    New onshore gas field discovered in Pakistan
    The onshore gas field is located in the Khirtar Fold Belt region, 350 kilometers north of Karachi.


    Italian oil group Eni said on Wednesday it had discovered a new onshore gas field in Pakistan with about 8.5-11.5 billion cubic metres of gas in place.

    A test revealed the gas quality is "excellent", Eni said.

    "The drilling of Badhra North B-1 is part of Eni s new strategy in Pakistan which aims to refocus exploration activities in the neighboring areas to productive fields and confirms the presence of significant exploration potential that can be exploited through the application of new geological models," the Italian group added.

    Eni said it has started discussion with the Pakistani regulator in order to speed up the production of the discovery through a long-term production test that will allow for the commercialization of gas, and help to reduce the national gas deficit.

    Eni has been present in Pakistan since 2000 and is the largest producer in the country, with an average equity production at approximately 54,800 barrels of oil equivalent per day in 2011.

    if your news is true then China company is on its way to explore it in Pakistan, they will take your natural gas and give your country natural gas of their stomach. I am sure your efficient govt will accept it and make deal to give you J10 and some J20.

    Congrats mate.

    i dont believe it when they say the big and wide India has no oil and gas either.. I am happy though that none is found in large volumes yet. Wait for the mid east to dry up and then i hope we strike GOLD!!

    govt is doing nothing nor will they do until ppp is

    in 2009 uranium reserves were discovered in bannu and nothing is done since than

    the Karak gas field is very huge it supply to Peshawar and beyond till Dera ismail khan
    to almost 70% of kpk

    it supplies gas to each and every house and at very cheap rates

    while it only counts for 16% of the total active gas reserves

    There has been big oil and gas find off the Orissa coast but due to environmental issues and also due to the ongoing Krishna Godavari Block issue, Relaince is going slow in this block. IIRC they call it the Mahanadi Block.

    ONGC has also found significant Gas Reserves here.

    first of all Israel is a very small country
    while few months before large gas reserves were discovered in Israel


    well if you check the proven gas reserves ranking by countries

    India is slightly ahead of Pakistan despite that no major discovery process is done here and Pakistan is smaller than India as well

    Farhan, Sui gas field has huge reserves and is a proven gas field for Pakistan.

    Wonder if there is more exploration in the area, or has it been stopped due to the law and order position.

    Sui gas field is now past tense
    it counts only 2% of total reserve now as it was discovered in 1952

    70% of Pakistan active gas reserve are in sindh

    IMHO with the kind of Coal Reserves and the shortages being faced in Pakistan, the plans for the Thermal Power plants are very modest.

    In today's time to get higher efficiency and lower emission, it is the time for Super Critical plants of 600 MW and above. Chinese equipment manufacturers make decent stuff and have sold some plants in India too.

    while thar coal reserves were discovered in 1991 and confirmed by international firms as well

    and despite 2 decades not even 100mw plant is active yet

    i guess we should shoot all our part leaders and give a chance to imran khan

    with finance minister like Asad umar
