This article presents explanations, clarifications and proposals for hydrocarbon reserves calculation and project-technological document submission to the state examination by subsoil user, based on the use of modern reserves calculation methods, using 3D geological models, technical solutions and field development technologies, taking into account the current legislation requirements, its development and the subsoil user and the State action convergence for the deposit development. All proposed amendments and clarifications to the “Methodical recommendations for the use of Oil and Fuel Gas Reserves and Resources Classification” are based on the State Commission on Mineral Reserves expert experience in the state expertise in 2016–2017 years, as well as proposals received from subsoil users and are aimed at a more reliable geological hydrocarbons reserves calculation, hydrocarbon recovery factor and recoverable reserves calculation, presented in the project-technological document for the field development.
