Mr. Ali Amin Gandapur
Chief Minister,Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is energy rich Province of Pakistan producing around 45% oil, 13% gas, and 42% of LPG daily at national level. Consequently, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa has become center of oil & gas exploration and production for both domestic and international investors. Prospective hydrocarbon & mineral potential of KP province is enormous. Several oil and gas fields have already been discovered and developed in KP, contributing to the Pakistan’s hydrocarbon production. These discoveries indicate the presence of viable unexplored resources and underscore the potential for further exploration success in the KP province.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is rich in oil and gas resources and huge deposits of oil & gas have already been discovered in the southern belt and Merged Districts of the province, including districts Kohat, Karak, Hangu, Waziristan, and DI Khan. Today, KP is producing daily around 45% of national crude oil, 13% gas and 42% LPG of national production. High impact discoveries are anticipated from the Merged Districts, Peshawar and Bannu Basins. Government of KP extends its fullest support to the domestic and international companies for investment in the oil and gas sector.

Mr. Nadeem Aslam Chaudhry

Chief Secretary,Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is the new Geological Frontier where various national and multinational exploration and production companies are working. The Petroleum Policy 2012 and all previous ones show much higher, wellhead prices for oil and gas Zone-1 & Zone-I(F) in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province which increase the returns on investment (ROI) and lowers the risk. KP holds potential for new exciting discoveries, particularly in the Kohat Basin and Merged Districts which has become main area of focus after successful discoveries by OGDCL, MOL, MPCL, and AEPL.

Mr. Nisar Ahmad

Secretary Energy & Power Department, Government of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa

The latest Petroleum Policy-2012, offers tremendous incentives and thus provides high returns to investors as operators and non-operators (JV partners). For Example, the gas wellhead price in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is set at US$ 6.60 per million BTU when Crude Oil is US$ 110/Barrel. The wellhead price of Crude Oil is bench marked with international Platts. LPG is linked with ARAMCO Contract Price (CP), thus, making wellhead price not only transparent and unambiguous without any government intervention but also US Dollar based. Repatriation of dividends is easy and quick. Pakistan has been divided into four onshore and one offshore zones. KP lies mostly in Zone-I and Zone-I(F), for which the wellhead prices are the highest compared to Zone-II & III.
