Company Profile

From its beginning, Socotherm has focused its efforts on obtaining solutions to complex problems, such as providing coating for pipes laid in the Andes at a height of 5,000m or laid more than 2,000m deep offshore in the Gulf of Mexico. These are regular events within Socotherm activities. Such challenges have contributed to Socotherm's prestige and recognition as the leader in the coating application field within the energy industry worldwide.

During the last years, Socotherm has exported its products to all the oil markets in the world and has participated in more than 4,000 projects for over 500 customers. The experience acquired in countless offshore projects in the Gulf of Mexico, North Sea, Brazil, West Africa and South East Asia on top of the participation in almost all the onshore Latin American pipelines position Socotherm among the few companies that can offer both deep water and onshore solutions.

Strict quality controls are performed in every step of all processes to assure that products perform as designed. This quality supervision is supported by the use of sophisticated full-scale instruments that simulate even more severe conditions than those the coatings will be exposed to during normal operation. Controls include corrosion, thermal, mechanical, hydraulic, biological and dynamic tests that recreate different operating conditions.

Socotherm has a sophisticated laboratory; this has enabled oil companies and laying contractors to modify and suit their engineering requirements to obtain significant cost reductions and maximum confidence in their large-scale investments.

Socotherm's worldwide reputation is built on leading rather than on applying technological change.

Based on customer´s requirements, Socotherm has developed many products that later have become industry benchmarks. Socotherm is customer-driven. The toughest goals it is exposed to are seen as opportunities to help the customer succeed and drive its industry forward.
