Latin Construction and Drilling at the forefront:
Jack-up platforms called LA SANTA MARIA and COVADONGA with an extraction capacity were placed in offshore operations in the Gulf of Mexico.
Mexico: Role Model in Geothermics
Mexico is the third highest producer of geothermics energy in the world, and the first in Latin America, due to its privileged geographical location. LATINA has developed 95% of its energy projects on geothermic technology throughout the Mexican territory.
Latina has two complete bases for cementing wells, located in Mexicali, Baja California, and Poza Rica, Veracruz, each of which is completely equipped with state-of-the-art technology.

Cerro Prieto, A Success Story
Through a public bidding process, Comisión Federal de Electricidad granted Latina a contract for the provision of steam for 3 geothermoelectric centrals from 1990 to 2000. During the implementation of this project, 32 wells were drilled and built, with an accumulated longitude of 75,850 m. Average construction times were of 60 days per well (2,371 m average per well).
The time of commissioning of the wells built was from 1 to 1.6 months. Repairs were made during the project, addressing them in an average time of 41 days, with a recovery of repaired wells of 81.25%.
From 1991 to 2000, the amount of steam provided was of 89’816,056.79-WV(Tons).
