The paper briefly reviews the results of petroleum exploration activities in Uzbekistan. Data is given on the number of oil and gas fields discovered during the whole exploration period, which were classified by the type of fluid and petroleum regions. The paper presents geologic exploration forecast and expected results for the period of 2017-2021, as well as its actual execution and the results obtained for the period of 2017-2018 and 7 months of 2019. The most promising areas have been identified for oil and gas prospecting. The authors emphasize the essential role of research in exploration survey and the results obtained. They conclude that Uzbekistan’s subsoil assets have great hydrocarbon potential and deem it expedient to continue prospecting for oil and gas.
