Presently there is a rich experience in the 3D seismic and EM exploration application in geological settings of Eastern and Western Siberia. The problems of the upper part of the section structure mapping, the aquifers investigation, the capacitive properties and the type of saturation of productive layers prediction are solved. Additionally, the technology of electromagnetic exploration has been tested and introduced into production for the geological settings of drilling prediction and water front movement appraisal. Examples of geological problems solving with the TEM electromagnetic soundings application are given. Depending on the studied depth intervals, the solved geological problems are divided into 3 groups – the upper part to 500 m, the middle part of the section 500-2000 m, the depth interval to which the main productive horizons are confined – 2000-4000 m.
