We are a collaborative team working together to make a difference around the world. Scientific Drilling International (SDI) is a place where your contributions are noticed.

Since our inception in 1969, Scientific Drilling International has become a leading provider of high-accuracy wellbore positioning and directional drilling services by investing in our two most important assets, our talented team and innovative technologies.

We are one of the few companies in the industry to build our systems in-house, down to the sensor level. We like to take the same approach with our people, supporting them through development programs to achieve career and business goals together.

As a service company to the industry, at Scientific Drilling, we never forget that we are in the People business. As such, we are just as committed to developing our people as our technology.
