Solid high-metamorphized bitumens accumulations (kerites) were discovered in the Silurian deposits in the south-east part of the East-European platform in the surrounding zone of folded Ural. It proves a possible former oil accumulation here. Analysis of geological and geochemical data is performed. A structure of carbonate shelf deposits is described. Taking into account the discover of oil fields in the Silurian deposits in the Timano-Pechora region it allows to draw a preliminary conclusion about possible role of the Silurian shelf carbonate deposits in oil and gas potential forming in this region.
