Online Flare Inspection
GASCO Online Flare Inspection & Structural Integrity Assessment
JSE Engineering was awarded a project to conduct a detailed aerial inspection of several active Flare Stacks at a major Oil Refinery in the UAE. Optical & Thermograph imaging was performed through ROI (Remotely Operated Inspection) In contrast to manual inspections, personnel were not required to climb the stacks, each several hundred meter in height, and the refinery saved invaluable production time and cost. Inspecting operating infrastructure can require lengthy and expensive shutdowns for detailed manual inspection, especially where personal or environmental safety is concerned. Flare stacks generate an extreme amount of heat so fast flight control responsiveness is critical when using UAV’s. After establishing a best-angle view above the flare stack images and video were taken from all angles. The flight process was then repeated with the remaining flare stacks. Under ideal circumstances, the flare stack inspection flight time can be completed in one hour. This new and innovative way of performing maintenance inspections results in huge cost savings for the Oil and Gas industry.
