An integrated study has been conducted for the area of the southern part of Barents Sea. The detailed comparison of the stratigraphic patterns of the Norwegian and Russian parts of the shelf has been performed for the entire interval from Carboniferous through Jurassic. The ages of the key tectonic events,have been verified. Investigation of core data with seismic facies analysis enabled to improve determinations of determinations depositional environments and paleogeographic reconstructions. The best reservoir quality rocks are expected to be present within the Triassic shallow marine to fluvial sediments of Snadd, Kobbe andHavert formations, as well as JurassicStŠ¾andNordmela. Among the most interesting interval of the Paleozoic sections there are siliceous spiculites of Roye formation, which may contain good reservoirs in zones above Sakmarian-Artinskian bioherms. The most obvious structural traps have been developed above the salt pillows, and additional prospects may be present at the flank zones of salt diapirs
