OIL & GAS

Detailed data collection for reduced downtime

Drone technology in the oil and gas industry offers aerial surveillance for infrastructure inspection, leak detection, and maintenance, enhancing safety, efficiency, and environmental compliance in challenging and remote areas.

Conventional oil and gas inspections face logistical hurdles, high costs, and time-consuming processes. Drones enable rapid response to emergencies, accessing remote and hazardous locations, and capturing valuable data while improving safety and efficiency.

Improve Efficiency

Drones play a pivotal role in enhancing operational efficiency in the oil and gas sector. They enable swift problem resolution by quickly identifying and addressing asset issues while simultaneously maintaining ongoing operations. This capability minimises downtime, reduces disruptions, and helps companies maintain their production schedules.

Reduce Risk

One of the most compelling advantages of drones in the industry is their ability to access hazardous or hard-to-reach areas. By deploying drones for inspections in these challenging environments, the need for human inspectors to enter dangerous locations is greatly reduced. This not only enhances safety but also mitigates the risks associated with human exposure to potentially life-threatening situations.

Data Accuracy

Drones equipped with advanced sensors, cameras, and imaging technologies capture high-quality data with remarkable precision. This wealth of data includes detailed visual information, thermal imaging, and even LiDAR scans. Such data is invaluable for conducting thorough inspections, environmental monitoring, and asset management. The accuracy and efficiency of data collection significantly expedite analysis and decision-making processes, ultimately leading to improved operational outcomes.

Aids Environmental Stewardship

In addition to their primary functions, drones contribute to environmental stewardship in the oil and gas industry. They are instrumental in tracking emissions, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations, and monitoring the impact of operations on the surrounding ecosystem. By providing real-time environmental data, drones help companies proactively address environmental concerns and minimise their ecological footprint.

Cutting-Edge Technology

LiDAR Maps

Drones with LiDAR can perform rapid and highly accurate data collection. Its ability to provide a dense sample of surface data proves particularly beneficial, significantly enhancing inspection accuracy.

Zoom Camera

Drones enhance visibility, ensuring detailed, safe, and efficient examination of assets. These drones reduce costs by eliminating the need for human access to elevated or hazardous areas. Additionally, they can follow preplanned routes for systematic inspections, further streamlining the process.

Asset Management

Utilising data collected through drones, you can efficiently schedule missions, exercise control over your drone fleet, and oversee data management. This encompasses the ability to plan, create, and edit flight routes to tailor missions to specific needs, ensuring precision and adaptability in your aerial operations.

They can easily access hard-to-reach areas, such as offshore platforms and pipelines, reducing the need for human personnel to undertake risky tasks. Additionally, drones equipped with advanced sensors and cameras provide high-quality data and imagery, enabling comprehensive assessments of infrastructure integrity and environmental compliance. This technology enhances overall operational efficiency and minimises downtime.

When using external drone pilots or subcontractors you’re not in charge of the quality of your data. You can be more responsive when you are collecting the data yourself. Long term it’s also much more cost-effective to bring your aerial drone solution in-house.

The short answer is no. Using drones allows for efficient inspections at speed where you can acquire high-quality data from high-risk environments. Once the initial inspection has been conducted such as locating a fault on a wind turbine, there will always be the need to send a rope access worker to make the mechanical fix. Think of drones as part of your toolbox which you have the power to deploy when the need suits, when you want a speedy inspection without risk and high-costs.
