Drilling of parametric Subbotina-403 well in the Ukrainian sector of Kerch shelf of the Black Sea conducted in 2004-2006 was marked by the first oil gusher within water areas of Ukraine. Kerch-Taman (Pivdennokerchenskyy) flexure with zones of anticline folds of northeast strike after preliminary assessment of resources in 2004 was enriched with a new oil field Subbotina and deserves a modern assessment of the prospects of oil and gas. On this basis reasonable priorities of geological and geophysical exploration are substantiated.
