The Passion of Diving

The CEO and owner Stéphane Troté was a former diver in the French Navy until 1991. This experience developed his deep passion for diving and he started his career as a commercial diver in Congo. After many years, when he became Petrodive owner, he also decided to give chance by training the first Congolese divers. 

From Africa to South America

In 2009, Stéphane Troté became the owner of TPSMI Group. 

In addition to maintaining our original offices in Gabon and Congo, TPSMI opens its Head office in Dubai in 2013. 

In 2018, TPSMI began operations in Trinidad and Tobago to meet the urgent needs for specialized oil & gas Contractors in Trinidad throughout entire Southern America. In 2019, TPSMI Group becomes PETRODIVE.
