Abstract

A study of the regularities of oil and gas distribution in a number of regions of the USSR and throughout the world shows that processes of oil and gas formation are characterized by a certain cyclicity. Cycles are grouped in larger megacycles united by a single stage of tectogenesis, during which similar climatic conditions and a specific composition of the organic material existed in the oil and gas generation basin. Development of megacycles and cycles is connected with a certain space, viz. large segments of the earth's crust (megacycles), petroliferous basins, provinces and regions (cycles), within which oil and gas-bearing formations are widespread. Factors determining the development of megacycles and cycles of oil and gas formation are considered and a number of comparative diagrams are presented.
