Oil Refinery and

Storage Tank Inspection

Using the most cutting edge aerial platforms, paired with advanced visual, laser, and thermal sensors, we identify critical issues such as: Gas leakage, solar loading, water accumulation, petroleum leakage, and areas that are potentially
susceptible to dangerous corrosion.

Flare Stack and

Chimney Inspection

Implementing a UAV to perform regular maintenance inspections eliminates the need for rope access and scaffolding to identify cracks and anomalies.

We search for gas and oil leaks as well as other common pipeline failures using advanced thermal imaging and high definition optical sensors.

Safety Benefits

  • Increased safety with the reduction of personnel exposure to hazardous elements

  • Less ground crew risk

  • Decreased injury risk associated with personnel working at heights


  • We provide a customized solution based on predefined client requirements.

  • Fast and accurate information that is exported as workable data.

  • Export into Procore
