The article examines the current state of hydrogeochemical zoning of Mesozoic deposits of the Bukhara-Khiva oil and gas region. Groundwater plays an important role in the formation and preservation of oil and gas deposits; under certain conditions, they can contribute to their accumulation or destruction; therefore, the purpose of the study is to establish the role of groundwater in the formation and placement of hydrocarbons in the Mesozoic water system of the Bukhara-Khiva region. The work used an integrated approach to solving problems, including scientific generalizations of factual data in the context of Jurassic and Cretaceous deposits of the study area with the use of materials characterizing the hydrogeochemical parameters of formation waters.
From a general geological point of view, consideration of the hydrogeological features of groundwater, the unity of the dynamics and chemistry of formation fluids are an important oil exploration criterion and deserves attention when choosing a rational direction for geological exploration. Based on the hydrogeological analysis of the Jurassic and Cretaceous deposits of the BKHNGR, the hydrogeochemical zones and the location of individual promising areas with respect to oil and gas potential were clarified. The discovery of such local areas of the study area significantly expands the range of search objects, which in the future will improve the efficiency of prospecting and exploration work. Conclusions are presented with an assessment of the oil and gas potential of the study area based on hydrogeochemical criteria. The hydrogeochemical studies proposed in the work have an undeniable advantage, since the hydrogeological aspect under consideration is based on the analysis of data from previous structural-tectonic, lithological-facial, geochemical, geophysical studies and acts as the final generalizing result.
