There is still a human factor involved in surveying, detecting and localizing gas leaks. But the risk of human life can be avoided by using unmanned innovations. Drones are actively used in the oil and gas industry all over the world, but for Ukrainian companies they still remain technologies of the distant future.

On March 23, the co-founder of DroneUA, the largest integrator of unmanned technology in Ukraine, Fevzi Ametov, spoke at the II Ukrainian Gas Investment Forum ’17 and spoke about the possibility of using drones in the industry.

The main advantages of using drones in the gas industry are their autonomous flight range, the ability to create a preliminary route, and receive real-time video.

The functions of unmanned vehicles can be based on monitoring the integrity of networks, surveillance of certain individual areas, preliminary assessment of the safety of work, security of pipelines.

DroneUA has been on the Ukrainian market of unmanned technologies for 4 years and is actively promoting innovations in rather conservative areas of the Ukrainian economy. Now the company's activities are focused mainly in agriculture — DroneUA Technologies are used on more than 2 million hectares of cultivated areas. But drones are also applicable in other industries, such as the mining and oil and gas industries. Thanks to its size, maneuverability and fault tolerance, a drone can cover huge areas, hundreds of kilometers of gas pipelines, inspecting and identifying anomalies in a day.

Based on DroneUA solutions, it is already possible to carry out surveying and data collection, terrain mapping, monitoring of dangerous objects and analyze the collected information.
