Cotemar is Mexico’s largest petroleum services provider. With almost 10,000 total employees, it’s also one of the country’s major employers. Cotemar was founded in 1979, right at the start of the Mexican oil boom, to service the oil rigs owned and, until that time, operated by Pemex, Mexico’s state oil monopoly. Over the next 38 years, Cotemar developed deep expertise, acquiring state-of-the-art assets and some of the best engineering talent in the world. Today, Cotemar is a world-class oil services contractor capable of carrying out nearly every crucial task of the crude oil extraction process, from well head to refinery.
Three companies, one vision
Cotemar has three principal subsidiaries. They are Cocinas del Mar, Apoyo Logistico Marino and Sipsa. These subsidiaries offer some of the best employment opportunities in Mexico and employees often stay on board with Cotemar until retirement. Let’s take a brief look at the types of work these subsidiaries’ employees carry out on a typical day.
Cocinas del Mar caters to Mexico’s oil rigs. Its employees are tasked with providing five-star-hotel level service to the men and women who keep Mexico’s prime movers of oil up and running 24/7. They also provide laundry, maid service and even medical care.
Apoyo Logistico Marino is Cotemar’s logistics arm. Its workers pilot barges, ships and helicopters servicing Mexico’s oil platforms. It has over 30 vessels, doing everything from transporting crude to supplying personnel. Its employees are professional seamen and are prepared to get the job done, even under the harshest conditions.
Sipsa is Cotemar’s engineering and construction arm. Its employees include some of the most highly trained professionals in the maritime trades including deep sea welders, underwater inspectors, industrial engineers and ship builders.
