How Drones for Oil and Gas Improve Performance in the Industry

UAV Solutions

Why drones for Oil & Gas become more popular each day? It is no secret that the industry can be hazardous. Heavy equipment, confined spaces such as storage tanks or mining access, infrastructure in remote areas such as pipelines and offshore platforms, and dangerous chemical processes and exposure all add a level of risk to life and limb for employees and hours of travel and wear and tear on equipment. But with the emergence of industrial drones, many of the tasks that required human risk and resources can be given to unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) instead.

Drones Reduce Hazardous Exposure

Inspection tasks that at one time required an employee to suit up in expensive protective equipment and risk exposure to hazardous materials now can be done more efficiently through the use of UAVs. Sending a professional drone into a storage tank to check integrity means that an employee would only have to enter that space if the drone detected a problem. This not only makes the whole industry safer for personnel but also improves efficiency by targeting resources exactly where they need to go.

Drones for Oil & Gas Reduce Travel and Equipment Expenses

But that isn’t the only benefit that UAVs can bring to the industry. Pipelines and offshore platforms, often in remote locations, require time and resources to inspect and maintain. Utilizing professional drones in pipeline inspection, remotely flying over miles and miles of hard-to-access geographical areas, can save companies vast financial and personnel resources and allow them flexibility and targeted solutions to potential problems.

Drones Improve Productivity

Because of the benefits listed above, UAVs can revolutionize the industry in its approach to maintenance and human safety. Automated data gathering can reduce lead time in maintenance and safety concerns, allowing companies to target their resources appropriately. Replacing other means of pipeline or offshore platform inspection with drone surveillance means labor hours freed up elsewhere.

Why Use FIXAR?

In short, UAV use has revolutionized the oil and gas industry, and every major oil production corporation uses drones in some capacity for inspection, data gathering, and surveillance. FIXAR UAVs are equipped with LIDAR, thermal camera, and other technologies, ideal for mapping interior spaces, analyzing terrain, and scanning for potential maintenance problems.

The outdoor FIXAR 007’s flight range of up to 60 kilometers and max speed of 120 km/h allows for any outdoor application necessary in the oil and gas industry. The FIXAR Indoor model, with its DuoCamera allowing for day and night use, can scan and gather data on confined and hazardous spaces without risking the safety of workers.
