Precise Drilling Components Ltd. (PDC) is an innovative, experienced designer and manufacturer of industry-leading down-hole drilling tools for the oil & natural gas, pipeline and utilities sectors. Based in Calgary, Alberta, PDC ships its products worldwide.

We are a premium provider of high-performance drilling tools. Using sophisticated machinery and cutting-edge ideas and techniques, we develop and manufacture customized in-house solutions covering a wide variety of downhole tool applications, supporting mainstream oil & natural gas and horizontal & directional drilling (HDD) operations. Our customers value PDC’s innovative thinking, individualized approach and timely response.

PDC builds:

  • The world’s fastest fixed-cutter hole openers – our HydraMAX
    line – which can drill at much greater rates of penetration, with much larger single-step passes, thereby outperforming conventional rotary cone openers;
  • The world’s most powerful mud motor, with an incredible 70,000 foot-pounds of torque, introduced in late summer 2012;
  • The Torpedo lost circulation tool;
  • A full line of fixed-cutter drillbits for deeper applications (we also carry tri-cone bits made by a top-quality manufacturer in the United States); and
  • Tanks, subs, stabilizers, barrels and core equipment including core bits, core barrels and all other coring tool parts.

PDC’s continuous focus is to innovate and create solutions to specific customer needs, so that we may deliver the most performance-driven drilling tools available. We have complete R&D, engineering, manufacturing and repair/overhaul capability, including computer numerical control (CNC) driven machinery and robotic welding, and our processes utilize finite element analysis and computational fluid dynamics.

We maintain a stringent in-house quality control system, backed by our recent completion of ISO 9001/2008 certification.

With the introduction of our line of HydraMAX hole openers, PDC is remaining true to its key goal and is setting the stage for change throughout the industry.

At PDC we understand that there are many necessary links in a long chain of events that must take place in order to bring your project to successful completion. We appreciate the many challenges our customers in the drilling industry face regarding risk, complexity and time.
