By SDI, Worldwide Provider of Drilling Services
SDI has a long and successful history of designing, engineering, building, and manufacturing all of our directional drilling technology products in-house. (See: A History of Firsts)
Having an innovative and aggressive technology development group within SDI is vital to our success. As unconventional and conventional drilling gets more and more difficult, SDI professional engineers get better and better at finding innovative cost-effective solutions that optimize performance.
These technologies include state-of-the-art electronic sensors for downhole measurement in such applications as borehole surveying, wireline steering, MWD / LWD production logging, directional drilling and more.
Due to their advanced instrumentation, our technologies are utilized on projects calling for precise performance, from the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the hostile northern waters of Norway; and all the major shale plays in the USA.
Borehole surveying instruments (both gyroscopic and magnetic), MWD (measurement while drilling) / LWD (logging while drilling) systems, rotary steerable technologies, innovative drill motor designs and production logging systems comprise the bulk of our products.
