Moderate Interpretation with Attribute Analysis and 3d Visualization for Deeper Prospects of Balkassar Field, Central Potwar, Upper Indus Basin, Pakistan  [PDF]
Farhana Masood, Zulfiqar Ahmad, Muhammad Sohail Khan
International Journal of Geosciences (IJG) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ijg.2017.85037
Abstract: Balkassar is an old field with considerable remaining potential. The 2d, 3d seismic and earlier vintages show that Balkassar is composed of two folds that impart heart shaped geometry. It appears likely the early Eocene age Bhadrar formation may provide commercial production with lower water cuts from the eastern lobe (yet untapped) of the structure that may have at least 30 million barrels of unrecovered oil. Horizontal drilling may have promise as an optimum technique for recovery of oil from Paleogene reservoirs. Encouraging oil indications have also been recorded from the early Permian age tobra formation from Balkassar oxy-1 that was not tested by Oxy. Tobra sandstone reservoir can have a matrix porosity approaching 8%. When fractured recoveries from it can be relatively better than the Paleogene reservoirs. The 2D and 3D seismic acquisition has confirmed that the eastern lobe (yet untapped) of the Balkassar field is structurally higher and steeper than the Western lobe which has thus far produced over 30 million barrels. The Eastern lobe thus offers good potential for recovery of oil from the Bhadrar reservoir. The entire field is likely to have potential for recovery of oil from the early Eocene aged Tobra formation. 2-d and 3-D Seismic data interpretation, attribute analysis and visualization for deeper prospect carried in Balksasar field. Tobra and Khewra formation studied for deeper potential drilling. Time contour and depth contour map shows potential for deeper prospects. Also attribute analysis and 3d visualization show good results for deeper potential of Tobra and Khewar formations. Seismic amplitude, Reflection strength, Apparent polarity attribute are visualized and interpreted to find the potential for Tobra and Khewra formation. 3-D visualization also showed positive results for Tobra and Khewra formations.

Journal of Financial Risk Management (JFRM) , 2019, DOI: 10.4236/jfrm.2019.81001
Abstract: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of firm structure (whether diversified or focused firms) on corporate cash holding. Samples of 80 non-financial companies were selected including diversified and focused firms which were listed on Karachi stock exchange for a period 7 years from 2006 to 2013. These diversified and focused firms were selected on the basis of equal proportionate method. Random effect model and descriptive statistics were used for the analysis of these variables. The results of these models showed that there is negative and significant effect of firm structure on corporate cash holding. We also find negative and significant relationship of leverage and Networking capital with the corporate cash holdings and the relation between growth opportunities and corporate cash holding was examined to be positive and significant. We also find a negative and insignificant relationship between firm size and corporate cash holding. The descriptive statistics showed that there was significant difference between the cash holding of diversified and focused firms. The diversified firms keep a smaller amount of cash as compare to the single segment companies (focused firms), which is in support of the trade-off theory. This paper contributes to current literatures with regard to organization structure (whether diversified or focused firms) on cash holding in a developing economy like Pakistan.

Journal of Service Science and Management (JSSM) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/jssm.2014.74027

In this my present study, I elaborate different types of management, management staffs, types of managers and leaders along with their capacities of work and their roles in any organization or institute to achieve the desired goal with the help of employees. A study found that most of the CEOs of the 62 major US-based companies spent at least 10 percent of their time in quality enhancement efforts. The critical importance of employees’ involvement in the quality process of an organization is based on the belief that the best process innovation ideas come from the people actually doing the job. Employee involvement in quality efforts can only come about when the employees know that the organization cares for them. Best companies do not just confine education and training to their shop floor employees and managers. Top executives are actively involved in the learning process themselves. Training is the key element of management system. For the smooth run of any organization we always need proper training for all employees including leadership authority.

Certain difficulties are inherent in the implementation of the improvement of the quality of service, particularly in the Design Management Department. There is often a difference on the issue of translating vision between senior management and Design Department for service improvement into effective, operational QI programs. Middle managers have a key role to play, but often they are overlooked which leads to undermining their efforts to improve the quality programs offered by senior management. This paper describes the first phase of a PhD research project to determine and develop the role of middle management in successful implementation of quality management programs. A framework for quality improvement implementation, including key issues of importance to middle managers regarding their proactive involvement in QI, is suggested. Finally, the initial implementation of the model in a company is discussed.

