Estimated reserves are Gas fields are expected to last for another 20 years. Daily production is 19 million cubic meters a day. Under the barren mountains of Balochistan and the sands of Sindh, there are untouched oil and gas reserves.
The forests are also used for wildlife conversation and ecotourism. There are large deposits of rock salt in the Pothohar Plateau. Pakistan boasts one of the largest irrigation systems in the world.

Water The fishing industry plays a role in the national economy of Pakistan. The coastline is km and fishery resources still have room to grow. Fishing in Pakistan is a major source of export earnings.
Natural resources of Pakistan include an extensive natural gas supply, some oil, hydro power potential, coal, iron ore, copper, salt, and limestone. About ELLLO! ELLLO!
