WDI (Well Drilling Institute) is Pakistan’s First Petroleum Industry Training Institute in Private sector that was established in the year 2001 (approved by Sindh Board of Technical Education) and since then successfully offering different training programs and courses in Oil/Gas Exploration and Production Engineering.
The objective of WDI is to offer an educational and training platform for the youth of the Country who aspire to obtain the Petroleum Education for entering the most lucrative Oil/Gas Industry.
It is also a recognized fact that the growth in the existing training/educational facilities in Pakistan is not in stride with the growth in the field of Oil & Gas Exploration of the Country. We therefore thought that it would be right in order to establish an Institute for the young men of the Country, where they would be able to achieve education for career opportunities in the most promising Oil & Gas Industry of the Country.
It took two years of hard work to successfully launch the opening of WDI in October’ 2001 by offering our First Certificate program in Oil/Gas Exploration & Production Technology. The registration of WDI with SBTE (Sindh Board of Technical Education, Ministry of Technical Education) was pursued simultaneously till it materialized in 2002, and since then a specialized Certificate program of 6 months duration as well as, a specialized 1-year Diploma program has already been successfully completed. As we wanted to maintain the highest level of education therefore the teaching faculty for WDI was chosen from the elites of Pakistan’s leading Petroleum Institute’s & Technocrats of Oil & Gas Industry.
