Specialists of VSEGEI conducted research of the carbon isotopic composition in various components of oils from two known oil seep of Lake Baikal (near Tolsty cape and Gorevoy Utes cape). The results of the isotope-fractional analysis are generally consistent with the conclusions obtained Kontorovich .. in 2007 during the geochemical research of the composition of oils.
