Transcript The Baku region resources were twice surveyed by Prof. D. V. Golubyatnikov, in 1922 and in 1924. The 1924 estimates were made by the bulk method, taking into consideration the extent of the oil layers, their capacity, coefficient of porosity, saturation, and yield. Consequently, they were based upon some actual material facts. Their faults are inherent in the method employed. He estimated the total oil deposits in the old fields (Lenin region, Surakhan, Bibi-Eibat, Binagada, Artem Island, Atashkya (Shubana), Gekmala-Hurdalan, Balajara) at 504.4 million tons. Moreover, there are new regions whose geological structure and outward indications point to favourable oil prospects, but where the degree of saturation of the oil layers has not yet been ascertained. Prof. Golubyatnikov has estimated the resources of the latter at 402.6 million tons, making a total of 907 million tons. During the 7 or 8 years which have elapsed since this estimate was made, great changes have occurred. The Kala region, estimated by Prof. Golubyatnikov at 277 million, has been prospected and has given negative results. To offset this, the new Kara-Chkhur area has made its appearance, forming a southward continuation of Surakhan field. The "Ilyich" (Bukhta) oilfield has nearly doubled in size and been augmented by the new Putinskaya area. Prospecting in the Kyorgez region gave positive results. The productivity of a number of newly prospected oil regions has been more definitely ascertained, and this allows us to assume that the Kala miscalculations have been fully compensated and that Prof. Golubyatnikov's estimates are perhaps not far from the truth. At any rate, they ought to be recognised as important from the point of view of orientation. In recent years, V. V. Bilibin, one of our leading specialists in this domain, made some estimates of the Baku oilfields. He put the resources of the old areas on October 3* 35
