* Reserve numbers are ultimate recoverable (all data derived from Petroconsultants, 1996).
# Timan-Pechora known recoverable reserves total 19978 mmboe, but just 58% (11609 mmboe) can be allocated to reservoir horizons with available porosity, net thickness and oil saturation information.

The three largest producing fields listed below contain 30% (5908 mmboe) of all Timan-Pechora known recoverable reserves.  They are distributed within the above-noted reservoir horizons in unknown proportions.

1    Vuktyl
2    Usa
3    Vozey
&  Middle Devonian siliciclastic volumes under-represented (Umishek, personal communication, 1998), possibly because of inclusion with Upper Devonian category.
