The main provisions of the current paradigm of prospecting, exploration and production of hydrocarbons, which are based on petrophysics and seismic exploration, are considered. It is shown that within its framework it is possible to apply any new ideas about the structure of natural reservoirs, the origin and migration of hydrocarbons.

This paradigm will make it possible to move to the preparation of a qualitatively new resource base of the oil and gas complex through the discovery and development of hydrocarbon deposits in the best natural reservoirs with the best petrophysical parameters, high density of light oil and gas reserves, and high well production rates.

New highly profitable hydrocarbon deposits will be discovered in areas with developed infrastructure, mainly in well-known oil and gas provinces.
