This paper presents a brief study of the presence and study of seismic material to study the geological structure of deposits and the natural state of hydrocarbon reserves within the Caspian, Ustyurt-Bachinsky and Mangyshlak basin. The research is based on the concept of studying hydrocarbon deposits by type by foreign companies, based on the structural and dynamic interpretation of seismic material on the example of Kazakhstan fields. Characteristic indicators of the concept are the selection of sedimentation conditions and the beginning of forecasting their distribution in areas where there is no well data, for the selection of sedimentation bodies, the presence of accumulation zones, as well as modern migration channels. The importance of studying seismic material with the help of dynamic interpretation of oil and gas fields in the Caspian basin was clearly demonstrated by earlier analyses of seismic material. Calculations, proofs, and experimental studies made it possible, based on the created conceptual model of the structure of hydrocarbon deposits, to justify the prospects for oil and gas potential and the feasibility of conducting geological exploration within these areas.
