Descubriendo el potencial de drones en la industria de gas y petróleo

Los responsables de mantenimiento de plataformas de gas y petróleo se enfrentan a un serio problema: el modo en que la mayoría de los equipos inspecciona y evalúa la corrosión en las instalaciones marinas es anticuado, peligroso, lento y propenso al error humano. En las instalaciones a gran escala, la identificación visual de la corrosión exige la presencia de muchas personas, lo que no solo resulta incómodo, como también inseguro. La buena noticia es que la solución a este problema ya existe, y pasa por utilizar drones y algoritmos de Computer Vision para que los trabajadores sobre el terreno puedan [...]

The economic impact of corrosion in Oil and Gas

Intro The oil and gas industry plays a pivotal role in powering our world. From exploration to production, these facilities are vital for meeting global energy demands. However, they face a persistent threat: corrosion. Corrosion occurs when metal structures are exposed to environmental factors such as moisture, chemicals, and gases, resulting in their gradual deterioration.   The challenges of Corrosion in O&G In the oil and gas sector, where infrastructure is subjected to harsh conditions, corrosion poses a serious challenge. Pipelines, storage tanks, and offshore platforms are all vulnerable to this corrosive attack. Left unchecked, corrosion can lead to catastrophic [...]

Transforming Pipeline Inspection with Machine Vision

Oil and gas pipelines are critical operation components that must provide safe and efficient means of transporting energy resources across vast distances. However, ensuring the safety and reliability of these pipelines requires regular maintenance and inspection, which can be a complex activity Traditionally, inspection has relied on the human workforce in the field, who visually examine pipelines for signs of damage, corrosion, or other defects and then fill out reports to indicate anomalies or possible problems. However, this approach is time-consuming, costly, and can be prone to human error. Moreover, it is difficult to inspect pipelines located in remote or [...]

Unlocking the Potential of Drones in the Oil and Gas Industry

Oil and gas topside maintenance managers are facing a problem: the way their team currently inspects and assesses corrosion in offshore installations is outdated, hazardous, time-consuming, and prone to human error. With big-scale installations, visual identification of corrosion demands a lot of people on board, which is not only inconvenient but also unsafe. The good news is that the solution to this problem exists, and it involves using drones and computer vision algorithms to empower field workers to automatically detect corrosion with the support of technology. In this blog post, we'll explore how drones can help you unlock the potential [...]

Benefits of Predictive Maintenance for Christmas Tree Equipment in the Oil and Gas Industry

Predictive maintenance is a modern approach to equipment maintenance that aims to predict potential failures and prevent them before they occur. In the oil and gas industry, the importance of maintenance cannot be ignored, as equipment downtime can result in significant financial losses and a decrease in production, as well as a safety risk. For example, one of the most relevant equipment for upstream oil and gas industries during the product extraction phase is the Christmas Tree, which is largely responsible for controlling productivity and safety in the operation. In other words, a failure that impairs its operation can [...]
