Pipeline Integrity Management

 Key Benefits


General Inspection

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.

Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)

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

Emergency Response

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

General Inspection

Traditional Challenges in 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.

How Drones Empower General Inspection

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.

Leak Detection and Repair (LDAR)

Traditional Challenges in LDAR

Leakages compromise the safety of the site and the surrounding communities.

The location of the leak can be hard to pinpoint, let alone acquiring a reading on the leakage concentration.

Personnel on the ground are unable to quickly visualize the scale of the leakage or predict its development without an overview.

How Drones Help with LDAR

Drones equipped with gas detector payloads can scout large areas quickly and pinpoint the location of the leak so it can be addressed immediately.

Drones can help personnel determine the scale of the leakage, while sending back aerial insights that help monitor repairs onsite.

Emergency Response

Traditional Challenges in Emergency Response

Emergency repairs require timely coordination between onsite and offsite teams, which can be hard to manage from the ground alone.

Repairs that involve hot work must be monitored closely to ensure safety and compliance.

Repairs can take place simultaneously at multiple locations onsite, which can be difficult to monitor.

How Drones Elevate Emergency Response

Deploy to quickly map the scene of the accident, providing crucial information on the scale so teams can set a plan of action.

Monitor hot work sites from the air, sending live feeds to the command center to rapidly coordinate team assignments.
