A Spirit of Innovation

From our first day in business, we have led the way in providing wellbore navigation services - introducing the world to the first downhole electronic steering tool for wellbore navigation in 1969. Now, with a global footprint reaching over 40 locations in more than 26 countries, SDI continues to push the boundaries of what’s possible across industries and in ever more complex projects and environments.

SDI is the only company to offer a complete navigation solution for the energy services sector that includes High Accuracy Gyro Survey, MWD, LWD, Magnetic Ranging Services and Cased Hole Solutions.

The culture of innovation and Industry First’s has established SDI as the leading independent provider of wellbore navigation and directional drilling services. The company’s range of products has greatly increased over recent years, due in part to continued focus on research and development.

SDI is the only company in the wellbore navigation/directional drilling business that builds all systems in-house, down to the sensor level.
