Detailed litho-facial, palaeontological and organic matter studies was carried out, aimed developing an optimal approach to assessing their remaining reserves potential. The features of generation, migration and conservation of hydrocarbons in the Domanik reservoir, based on bituminous analysis with preliminary separation of bitumoids into epigenetic and syngenetic, are considered. On the basis of a detailed layer-by-layer study of Domanikit from outcrops and shallow wells sections in the Ukhta area, sharp differences in the maturity range of organic matter, determined from different thin lithotypes, were revealed. An assumption is made about the significant influence of the lithotypes on the character and scale of the hydrocarbons generation. Conclusions are drawn about the significant petroleum potential of the petroleum bearing strata, in particular, the Vetlasian level, analog with Domanik Formation.
