Flare Stack Inspection Revolutionise your flare stack inspections by using drones and inspect them while they remain operational. Fast, safe and cost effective.

Reduce downtime with live inspections

Traditional flare stack inspections are dangerous, time consuming and costly. Flare stacks have to be shut down during manned inspections. Engineers With Drones carry out flare stack drone inspections for the Oil & Gas industry. This drone inspection can go ahead while the flare stack is live, reducing the cost dramatically. Stabilised drones capture accurate and actionable data offshore and onshore, covering angles impossible to attain with conventional methods.

Faster and safer than manual inspection

Aerial drone inspections and surveys give you fast, safe and easy access to onshore and offshore installations. The flare stack can remain live during the drone inspection carried out by our fully trained and certified pilots. We will produce a visual inspection report using drones equipped with advanced HD camera and thermal imaging technology, giving our clients valuable insights into the flare stacks condition. These insights enable you to make calculated decisions regarding maintenance, daily operations and repairs. This in turn will limit downtime in production.

Comprehensive data collection

Improve the quality and detail of your inspection by using our services. Engineers With Drones can provide flare stack inspections at heights and provide vantage points impossible to capture any other way. The hundreds of pictures captured allow you to analyse the status of your assets more accurately than traditional inspections and without putting employees at risk. This means you won’t need an inspection team working at dangerous heights.
