SDI has a long and successful history of designing, engineering, building, and manufacturing all our directional drilling technology products in-house.



Scientific Drilling International has a long and successful history of designing, engineering, building, and manufacturing all our in-house directional drilling technology products.

Our employees who produce innovative and aggressive technology are vital to our success. As unconventional and conventional drilling gets more complex, our engineers get better at finding innovative, cost-effective solutions that optimize performance.

As a result, these technologies include state-of-the-art electronic sensors for downhole measurement. Applications include borehole surveying, wireline steering, MWD / LWD production logging, directional drilling, and more.

For example, our technologies are applied to projects for precise performance due to their advanced equipment. All of the significant shales perform in the USA, from the Gulf of Mexico’s deep waters to the hostile northern waters of Norway.

Above all, the majority of our products consist of 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.



Scientific Drilling International (SDI) provides quality assistance to several key service sectors. We are centered primarily around well placement services and production logging services. Therefore, serving the upstream oil and gas and global geothermal and mining industries.

Our well placement services involve wellbore trajectory planning, engineering analysis, directional & measurement services, and wellbore survey services. For example, the drilling and measurement section typically involves measurement-while-drilling (MWD), logging-while-drilling (LWD), and directional drilling. These services can be provided individually or together.

Scientific Drilling also provides Production Logging services to oil & gas, mining, and geothermal industries. The most cost-effective service is Production logging. However, the compact service can be quickly assembled to reach remote locations around the globe.

As a result, we are committed to helping our customers drill with increased safety and efficiency. Consequently, highlighting the details affecting drilling performance.

Drilling Motors

Scientific Drilling International designs, engineers, manufactures, and operates one of the industry's leading drilling mud motor portfolios.

Rotary Steerable Systems

This innovative system not only addresses reliability and economic concerns but also enhances efficiency, leading to the creation of smoother wellbores. The HALO system is tailored to optimize drilling operations in the unique conditions of North American land drilling, offering improved performance and reliability.

Measurement While Drilling (MWD)

Scientific Drilling International is a leading global provider of highly accurate Measurement-While-Drilling (MWD) services. With over twenty years of in-house engineering and manufacturing excellence, our MWD systems have proven reliability and cost-effectiveness worldwide.

Logging While Drilling (LWD)

Scientific Drilling’s innovative [LWD] technology provides a reliable, tailored, and cost-effective solution for the industry’s wellbore placement and geological challenges.

Wellbore Surveying

The discipline of wellbore positioning in the oil and gas industry was born to manage risk, which is still its primary function today. While sometimes this risk is only economical, new techniques used on both onshore and offshore wellbore design have made wellbore positioning a safety-critical activity.

Magnetic Ranging Services

Scientific Drilling provides a comprehensive suite of high-accuracy Magnetic Ranging services, offering the utmost drilling precision and cost-effectiveness available in the industry today.

Cased Hole Services

Scientific Drilling's Cased Hole Services provides reliable, fit-for-purpose technologies. For instance, for assessing well integrity, determining flow profiles, and evaluating reservoir saturation. Therefore, our technology deploys for mass data acquisition requirements in oil & gas and geothermal wells worldwide.

Technical Services

Scientific Drilling International focuses on delivering a wide array of solutions, targeting the evolving challenges of the global drilling market. SDI recognizes the growing demands for drilling efficiency, greater access to real-time information as well as risk mitigation associated with accurate wellbore placement.
