[TechUkraine & GIZ – UAmachinery] Discovery Drilling Equipment – one of the biggest global machine-building companies of drilling rigs production

Could you imagine that one of the biggest global machine-building companies of drilling rigs production works in Ukraine and has a 100-years history of global expansion?

Meet Discovery Drilling Equipment (DDE) – a UK company registered in London with engineering and project management based in the UK and US, and two facilities located in Ukraine – in the Lviv region. Founded in 2006 by Andrew Zagorodnyuk and Mark Flenery, today the company’s products work on 5 continents for global leading drilling contractors and oil companies: Shell, bp, Chevron, WDI, Petroleum Development Oman – PDO, and many others.

Discovery Drilling Equipment provides high-level product and service groups:

  • New drilling and well service rigs, either land or mobile;
  • Wide range of rig components, either structural, mechanical, or electrical;
  • Extensive field service support;
  • Engineering services;
  • Rig refurbishment and modernization advice and project management.
Since 2008 the DDE Engineering Services have been designing with the help of 3D CAD Modeling with Autodesk Inventor™ and Autodesk AutoCAD™ using 3D models for computer simulations in a wide variety of practical contexts, such as:
  • The behavior of structures under stress and other conditions;
  • Forecasting the strength of structures and mechanisms of their destruction;
  • Design of complex systems.
Andrew Zagorodnyuk, CEO of DDE: “Although, in any case, engineering will remain in Ukraine, which, in my opinion, can save Ukraine because we have highly qualified engineers and this is an asset that has huge potential.”
