Application of magnetic exploration for oil and gas reserves on the promising areas of Azerbaijan

The problems of magnetic survey for search of oil and gas deposits in Azerbaijan are discussed. Microstructures of magnetic
field observed over deposits of the Middle Kura depression have been analyzed. Correspondence of outlines of the local magnetic
minima and hydrocarbon deposits has been found. In order to justify the use of magnetic exploration in the search for hydrocarbon
deposits in Azerbaijan the features of changes in physical properties of rocks laterally and vertically in sections of Muradkhanli and
Jafarly fields have been studied in details. Analysis of the data on the magnetic properties of rocks of the "empty" and oil wells has
shown that the magnetic susceptibility of rocks above and below the hydrocarbon deposits differs dramatically from those ones of the
environments surrounding the reservoir. To clarify the features of the magnetic field on the oil and gas deposits in the Middle Kura
depression modeling on the known deposits performed.
