Abstract: The paper is devoted to a detailed study of oil shale that is considered a new alternative energy resource for Azerbaijan. More than 60 surface manifestations of oil shale, related to sediments between Cretaceous period and Miocene epoch in the territories (Shamakhi-Gobustan, Absheron, Pre-Caspian-Guba, Ismayilli and etc.) of the Republic are investigated. The analysis of oil shale objects in Azerbaijan shows that greater manifestations are mainly developed in Gobustan and Absheron regions, during the Middle Eocene - Upper Miocene. The main practical features of Azerbaijan oil shale relates with its distribution regularities along the areas. Connected with different geological age, oil shale manifestations (Kichik Siyaki, Boyuk Siyaki, Islamdag, Baygushgaya, Uchtepe etc.) have found development within the same area (mainly in Gobustan) and closely spaced from each other. Such regularities create favorable conditions in joint development of these manifestations for future exploitation. To be away from the tracts of forest and the housing unit, is extra superiority of Azerbaijan oil shale from an economic and environmental point of view.

Key words: Azerbaijan, distribution regularity, geochemistry, organic matter, oil shale, shale gas.
