I want to know about a question. Sir i know about the location of Balkassar, Joyamair,Chaknaurang, Fimkassar and Missakeswal Oil Field
location in Upper Indus Basin Of Pakistan. I want to know about that these fields are located in Potwar Basin or Kohat Basin. Either these are located in western part or eastern part of Upper Indus Basin. Kindly tell me about these fields exact location in Upper Indus Basin.

I will be thankful to you.


Kohat Basin lies west of Indus River and north of Shinghar Range. So all these fields are in Potwar. If you draw a N-S oriented line, dividing Potwar into two halves, they all fall on the eastern side; hence they are located in eastern part of Potwar. Better use the term Potwar for this region, and not 'upper Indus Basin'.

QUESTION: Thank You.

Sir Kindly tell me about the Chaknaurang and Joyamair Field exact location in which district it is located in Pakistan.



You better find a district map of the region and plot the wells. I do not have those maps.

QUESTION: Kindly tell me some reference paper, book or any other material in which i get complete details of these fields amd area. Sir, If you have some of these give me link.



Take hold of the PAPG-SPE ATCs Proceedings or the HDIP Journals, and you may find relevant details.

The time ahead is very tough. You may not be happy with my comments now, but better follow them lest you regret, say after a decade or so!

I regret that you did not take my advice in good esteem.Your loss! I am not much interested in the rating thing, but as it followed my above response I thought making the exchange of mails public. Still I have not asked AllEpert to restrict your access to the site.

Think again about my advice, for the sake of your future!
