The peak oil debate has been around for well over a decade, but as we come out of the most recent oil crisis and continue to expand our reliance on non-conventional oil extraction processes, it.
Pakistan's natural resources range from natural gas reserves, vast land, coal, petroleum, copper, salt and iron ore among others. It has the second largest salt mines in the world, as well as world’s fifth largest gold mines.
It is one of the largest producers of wheat in the world and is the seventh country in the world with nuclear power. Pakistan doesn’t have a significant amount of Natural Resources.
