According to Ali Daqayeqi, a sum of 654 meters of exploration diamond drilling was also conducted in the said 12 months by the NIDC, Shana reported.
Referring to the indigenization of the necessary equipment and machinery for directional and horizontal drilling operations in the country, the official said a number of basic parts and equipment were produced in Iran.
“This was achieved as a result of a synergy between the company’s experts and the new technology-based firms of the country,” he added.
After the US reimposition of sanctions against Iran, indigenizing the know-how for the manufacturing of parts and equipment applied in different industrial sectors is one of the major strategies that Iran has been following up to attain self-reliance and nullify the sanctions.
Oil, gas, and petrochemical industries have outstanding performances in this field by indigenizing the technology for manufacturing many parts and equipment that were previously imported.
Among different sectors of the said industries, drilling could be considered a prominent example in this regard.
