Features of structural conditions of occurrence, gas accumulation, lithofacies, petrophysical and geochemical parameters, shielding factor, character-bearing shale gas saturation are fundamentally different from traditional gas deposits. Stratigraphic shale formation considered as a potential gas deposit. Considering this specificity its allocation and mapping must be executed at an early stage. To delineate gas bearing shale formations of Volyno-Podillia and allocation the most perspective

As the completion of regional stage must be drilling of vertical parametric pilot wells with solid coring from perspective shale strata, laboratory studies of organic matter, of katagenesis, lithofacies and mineralogical composition of shales, their petrophysical and geochemical properties, modeling and testing perspective shale strata using multistage hydrogaps. Prospects of further exploration and it's complex based on the results geologic-economic evaluation of perspective of petrogas of the region and obtaining results of works start-up phase.
