I have seen this topic tossed around and many news of such discoveries. I want to know the status of where this oil is, why its not being exported yet and what are we doing to explore furthr oil fields in the sea or on land. If we ever become an oil exporter, we can get out of this econimic crunch and maintain parity with india in terms of military budget.

Yes, there is more likely to be oil in Pakistan, but the economy of extraction has to be feasible to justify multi billion investment.

This kind of speculation surfaces from time to time where the imagination and desire is monumentaly greater than mundane reality.
There are no vast oil fields to be discovered on the landmass of south asia.
There are some possibilities offshore but even those are just barely profitable and cannot be described as being vast,

That is the sad truth.

What is the state of a comprehensive exploration of natural resources in Pakistan in general. The Afghan map not minerals changed the dynamic of global interest in them decades ago. We have similar topography plus one of the largest river systems and river deltas in the world. Doesn’t that usually translate into an extensive mineral potential?

Any estimate of the cost and terms Indians have to bear for the exploration and any future extraction?
