Rich in oil & gas, Mexico derives much of its revenue from oil production, which now stands at 2.2 million barrels a day. This is less than 10 years ago, but the recent liberalization of the energy market in Mexico is opening up excellent prospects.

"Faced with the natural decline of the main fields, and the need to meet the population's growing energy needs, the country took the initiative of opening its market to foreign companies" says Gerardo Sanchez Gonzalez, Managing Director of Naviera Bourbon Tamaulipas. The objective? Partnering with Majors or local and regional players, in order to develop deep offshore and gas extraction.

It's enough to create new opportunities for offshore oil & gas maritime service companies, such as Naviera Bourbon Tamaulipas. "More projects, and also more logistical services and more vessels! Our company is equipped to meet the new needs of our historical customer Pemex, as well as those companies which soon will be entering the Mexican market," says Gerardo Sanchez Gonzalez.

UP TO BOURBON STANDARDS OF QUALITY AND SAFETY

Created in Mexico in 2005, Naviera Bourbon Tamaulipas operates a comprehensive, modern fleet, the most recent in the country, with an average vessel age of only 5.8 years. "Our fleet contains 25 vessels, including one AHTS and two Bourbon Liberty 150 PSVs, as well as personnel transport, fire-fighting, and pollution control vessels," says Gerardo Sanchez Gonzalez. Most feature diesel-electric propulsion, a pledge of cost optimization for clients, who can also rely on the availability of rock-solid vessels. "We are organized to ensure the continuity of our operations, thanks to our stock of spare parts," he adds.

This way, the company benefits from BOURBON standards, not just technically but also in terms of safety. "If BOURBON is a world leader in offshore services, it's also thanks to its safety management system, which enables us to go beyond the requirements of our clients," says Gerardo Sanchez Gonzalez.
