Oil survey to begin in Indian state

The Mizoram government and the Union ministry of petroleum in India will soon embark on a two-stage programme aimed at conducting elaborate surveys for identifying sites in the hilly and remote states for exploration of oil and natural gas. Official sources in Aizawl recently said the National Geophysical Research Institute (NGRI) and the National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA) would conduct an aeromagnetic survey for a start. The two-dimensional seismic surveys will cost Rs 1 crore. The cost will be borne by the Central Government.
