Paris, June 15, 2020 – Created in 2008, Altea Resources is an expert in technical assistance. It has, for the past 12 years, supported predominantly oil & gas operators and their subcontractors in the recruitment and mobilization of high-qualified personnel on projects in Africa, Middle East and Latin America regions. With its technical expertise in the energy sector, and its knowledge and experience in sourcing qualified profiles, Altea Resources strengthens its services in the renewable energy sector and becomes Altea Energy.
Altea Energy – a team of experts for the worldwide energy sector
Recognized for over 10 years as an expert in sourcing and mobilizing technical profiles in oil and gas drilling, Altea Energy has supported dozens of companies, from Supermajors to Independents and Service Companies, and recruited, contracted and mobilized to site several thousand consultants for its clients. In addition to its historic activity in Oil & Gas, Altea Energy also supports Renewable Energy producers (wind, solar, bioenergy and hydroelectricity), and wishes to strengthen its position in this market.
“Our essential asset is our technical expertise, as well as our vision of customer relationships. The people, the quality of service and the performance of our processes are the three pillars of our operating model. They guarantee the satisfaction of our clients and the commitment of our consultants every day. Technical expertise is a strategic topic which has led us to recruit engineers specialized in complex fields – such as drilling, well integrity and HSE – in order to provide the best service possible to our clients,” explains Nicolas Kotliar, Founder & General Manager, Altea Energy.
Altea Energy – a responsive and reliable partner
Altea Energy is a human-sized company, where the shareholders are also the operational managers in direct contact with customers in the countries of operation. This shareholders’ involvement guarantees Altea Energy’s clients the responsiveness and reliability that they need for their projects.
“We operate in a sector where clients not only need a competent and responsive partner in the selection of the right profile, but also a reliable partner in all local administrative follow-up. Our comprehensive knowledge of local regulations and formalities guarantees our customers that the consultant is deployed on time on site with their work permit and all the necessary authorizations. We understand and are fully aware of the financial and human challenges that our clients face. A delay or a missing authorization would have far-reaching security impacts. We do not allow ourselves any laxity, and when necessary we even accompany our consultants to the client’s site”, continues Paul Piedras, Vice President Sales & Operations, Altea Energy.
Altea Energy – a responsible player committed locally
Altea Energy has been working for several years on its CSR and HSE policies, conscious, like its clients, of the need to be a responsible player.
“We have chosen to have offices in our countries of operation. Our local teams can thus create a strong relationship with our consultants and local administrations. Our values are shared within each of our subsidiaries. Integrity, equal opportunity and respect are part of the group’s DNA. The safety of our teams, as well as of our consultants, is also a major concern, which has led us to recruit an HSE manager internally to ensure the rigorous implementation of our HSE policy”, explains Armand Pasteur, Founder & President, Altea Energy.
“We are also very concerned about the well-being of our employees and our consultants. We encourage local recruitment, and we invest in the training of our teams. We are also committed to pay our consultants very quickly, far ahead of the industry sector’s average. Our consultants are mobilized on remote sites away from their families for weeks and often in difficult working conditions. It is our duty to make this time as comfortable and trouble-free as possible and to always be available to support them as best we can”, concludes Nicolas Kotliar, General Manager, Altea Energy.
In 2020 Altea Energy further strengthened its services to the Oil & Gas sector with a Well Integrity offering, a service which is part of its CSR and HSE policy, respectful of environmental impacts.
