HOUSTON – August, 2018 - Veretek achieved its 200th V-pump installation, with the installation taking place in a well in the Permian Basin.

Zach McCain, Veretek Director of Sales, stated, "Historically, conventional downhole pumps were considered consumables but the V-Pump is allowing the customer to classify downhole pumps as assets. This unit was pulled after 339 days for an electrical failure. We tested the used pumps and ran them back in the well. The ability of the V-Pump to handle the challenges of an unconventional well is unmatched."

According to Customer, "With a conventional ESP, there is absolutely ZERO chance that we would have been able to re-install the pumps after 339 days in this unconventional well."
