Transcript as ascertained by the Commission which worked under my chairmanship in May of last year at Grozny, are put at not less than 60 million tons. The layers of the productive Chokrak oilfield, lying below the 22nd layer, were not taken into account; neither were the possible supplies of other Grozny oilfields. The discovery of oil in the Benoisky region (see below) should cause us to revise our attitude towards the whole of the Grozny region. Prospecting must be pushed here to the utmost if we are to carry out our programme not only of the first, but also the second Pyatiletka. I regret that the lack of data does not permit me to classify the Grozny oil resources according to grades. The oil resources of the Maikop region I have so far estimated at 25 million tons. No attempts were made either by myself or other investigators to estimate the supplies of the Khadyzhinsky region. No definite figure can be given concerning the supplies of the rest of the Kuban oil fields. However, going by intuition, one may speak of reserves of about 25 million tons; the same can be said also about Daghestan. Thus, the total supplies of North Caucasus, exclusive of the Maikop deposits, may be estimated at about 70-75 million tons. These figures, however, still require verification by prospecting. It is equally impossible to give a precise estimate of the supplies of the Ural-Emba region. Let us try to approach the solution of this question in the following manner: The supplies of the "Dossor" oilfield under operation are estimated at about 5 million tons. In the Ural-Emba region about 100 dome-like mounds bearing evidence of oil were discovered; let us assume that one-half of them will prove productive to the same extent as Dossor. In that event the total oil supplies of this district would equal 37
