At present time exploration and development of oil and gas fields on the shelf of the Caspian Sea is actively conducted. In turn, the water area of the Caspian Sea is earthquake-prone, and in the construction of oil and gas facilities it is necessary to assess the seismic hazards. In the article the calculation method used in seismic microzoning is considered in detail. The methodology of seismic influence calculation from possible centers of earthquakes is visually shown. The result of the work was a set of accelerograms, which can be used to calculate the seismic loads on the object.
