2019 NTGPA May Lunch & Learn

Speaker Topic"Utilizing Drone Survey Technology to Support the Oil & Gas Industry"

Halff Associates will be presenting on the employment of drone technology to capture, process, analyze, and utilize survey data for the Oil and Gas industry related to Upstream and Midstream applications.  The use of this cutting-edge technology enables tremendous efficiencies to be realized by improving the time, cost, and safety of the project compared to traditional data collection methods.  The modular systems allow for a variety of capabilities for various applications, including Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), Photogrammetry, 4K Video, High-Resolution Aerial Imagery, FLIR Camera, Sonar, and Terrestrial Scanning.  The deliverables are a drastic improvement as well, with 3-dimensional CADD models and 1/8” per pixel imagery resolution being produced with a significant cost savings.  We hope you can join us to learn more about how this equipment can be implemented to assist you.
