The structural element of a prospect is not a key factor in the detection of hydrocarbon deposits within the Jurassic formations of the southern parts of the West Siberian province. We investigated a method of mapping oil-saturated zones within the Middle Jurassic reservoirs. We evaluated the quantitative criteria between oil-saturated versus water-saturated zones. The methodology was based on amplitude analysis of seismic data and information obtained from the data and well testing.
