West Siberian Basin
The West Siberian Basin accounts for over 65% of oil production and ~90% of gas production in Russia, yet large parts of the basin are under explored. This basin formed as a rift basin in the late Permian-early Triassic between the East European and Siberian cratons. The irregular nature of the basement resulted in focused sediment deposition during syn-rift and early post-rift phases. Many fundamental questions remain about aspects of the basin evolution and of reservoir formation, distribution and quality. Exposures of Mesozoic strata occur around the basin allowing sedimentological and structural field investigations and enabling sample collection for laboratory analysis.
