(English) UAS – UAV Inspection & Monitoring Solutions for Oil & Gas

Since the year 2006, the Research & Development department of Intellisystem Technologies has worked as leading specialist oil and gas drone inspection provider globally.

Intellisystem Technologies presents on the markets a new Unmanned Aircraft Systems (called UAS or UAV Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) solution for the Oil and Gas industry showing new capabilities that reduce cost and operational risk while also improving efficiency.

Drone - Intellisystem Technologies

Our solutions is able to produce 4K and full HD video, 3D full HD, High Resolution Pictures, High Resolution 3D Picture, thermal video and imagery. All the drones collected data are fed into our company’s proprietary data platform, analysed and delivered to the client as a technical report. Each part of this process involve our highly qualified, in-house team engineers of global industry experts in flare systems and structural engineering.

Our UAS service can be used to measure and quantify oil spills, determine how the oil is moving in water and provide information and imagery to the command center. Infrared (IR) and thermal imaging can be extremely helpful to survey oil spills making it easier to see where the oil is spreading.

This critical information increases the situational awareness of first responders to the incident, increasing safety and the ability to make better decisions in the clean-up planning efforts.

All of this involve:

  • Less staff requirement with more safety.Traditional methods like industrial mountaineering and height works with scaffold services or helicopter operations involve high risk and are cost-intensive.
  • Less time required. Quickly airborne.Quick live image analysis. Immediately processable data.
  • No loss of production.Eliminates the need to take your facilities off the grid, reduced downtime and allows surveys during production or construction.

Another use of our UAS solution service is monitoring pipelines. IR and thermal image capabilities enable the unmanned aircraft to detect leaks that would otherwise not be visible. Additionally, specialized sensors can be used to detect emissions of gas leaks. Applications from asset security, ice monitoring and terrain mapping are just a few ways this highly effective technology can be utilized today.
