The article briefly reviews geological structure and hydrocarbon presence features of Bukharo-Khiva region. The most appropriate conditions for different trap types’ formation and therefore hydrocarbon accumulations were defined on the basis of the available geological and geophysical data. Different types of discovered accumulations were identified and classified into 3 categories which are in turn divided into 8 types. The most widespread are only 3 of them and the article reviews their localization features and comprises the corresponding typical oil and gas fields’ examples.

As Bukharo-Khiva region is currently well explored, it is appropriate to suppose that all major existing anticline traps are discovered and further regions’ prospects can be related to their non-anticline types (fault, pinch-out, unconformity, etc.). The article contains the analysis of their most probable types which can potentially be further discovered and are identified to date within hydrocarbons accumulation of separate discovered fields.

It’s obvious that identification of different hydrocarbon accumulations’ types requires different strategies of geological exploration. The article also provides with the proposals of the optimal sets of further exploration works on the basis of the achieved results, taking into account the most probable types of potential oil and gas accumulations.
