In 2015, an interdisciplinary group led by SENER undertook the task to identify sites where it was feasible to capture CO₂ from power generation plants and its subsequent use in mature oil fields for EOR. Specialists from PEMEX, CFE and the National Institute for Nuclear Research (ININ) participated in this project.
The databases have been integrated since 2015 and compiled in a geographic information system (GIS). The GIS platform makes it possible to find information about anthropogenic CO₂ sources, sites for CO₂ use and geological storage, and areas with potential for developing CCUS projects. The data is updated to 2018 and includes databases from the SENER, SEMARNAT, PEMEX, CFE, UNAM and the National Hydrocarbons Information Centre (CNIH).
