Cotemar Scaling the Heights of the Oil and Shipping Industry in Mexico

The CNN affiliate news site, Expansion, featured the silent revolution focusing on the achievement of two private companies that received tenders amid the Mexican government’s oil exploration works that will boost the country’s economy.


The Mexican company, Cotemar, specializes in petroleum, specialized shipping, maritime services, and offshore construction and maintenance. It has managed to maintain over three decades of commitment and a good standing with the government within the oil industry.


Cotemar places a high emphasis on their commitment to employees. Without proper human resource relations, the company would be struggling to stay afloat. The construction services in Cotemar cannot function properly without the oil field crews.


Cotemar has illustrated outstanding results through staff support, providing all the necessary resources and amenities required for their welfare and performance standards while working with the Mexican company. Continuous training is also of utmost importance to the employees who are readily available when under a contract with the company.


Cotemar’s work is a big boost for Mexico’s economy. Although Mexico’s untapped territories may create a buzz for the demand of oil reserves, the joint venture between the two oil giants with the government shouldn’t cause any alarm because similar collective contracts in other countries like the U.S. have previously worked this way numerous times.


Cotemar has more than 30 years of experience offering oil and gas services to Petroleum Mexicanos (Pemex). The company continually evolves to broaden services throughout the oil industry chain value, integrating process equipment and hiring highly skilled workers to deliver high performance set requirements.


The integrated company serves through three strategic areas that incorporate specialized services according to market segments in construction, maintenance, production of specialized vessels, maritime accommodation, support, and catering.


They also provide modern rigs and offshore processing services for their customers such as prefabrication, installation, and operations backed by submersible rigs. Food and lodging service is provided offshore. The services include ready meals, laundry work, and maintenance of common areas such as beds in the cabins.




Cotemar was founded in 1979. They have since grown to one of the best offshore service providers in the oil & gas industry. Cotemar has strengthened its position as a market leader with new fleets of specialized vessels to convey materials and personnel.


In 2012 cotemar began manufacturing two submersible rigs with COSCO. They also added specialized crane and maintenance ships to transport materials. They have since grown to add other semi-submersible rigs to their fleet in 2016, as well as venture into the onshore upstream sector. In the same year, Servicios a la Industria Petrolera de Mexico was awarded the Cuichapa Poniente regional contract in Moloaca, Veracruz, Mexico; by the Comision Nacional de Hidrocarburos.
