  Cretaceous rifted features in northern part of the southern segment of the Indus basin of Pakistan are generally grouped with “Sukkur Rift Zone” which comprises of a graben flanked by two horsts. These features partly extend into India and host oil and gas fields including giants on both sides of the Indo-Pakistan border. The present paper describes the petroleum geology and prospects of the Sukkur Rift zone utilizing existing geological, geophysical and drilling data. The results show good possibilities of finding more hydrocarbons in this area.
