For iTerra Drone Conducts Flare Stack Inspection For State Energy Company ENAP

Terra Drone has successfully conducted visual inspection of flare stacks for Chile’s state-owned energy company ENAP. In this project, three flare stacks – each about 70m tall – were inspected in 45 minutes using drones. This proved to be significantly more cost-effective and quicker, than the conventional method, of engaging the services of a professional photographer, in a manned helicopter.

ENAP inspects their flare stacks once every three years, but now wants to conduct more frequent inspections, to ensure optimum performance during operations. Terra Drone used a DJI M210 RTK drone mounted with 2 cameras – a Zenmuse Z30 (zoom camera) and a Zenmuse X5S (high-resolution camera) – for this activity. The drone captured the images of the flares from different angles to facilitate an inspection report that would show each part’s status in terms of cracks, deformity, and integrity.
“In the future, we see a large potential in the European market to implement our technology and experiences gained. There are many benefits and applications of drones that will attract oil and gas companies to adapt them in their daily operations,” said Toru Tokushige, CEO of Terra Drone Corporation.
