Investigation of structural plans ratios in Lower Carboniferous and Upper Devonian prospects

Authors: A.Ya. Suleimanov (TatNIPIneft, RF, Bugulma)

Key words: geologic survey, stratal surface, geostatistical modeling, prospect, drilling.

More than 75% of total oil resources of the Republic of Tatarstan are associated with the South-Tatarian Arch. Geologic survey of the territory is still relevant in these days, inasmuch deposit geology is determined by pronounced lithofacies changes. Geostatistical modeling is an efficient tool to simulate geoenvironment variations and to improve the performance of exploration.
