Influence of Late Permian – Early Triassic magmatism on petroleum potential of sedimentary basins within the Siberian Platform: an example of the Anabar-Khatanga saddle
DOI 10.31087/0016-7894-2019-2-25-38

The paper discusses the influence of basic magmatism on hydrocarbon potential of Palaeozoic deposits by the example of the Anabar-Khatanga saddle. A description of characteristics of intrusive bodies represented by the facies of the Byrranga series is presented. A model of basite magmatism development based on the dependencies between the total thickness of dolerite sills and hypsometry of the host sediment complex top, as well as between the total thickness of sills in individual lithostratigraphic units and their thickness has been developed. The authors analysed an influence of the basite magmatism on sedimentary cover structure, estimated an effect of basite magma on reservoir properties and degree of organic matter transformation in the source rocks. Development of hydrocarbon ontogeny in the Anabar-Khatanga saddle is considered in the context of geodynamic processes that occurred in the region during the course of Early and Later Cimmerian orogeny and beyond. The connection of the major events of fluids introduction into sedimentary cover with tectogenesis stages is noted; the direct and indirect negative influence of basite magmatism on ontogenesis of hydrocarbons, morphological features of the structures of the Nordvik swell and the Belogoro-Tigyansky uplift zone and, in general, on the petroleum potential of the Anabar-Khatanga saddle and similar areas are shown. Priority areas of development of oil and gas prospecting in the adjacent territories are proposed.
