APEC workshop for CO2 storage in Mexico City
Mexico City became the meeting place for a series of international workshops on carbon, capture and storage (CCS) of carbon dioxide (CO2), bringing together technical experts from around the world to discuss topics ranging from capacity development to predictive modelling associated with Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR).
Sponsored by the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and taking place on the 26 & 27th August, the Global CCS Institute organised the first of three workshops, which was held at the IPN ESIA Ticomán Auditorium in Mexico City. The well attended meeting had around 50 technical professionals including geologists, geophysicists and reservoir engineers with an interest in carbon dioxide (CO2) geological storage and EOR. The Mexican partners for the workshop included: SECRETARÍA DE ENERGÍA (SENER), Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE), FECIT, PEMEX, Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), Instituto Politécnico Nacional (IPN) and Fondo de Sustentabilidad Energética.

The meeting provided a high level summary of the status of CCS/CCUS projects and programs, both globally and with specific reference to Mexico. Following a review of the fundamental principles of geological storage, leading world experts from Mexico, the US, Canada, and China delivered a set of expert presentations on major technical topics including storage capacity assessment, risk analysis, predictive modelling and storage associated with EOR.
