Existence of local magnetic anomalies with a few nT amplitudes upon oil and gas deposits proportionate with structure contours was approved in practice by magnetic measurements in different hydrocarbon structures and can be one of the searching criteria for hydrocarbon traps. Hydrocarbon migration and microseepage effect change composition of magnetic minerals including nearsurface areas and soils. The results of magnetic studies on Vizhomlya and Sudova-Vyshnya gas fields in the Ukrainian part of Carpathian Foredeep are shown. Specific features of structure of the local magnetic field and the magnetic susceptibility of soil are analyzed. The local magnetic anomalies with amplitude of 4-7 nT and a width of about 3 km were detected upon the investigated geological structures. Magnetic susceptibility investigations of soils on the Sudova-Vyshnya gas field showed close correlation with landscape changes. Soils are not very magnetic. The interpretation of the local magnetic and soil magnetic susceptibility anomalies upon hydrocarbon fields is a complex problem and needs further researching, including the integration of other geophysical methods in solving problems of petroleum geology.

Magnetic measurements in a number of hydrocarbon structures suggest the existence of local magnetic anomalies with certain nT amplitude reflecting the structure contours of the oil and gas deposits, which could therefore be used as a criterion for identifying hydrocarbon traps. Hydrocarbon migration and the microseepage effect changing the composition of magnetic minerals and reaching as high as the near-surface areas and soils cause local magnetic anomalies and changes in the magnetic properties of soils. Magnetic studies on the Orchovychi oil and gas field, Carpathian Foredeep, Western Ukraine, revealed specific features of the local magnetic field and the magnetic properties of soil. A local magnetic anomaly with amplitude of 6-8 nT and a width of about 4 km was detected in the structure of the magnetic field within the Outer zone of the Carpathian Foredeep. The anomaly relates to hydrocarbon deposit areas with complex morphology. Magnetic susceptibility (MS) of soils in the Orhovychi oil and gas field showed a close correlation with landscape changes. Soils were found to show magnetic susceptibility anomalies in close proximity to productive hydrocarbon areas. © 2015, Institute of Geophysics of the ASCR, v.v.i.

The Starunia oil-ozokerite deposit occurs in the Boryslav-Pokuttya Unit of the Carpathian Foredeep, which is the main oil- and gas-bearing part of the Ukrainian Carpathians. Starunia is of great interest in studying the relationship between the magnetic properties of rocks, soils and hydrocarbons due to extensive surface microseeps yielding oil and gas, mineral water, and clay pulp containing hydrocarbons. We identified a local negative magnetic anomaly (30–35 nT) with a width of about 700 m within the MAG1 profile. The magnetic high is associated with the area of the largest mud volcanoes in the Starunia structure. Magnetic susceptibility of the soil was measured on a site with three distinct landscape features: a patch of forest with phaeozem and mass-specific susceptibility (χ) of 20–45 × 10−8 m3/kg for the surface topsoil; an area near the volcano and Nadia-1 well with visible hydrocarbon microseepage at the surface and the topsoil showing no visible evidence of hydrocarbon presence with χ = 20–50 × 10−8 m3/kg; and a patch of lowland with gleysols and χ = 10–20 × 10−8 m3/kg. Hydrocarbon-containing clays and soils from the alluvial sediments of the Velyky Lukavets River and bedrock clays near the Nadia-1 well demonstrated high χ values (up to 250–440 × 10−8 m3/kg). © 2016 Institute of Geophysics of the ASCR, v.v.i
