Abstract: Assignment standard for hydrocarbon-bearing probability of traps is the basis of quantitative assessment hydro-carbon potential of traps and has played a very important role in exploration risk analyses .Four key reservoiring elements including trap ,charging ,reservoir and preservation were chosen to be the major factors to represent hydrocarbon-bearing probabilities of traps with the products of their individual probabilities .For traps composed vertically of several target re-servoirs,the hydrocarbon-bearing probability refers to the probability of founding oil or gas in at least one target reservoir of the trap.Each of the four factors was further divided into two subfactors-occurrence subfactor and effective subfactor-based on different reservoiring controlling mechanisms and risk analyses of various oil or gas reservoirs .By applying the Barrel Effect principle to our calculation ,we proposed that if all the key parameters of the subfactors were independent from one another ,then the hydrocarbon-bearing probability would be the product of probability of key parameters;on the other hand,if the subfactors were related to one another ,then the probability would be the product of probability of key parameter with the maximum risk multiplying that of other subfactors .Based on the relevance ,availability ,controlling le-vel and quality of data ,we established the principle for probability assignment and set up standards for assigning the proba -bilities to the factors and subfactors and a 5-level hydrocarbon-bearing probability system .According to the system , the bigger the probability of trap contains hydrocarbon ,the lower the geological risks ,and vice versa.Implementation of the method in Tarim basin has been proven positive .
