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.”

Guardian announces first commercial run of its proprietary Addressable Cablehead Tension Tool (ACT™)

Guardian Global Technologies (Guardian) announced today the successful commercial deployment of its Addressable Cablehead Tension Tool (ACT™) in the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania. As an integral component in Guardian’s Ballistics Delivery System (BDS™), the ACT monitors downhole compression and tension loads during “pump-down” perforating operations in oil and gas wells.  The tool provides a better understanding of how conditions downhole are affecting the tool string, and enables operators to maximise pump-down rates whilst avoiding the expense of having to fish for a perforating string blown off the cable.

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

“The successful deployment of the ACT in a Marcellus horizontal well by one of our major clients is a significant step forward in Guardian’s goal of defining the field-of-play for Ballistics Delivery Systems in North America. Guardian has introduced a tool that enables our clients to safely and successfully deploy their perforating guns in pump-down operations by better understanding downhole conditions in real-time. We are continuing to develop technologies that will further enhance our Ballistics Delivery System in the future.”
