Abstract

In the present work, information concerning 1,110 oil and gas fields compiled by integrating different databases is presented through
different maps. This new database contains an additional 42% of data with respect to the oil land registry of the National Hydrocar-
bons Commission. With the information of database and the data of reserves certified as of January 1, 2016, we produced 18 maps
that visualize the geographical location of the fields discovered in Mexico, the distribution of cumulative hydrocarbon production,
the remaining reserves, and the original volume of oil and gas in its 1P, 2P and 3P classification. Through these maps it is possible
to identify the areas with more intense exploration and development and the location of the fields with the largest original volume.
The maps show the evolution of the exploitation of the fields and their current states; they also identify the remaining areas for
exploration and production.
