The article discusses geodynamic setting of the pre-Hercynian, Hercynian and Alpine stages, which played key role in the formation of folded Meso-Cenozoic structures in the vicinity of the Yevlakh-Agdzhebedi Petroleum Region. Analyzing structural and tectonic features identified in geological and geophysical 3D models, deep sections, and multidirectional regional survey lines, the authors assume geodynamic situation revealed from geological and geophysical materials in the region affects the following stratigraphic intervals: Permian-Triassic (Basement), Jurassic-Cretaceous-Paleogene, Maykop-Miocene, and Pliocene-Quaternary. By identifying these intervals, it is possible to globally predict the petroleum potential of the provinces. At the same time, tectonic zoning in the vicinity of the Yevlakh-Agdzhebedinsky basin must take into account the results of 3D models visualization, and parametric drilling within the carbonate deposits should be carried out to clarify their composition and oil and gas content.
