OIL & GAS INSPECTION & SURVEY USING UNMANNED AERIAL VEHICLES

AERIAL INSPEC TION AND SURVEYING SPECIALISTS


ABOUT CY BERHAWK

WHAT WE DO Founded in 2008 by experienced oil and gas engineers, Cyberhawk conducts close visual and thermal inspections of high, live or difficult to access structures at onshore and offshore oil and gas installations using UAVs.

The world leader in aerial inspection and surveying using Remotely Operated Aerial Vehicles (ROAVs).

TRACK RECORD We have completed over 500 live flare inspections and more than 5000 structural inspections. We operate in over 25 countries and have worked for all of the oil and gas supermajors.

GLOBAL FOOTPRINT With offices in Aberdeen, Houston, Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur and Stavanger, our work spans across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, North America and Africa. 02

OIL &GAS INSPECTION & SURVEY


HIGHLY EXPERIENCED All of our engineers are ASME or CSWIP qualified plant inspectors with flare, structural, mechanical or chemical engineering backgrounds, whilst our industry leading training programme produces highly experienced pilots. Our offshore pilots undertake four levels of training and have a minimum of 18 months’ experience and 500 flights.

SCREENING TOOL Our team works with clients to undertake an early inspection of their assets before prioritising further inspection and potential maintenance required.

MULTI WORK SCOPE INSPECTIONS Cyberhawk has the ability to inspect multiple assets on a single mobilisation and can work from a supply vessel, enabling us to complete structural, dropped object and emergency inspections without requiring bed space on the platform.

THERMAL INSPECTION Cyberhawk’s qualified thermography engineers use this technique to identify burnback in flares, steam leaks and refractory breakdown in chimney ducting.


L I V E FLARE IN S PECTION Cyberhawk has completed over 500 close visual and thermal inspections of live flare stacks, both onshore and offshore, around the world. Our inspection technique removes the need for a shutdown to inspect the flare and provides the information required to reduce, delay or better plan a turnaround.

OIL &GAS INSPECTION & SURVEY


U NDERDEC K INS P EC T ION Only Cyberhawk has expert pilots who are able to actually fly under the deck of an offshore production platform or drilling rig.

“EXPERT PILOTS, ABLE TO FLY EVEN IN GPS DENIED ENVIRONMENTS”

Thanks to our experience and high levels of training, our pilots are able to zoom in on areas of interest, eradicating the need for large scaffolding, rope access work scopes, over side work and standby vessels. We recently completed a 119 day, six man rope access work scope in just 3 days, using only 2 people, proving the dramatic efficiencies our inspection technique achieves.


VE NT STA C K & E X HA UST INSP EC T ION We provide an innovative solution to inspect onshore and offshore vent stacks and exhausts while they are live. This significantly reduces costs by removing the need to shut down during inspections and reducing the need for working at height.

OIL &GAS INSPECTION & SURVEY


I NTERN A L TA N K I NS P EC T ION Cyberhawk can undertake UAV internal inspections on large tanks on operational vessels such as FPSOs, bulk carriers, tankers and onshore oil storage tanks. UAVs reduce the requirement for working at height and in confined spaces, allowing the pilot to undertake a safe first audit of the tank so that further inspection and maintenance can be prioritised.

“OUR INTERNAL TANK INSPECTION TECHNIQUE IS UP TO FOUR TIMES FASTER THAN TRADITIONAL METHODS”


CHI MN EY & COOLIN G TOWE R IN S PECTION Using UAV technology, Cyberhawk captures a series of individual aerial images to cover the full surface of the structure. Advanced photogrammetry software is then used to create accurate 3D models and highly detailed orthophoto mosaics of the chimney or cooling tower. The results are delivered in Cyberhawk’s iHawk software as well as traditional formats, which allows the user to visually scan the full height and 360o model with defects accurately measured and categorised.

