Petroleum Geology of Western Siberia

Petroleum Geology of Western Siberia

This study continues Blackbourn Geoconsulting's series on the petroleum geology of major hydrocarbon regions from around the Former Soviet Union.

It considers the tectonic and structural development of Western Siberia, before describing the geological history, palaeogeography and stratigraphy of individual basins. All maps are georeferenced and are available in ArcGIS format.

The main bulk of the report describes the individual tectonic zones within the West Siberian Basin (see right). Each of these is further subdivided into sections considering:

  • Tectonic History and Structure
  • Stratigraphy, Lithology and Depositional Environments
  • Reservoirs and Seals
  • Trap Types
  • Hydrocarbon Types

Volumes II-IV of the report comprise hard copy and non-interactive digital version of the West Siberian section of our "Former Soviet Union Database". (The fully interactive version is available to purchasers for a discounted price of US $6,000.)

The report is available now at a cost of US $32,000. For further details, please contact Dr Graham Blackbourn.
