Transcript tion of our oil deposits, has hardly been broached in this country, while the figures I gave are essentially tentative in character. Thus, in the Maikop region, the oil supplies were tentatively estimated at 25 million tons. Assuming that the gas factor in the exploitation of the oil deposits will remain at an average of 20 per cent, we get an equivalent of about 5 million tons of gas, 1,000 cubic metres of gas being approximately equivalent to 1 ton of oil. The Baku oil deposits, if we accept the estimate of resources made by Prof. Golubyatnikov, should therefore contain in the neighbourhood of 180 million tons of gas. There is no possible way of estimating the gas held underground in the gaseous deposits of the U.S.S.R. as so far they have been neither investigated nor operated. At the present time, after enumerating these gas regions and stating that they contain large quantities of gas, we have exhausted our learning on the subject. Such gas-bearing regions, apart from the oil-bearing regions, exist in the south of the European part of the U.S.S.R.: the districts of Melitopol, Kerch, and Taman; the northwestern portion of the Caucasus where mud-bubbles are located; the districts of Sochi, Daghestan, and the whole southeastern part of the Caucasus which is the classical mud-bubble region. Prominent in Trans-Caspia is the Chikishlyar gas region, while Central Asia also boasts of several gas regions, of which the gaseous nitrogen springs of Tyang- Shang are particularly interesting. The Dergachevsky gas tracts in the southeast of the European part of the Union in the Novo-Uzensky district have been known for a long time, and lately the Novo-Kazan gasiferous regions situated between the lower branches of the Volga and Ural Rivers has come into prominence. Mention should also be made of the Ukhta gases. The gases of the Dergachevsky and Ukhta regions contain a certain admixture of precious gases, including helium. 45
