Carpathian region of Ukraine

About collisions of West European mikroplate and East European plate in western region of Ukraine by new data of regional geophysical research and prospects of oil-and-gas presence

In the paper the deep structure of the Carpathian region of Ukraine from the plate tectonics point of view is illustrated. According to geophysical research on regional sections the kimberlite formation of tectonomagmatic activation and seismofocal zone of Hercynian tectogenesis are found. Contrary to existing views the obtained data indicate that West European microplate came under the East European plate. In the light of the stated the prospects of oil-and-gas presence of the region are analysed.
