Growth in the Asian economies makes hydrocarbon accumulations in Siberia increasingly attractive. The Siberian Platform consists of Proterozoic and Phanerozoic strata that overlie the Archaean basement of the Siberian Craton. Although oil and gas are produced from these strata locally, vast areas are exploration frontiers. The unusual nature of the petroleum systems are also a challenge. Some source rocks are as old as the Precambrian, with protracted histories of generation and migration into subtle traps. These traps have been affected by polyphase deformation, but in such gentle increments that the nature and effects are not clearly understood.
