The latest Petroleum Policy-2012, a one window facility offers tremendous incentives and thus provides high returns to investors as operators and/or non-operators JV partners. For Example, the gas well head price in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is set at US$ 6.60 per million BTU when Crude Oil is US$ 110/Barrel. This is perhaps highest in the region. The well head price of Crude Oil is bench marked with international Platts. LPG is linked with ARAMCO Contract Price (CP), thus, making well head not only transparent and unambiguous without any government intervention but also US Dollar based. Repatriation of dividends is easy and quick. Pakistan is divided in 3 On-shore zones. KP lies in Zone-1, for which the well head price is highest compared to Zone-II & III.
