The Use of Drones in the Oil and Gas Industry Proves to be very valuable
Useful in Upstream Systems, Midstream Infrastructure and Downstream facilities, a drone or UAV equipped with thermal imaging or optical gas imaging can quickly and safely locate problem spots or inefficiencies. High resolution images and video of plants, platforms and pipelines can be collected quickly. This is especially beneficial for infrastructure inspection in hard-to-reach locations.
- Greatly enhanced leak detection ability.
- Safer and faster inspections by minimizing the use of cranes, scaffolding and helicopters.
- Inspecting flare stacks while operating with the use of drones equipped with thermal or gas imaging can help spot issues earlier.
- Minimize downtime by avoiding the need for shutting down equipment for routine facility inspections.
