Purpose

Although a geologic map displays the geographic distribution of the different geologic units and rock types for numerous purposes, this data set is compiled primarily for the World Energy Project as part of a required strategic base for assessing the petroleum potential of this region. For this purpose, the map basically provides an outline of the general geographic distribution of both known or hypothetical petroleum-potential formations and units, i.e., sedimentary rocks and basins, and areas containing igneous and metamorphic rocks which have little or no potential. The map is also compiled, in part, to provide a basis for outlining the geographic and petroleum provinces. This basic geologic data set, combined with others, such as tectonic and burial histories, distribution of known oil and gas fields, distribution and quality of reservoir rocks, organic geochemistry, etc., ultimately defines the basis for the assessment of undiscovered oil and gas in the Former Soviet Union.
