Abstract

An integrated sedimentological study of the Vasyugan Horizon in the Aleksandrovskoe arch area was performed, during which its depositional environments were reconstructed and a series of paleogeographic maps was plotted. It has been established that shallow-marine, marginal-marine, transitional, and continental depositional environments existed here at various stages. Most of the arch area is characterized by sections of the transitional Naunak–Vasyugan and Vasyugan–Naunak types; the westernmost part, by sections of the Vasyugan type, and the easternmost part, by sections of the Naunak type. The sand beds of the J1 horizon are low-quality reservoirs, whereas those on the western slope and the northern pericline of the Aleksandrovskoe arch are of better quality.
