The article presents a brief overview of the development of the oil and gas potential of the Bukharo-Khiva region over the entire period of exploration for oil and gas, information on the state and growth of reserves, annual and cumulative production of hydrocarbons. The Bukhara-Khiva oil and gas region is the leader in the Republic of Uzbekistan in terms of the number of discovered fields, initial reserves, indicators of annual and cumulative hydrocarbon production. One of the most striking factors influencing this state of affairs is the fact that 4 unique hydrocarbon deposits have been discovered in the region. Currently, within the Bukhara-Khiva region 514 oil and gas deposits have been identified, which are concentrated in 203 hydrocarbon deposits in the stratigraphic range from the Lower-Middle Jurassic to the Upper Cretaceous inclusive, the predominant amount of which contains free gas. The main stratigraphic range of the region containing hydrocarbon reserves is the Middle-Upper Jurassic carbonate deposits, which account for up to 82.4% of the initial reserves and 78.5% of the cumulative production of the region. The authors noted that the depletion of the main, unique deposits of the region is at a fairly high level, however, these deposits still provide more than a third of the annual production of the Bukhara-Khiva region. It also indicates a significant share in the structure of the raw material base of large deposits. Based on the results of the analysis, it was determined that, in aggregate, for unique and large deposits, the share of initial reserves is 82.7%, annual production – 81.7%, cumulative production – 92.1% of the total for the region.
