Hydrocarbon Resources of the East Siberian Sea Coastal Shelf Zone – belong to the Novosibirsk Petroleum Basin formed in the extensive sublatitudinal downwarping of the southern slope of the hyperborean platform. The East Siberian Sea Coastal Shelf Zone is the least explored one of the Eurasian Arctic shelf zones. The shelf zone contains carbonate-terrigenous Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic deposits 4–12 km thick and may prove to be rich in hydrocarbon resources.
