The Petroleum Exploration and Production Policy 2011 is structured in six sections:
• Licensing Process; • Exploration and Production Regimes; • Regulatory Process and Obligations; • Pricing and Incentives for Petroleum Exploration &
Production; • Implementation and Removal of Difficulties; • Conversion to 2011 Policy.
This policy has incorporated the significant achievements of the Pakistani petroleum industry with established good international oilfield practices. The policy will be enhanced by DGPC’S continued active support of: 1. The implementation of best practices for assessing
petroleum projects and efficient regulatory process. 2. Vigorously promoting exploration and production investment opportunities within Pakistan to both the domestic and the international petroleum industry. 3. Vigorously promote the access to and sale of public domain upstream geological and engineering data sets both in Pakistan and abroad.
