The Use of Drone Technology for Remote Oil Sampling

The Use of Drone Technology for Remote Oil Sampling

IMC-2017 Focused Forum - 43:09
by Michael Holloway, ALS Global

Oil analysis sampling can be difficult if not impossible in certain environments due to location. The use of unmanned aerial vehicles have increased exponentially due to advances in materials, aeronautics, and systems for commercial applications. Drones can accomplish tasks that would be difficult if not impossible for people. The combination of oil sampling and unmanned aerial vehicles is a perfect match in certain situations. Only recently has the concept become viable due to a combination of vacuum sample bottles and ducted fan drone technology. This presentation explores the applications where a patent pending ducted fan drone coupled with a vacuum oil sample bottles can provide access to various assets where normally it would be expensive if not prohibitive for typical sampling protocols to occur.
