Cotemar is a Mexican company that provides technical and support services to oil companies operating in the Mexican waters and international waters. The energy-sector service company was founded in 1979. Over the years, the company has grown to be one of the leading providers of offshore services in the industry. Cotemar provides its services mainly to Petroleos Mexicanos, especially in its gas and oil drilling and producing operations.
The company’s determination to provide innovative services in the industry started as early as 1981. In that year, it acquired a barge, a ship, and a tag boat. The three vessels raised its standings in the industry and quickly propelled it into a market leader. With the addition of specialized vessels, Cotemar could now provide reliable material and personnel transporting services to its clients.
In 1985, a customer acquired its first rig. This platform provided the company with the chance to offer food and accommodation services to workers engaged in offshore activities. The rig ensured minimal wastage of time as workers could stay on the site comfortably. It also significantly lowered the expenses incurred by its clients.
With the desire to continue its domination, Cotemar acquired more vessels in 1988. The new vessels expanded the company’s capabilities. Cotemar could now provide various services such as catering & accommodation, personnel & material, and construction & maintenance. The new additions increased the number of the company’s assets to five rigs and three specialized vessels. These services enabled the company to increase its profitability margins.
With the increasing oil explorations in the Gulf of Mexico, the company saw the need to introduce Hibernia in 2002. This was the first rig to be acquired by Hibernia in the 21st century. More investments by the corporation followed ten years later when it started the construction of two semi-submersible rigs. COSCO built the platforms. In the same year, Cotemar introduced new specialized crane and maintenance vessels to its fleet. The vessels were to be used to transport solid and liquid materials. With the introduction of Atlantis, Neptuno, and two new submersible rigs, the company’s fleet has continued to expand.
The continuous growth of Cotemar has made the company one of the most attractive employers in Mexico. The corporation has recruited the services of over 8,000 talented employees. Frequently, Cotemar advertises for vacancies on its website. Through the online platform, Job seekers can apply for the positions that match their experiences and educational background. The company also provides training and internships to university students.
