First Reserve has agreed to acquire the integrity maintenance platform of EMS USA, Inc., subject to customary closing conditions.
Serving customers throughout the midstream and downstream value chain, EMS provides a comprehensive suite of solutions that includes integrity maintenance, cathodic protection, measurement and automation, O&M compliance, GIS, and control room operations. The company’s solutions help manage risk, enhance safety and environmental best practices and compliance, and properly maintain the integrity of pipeline and facility assets throughout their life cycles.
“EMS has an excellent track record of performance, in our view, and we believe it is well-positioned to benefit from increased industry activity around integrity-based infrastructure services that are not directly levered to commodity prices,” Jeff Quake and Gary Reaves, Managing Directors at First Reserve, said. “First Reserve has a long history of supporting high-quality platforms in the energy infrastructure services space, where the focus on safety and environmental integrity makes asset maintenance and repair essential. We are excited to partner with the talented team at EMS and look forward to supporting the company in its next phase of growth.”
