The article informs that Javed Saifullah Khan, chairman of Pakistani conglomerate Saif Group, is in dilemma to drill or not to drill in Taliban territory in the North West Frontier Province (NWFP). Drilling is put on hold in some of the worst-hit war-torn areas, like Waziristan in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) next to NWFP. But Saif Energy, a subsidiary of Saif Group, is willing to risk a bet as new seismic studies show the region has gas potential.
