End_Page 1363------------------------------

Subsurface temperature measurements within wells along the Indus River basin in the search for oil and gas form the data bank for this study. The objective of the work was to evaluate the geothermal environment associated with the location of oil and gas fields taking into consideration all available subsurface temperature information. The location of the study area along the thrust fault plane between continents presents an interesting opportunity to observe the current geothermal environment along such a major tectonically active feature. The paper presents the results of the survey in the form of a regional geothermal gradient map identifying areas with greater than fourfold changes in relative geothermal intensity.
