Abstract

Disclosed embodiments include a method and apparatus for dropping a ball in a tool string. One example embodiment is a downhole ball drop tool that releases an activation ball in response to a downlink signal provided from the surface. The ball drop tool is provided as a part of a tool string. A variety of tools connected in a tool string may have a ball seat for receiving an activation ball dropped from the ball drop tool. Once the ball has engaged the ball seat, fluid pressure can be increased in the tool string to activate a mechanism in a downhole tool.
