Core Lab Acquires Guardian Global Technologies

On September 25th, Core Lab acquired the shares of Guardian Global Technologies, a company based in Pyle, Wales in the United Kingdom. Guardian, with over 20 years of experience, is a technologically sophisticated designer and manufacturer of downhole instrumentation utilized by international oil and gas operators for well completions. Guardian’s downhole technologies are designed to systemize, simplify, automate, and de-risk the deployment of perforating systems.


Guardian’s proprietary and patented product portfolio will be integrated with the Owen Oil Tools Division of Core Lab. The combined product offering fully complements Owen’s integrated approach to perforating oil and gas wells, allowing us to provide a proprietary top to bottom perforating tool string. Guardian’s innovative Ballistic Delivery System (“BDS”) and newly released addressable switch supports a portfolio of differentiated products including addressable/ballistic release tools, cablehead tension, shot detection and orienting systems that provide customers the ability to manipulate the perforating tool string for greater accuracy and operating efficiency. Owen fully expects Guardian’s addressable downhole capabilities, combined with Owen’s perforating systems, to provide unique product solutions focused on wellsite and reservoir productivity.

Guardian Wins 2018 SPE - Offshore Achievement Award

On the 21st of March, Guardian was Honoured to be the proud winner of the 2018 SPE - Offshore Achievement Awards 'Emerging Technology Award'. This was in recognition of the success that our cilents have had with our Oriented Perforating System which incorporates the Metal Anomaly Tool (MAT) that can detect cable behind casing and orients perforating guns accordingly all in the one run saving time and reducing risk at the wellsite.

This is the second time that Guardian has been winners in this category, as we won in the 2014 for the development of our Select Fire Switch (SFS) which is a fully RF safe addressable perforating switch.

On behalf of everyone at Guardian we would like to take this opportunity to say "Thank You!" to the OAA Committee and everyone who has sent messages of congratulations. It is an honour to even be considered for such an award, let alone win against such stiff competition!

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.
