It should be underlined that Azerbaijan is the most ancient hydrocarbon province of the world. For example, the world’s first oil well was drilled in 1848 in the Absheron Peninsula. This event took place eleven years prior to the drilling of the first oil well in Pennsylvania. Geophysical methods for oil and gas searching (localization) began to apply in Azerbaijan since 20s of the twentieth century.
