This paper describes Phase I of the World Bank Group’s technical assistance project for the development of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS) in Mexico. Phase I, which was concluded in 2016, saw the completion of three studies: (1) a pre-feasibility study of a proposed post-combustion capture plant, (2) a review of state-of-the-art practices for combining carbon dioxide-enhanced oil recovery with geological storage of CO2 and (3) a study of the development of a CCUS regulatory framework. Phase 1 sets the groundwork for further CCUS development in Mexico per the country’s CCUS roadmap. The paper was presented at 13th International Conference on Greenhouse Gas Control Technologies in Lausanne, Switzerland.
