Inspection of the flare systems at the oil refineries in Sakhalin for ExxonMobil can be given as an example of one of the most complex drone operations and using the experience of our experts to full advantage.
Inspection and monitoring of the flare systems were carried out during the early summer, in the harsh environment of Sakhalin Island. Inspection and monitoring flights were followed by fog, rain and wind with speeds reaching 8-9 m/sec. Nevertheless, the order was successfully completed in the face of many difficulties.
Visual inspection and subsequent inspection with a thermographic camera disclosed some insignificant defects, which would be impossible to detect by traditional methods of inspection without interrupting the perations or deployment of much more expensive technologies.
Ignition equipment of the flare systems, corrosion of structure subject to higher thermal loads, quality of welded joints and other connections, wear of the outer shell, safety of railing, excessive thermal stress of the system components, and other components were inspected by drones.
On inspection completion the customer received the final report including inspection act together with comprehensive visual documentation.
Despite strict control and challenging climatic conditions, high accuracy and thoroughness of the monitoring was confirmed. It was successfully completed even in impossible to access during the normal operation the refinery places.
