Govt confirms existence of reserves of raw oil in Balochistan
ISLAMABAD: In response to a viral video, Petroleum Ministry of Pakistan has confirmed existence of reserves of raw oil in Balochistan.
It is a fact that small pools of raw oil are present in Mughal Kot area of Sheerani district, the Petroleum Division said in a tweet. However, it said, experts believe that excavation at extensive level could not be done at those sites viewing its quantity. It said the expenditure on excavation of the oil would be far greater than the profit it could yield.
