Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS), better known as UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) or drones, are used by many large oil, gas, and utility companies. Maneuvering effortlessly around flare stacks, oil rigs, underdecks, and along miles of pipeline, these rugged, remote-operated birds save businesses time and can make inspections safer.
Drones are making the surveying, inspection, and routine maintenance of energy infrastructure safer and faster while reducing costs and delivering greater value. Thanks to the data collected by drones, key energy stakeholders now have more actionable insights into energy-generating equipment, projects, and operations, empowering them to make smarter decisions all around.
Whether scaling the heights of flare stacks to capture otherwise inaccessible images or providing eyes in the sky to monitor operations, drones are making their way into many businesses.
Easton Engineering & Inspection employs FAA sUAS Licensed Remote Pilots and operates in compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations.
