This digitally compiled map includes petroleum geology, geologic provinces, and oil and gas fields of South Asia. The map is part of a worldwide series released by the U. S. Geological Survey World Energy Project. The goal of the project is to assess the undiscovered, technically recoverable oil and gas resources of the world and report these results by the year 2000. For data management purposes the world was divided into eight energy regions corresponding approximately to the economic regions of the world as defined by the U.S. Department of State. South Asia (Region 8) is represented on this CD-ROM (see Reference Map), and includes Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka.
