In the southeast of Western Siberia, the most studied are the Upper Jurassic deposits, most of the oil and gas fields being confined to them. However, the probability of discovering new hydrocarbon deposits in the Upper Jurassic horizons is extremely small. Therefore, of great importance is finding new hydrocarbon deposits in less studied deep-lying complexes.

The article considers the development of a criterion for determining the saturation type of the terrigenous reservoirs in the Hettangian-Aalenian deposits in the southeast of the West Siberian sedimentary basin. We use the example of the Ust-Tym megadepression, a large depression located in the central part of the Tomsk region. The Lower and Middle Jurassic sections are represented by the Urman and Togur formations, Salat formation (Peshkov formation is its isochronous analogue) and Tyumen formation, and characterized by the alternation of predominantly sandy (potential reservoirs) and argillaceous-carbonaceous (seals) sequences. In the studied interval, tests were carried out in just a few wells, for which reason the identification of deposits and promising objects is complicated. Determining the type of reservoir saturation will significantly improve the assessment of oil and gas potential.

As a result of interpreting lateral logging sounding data, the geoelectric parameters of the invasion zone and undisturbed formation were reconstructed for the Lower Jurassic and Aalenian deposits. Based on the well logging data interpretation by means of numerical inversion, we obtained the criterion for the saturation type of the reservoirs (Ju11-17) in the Hettangian-Aalenian complex. The boundary resistivity values for the oil-saturated reservoirs vary from 8 to 20 ohm∙m, while for the water-saturated ones they do not exceed 5 ohm∙m.
