    A joint venture of oil and gas companies have discovered crude oil and gas from Kohat in Khyber Paktunkhwa province, according to the Oil and Gas Company Ltd (OGDCL) on Tuesday.

    The company said, a well was drilled down to the depth of 5440 meters and it has been tested 76 BDP crude oil and 0.512 Million Standard Cube Feet per day (MMSCFD) gas.

    The discovery of well, the company said, is the result of aggressive exploration strategy adopted by the OGDCL.
    A statement said the discovery has opened a new avenue in Khyber Paktunkhwa for exploration of deeper prospects for other companies operating in the area.



    The discovery of oil and gas at deeper prospects would certainly add to the hydrocarbon reserves base of OGDCL and of the country, said the company.

    76 barrel per day is not enough but AL HUM DULILLAH on whatever we get. We should keep drilling for like 400 wells to meet the needs.

    Our daily usage of oil is around 350,000 bpd. If we explore enough to meet only our needs, it will be a huge relief. Any exploration work going on in thar and other deserts?

    Every little fart of gas from a well in Pakistan makes headline news ... These low productivity wells are not worth mentioning...

    Pakistan has oil reserves only in potohar region
    Toot oilfields and increase in production isn't due to these small wells
    And Balochistan and Sindh are producing gas

    OGDC has been purposely dragging its feet ever since its inception and for a reason...where they drill in Pakistan they hit oil & gas. Pakistan has HUGE reserves of both. It is HIGH time that Pakistan capitalized on it & freed ourselves from the the gcc states. We have the biggest customer sitting just to the north of us...CHINA!

    Not true it's propaganda
    Sindh is biggest producer of gas and Balochistan is second and Punjab is biggest or only producer of oil

    Mol is a foreign company that has many successes in Pakistan. You doubting their figures. Fyi, i am not doubting other provinces produce oil and gas, just pointing out potohar is not only oil producing region.
