Team & Technologies

Innovation and people

Since our establishment in 1969, Scientific Drilling International has become a leading provider of high-accuracy wellbore positioning and directional drilling services. As a result, we are 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. Right down to the sensor level. This is the same approach we like to take with our people. For example, we support them through development programs to achieve career and business goals together.

As a service company, we always remember that we are in the people business. We are just as committed to developing our people as our technology.