Effects of different planting systems on yield of potato crop in Kaghan Valley: A mountainous region of Pakistan  [PDF]

Agricultural Sciences (AS) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/as.2013.44025

Conversion of potato from conventional methods to wide bed planting systems may increase water and nitrogen use efficiency in commercial potato production system by reducing the amount of irrigation water and water applied nitrogen fertilizer bypassing the potato root zone. Potato (Solanum tuberosum L) cv. Desiree was tested against different planting system for yield and yield components at Kaghan, a high mountainous Himalayan region ofPakistan. The experiment was carried out at Himalayan Agricultural Research Station (HARS), Kaghan during the summer season of 2005. The results showed that maximum tuber growth (88.7%), number of stems per plant (3.5), plant expansion (45.5 cm), average number of tubers per plant (10.1) and yield per hectare (12.4 t/ha) were significantly different and higher when potatoes were planted on wide bed and covered with soil from one side. Tallest plants (53.4 cm) were observed when potatoes were sown on the ridges. Maximum number of green potatoes (12.5) and injured potatoes (5.3%) were observed when the tubers were planted following local farmers’ method. Keeping in view the soil type, land slopping, we recommend sowing potatoes on relatively plain wide beds and covering it with soil from one side, for potato cultivation in the area.

Ulnar dimelia variant: a case report
Javed Jameel,Abdul Qayyum Khan,Sohail Ahmad,Mazhar Abbas
Journal of Orthopaedics and Traumatology , 2011, DOI: 10.1007/s10195-011-0146-y
Abstract: We report a case of ulnar dimelia, commonly called mirror hand, in a 2-month-old female child who had restriction of elbow flexion and forearm rotation. There was no facial or other internal organ malformation. Radiographs revealed seven triphalangeal digits with double ulnae (one following the other) and absent radius. To the best of the authors’ knowledge, this is the first report of this mirror hand deformity in which fingers are symmetrical while duplicated ulnae are not.

Muhammad Iqbal,Khezir Hayat,Rao Sohail Ahmad Khan,Attiq Sadiq
Asian Journal of Plant Sciences , 2006,
Abstract: The objective of this study was to get information about a character that is useful for selection in segregating generations for improving seed cotton yield. The present study was conducted to determine correlation and path coefficient analysis of earliness and yield components of upland cotton. The results showed that node of first fruiting branch, monopodial branches/ Plant, boll number and boll weight was positively and significantly correlated with yield in present genetic material understudy. Similarly path coefficient analysis revealed that node of first fruiting branch, monopodial branches/ Plant, boll number and boll weight had maximum direct positive effect on seed cotton yield, whereas the traits ginning out turn percentage (GOT%) and staple length had the direct negative effect on seed cotton yield. The results indicated that for evolving a superior genotype possessing all the three basic characteristics i.e., earliness, high yield and improved fiber quality of international standard, breeder had to use reciprocal recurrent selection method or modified back cross or three- way cross within genetic material under study. The result of present study indicated that for evolving a superior genotype possessing earliness, high yield, breeder should focus on improving no. of bolls and boll weight with lower no. of monopodial branches and node of first fruiting branch.

Samiulhaq, Sohail Ahmad, Dumitru Vieru, Ilyas Khan, Sharidan Shafie
PLOS ONE , 2014, DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0088766
Abstract: Magnetic field influence on unsteady free convection flow of a second grade fluid near an infinite vertical flat plate with ramped wall temperature embedded in a porous medium is studied. It has been observed that magnitude of velocity as well as skin friction in case of ramped temperature is quite less than the isothermal temperature. Some special cases namely: (i) second grade fluid in the absence of magnetic field and porous medium and (ii) Newtonian fluid in the presence of magnetic field and porous medium, performing the same motion are obtained. Finally, the influence of various parameters is graphically shown.
