Guardian Releases New Addressable Perforating Switch in EB Format

Guardian is pleased to announce that we have successfully completed the first stage of field trials of our new Addressable Fire Switch (AFS). The AFS is cost-effective, fully addressable, RF safe perforating switch designed to replace mechanical EB switches in gun systems from any manufacturer. The AFS system reduces costs and improves operational efficiency and safety through the unique ability to check every element of gun wiring, as well as each detonator or igniter, prior to running in hole.

The trials were undertaken in the North-East of the USA in collaboration with one of Guardian's Technology Partners - Allied Horizontal Wireline Services Inc. Allied - Horizontal's VP of Service Quality & Training, Sherrell Ezzell, commented 'We are delighted with the potential cost savings and wellsite efficient gains available with the AFS and are looking forward to working with Guardian in the future'.

The new AFS has been under development and rigorous testing for the last 12 months with Allied Horizontal and other Technology Partners fully involved throughout the development process to ensure that the product meets or exceeds the stringent safety, operational and cost requirements of the present-day oil field.

Guardian announces successful offshore deployment of its patented Select Fire Switch (SFS)

Guardian Global Technologies (Guardian) announced today the successful deployment of its Select Fire Switch (SFS™) technology offshore Trinidad.

Patrick Keenan, Guardian’s Chief Executive Officer, said,

“Since the beginning of the year, Tucker Energy Services has run the Guardian SFS successfully on four jobs offshore Trinidad. In one instance, for a Major Operator, they were able to fire a Titan Jet Cutter through a Welltec 3 1/8” tractor using a combination of Guardian’s Ballistics Delivery System (BDS™) and Select Fire Switch (SFS). This is yet more proof that Guardian technology enables our clients to safely and successfully deploy ballistics devices in difficult environments. We are continuing to develop technologies that will further enhance our Ballistics Delivery System in the future.”

Guardian’s client commented, “We were successful in using Guardian’s SFS. All worked just fine. It’s a proven system.” He added, “Let me thank you for all the support you have provided to our company. It has been tremendous and we greatly appreciate this.”
