Drones enhance the productivity of oil and gas facilities, reduced maintenance and repair requirements, and facilitate easier and more streamlined exploration - all of which creates a more efficient and environmentally-friendly sites.
Inspections of assets such as well sites, pipelines, storage tanks, and offshore platforms.
Drones can be employed around flare stacks, oil rigs and along miles of pipeline for monitoring of leaks or gas emissions, detecting spills, corrosion, heat.
Looking for cracks and corrosion on rafters, walls, and roof sections of storage tanks during integrity-assessment turnaround, by performing close visual inspection beyond line of sight.
