TWO GROUPS TEST GAS DISCOVERIES IN PAKISTAN AREAS
Pakistan's campaign to boost production is making headway, largely on the strength of successes by combines led by foreign operators. A group led by Occidental Petroleum (Pakistan) Inc. tested a gas discovery in Northeast Pakistan. Beijing's Xinhua News Agency reported the pay is the deepest in which gas has been tested in Pakistan. In Southeast Pakistan, a unit of Union Texas Petroleum Holdings Inc. leads a group that has found more gas in the Badin area.
