EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


This report performed in 1996 by GIA and Earth Sciences and Resources Institute, University of Utah (USA) consists of 3 volumes and dedicated to study of characterization and structural features of the Productive Series (Lower Pliocene) - basic reservoir of the South Caspian basin.


The study area consists of three main structural zones to which the oil and gas fields and unproven anticlinal structures are confined: the Lower Kura depression, the Shemakha-Gobustan trough and the Baku Archipelago.


The first volume includes the results of regional studies of structural features and stratigraphy of the Productive Series. These studies include the geophysics, velocity and seismic interpretation, seismic-wireline log correlation, sedimentology and subsurface correlation of outcrop sections, thin section description, paleomagnetic results on outcrop sectios.


The second volume deals with reservoir correlation and properties of the Productive Series. There are te results of such studies as analyses of petrographic and mineralogic properties of the rocks of V-VIII horizon (by Karadag nomenclature), factors, controlling small-scale reservoir quality, study of binary images of thin sections, binary mosaic images and radial power spectra, incremental and Cummulative Mercury Injection curves.


The third volume includes the description of the structure, summary of oil and gas production, petrographic descriptions of individual fields the studied region. Altogether there is a description of 31 onshore and offshore fields.


The report includes numerous tables, images and graphics.
