Cotemar – a Mexican company servicing the oil and gas industry of Mexico – is a leader in its line of work. The Cotemar Company has been in business since early 1979 – it has been operating and expanding for 48 years. The company has been working steadily with another giant in the gas and oil sector – the Petroleos Mexicanos, also known as Pemex. The two organizations have been working side by side ever since Cotemar joined the industry back in 1979. Presently, the services that Cotemar offer are in the segments of Specialized Vessel and Maritime Support, Modernization, Construction, Accommodation and Catering, and Maintenance. Cotemar has integrated a handful of methods and pieces of technology in order to achieve higher levels of efficiency.
When Cotemar came to be in 1979, it was a provider only for energy sector of Mexico. In the beginning, it only offered accommodation and catering. Cotemar started expanding rapidly very early on in their professional career. Only after two years of being in business, the company underwent a significant change in services and re-directed towards the gas and oil sector of Mexico and started providing transportation for the employees and materials. In 1985, Cotemar had a growth spurt and came into the possession of their first rig. That enabled them to include catering in their services. In 1988 the company was able to provide most of the services they offer today as well because they acquired three specialized vessels and three rigs that could operate at the same time. The year of 2002 proved to be a highly significant year for the development of Cotemar when they, after the productive period of growth, obtained ownership of their first Hibernia. Cotemar’s next big company expansion happened a decade later in 2012 when they invested in a new specialized crane. Cotemar also added a number of maintenance vessels to their service fleet. After Cotemar’s 2012 expansion they started being able to offer transportation services for liquid materials as well, in addition to solid materials. In the year 2013 Cotemar became able to start the construction process of their brand new accommodation rig named Atlantis. In the year 2015 the company expanded again and ventured into the world of the onshore upstream sector. Last year, 2016, was quite a successful one for Cotemar, too. A subsidiary of the company was a winner of the Cuichapa Poniente area contract award for its work on a project. The Cotemar Company has experienced a drastic increase in the number of employees. Currently the company has up to 10 00 employees.
