The first of many planned applications for drones is to make companies that operate in the oil and gas sector more productive and efficient. The oil and gas industry in North America has suffered billions of dollars in spending cuts, hundreds of thousands of layoffs and more than 100 bankruptcies in North America over the past two years.
Survey grade mapping, as well as visual inspections, are services that UMI’s drones offer to increase efficiency and decrease risk in field operations. Other services such as well site planning, surveillance, and inventory assessment are provided to assist our clients with their business needs in a rapidly changing and expanding competitive environment.
As of 2016, detecting and stopping leaks is now required by the Environmental Protection Agency.
