This article has summarized two models of hydrocarbon deposits and several algorithms of interpretation for the models. The algorithms of introcontinuation, balayage, concentration are considered for 2D and 3D cases. The algorithms are realized on a mesh and calculated by computer. The algorithm of introcontinuation uses finit-difference continuation of the field to lower half-space and finit-difference variations of V. M. Berezkin method of full normalized gradient. The algorithm of balayage is based on the balayage-method of H. Poincare and numerical realization of the method on the mesh in terms of D. Zidarov approach. The algorithm of concentration is statistical regularization for distance (discrepancy or smoothing functional) with reiterative balayage. Software package includes the algorithms and it is used for model cases and practice cases for oil and gas deposits.