“DEFECTS ARE ACCURATELY MEASURED AND LOCATED TO +/- 10MM” OIL &GAS INSPECTION & SURVEY


ST R U CTURAL IN S PECTIO N Cyberhawk’s UAV inspection technique provides structural inspections of high or difficult to reach structures, which are faster and safer than conventional access methods. We reduce costs by removing the requirement for large areas of scaffolding and improve safety by reducing the need for working at height and overside work.

“14 WEEKS TO COMPLETE AN INSPECTION? WE’VE DONE IT IN THREE DAYS.”


AERI AL SU R VEY We use fixed wing and rotary UAVs to acquire high resolution aerial images. This imagery is processed using advanced photogrammetry software to generate orthophotos, digital elevation models and panoramic images of a site.

“OUR TEAMS ARE HIGHLY EXPERIENCED IN WORKING ACROSS A RANGE OF INDUSTRIAL SITES”

This type of imagery is commonly used for site design, health and safety inductions, evacuation plans, tendering information and as-built photography. All of this can be presented in a web based 360 degree virtual tour.

• Reduction or elimination of working at height • Maintain stand-off distance from operating asset • Reduce the use of manned helicopters • Internal pilot training programme

• Increase facility uptime and reduce • Shorter setup and faster interruption of operations inspection time • Clear representation of asset condition • Reduce use of manned helicopters, scaffolding, binoculars and rope access using visible and thermal imagery • Reduction or elimination of Persons • Better planning of maintenance and on Board (PoB) issues (when operating turnarounds, especially in life extension from a boat) programmes • Periodic condition monitoring to keep declining assets running safely


CA S E S TUDY: ON S H ORE WEST AFRICA’S FIRST ROAV LIVE FLARE INSPECTION

Cyberhawk recently completed the first ever UAV live flare inspection in West Africa. A two-man team, comprising an inspection engineer and pilot, inspected five live flares for the oil and gas supermajor in less than a week. Alternative methods of inspection such as rope access or scaffolding would have taken months to complete and would have required a complete shutdown of the facility. The detailed inspection reports completed by Cyberhawk’s plant inspector and flare expert provided the facility with the information they required to fully plan and prepare flare tip replacement and repair work during the next planned turnaround.

C A SE ST UDY: OFFSHORE MULTIPLE WORK SCOPE INSPECTION ON A NORTH SEA PLATFORM

The client required an unbiased and consistent Material and Corrosion Damage Report (MCDR). The flare, exhausts, platform elevations, walkways, splash zone and underdeck were all inspected in one mobilisation. A previous inspection of the underdeck alone took a six-man Rope Access Team some 14 weeks, with major cost, time and operational implications for the client. Cyberhawk took three days to complete the inspection of the whole underdeck and eight days for the full workscope. The client is now rolling out Cyberhawk’s inspection solution to their global assets.



“THE CLIENT IS NOW ROLLING OUT CYBERHAWK’S INSPECTION SOLUTION TO THEIR GLOBAL ASSETS”


T E S T IMON IAL S ‘‘Our offshore team has reported a very professional and reliable service and we all have confidence that any future scope of work will be completed in the same manner. The communication and turnaround of the deliverables was excellent.’’ APACHE, NORTH SEA

“Everyone involved is astonished at the clarity of the photography and the accessibility of the aircraft to the flare structure to gain views of the flare tip and structure that have typically been unavailable from full sized aerial surveys. The inspection report is therefore far more comprehensive than anything we have previously been able to produce” OIM, MAERSK OIL

“Using UAV technology has huge advantages in terms of safety and cost savings” SNR MECHANICAL INTEGRITY ENGINEER, CENTRICA

“The crew arrived on time and carried out the scope in a timely and professional manner. The quality of the report was good and technically competent. Feedback from management was very good, additional scope for Cyberhawk is now being looked at” SENIOR INSPECTION ENGINEER, CHEVRON

“A professional approach using state of the art technology showing inspection results we have never seen before” HEAD OF INTEGRITY, OMAN LNG

“Excellent job. I’ve passed the inspection report to our Civil Engineers who are really impressed with the quality and detail. So much so that they are going to hand the report straight over to the maintenance contractor as a direct guide to corrective actions” INSPECTION ENGINEER, SHELL UK
