Vizhomlyanskoye gas deposit was detected in Predkarpatsky yield with two planned wells (No 1 and No 2) within the limits of the debris cone of coarse-grained material from a paleoriver to the sea basin identified by seismic works.
The gas reserves and the assumed deposit boundaries were calculated and approved.
Geochemical survey did not confirm the presence of an integral deposit.
Further drilling at the deposit detected lens-shaped disposition of collector materials, fully confirming the geochemical survey data (see next slide).

Comparison of Geochemical Survey Data with Further Drilling Data
Complex geochemical anomalies are mainly assigned to the maximum values of seismic waves transit time between B3 and A reflectors (Jurassic sediments), which is the evidence that oil deposits are associated with fringe zones of rocks-collectors of Jurassic sediments.

Forecast based on seismic data
- Yu1-1 bed oil deposit outline
- suspected structure-type traps
- expected oil-drainage boundary of Yu1-1 bed
- expected increase in the oil productive area of Yu1-1 bed according to seismic data
- complex geochemical anomalies
