Minimise Risk, Reduce Cost
Drone technology is transforming the Oil and Gas industry by minimising risk, reducing cost and protecting asset integrity. Organisations including Can Offshore, Trac and drone service providers like GeoAccess are using this cutting-edge technology for internal and external inspections.

Meet George Burne
UAV Strategist – Utilities, Renewables and Asset Inspection
George has helped organisations like Trac, Can Offshore and TEXO improve business efficiency by introducing drone technology. George’s expertise lies in reducing risk, improving the data collected and reducing down-time by using a drone solution where possible alongside traditional inspection methods.
Regular inspection of asset integrity is critical for the oil and gas sector to protect the assets by predicting when repairs will be needed and ensuring the sites are running at full capacity. Inspection by traditional methods such as rope access will always be part of the job but introducing drones to conduct the initial inspection cuts down costs hugely whilst reducing risk to workers on the ground.
Check out George’s Drones for Inspection’ webinar series to hear from some of our latest clients benefiting from using drones for inspections including Drone Service Providers working in Critical Infrastructure inspection around the UK.

“We’ve recently done some internal tank inspections with the ELIOS 2, very confined space, dirty and it worked brilliantly. The oblique lighting makes a huge difference on the image quality, which is so important when you’re inspecting dusty or dirty environments. We’ve done tank inspections, sewer inspections, chimney inspections and we haven’t had one situation where we’ve not been impressed by the images captured by the ELIOS 2.”

BENEFITS OF DRONES
RAPTOR UAS LTD
“We have invested in ELIOS 2 to enhance our inspection capabilities using this groundbreaking drone. Its clear vision and intelligent collision avoidance were of particular advantage to our operations. We also chose to work with COPTRZ who are a trusted partner in the commercial drone space.”
"With drones we can either prevent people working in these dangerous environments, or we can use the drone as a back-up and a support mechanism for the team that’s on the ground. Instead of relying on a rigging crew and thousands of pounds a day to access a tower why not send a drone up safely and review the condition without putting anyone at risk."
“We have an offshore site where we have partnered with a company in Switzerland that make the autonomous hardware that fits the M300. This means that after we have carried out an inspection and are doing the analysis afterwards, the data is far more accurate. For example, if there is a crack on the blade, it can tell us exactly how far away from the tip of the blade it is and the length of it to the exact mm"
