On the base of the comprehensive studies done to the Jurassic-Cretaceous deposits in the Yenisei- Khatanga petroleum basin, which included seismic data interpretation, as well studies on geology, geochemistry, lithology, rock physics; there were also built geological models for Jurassic and Cretaceous reservoirs, and some criteria of petroleum potential were defined. The knowledge obtained allowed to produce a probabilistic estimate for initial in-place and recoverable resources of non-associated gas, oil and condensate. Most promising areas in terms of oil and gas finds were indicated.
