Drones and Pipeline Integrity Management

Drones help monitor and manage long pipelines spread across different geographies, identifying leakages or anomalies quickly


General Inspection

Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)

Emergency Response

Gain a live aerial overview of pipeline conditions and monitor potential risks regularly to identify issues early on and address them in a timely manner.

Identify leakages quickly and accurately using drones equipped with specialized sensors, keeping personnel safe and enabling timely decision making.

Fly over affected areas, document damage to infrastructure and property, and create accurate models that help optimize repair efforts.


Traditional Challenges in General Inspection

How Drones Empower General Inspection

  • Personnel could be exposed to safety risks when inspecting and maintaining pipelines that are spread out in remote areas, while vandalism and theft monitoring is difficult.
  • Failure to detect illegal construction and occupation in time may pose risks or cause damage to oil and gas pipelines.
  • As the pipeline ages, the risk of failure and leakage increases, the frequency of inspections needs to be increased and a lot of manpower is required.
  • Drone are flexibly deployed to quickly gain an overview of the pipeline network, while capturing details with a zoom sensor.
  • Digitize inspection results by deploying drones to gain a live view of the pipeline network to collect evidence of illegal activities and keep the footage on file for recordkeeping and condition comparisons.
  • Augmenting traditional inspection with drone insight improves efficiency while protecting workers from hazardous environments.
