Reduce costs and risks in oil and gas inspections

NO human entry and
work at height

90% cost saving for a
chimney inspection

4 hours for an internal
tank inspection

Why choose the Elios 3 UT drone for oil & gas inspections?


Drones in oil and gas have helped reduce inspection time, cut costs, decrease downtime, and identify problems early on. What sets the Elios 3 apart from other UAVs is its ability to reach places no other drone can and swiftly conduct visual and UT inspections compliant with API/EEMUA regulations. Thanks to its unique design it can easily access pipe racks, chimneys, tanks, flares, and distillation columns and take up to 30 measurements every 10 minutes. In addition, the drone’s advanced LiDAR capabilities allow it to precisely localize POIs (points of interest) for future reference and comparison

With the UT Payload mounted, inspectors can perform accurate ultrasonic thickness measurements while safely standing on the ground, avoiding unnecessary scaffolding, rope access or man lifts which can be expensive and dangerous.

“Among the many use cases we identified for robotics at Total, confined spaces inspection is probably the one that gave us the best satisfaction. This has been possible thanks to the Flyability Elios, which is a fast decision-making tool which enhances our safety and the availability of our assets”
