Expert Drone Oil and Gas Pipelines Services
What Is A Drone Pipeline Inspection?
A drone pipeline inspection is an innovative approach to surveying the condition and integrity of pipelines, especially those used in the oil and gas industry. It involves the use of drones, or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), equipped with advanced technologies such as high-resolution cameras, infrared sensors, and sometimes Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) systems.
The drones fly over the oil and gas pipelines, collecting a variety of data during their flights inspecting pipelines. This data can include high-resolution aerial images, thermal and optical gas imaging, and 3D maps of the pipeline terrain. Drones also use LiDAR technology to create 3D point clouds, which are dense sets of data points that represent the physical characteristics of the pipeline and its surrounding area.
Revolutionising Oil and Gas Industry: Speed, Precision, Safety
Deep-Dive Silo Interior Surface Inspection
Inspecting pipelines manually, especially those transporting flammable substances like natural gas or crude oil, comes with the risk of explosions and fires. Drones can help mitigate this risk, dramatically improving worker safety.
Through drone pipeline inspections, potential hazards such as leaks of methane gas or jet fuel can be identified without human intervention. Using thermal imaging, drones can detect changes in pipeline surface temperature, indicating possible leaks.
This reduces the potential for catastrophic pipeline failure and further enhances pipeline safety.

Identify Corrosion, Broken Valves, Failed Gaskets, Poor Welds, and Leaks
Pipeline inspection is crucial to detect corrosion, broken valves, failed gaskets, poor welds, and leaks – all potential precursors to pipeline failure.
Drone inspections play a vital role in identifying these issues efficiently and accurately. Equipped with high-resolution cameras and sensors, drones can capture minute details of pipeline conditions, allowing companies to detect problems early and carry out necessary repairs.

Prevent Deterioration of Storage Tanks
Storage tanks in the energy industry are just as crucial as pipelines and need regular inspection to ensure they are in good condition.
Drones equipped with thermal and visual cameras can inspect these tanks for signs of deterioration or leaks, offering a more efficient and less hazardous method than traditional manual inspections.
This application of drone technology is particularly relevant for oil and gas companies inspecting pipelines, ensuring the safety of their valuable petroleum reserves.
Minimise Risk with Drone Inspections
Drone Pipeline Inspections Less Intrusive, More Sustainable
For oil and gas companies, ensuring the integrity of pipelines traversing forest habitats is a serious challenge.
Traditional methods often require creating paths through the forest, leading to habitat fragmentation and disturbing wildlife. Drone inspections eliminate this need, as unmanned aerial vehicles can fly over the forest, providing a less invasive means to monitor pipelines.
Drone technology, coupled with visual or infrared cameras, can provide precise data about pipeline conditions without harming the surrounding environment.
