More than 80 scientists, engineers, and technicians work in Scientific Drilling’s R&D centers in California, Texas, Germany, and Canada - designing, engineering, building, and manufacturing all of our directional drilling and wellbore navigation technologies.


Scientific Drilling is the only company in the wellbore navigation/directional drilling business that builds all systems in-house, down to the sensor level. The company’s innovative and aggressive technology development group is vital to our success.


Our technologies include state-of-the-art electronic sensors for downhole measurement. For example, applications include borehole surveying, wireline steering, MWD / LWD production logging, directional drilling, and more.

For instance, over 50 issued and pending patents are protected in our extensive portfolio of key technologies and services secured. Consequently, in the US, UK, and Canada. In addition to almost 50 years in business.

Our technologies are used on projects requesting precise performance. Furthermore, the Gulf of Mexico’s deep waters to the North Sea’s hostile northern waters. All the major shale performs in the USA. As unconventional and conventional drilling gets more challenging, Scientific Drilling International’s professional engineers improve at finding innovative, cost-effective solutions that enhance performance.



The majority of our products include 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.


Continuous evaluation and assessment methods offer practical engineering solutions to our most complex drilling problems. We constantly collaborate with top universities on drillstring model development, refinement, and data analytics for drilling optimization.

We utilize an extensive authentication of patented static/dynamic BHA analysis software. For example, surface and down-hole data and advanced modeling tools for down-hole component design. They provide more robust drilling systems capable of handling the most extreme environments.
