Abstract: We considered the transformations of natural hydrogeological fields, leading to the transformations affecting the composition of groundwater as well as the properties of hydrocarbons and water expelling stages of hydrogeological cycles leading to the formation of hydrocarbon deposits and infiltration stages of reformation. We described the reconstruction of the hydrogeological history, which allows determining the properties of hydrocarbons, choosing a rational way of extracting them with measures to protect mineral resources

Abstract: The most developed and widely applied in Russia geophysical methods of nuclear magnetic resonance are considered including: nuclear magnetic logging by method of free nuclear precession in the Earth's magnetic field, nuclear magnetic tomographic logging in a strong magnetic field, and NMR analysis in high magnetic field of sample cores, cuttings and fluids. It is shown that nuclear magnetic tomographic logging provides ample opportunity to assess the reservoir properties of rocks, but the interpretation of the results requires serious petrophysical settings. The problem of improving the hardware and metrology provision of the techniques used is considered.

Abstract: The deposits of the Vendian-Lower Cambrian age of oil and gas fields in Eastern Siberia are largely modified by post-sedimentation transformations. The dominant influence on reservoir properties of rocks was provided through crystallization of halite in the pore space. The article deals with methodological aspects of the selection of complicated salinization terrigenous reservoirs and determination of their reservoir properties basing on a standard set of logging data

Abstract: The results of a detailed analysis of reservoirs of a number of fields of the West Siberian petroleum province are presented. It is established that a filter system can form in the sediments with porosity and permeability generally below conditioned. The probability of oil moving from country rock into the reservoir rock is substantiated. In this regard, it is suggested to take into account the hydrocarbons saturating non-reservoir rocks when evaluating geological reserves. The question of the need to develop methods of calculation of the renewable oil and gas reserves in the modern world is considered.
