Drone services for the Oil & Gas sector

Aerial Drone Services for inspections and surveys in the Oil and Gas Sector

In the oil and gas sector, time is money. It always has been and it always will be.  Up till now, inspections and surveys of important infrastructure, drilling equipment and off shore rig platforms has required a professional inspection crew who, depending on the project requirements, would be working in a dangerous environment at height.  The very nature of this type of inspection service would result in specialist rope access training, scaffolding and support crew while also having to shut down rig production while inspections take place.

With the latest in advanced aerial drones, we are able to provide a leading aerial inspection and survey service to both off shore and onshore assets and infrastructure in the oil & gas sector while delivering huge cost saving benefits and fast turnaround times.  Our aerial drones are equipped with the latest in high tech 4K video camera technology, thermal imaging and advanced vision guidance systems that allow them to safely navigate the unique characteristics of oil platforms, underdeck areas and the high wind environments of the north sea.

Our drones are perfectly placed to provide aerial services in the following areas:

  • Fixed platforms
  • Flare Stacks
  • Heat Shielding
  • Semi submersibles
  • FPSO
  • Onshore Refineries
  • Petrochemical Plants
  • Construction Sites
  • Silos
  • Pipelines
  • Powerlines

Underwater Drone Services for inspections and surveys in the Oil and Gas Sector

With the corrosive nature of salt water requiring constant monitoring of underwater structures and assets, the need for a reliable, safe method of underwater inspection has led us to offer ROV inspection services for our customers in the oil and gas sector.

  • Underwater Paint Inspection
  • Underwater Pipeline Inspection
  • Ship Hull Inspection
  • Anchor Chain and Riser Inspection
  • Offshore Structural Inspection

Using the latest in underwater inspection drones, our Falcon ROV is designed with an open frame construction which allows us to fit numerous standard accessories for a more complete underwater inspection service.

From larger tools to sensor and inspection packages, they can all be fitted using a skid fitting under the underwater drone.
