The Journal publishes original research works on the prospecting, exploration and development of the mineral resource base of hydrocarbons and solid minerals. The journal discusses topical issues of subsoil use, state and development prospects of oil and gas and mining industries, including their technical and technological equipment.  Much attention is paid to the advanced research methods and their application in geology of oil fields, the study of reservoirs.
