Some of the most common inspection points are tanks, pipelines, well pads, and flare stacks. Historically, this equipment is shut off so that workers can go in and perform an inspection. Without this site in operation, money is lost on halted production and insurance premiums. For a large oil and gas company, this can mean millions of dollars in lost revenue. DroneDeploy’s advanced technology can make these operations easier, faster, and safer for all involved.
One of the most practical applications for inspections is DroneDeploy’s Thermal Live Map. This allows the user to detect temperature range variability for a selected area. For organizations with hundreds or thousands of miles of pipelines to inspect, this makes it easy to identify hot spots, leaks, and blockages on-site. Gone unchecked, these issues could lead to equipment damage, lost product, or large-scale environmental damage. While these kinds of inspections typically take weeks to complete, using DroneDeploy can cut this down to just hours or days.
