PID Bit

Based in Houston, Texas, Particle Drilling Technologies (PDT) is an oilfield service and technology company that is developing an advanced drilling technology to be offered to the energy industry. PDT was formed to commercialize its patented Particle Impact Drilling (PID) system that is designed to provide a radical increase in penetration rates for drilling oil and gas wells, particularly through deep hard and abrasive zones or other difficult-to-drill formations.

The purpose of the system is to improve drilling efficiencies and significantly improve overall economics to the energy industry in regions around the world where slow drilling rates result in high costs to find and develop oil and gas reserves.

PDT’s role in the energy industry is to dramatically improve drilling efficiency; thereby making new energy reserves economically available through a significant reduction in finding and development costs.
