EXECUTIVE SUMMARY


Japan National Oil Company (JNOC) jointly with Geology Institute of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (GIA) intended to initiate the Basin Modeling Study in order to reevaluate the hydrocarbon potential of the region by using our own simulation software called as SIGMA-2D. This internal report is aimed at reviewing the hydrocarbon potential in the South Caspian Basin anf giving the future perspectives in this region. This study mainly covers the following subjects:


Japan National Oil Company (JNOC) jointly with Geology Institute of Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences (GIA) intended to initiate the Basin Modeling Study in order to reevaluate the hydrocarbon potential of the region by using our own simulation software called as SIGMA-2D. This internal report is aimed at reviewing the hydrocarbon potential in the South Caspian Basin anf giving the future perspectives in this region. This study mainly covers the following subjects:


The present report includes Regional Geology, Seismic Interpretation, Basin Modeling by SIGMA-2D, Input Parameters for SIGMA-2D as well as Basin Modeling Results: Burial History, Formation Temperature Calibration and Prediction, Pore Pressure Calibartion and Prediction, Source Rock Maturity Modeling, Hydrocarbon Generation Modeling, Hydrocarbon Migration and Accumulation Modeling.
