Oil and gas potential of Bering Sea's Khatyrsk sedimentary basin
Gretskaya E.V., Petrovskaya N.A. (JSC Dalmorneftegeophysica)
New CMP seismic data produced in 2007 helped to delineate structure of the Khatyrsk sedimentary basin and locate the basic tectonic structures in the area, which are seen as prospective hydrocarbon accumulations.
East Sakhalin offshore: a new concept for hydrocarbon reservoir emergence
Raznitsin Y.N. (Gelogical Institute RAS)
Many years of research into East Sakhalin and adjacent offshore area tectonics, as well as information on local geology and seismic data produced over the past 20 years showed structural and genetic relations between tectonic formation of ophiolite allochtones in eastern Sakhalin and the adjacent Deryugin trough, which was the key driver for oil and gas in the island’s offshore area. This paper summarises these studies.
Geodynamic risks attributable to oil and gas development in Kamchatka offshore
Ivshina E.V. (Gazprom VNIIGAZ)
This paper analyses the seismic environment and tectonic conditions typical of oil and gas development in Kamchatka Peninsula – the boundary area of three geological platforms – North American, Pacific, and Okhotsk. Specific aspects of regional geodynamic risks are assessed, along with their implications for oil and gas investment projects, both present and in future.
Chayandinskoye field: on the way to commercial development
Lyugai D.V. (Gazprom VNIIGAZ)
