The distribution of petrophysical parameters (porosity, grittiness, permeability, shaliness) measured in rock samples from well logs drilled in the Qala-Turkan area was not reflected on the maps compiled as a result of statistical analysis. Therefore, to clarify the existence of lithological non-anticline traps, the following questions were considered. As can be seen from the maps, the sufficiently high grittiness and permeability in the north-west part of the fold suggest that the reservoirs have high oil and gas content and favorable conditions for the accumulation of hydrocarbons in the QaLD horizon of the investigated areas. Predictive estimates of petrophysical parameters (effective porosity, sandy, effective thickness and permeability ratios) in arches, periclinal and wings of the northwestern part of QaLD were analyzed by depth and area variability for the study, investigation, analysis, classification, appearance and perspective of lithological, stratigraphic, and tectonic screened non-structural traps on QaLD of the Qala-Turkan area. In addition, the classification and detection of non-anticlinical traps as a result of geological sections in this area were analyzed. Petrophysical parameters analysis on geological profiles was conducted to identify non-anticlinal traps in the Qala-Turkan area, and the increase of the values of these parameters from the north-west to the structure pericline is determined (in lithological pinchout and tectonic screened sections). The sharp changes of the observed petrophysical parameters indicate that the rocks within the trap can be oil and gas reservoirs.
