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!
