Pipeline Inspections

Drones have revolutionised pipeline inspection by offering a cost-effective and efficient solution for monitoring oil and gas pipelines, as well as water infrastructure, across extensive regions.

Pipelines serve as essential components of critical infrastructure, facilitating the transportation of oil and natural gas from production sites to refineries, chemical plants, residences, and commercial entities. Nevertheless, it is essential to acknowledge that oil and natural gas are inherently volatile and can be explosive. They are commonly transported through pipeline systems characterised by high temperatures and pressures. Hence, it is of utmost importance to maintain vigilant monitoring of these pipelines to guarantee their efficient and safe operation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers on the Pipeline Inspections

Utilising drones for pipeline inspections offers a safer alternative to traditional methods, mitigating the risks associated with exposure to crude oil leaks. Drone technology enables quicker detection of leaks, effectively reducing the likelihood of impending disasters and preserving environmental integrity.

The major benefit to drones is the speed in which they can inspect pipelines and collect better quality data.  Using images, video and thermal sensor capture, no leak will go undetected.

This depends on the regulations within the area you are flying in and also the data required.  Our drones can fly for longer times and further distances than most other drones so you can cover many kilometers in a day if it is done right.

This would prove to be very difficult if the pipe is buried underground.  However, there is a possibility of being able to do it if it is a water pipe as the thermal imaging would pick up on the temperature changes on the ground.

The frequency of drone inspections depends on the pipeline’s age, condition, the surrounding environment, and regulatory requirements. Regular inspections should be scheduled to ensure ongoing pipeline integrity and safety.

Yes, drones can detect leaks in pipelines. They can be equipped with thermal imaging cameras and other sensors that identify changes in temperature or specific chemical signatures indicative of leaks.
