The paper describes evolution history of the methods of seismostratigraphic analysis and geological section prediction, and provides a brief methodology for these studies supported by the seismic data. Based on the interpretation results of the Sovetler-Kalamadin regional profile, the possibility of identification of structural evolution stages, seismic complexes and seismic facies in the Meso-Cenozoic succession is demonstrated. Several exploration wells drilled on the prospects in the Jafarli field (##1, 5, 21, 22) produced oil, thereby confirming our forecasts.

Keywords: seismic stratigraphy, prediction of geological section, seismic facies, seismic prospecting, wave dynamics, interpretation, “bright spot”, “dark spot”, oil accumulation
