The South-West Gissar region is one of the five oil and gas regions of the Republic of Uzbekistan, with proven industrial production for oil and gas belonging to the carbonate sections of the Middle Upper Jurassic. The article provides a general overview of this region, the history of geological and geophysical knowledge, lithological and stratigraphical characteristics, tectonic structure and petroleum potential. The stratigraphic and tectonic habitat of petroleum accumulations and their phase composition are presented. The history of the petroleum development of the region is considered, the results of exploration activity, including those conducted by investors, the number of open petroleum accumulations, their ranking by fluid types, and the degree of development are presented. Priority stratigraphic structures of rocks and territories for further geological exploration activity were identified. The region’s oil and gas prospects are justified by the presence of promising traps, as well as promising and forecasted hydrocarbon resources. The forecast hydrocarbon resources for several stratigraphic levels are presented: Lower-Middle Jurassic and Middle-Upper Jurassic, which indicates the feasibility of further exploration activity for oil and gas in the South-West Gissar region of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

pdf Current state and development prospects of exploration activity for oil and gas in the Ustyurt region (Uzbekistan)
The Ustyurt region is one of the main oil and gas bearing regions in Uzbekistan. The article provides a general overview of this region, the history of geological and geophysical knowledge, lithologic and stratigraphic characteristics of several sections, tectonic structure, and oil and gas content. The stratigraphic and tectonic confinement of petroleum accumulations and their phase composition is presented. The history of the petroleum activity development of the region is considered, the results of geological exploration, including those carried out by investors, the number of discovered accumulations, their ranking by type of fluids, and their degree of development are presented. Priority stratigraphic rocks sequences and areas for further exploration have been identified. The oil and gas prospects of the region are justified by the low development of the initial total recoverable resources and the presence of a significant pool of prospective traps. Predicted hydrocarbon resources are presented for several stratigraphic sections: Upper Jurassic, Middle Jurassic, Lower Jurassic and Paleozoic, which indicates a high hydrocarbon potential and feasibility of further exploration for oil and gas in the Ustyurt region of Uzbekistan.

Keywords: exploration activity, oil and gas field, petroleum potential, Jurassic, Paleozoic, Ustyurt region, Uzbekistan.

This article gives the detailed characteristics of Lower Permian section which was drilled by exploration Satbay-1 well. Based on the complex analysis of geological and geophysical data related to the drilled wells within the limits of the Shordja uplift authors identified a lot of petrogenetical, mineralogical - petrographical features and geochemical composition of the studied section.

Keywords: petrogenetical structure, mineralogical and geochemical composition, Lower Permian, Southern Ustyurt.
