    Abstract

    Currently, Bazhenov Formation that contains large amounts of organic matter attracts high interest of oil companies. However, often the organic substance is at an early stage of katagenesis, drilled wells are dry. In this paper we show the results of laboratory experiments on the implementation of kerogen generation capacity and synthesis of oil. It is found that in a closed system in the presence of water at elevated temperatures and formation pressure oil could be produced, the composition of which will vary depending on the stage of katagenesis, temperature and duration of the experiment. This generation potential can be realized almost completely with about 35% of oil in products. Development of the technology for the hydrocracking in the formation can significantly increase the production of all wells, implementing oil factory in situ and producing the necessary products.
