Geothermal in Pakistan

Most of the high enpathalpy geothermal resources of the world are within seismic volcanic activity. A global seismic belt passes through Pakistan and the country has long geological history of geotectonic events. Pakistan possesses a good regime for goethermal energy. Many hot water springs, some generating surface water temperature upto 83oC lie in the North of Pakistan. Geothermal sites have also been identified in Balochistan and Sindh. Although detailed survey have not been conducted. In Tibet, which occupies more or less the same geological position in Himalayan mountain ranges as Pakistan, more than 6000 surface indications of geothermal energy resources have been discovered with an estimated potential of 800,000 KW. It is estimated that over 5,000 MW of Geothermal resources can be commercially tapped in the short run.
