Since drones can remain in the air for a long period, they can inspect a damaged pipeline much more accurately and quickly than a human ground team can. The images that the drone takes help the gas utility in determining the extent of the damage after which teams can be deployed to do the exact area to complete repair work.
Special cameras allow them to detect leaks and other hazards unseen by the human eye. Drones and unmanned aerial vehicles can also be used to survey and explore new gas fields. Inspecting potential areas in a short time is made easily possible using drone mapping.
