Jurassic terrigenous deposits of the Buchara-Khiva region – a reserve of exploration in oil and gas 

T.Kh. Shoimurotov, Sh.A. Umarov, I.N. Khakimzyanov, Sh.O. Gafurov


The article discusses the geological and geophysical prerequisites for the oil and gas potential of the Jurassic terrigenous deposits of the Bukhara-Khiva oil and gas region. Lithological and stratigraphic subdivision of terrigenous formation deposits, facies conditions of sedimentation along the section and space, as well as the nature of the distribution of capacities and the placement of productive horizons. Zones of development of channel sand deposits with good reservoir properties were found, and areas were identified where the presence of traps associated with anticlinal structures, as well as the wedging out of individual horizons with sand bars , was identified .
Based on the analysis and generalization of the results of geological-geophysical, lithofacies and hydrogeological studies within the study area, areas were identified that are most characteristic in terms of hydrocarbon accumulation in various traps associated with tectonic and lithological screens - favorable zones for the accumulation and preservation of hydrocarbons -deposits.
In conclusion, the relevant conclusions are given with an assessment of the prospects for the oil and gas potential of the Jurassic terrigenous deposits of the study area and specific recommendations are given for further prospecting and exploration.
