In article describes features of formation and types of hydrocarbon deposits in weathering crust of basement
rocks of West Siberia. The mechanism of formation of oil and gas accumulations in basement rocks and favorable geological factors necessary for the formation of such deposits according described mechanism.
Materials and methods
Collection and analysis of data of scientific-research papers on problem of oil and gas potential of basement rocks.
Oil and gas potential of weathering crust of Paleozoic basement of West Siberia controlled by oil and gas perspective territory of lower (Jurassic) horizons of sedimentary cover.
Weathering crust of basement rocks is a regional collector for oil and gas of lower sedimentary rocks the vast territory of West Siberia plate.
