It inherited facilities of the National HydroCarbon Reserves Evaluation Centre NHREC), the Seismic Data Processing outfit (DPD) and the 2-D Seismic acquisition crews then known as Seismic Party Y. The functions of these former outfits were taken over by IDSL. IDSL is a service company that represents the NNPC in the service sector of the oil and gas industry.
SERVICES IDSL was set up to offer services in the upstream sector of the oil and gas industry.
These services include:

BUSINESS DIRECTION In order to overcome some obstacles in the past, IDSL went into joint venture relationship with reputable international service companies operating in Nigeria, relationships which have in a short while enabled IDSL to overcome those problems and put it on a competitive edge.
