OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY

ABR Ecosystem. A fresh approach to solving problems using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in the interests of increasing the efficiency of companies’ internal business processes

Both onshore and offshore oil and gas facilities require frequent inspections and maintenance to ensure safety and prevent disruptions. The most common current methods of inspecting hard-to-reach locations require work interruption, building scaffolding or installing rope lines, as well as sending an inspector with a camera to hazardous areas. In addition to the costly necessary downtime, the logistics and danger of these processes have a significant impact on the net income.  

Today, the use of unmanned aerial systems by oil and gas companies is, among other applications, the most effective way to solve the problem of infrastructure inspections. Oil and gas production begins with exploration. Using UAVs at this stage reduces the time it takes to conduct primary exploration and provides more complete and high-quality data than those obtained using land-based tools or a satellite.  

ABR Ecosystem offers a full range of products and services to cope with these tasks effectively. Due to the key element of our ecosystem,
ABR AirChannel UTM unmanned air traffic management system, it is possible to control the UAV fleet beyond visual line of sight in a centralized manner, eventually realizing the entire potential of unmanned aviation in terms of infrastructure inspections in the oil and gas sector.
