The Caspian Sea is one of the main objects of exploration and extraction of natural resources that could soon become a strong resource base in Russia. The discovery of oil and gas fields in the south of the Caspian Sea, and in the early 21st century on the northern waters, attracts the attention of researchers to study the conditions of formation of deposits of natural resources. North of the Caspian Sea region could become a leading oil producer in Russia.
