Cotemar is Determined to Change the Fate of Mexican Oil Industry

Cotemar, a major oil and gas servicing firm in Mexico, is on a mission to change the fate of country’s oil industry. For a long time, there was a stagnation in the sector considering the lack of innovation in it. For many years, only state-owned firm, Pemex, was allowed to do oil exploration and refining. This created a monopoly in the Mexican oil industry, which is the major contributors of country’s income. The non-aggressive strategy of Pemex also paid costly for the country along with inefficient exploring and refining processes. These resulted to a complete retardation of business, industry, and the economy of the country.

 

 

Finally, the Mexican government decided to open the doors to private players and called for their bids in tenders. A number of petroleum servicing firms including Cotemar shortlisted for the auction, and the country is expecting an acceleration in the number of barrels per day and business. Since servicing companies like Cotemar is known for innovation and quality service, the industry also expects that Pemex would be forced to compete with new players who were once its servicing firms. Pemex is expected to go for innovation and change in strategy to be aggressive in acquiring the business and capturing markets. If all these happens, it would be a journey back to the golden days of the country and its oil industry.

 

 

Cotemar is founded in the year 1979, to offer specialized vessels and food and accommodation services to the oil industry players. Considering there were no other major players, Pemex was its single client in the country. The firm slowly grew in the market, acquired its first rig in 1985, and increased its fleet size. In 2016, the company entered into oil exploration and refining business when the subsidiary of Cotemar, Servicios de Extracción Petrolera Lifting de México S.A. de C.V, acquired Cuichapa Poniente area. The firm wants to give world-class and sustainable energy services solutions in the oil industry by respecting the environment and ensuring the safety.

 

 

Currently, the company offers three types of services, namely Construction, modernization, maintenance, and engineering; Specialized Maritime Support Vessels; and Accommodation & Catering. Due to the world-class and efficient services it offers, the firm has won a number of certification from various industrial bodies. It is an ISO 9001: 2008 firm for its business activities being effective. Cotemar also won the International Air Pollution Prevention Certificate from International Safety Management for its maritime safety activities.

George Soros is the right’s most formidable political opponent

George Soros has become famous the world over as one of the greatest investors in history. After starting his own hedge fund in 1972, George Soros has gone on to rack up 25 percent returns per annum over a period of greater than 45 years. This has placed him on the list of the richest people in the entire world, with his net worth recently estimated at more than $25 billion. Throughout his career, Soros has been a true investor, making almost the entirety of his personal fortune from his own adroit investments in the stock market. This remarkable feat has quite possibly not been replicated by anyone else alive today, making Soros one of the undisputed greatest investors in the history of the stock market.

But all of this winning is not unique merely to Soros’ monetary pursuits. Throughout his life, Georeg Soros has always been an extremely competitive individual, getting outstanding grades in high school as well as in college. He has always had a deep fascination with the study of philosophy, leading a life, in practice, which is a case study in how a man can live according to his own principles. Soros has always put his own personal worldview before all other considerations, particularly the acquisition of personal wealth.

In fact, when Soros was first started out, after having graduated from the London School of Economics, his only goal in life was to earn and save approximately a half a million dollars in today’s money, in order to completely dedicate the rest of his life to the study of philosophy and the elaboration of his own philosophical treatises. Needless to say, this is a highly unusual course for somebody to take who ultimately ended up being one of the most successful businessmen in the recent history of the world. The vast majority of Soros’ plutocratic peers knew from a very young age that the one and only passion they had in life was the acquisition of personal wealth. For Soros, it was precisely the opposite.

It was only slowly, after taking the helm of his own hedge fund, that Soros begin to realize the immense good that could come from the acquisition of phenomenal amounts of wealth. Soros began to view the acquisition of wealth not as a primary goal but as a way in which he could then use that wealth to affect change throughout the United States and the rest of the world.

Soros had long made a very close study of philosophy, particularly the works of his old philosophy professor, Karl Popper. Reading Popper’s seminal work for the first time, ‘The Open Society and Its Enemies’, was a landmark intellectual event in Soros is life. Soros was so moved by this work that he ultimately named his main philanthropic organization for it, The Open Society Foundations.
