Drones are transforming how some of the most common tasks in pipeline operations are performed.
Traditionally, operators would have to conduct inspections manually for every pipe segment. Now, some of the largest companies around the world are using drones to oversee their operations and improve the safety of their workers.
Drones equipped with remote sensing technology are able to capture real-time data and feed them to tablet screens over 100 km away. This way, the entire pipeline inspection and maintenance process becomes faster, cheaper and safer.
By taking imagery from above, drones instantaneously inform operators on the conditions of pipelines so they can document and address any concerns (leaks, defects, etc.) right away.
The value of drone deployment extends beyond the operation stage. Drones can also aid site construction planning by surveying the entire area for ideal build-out locations.
The advantage drones have over traditional survey methods is quick access to data, making it easier for operators to perform scheduled maintenance.
