The new episodes of basins evolution are shown based on the new reprocessing data and results of the onshore field activities. Rifting in the Barents Sea took place in the Late Devonian time; for the North Kara basin rifting took place in the Early Ordovician time. The north part of the Kara Sea was uplifted from Carboniferous time based on the apatite fission track analysis. The North Kara basin and Taimyr Peninsula were sedimentary sources for the Carboniferous deposits on the Novaya Zemlya archipelago based on the results of detrital zircons ages. The Middle – Upper Carboniferous sediments of the north part of the Barents Sea are mostly clastic
