for petroleum accumulations in this area, it is recommended to take the Tumaris field as a benchmark. Based on the results of the analysis of seismic data, the author identified top-priority targets for petroleum exploratory drilling, calculated the promising resources of the allocated areas. As a result of a detailed analysis of geological and geophysical data, the author gave recommendations on the study of the Birgutlin trough by prospecting and detailed seismic surveys, as well as conducting petroleum exploratory drilling in two areas, paying special attention to a detailed study of the XV-1, XV-2, XVa levels.

Keywords: petroleum field, petroleum potential, tectonic element, petroleum exploratory drilling, Birgutlin trough, Bukhara-Khiva region, Uzbekistan.

pdf Distribution of density of gas reserves and formation pressure gradients in fields of the western part of the Bukharo-Khiva region (Uzbekistan)
This article is devoted to the study of the distribution of the density of gas reserves, taking into account reservoir pressure gradients. The studies are based on scientific and theoretical views, as well as on actual data obtained from the fields of the western part of the Bukhara-Khiva region. Information is provided on the features of the lithological and stratigraphic structure, geotectonic position, productive levels and oil and gas content of the studied area. One of the key points of this study is that when selecting the composition and density of the drilling fluid, it is necessary to take into account, first of all, the reservoir pressure gradient. The author calculated the reserves density of the fields and analyzed the change in reservoir pressure gradients of productive levels in the contour of individual tectonic elements and separately for several accumulations. Based on the results of the research, the author gives specific recommendations for the localization and conduct of geological exploration within certain areas of tectonic elements in the western part of the Bukhara-Khiva region.

Keywords: gas field, tectonic elements, reservoir pressure gradient, density of gas reserves, Bukhara-Khiva region, Uzbekistan.

pdf On the question of oil and gas perspectives in the central part of the Zarafshan Depression
The article discusses the features of the geological and tectonic structure of the Zarafshan Depression, characterized by a pronounced block structure, wide development of regional faults and intersecting smaller transverse diagonal faults. In the structural section, two main tectonic elements are distinguished: Paleozoic and Mesozoic-Cenozoic structural levels. The Paleozoic structural stage is represented by intensively dislocated metamorphic sedimentary, intrusive and effusive rocks of a wide age range. The Mesozoic-Cenozoic structural stage includes weakly dislocated marine and strata of the Jurassic, Cretaceous, Paleogene, Neogene and Anthropogene.
The main direction of further study of the prospects for oil and gas potential should be the determination of the configuration and nature of the systems of faults in the sedimentary cover to identify the migration paths of hydrocarbons and near-fault zones as an area of possible petroleum accumulation.

Keywords: Paleozoic, Mesozoic-Cenozoic, petroleum perspectives, block structure, fault, hydrocarbon migration, Zarafshan Depression.

pdf Structure genesis and petroleum productivity of Jurassic terrigen formation - Kandym regional uplift (Uzbekistan)
The results of paleotectonic reconstructions of oil and gas traps in the northwest of the Chardzhou uplift are examined. It has been established that the perspective of the terrigenous Jurassic formation in this region is connected with the history of tectonic development. On the basis of new geological and geophysical data on the terrigenous formation structure, as well as the results of paleotectonic reconstructions of the territory of the Kandym regional uplift, the accumulation time of hydrocarbons has been determined.
The established developing of the oil and gas structures on the time of their formation make possible a significantly increase of the efficiency of petroleum prospecting activity by reducing of a number of unproductive wells quantity drilled on risky structures, and also permitting important adjustments in the direction of further exploration in the Kandym regional uplift.

Keywords: paleotectonic reconstruction, oil and gas accumulation, terrigenous Jurassic formation, Kandym regional uplift, Uzbekistan.
