Inspect your Assets.
Traditional methods of surveying, detecting, and locating leaks in the oil and gas fields are inefficient and costly to conduct. Workers have risked their lives to climb highrising stacks and inspections have caused lengthy activity shutdowns. The Scout 15 is a cost effective, efficient and safe solution to these issues.
Using a Scout 15 allows oil and gas assets to be inspected quickly, efficiently and safely.
Oil and Gas Inspection Types
The use of a Scout 15 can avoid lengthy shut down periods for offshore oil platforms, as well as keeping personnel out of harms way. Full HD video and still imagery can be provided from all angles – vital information that can be used to assess and plan necessary work in advance.
The Scout 15 allows you to obtain detailed high-resolution imagery of flare stack heads without getting too close to the asset. Without the need to climb the stacks, risk to personnel is eliminated and production time is left uninterrupted. This enables you to detect any form of damage that may be detrimental to the operation of the flare stacks, including damage to piping, structural abnormalities and various other internal and external inconsistencies.
Drones have become the most economical type of platform for the inspection of the thousands of miles of pipelines transporting oil and gas around the world. These structures must be constantly monitored to reduce the potential for undetected leaks, which in the past have caused life threatening fires and explosions. Thermal imaging cameras and specialty sensors fitted to the Scout can detect oil and gas leaks – reducing the risk to personnel or the surrounding environment.
Safety checks on tailings ponds are too done traditionally by workers on foot or expensive fly-over inspections that require endless safety precautions. Using a Scout 15 makes gathering information in dangerous environments possible, with extreme weather conditions no longer being a barrier to carrying out inspections.
The Scout 15 and specialized sensors can be used to measure and quantify oil spills, with the ability to assess where the oil is spreading, how quickly it is moving in the water and the specific areas it has reached. This real-time information can determine where to send response vessels and recovers time previously spent on the process of damage detection.
The Scout 15 can use highly sensitive optical sensors to monitor gas emissions over large and critical sites. This can allow safe 3D mapping of drill sites, gas pipelines, landfills and other municipal operations, as well as reducing the overall cost of inspection
