Pushing to the Top in Petroleum: Cotemar Industries

Deep in the heart of eastern Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo lies the city of Playa del Carmen, and it is here that the offshore rigging and petroleum company named Cotemar is headquartered.  The company began in 1979, and for 38 years they have been working their way to the top of the oil and gas world, both in Mexico and other locations across the

A great example of a specific technology move that exemplifies Cotemar’s efforts in these areas is their implementation of RFID tags to track offshore workers.  The company knew it could be more efficient and sensitive to its workers’ job satisfaction, so it looked in depth at worker safety, billing, and operational efficiency gains.  Along with efforts from American-based AeroScout, Cotemar decided to utilize wi-fi-based radio frequency identification technology.

Real-time Location System (RTLS) is another step in the right direction to keep up with and surpass industry leaders in the areas of tracking and managing assets and people.  This was used on four of Cotemar’s offshore housing vessels and made a huge difference, resulting in real-time visibility the company never had before.

I have witnessed this company being very interested in environmental sustainability and be at the forefront of that concern and movement, but I also have seen a concern in the area of employee sustainability and satisfaction.

Top management at Cotemar makes it a point to frequently interview and assess workers at all levels and in all positions, from out on the platforms on the rigs drilling for oil to in the offices taking care of H.R. duties or preparing meals in the dining halls.

Cotemar also has gotten involved with various charitable organizations and philanthropic efforts.  Within the last decade, they have started ties with major world hunger organizations, the Red Cross, and more than three charities for diseases such as cancer and diabetes.

Kudos to this oil company that has been able to maintain a nice relationship with its employees for almost four decades with its dedication and commitment to the oil and petroleum and gas industry.

Cotemar handles its workers’ food, transportation, and lodging needs.  Without a good employer/employee relationship, Cotemar would not be so successful, and they and their employees know that, so both want to walk positively into the future of the industry and their lives.
