The aim of the paper is to develop the geological researchmethods for increasing the natural gas resource base in Ukraine. The action researchset is aimed atincreasing the natural gasresource base and has no analogues in Ukraine.

Proposed is the forecastingtechniques for promising gas accumulation areas at great depth, which allowed to justify the main line of geological explorationand establish the priority objects of hydrocarbon exploration based on their rating.

It was developed for the first time the totality of techniques for scientific justification of hydrocarbon non-anticline traps formation, which made it possible to identify the promising zones.

The new method of additional reservoir exploration with а common contact reservoirs is developedthat can detect the presence of slightly drained zones and increase also the gas presence areas and refine the parameters.

It was developed for the first time a set of scientific and practical measures to optimize the recovery of remaining hydrocarbon reservestaking into consideration the level ofwater encroachment and zones of their maximum concentration.

Scientific and practical importance of the work is confirmed by gas reserves growth including the new deposits discovery, for period 1998-2017 in volume of 290 100 billion of cubic meters of gas with 15 657 billion cubic meters of gas in 2017. It’s confirmed by including the added new reserves of gas in State register of mineral reserves of Ukraine.

          Methodological guidelines are developed in 4 monographs and more than 300 articles.The total number of links to authors' publications - 211 (according to GoogleScholardatabase), the solutions are protected by 35 patents, defended are 2 doctoral thesis and 8 master’s dissertations.
