Addressable Gamma CCL

The Owen Instrumentation Addressable Gamma-CCL (AGC) is designed to be addressed and controlled from surface using our operator friendly software system that automatically identifies the Owen Instrumentation tools and Select Fire Switch (SFS) modules in the string.

The AGC tool offers a combined, compact sensor designed for use as part of a correlation string. The combined device provides for simpler rig-up and greater reliability through a reduced number of mechanical and electronic connections.

The AGC has a crystal gamma sensor and a very compact powered CCL.

The complete system has undergone independent third party assessment to confirm that it meets the stringent requirements of API RP 67 code of practice for safe perforating operations.

The software package also controls all the other Owen Instrumentation tools in the string and ensures that engineers do not have to switch between multiple systems. This reduces delays and confusion during perforating operations.

Product features

  • Powered CCL design gives far cleaner collar detection than traditional unpowered CCLs.
  • Shorter design allows more guns to be run in the string.
  • Works with Sentinel software package to calculate stop depth for each perforating gun to ensure guns are not fired off depth.
  • Fully compatible with Owen Instrumentation’s Select Fire Perforating Switch.

Product Application

  • Where critical depth control is required.
  • Simplify rig up and work flow for field engineer by only having to use a single integrated system
