Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. has tested gas-condensate from the Lower Basal sands of the Cretaceous Lower Goru formation in the Sanghar District of Sindh Province, Pakistan, 145 miles northeast of Karachi.

The Lower Goru has produced in the area, north of dozens of discoveries in the Lower Indus basin by the former Union Texas Petroleum Group in the 1970s-80s, and is considered to have considerable further potential (OGJ, Jan. 14, 2002, p. 37).
