Lately, exploration experiments on the oil fields and research of the isolated core from deposits of the Bazhenov formation allowed receiving new information about reservoirs of these strata. On the example of a several fields, located in the Latitudinal Ob’ area in Western Siberia, it was given common regularities of the Bazhenov formation and variability of the reservoirs.

The experience of researching show the impossibility of using extrapolating conceptions for effective geological modeling. It is necessary to research core for understanding of lithology, cut structure, reservoir properties, difference between reservoirs and source rocks for creation geological model of high quality. It must help to formulate the task for seismic interpretation. Based on difference between reservoirs and source rocks we can make 2D seismic-geological modelling to check whether the available seismic methods can feel changes in reservoir properties of the Bazhenov formation. So we can select the most effective method of seismic interpretation.

Quality of seismic interpretation technologies in inter-well space of the Bazhenov formation depends on controlling of factors which influence on productivity of the strata. Among these factors are: lithology, secondary transformations of rocks, tectonic, structural and other. Above all on the seismic interpretation quality depends on seismic data quality: it is necessary to keep amplitude-frequency parameters of the reflecting horizon B.

Three-dimensional geological modeling can help to make integration in united model of all geological and geophysical information of the studied oil field. This is the most important for the highly changeable deposits of the Bazhenov formation. In the presentation examples of various examples of seismic-geological modelling, different types of seismic technology interpretation and three-dimensional geological modeling are given.
