RESULTS OF INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH-TO-PRACTICE CONFERENCE «HYDROCARBON AND MINERAL RESOURCE POTENTIAL OF CRYSTALLINE BASEMENT» AND STEPS TO SPEED UP USING THIS POTENTIAL
The paper analyzes the results of the international research-to-practice conference, reviews the best practices of search, exploration and development of hydrocarbon reserves found in the Earth’s crystalline basement. The problems concerning the origin and synthesis of hydrocarbons, forming and re-forming of oil and gas fields, hydrocarbons’ deep inflow, and the effect of these processes on the development of fields in the sedimentary mantle have been considered. Innovative approaches to development of hydrocarbon reserves considering for the processes of continued degassing of the Earth and replenishment of mature fields with hydrocarbons have been shown. Practical steps to use hydrocarbon fields’ reforming processes have been indicated. First-priority tasks have been defined to solve E&P problems bearing in mind a close connection between the processes of production of reserves and degassing of Earth and contribution of the crystalline basement to development of fields in the sedimentary mantle.
origin and synthesis of hydrocarbons, forming and re-forming of oil and gas fields, degassing of Earth, criteria for search, exploration and development of fields in crystalline basement, role of crystalline basement in forming and re-forming of oil and gas fields in sedimentary mantle, innovative development approach, conceptually new geologic models.
