EMS manufactures and sells high viscosity pumps for oil & gas production applications. Its patented V-Pump™ is designed to replace conventional electrical submersible pumps (ESPs) as the preferred application by oil & gas operators. Conventional ESPs typically struggle in wells with heavy oil, high gas to oil ratios and high sand content resulting in poor lift, pump failure and well down time. The V-Pump™ has a wider operating range, is extremely solids tolerant and can be used through multiple production phases. The company is headquartered in Houston, Texas.
