FORMATION OF COMPLEX PRODUCTIVE SERIES DEPOSITS OF AZERBAIJAN Vahabov Ulvi Institute of Geology ANAS Deposits of Productive Series (PS) have been for a long time considered to be the main reservoir for the territory of Azerbaijan and adjacent waters of the South Caspian Basin (SCB). During this time, geological and geophysical investigations in the territory of the land of Azerbaijan and the adjacent waters of the Caspian Sea have been opened and at present (44 onshore and 27 in the Caspian Sea) 71 oil and gas fields including and others are under development. Despite the long duration of studies conducted by geologists of different specialties and areas, many questions still remain controversial Deposits of PS as previously described by many researchers deposited on a rough surface of relief both within the land area and water area of Azerbaijan part. Paleological map compiled by author proves these statements and to a large extent characterize geological setting of PrePliocene age. According to this map one can see that distribution of thicknesses both during lower and upper stages of PS in regional plan is in direct relationship on complexes of underlying deposits.

These processes occurred together with erosion and redeposition of clayey rocks which composed the areas «Caucasian land», and Absheron geoanticline .

Small Djeirankechmyaz, large Adjinaur and Kura bays were formed within the Low Kura depression. On the North Adjinaur bay is limited by Greater Caucasus, on the South by territory of modern Mingechaur water reservoir. On the South Kura bay is limited by uplifts of Lesser Caucasus and Talysh. Two small bays formed by delta of PaleoAraks and PaleoBolgarchai rivers can be found within this bay. Low Kura bay itself was formed by delta of Paleo Kura. Similar bays formed in Siyazan monocline and the adjacent waters of the Absheron archipelago. Conclusions: 1. Sedimentation processes throughout the while age of PS are characterized by a complex nature than previously thought; 2. It was proved and graphically clarified with which deposits the conformable and unconformable bedding of rocks of PS at the underlying complexes is connected; 3. Maximum thickness of deposit of productive series without dip angles is less than 6000 m. The results of conducted study will allow to correct the location for location of a more prospective wells for their drilling within the territory of Azerbaijan and the adjacent waters of the Caspian Sea and conducting of purposeful drilling.
