Is there any difference in meaning between hydrocarbon deposits and fields?
Which of them better describes oil and gas reserves underground that have not yet been discovered?

    I'd prefer deposits for underground reserves as yet undiscovered, Andrey. I'd assume fields were already being exploited, like the oil fields of Texas or ... well, cornfields:)
