salam. i am in 7th semister nw i selected for my thesis topic is petroleum system of lower indus basin and the second one is potentatial area in pakistan with respect to biostratigraphy.plz tell can company or organization will give data and also tell me one of the best topic in petroleum prospect .

Dear Mutahir,

Thanks for sending me your question. I really appreciate it.

In order to meet your studies objective I would suggest you; first try to find information about petroleum system of Lower Indus Basin (LIB) through published papers and books. There is a lot of work on this subject and available in public domain literature. Key results you need from literature is about various source rock and their properties.

You need wells data that helps you for quantitative analysis, for example Gross reservoir thickness, lithofacies, net to gross thickness and porosity and permeability (from well logs) and fluids data which require logs (in LAS format) and well reports. If you are using  petrophysical software for each well interpretation then you need digital data of all wells logs.

I understand that you are probably looking to get seismic data as well in order to identify different structures in LIB. In this regard you may contact companies through your university department and get data only if company wishes to participate and has some common interest in your studies but entirely up to the company's decision if they want to release data or not.

Other method is to send an official request to acquire all data from government's department who looks after data archives. Usually, it's a cumbersome process but if you write your case strongly then hopefully you will get it. In your request, you should include  a justification that elaborate why you want it and what benefits industry may get after your course completion.

I don't really understand what you mean by penitential area in Pakistan with respect to biostratigraphy. Can you elaborate please?

There are better subjects to do a project work and I would advise to seriously consider selecting better title of your project.
