The main part of the hydrocarbon resources and reserves of the Russian Arctic Shelf is concentrated in the Barents (with Pechora) and Kara seas. These resources and reserves are mainly represented by gas. Only this part of the Russian Arctic Shelf is ready for development. The geological models of the vast eastern part of the shelf and subsequent quantitative assessments of hydrocarbon resources based on them are rough estimations. Some lithofacies and palaeographic maps illustrate the key stages of the Palaeozoic–Mesozoic geological evolution of the Barents–Kara sea areas.
