The Application of Drone in Oil & Gas Industry

Monitoring for leaks or gas emissions, detecting spills, and ensuring that rigs and pipelines are safe and in compliance with regulations are among the most crucial operational tasks that oil and gas companies must carry out. Inspections can prove immensely costly, typically requiring facilities to shut down for days or weeks, losing millions of dollars.

These surveys can also come at great risk. Inspectors have to use ropes, harnesses, and rappelling equipment to reach hard-to access areas on sites like offshore platforms, often in proximity to harmful chemicals.

Unmanned aerial vehicles, better known as UAVs or drones, are now employed by some of the biggest oil and gas companies in the world, saving businesses millions of dollars and making inspections safer than ever before.
