Drones in Petroleum Industry
The use of unmanned aerial vehicles owned by Prime Aviation opens up wide opportunities for oil and gas enterprises: from primary geodetic surveys to monitoring of drilling rigs and trunk pipelines, control of leaks, equipment repair.
Drones allow quickly collecting the necessary information, penetrating into hard-to-reach places where classical technology or a person is unable to get. Equipped with thermal imagers, the drones capture high-quality images in poor visibility conditions. Drones are easily controlled remotely.
Drones have been used as effective tools for collecting topographic data for many years. Devices are equipped with high-quality photo and video equipment, which allow them to obtain complete and high-quality information about the area of interest with further compilation of orthophoto maps, 3D terrain models, etc.
