Understanding the geological evolution of Sakhalin and the Sea of Okhotsk as a whole is the key to unravelling the hydrocarbon potential of the region. Sedimentological and tectonic studies of Sakhalin provide detailed information on the relative importance of sediment supply, tectonic activity, eustasy, ocean circulation and palaeoclimate and their controls on the generation of hydrocarbon systems. Limited biostratigraphic constraints make regional correlation difficult.
