Oil and gas drilling is a unique industry. Drilling involves heavy portable equipment, unique sophisticated instrumentation, and combines a number of specialty suppliers, scientists, engineers, technicians, and sub-contractor parties with special skills. And the drilling operation must go on around the clock. Equipment development must keep up with the deeper and directionally drilled wells, on-shore, off-shore, and in marshes, in oil patches worldwide. 

There are oil patch suppliers devoted to developing advanced equipment for each phase of the drilling enterprise. This is a major part of the effort. It involves considerable Intellectual Property issues.
