Many offshore asset managers face a similar problem: how to inspect hard-to-reach assets, without shutting down or interrupting operations, quickly, safely and cost-effectively. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer an innovative inspection method which dramatically reduces safety risks, maximises facility uptime and increases production efficiency. In the new, lower oil price environment, innovation is crucial to find more efficient and cost-effective ways of working. UAV inspection is being increasingly adopted for that reason. Whether used as a standalone inspection technique, or as part of a wider inspection programme as a screening tool, more and more oil and gas companies understand the benefits on offer.
