The report discusses issues related to the assessment of the resource base and the development potential of the Arctic zone of the Siberian platform along the Northern sea route, the region of Russia with a high concentration of oil and gas resources. The basic concepts on the geological structure and the oil and gas potential of the Arctic zone of the Siberian platform are based on seismic data tied to existing deep exploratory wells. To date, five petroliferous complexes have been described in the Yenissei-Khatanga (the Yenisei Bay, the Yenisei-Khatanga regional trough) Anabar-Khatanga (Anabar-Khatanga saddle, Khatanga bay) Anabar-Lena oil and gas regions (Anabar-Lena trough and adjacent shallow shelf of the Laptev Sea) and the South Laptev sea promising oil and gas region for the main oil and gas complexes: Riphean, Vendian, Vendian-Middle Paleozoic, Upper Paleozoic and Mesozoic. The report considers the results of the analysis of estimates of the filtration-capacitive properties of the sedimentary cover rocks in the marginal zones of the north of the Siberian platform available on 01/01/2019. Open fields are briefly described. The obtained results allow for the adjustment of state programs for the development of the Arctic zone of the Siberian Platform (Yenisei-Khatanga, Anabar-Khatanga and Anabar-Lena oil and gas regions, South-Laptev Sea promising oil and gas region).

The report is prepared based on the results of the work carried out within the framework of the Program of the State Academies of Sciences for 2013-2020. Section 9 "Earth Sciences"; directions of fundamental research: 131. "Geology of hydrocarbon fields, fundamental problems of geology and geochemistry of oil and gas, scientific foundations for the formation of a raw materials base for traditional and non-traditional sources of hydrocarbon raw materials" and 132. "Integrated development and conservation of the Earth's interior, innovative development of mineral fields and deep processing of mineral raw materials", within the framework of the projects "The Fundamental Basis of Innovative Technologies in the Oil and Gas Industry", No. AAAA A16-116031750016-3.
