'Utility pipeline network' is one of the prime assets for any country and needs the utmost attention from human safety and economy viewpoints. Whether it is an Oil & Gas product pipeline or commodity water pipeline, all are crucial and the potential for failure impact is very high. Activities like PIM (Pipeline Integrity Management), LDC (Leak Detection & Control), CMC (Corrosion Monitoring & Control) are regular activities for safe and efficient pipeline operations. Due to vast distribution networks and varied terrain these pipelines often pass through and inspection activities have lot of challenges. Drone intelligence addresses these challenges accurately and safely.


UAV inspection and monitoring for pipelines need purpose based different sensors and engineering tools. Selection of job specific drone, payload and analysis tool is very important for achieving desired results. Factors like flight-time, elevation, LOS/BVLOAS, PPK or RTK payload selection (RGB/IR/LiDAR/InGaAs-SWIR etc.) & analysis software play a crucial role. a few of the tangible & non-tangible benefits of drone inspection & monitoring are: 


  • Safety-Ultra HD visual, IR & LiDAR inspections without any human intervention; Timely actions on abnormalities prevent accidents and can save human lives

  • Improved coverage- Close-ups of inaccessible/hard to reach areas from desired viewing angles 

  • Time saving – Ability to cover simultaneous data collection (like visual with laser and thermal etc. during the same flight) large areas and rapid analysis of gathered data

  • Increased pipeline uptime–Timely availability of accurate data ensures quick corrective actions to avoid breakdown

  • Optimized Planning– Applying AI and AR on drone captured data results in a clear picture of priorities and provides big assistance in execution & resource planning

  • Enhanced asset life – Periodic drone surveys/monitoring ensure preventive/predictive maintenance actions for improved life of important assets like MOVs, compressors, pumps, bands and joints.

  • Cost saving– Drone inspection cost is much lower in comparison to air/helicopter inspection. This provides a good platform for higher frequency of maintenance inspections for critical pipeline segments

  • Eco-friendly approach– Using drones ensure minimum damage to forests, crops, water bodies and wild-life across the pipeline during the inspections

  • High quality inspection– Our trained pilots are able to fly very close to each of the inspected objects and together with our engineers’ knowledge we are able to rapidly locate issues accurately

Pipeline failures in any domain are extremely critical and there is a big no in the industry for condition-based corrective maintenance. Running pipeline assets to failure have consequences that are not acceptable. In the past, outages were the primary concern for utility companies. In the effort to continue to build reliability for their customers, these companies would track their outage metrics. Today, with aging infrastructure, demand & cost pressures, and changing environmental conditions (from hurricanes, flooding, wildfires, and even criminal activities), an asset reaching failure can have a much greater impact including unfortunately loss of life. This is creating the demand for companies to adopt new technology and enhance traditional utility inspection programs to capture lower resolution ground level imagery for such issues. We provide the service of collecting high fidelity data of pipeline assets so that utilities can catch more length & assets before failure and minimize catastrophic impacts. Our fleet is equipped with desired sensors (HD 4X/LiDAR/IR/InGaAs/SWIRIR) to capture high quality images/data of your entire pl-segment or AOI. We use cloud based data processing solutions to quickly deliver results. Our AI based asset management & maintenance inspection reports provide minute details of abnormalities with severity levels and mention the maintenance recommendations.
