No potential trouble here at all ...  nice quiet place to drill ...

Pakistan expected oil discovery is located near Iran border

Pakistan’s expected discovery of massive oil reserves is located 230km off shore Karachi close to the Iran borders, a senior official has confided to Gulf News.

“It is too early to determine the size of the reserves but it is expected to be big enough to cater to Pakistan’s oil needs,” a source close to the information said on the condition of anonymity.

He, however, said the initial findings suggested that Pakistan may become an oil exporting country in the future.

... 

According to media reports, if the oil deposits are discovered as expected, Pakistan will be among top the 10 oil-producing countries.

Pakistan currently meets only 15 per cent of its domestic petroleum needs with crude oil production of around 22 million tons; the other 85 per cent is supplied through imports.

230km off shore is right out on / beyond the continental shelve. That's going to be an ultra deep water operation so not cheap. Near the Iranian border the ocean floor comes quite close to the coast.

Calling any Oceanographers / Geologists for comment.
