Overview

The home office of The GasGun, Inc., is located in Clackamas, Oregon, a few miles southeast of Portland. We have established contractual relationships with wireline companies throughout the United States and across the world that, in turn, perform GasGun stimulation services for well owners. With over 30 trusted wireline companies spread across the US we are well positioned to serve the immediate needs of well owners.

The GasGun, Inc. (formerly J Integral Engineering) was formed in 1992, initially to provide engineering consulting services. In August 1994, we won a Small Business Innovation Research grant from the Department of Energy to develop, test, optimize, and commercialize the use of progressively burning solid propellant for the economical stimulation of oil and gas wells. The concept, initially conceived from a research study at Sandia National Laboratories in the early 1970’s, was shown to be feasible during Phase I of that grant. Phase II, which began in September 1995, concentrated on field testing and optimization of the design. With the success of the field trials, the GasGun became commercial in July 1998. The GasGun took a huge step forward in 2005 with the advancement of our hollow steel carrier design which greatly improved the field-ability of the tools as well as the consistency of positive results.

Early success with the GasGun in the Appalachian and Illinois Basins provided the impetus to expand the service throughout the U.S. and International markets.
