Main scientific achievements Establishing for the first time of axiomatic principles of the theory of  classification and theoretical dynamic models of formation and development of geo-fluidal pressure as well as an automated complex of methods for their studies and prediction on the basis of geological observations, seismic surveys, geophysical studies of wells and drilling technique data; suggestion for the first time of theoretical models of sediment compaction; development of  physical-mathematical modeling methods for screening of reservoir and physical properties of rocks considering the individual impact of thermo-baric, structural-lithological and geotectonic factors; studies of space porosity structure and mineralogical properties of uncompleted shale by means of computer simulation of geochemical and thermodynamic conditions of allotigenic mineral formation which enabled theoretical validation  of mechanism of interrelations and interface of transformation of clay minerals with anomalous thermobaric and geohydrochemical conditions of the bowels of the earth;  suggestion of a new methodology for defining the zone intervals of oil and gas formation based on prediction of maximum depth of smectic preservation.

Development of the principles of mathematical analysis for processes occurring during the geological and technological time in elision systems allowing to quantitative evaluation of  scales of lateral and vertical migration, determination of the filtrating and screening properties of shaly rocks and evaluation of the role of internal water drive based on data of geological-geophysical and hydrodynamic studies.

Suggestion of model of mechanism of autonomous folding formation in sedimentary basins conditioned by spatial density heterogeneity; grounding of geotectonical concept of formation of general planetary and local types of foldings, vertical and faults in the bowels of the earth by means of  instability model for the first time; carrying out with the use of theoretical models and techniques   created for South Caspian basin of an integrated quantitative evaluation of conditions and intervals of oil and gas formation, pore pressure in reservoirs, parameters of migration, folding, filtration-captivity and screening properties of rocks, which allowed validation and confirmation of the existing views on high potential of oil and gas bearing structures located at the depth of 10 km.
