Fata morgana of biogenic doctrine of hydrocarbons in the Black sea

© O.M. Rusakov, R.I. Kutas, 2014

During past three years eleven explorations wells have been drilled in the Turkish, Bulgarian, and Rumanian exclusive economic zones of the Black sea on the shelf, within transition zone and deep-water hollow, ten of which have been considered as non-prospective. To estimate a hydrocarbon potential of Domino-1 well (Romania) it should be necessary to spend several billion of US dollars during 5-6 years. It has been shown that low efficiency of exploration for oil and gas with modern apparatus and software program is due to consequence of adherence to scientific doctrine of biogenic methane tenets. Areas of intensive gas seeps are recommended for gas of deep origin prospecting.

Key words: Black sea, mobile drilling platforms and vessels, hydrocarbons.
