The Institute of Drilling Technology (IDT) was set up in 1978 at Dehradun to tackle the immense challenges of Oil & Gas well drilling operations. Over the years, with the services of dedicated, efficient & experienced workforce the Institute has emerged as a "Center Of excellence" in the fields of R&D, technology induction and training. It provides its techno-economic expertise & solutions to various field problems faced by various services of ONGC with the ultimate objective to promote cost effective E&P activities of the company. The strategic advantage of amalgamating the fruits of R&D with the enriching training elements has increased its efficacy.
