Aerial Services for Oil & Gas Inspections

We have experience in:

Ensure Regulatory Compliance While Maximizing Workflows and Reducing Emissions with Volatus Aerospace

At Volatus Aerospace, our state-of-the-art drone technology, paired with our proprietary data collection software, AIRS3, provides a full-service solution from collection, processing, and analysis to providing actionable insights for your oil and gas assets. We ensure regulatory compliance, while maximizing workflows, reducing emissions, and identifying hazards that can impact safety and your bottom line.

Improve Real-Time Monitoring and Maximize Workflow Efficiency

Gather critical data and monitor oil and gas assets when and where you need it. Both our crewed aircraft and drone-based solutions offer flexible, efficient, and cost-effective ways to manage the inspection and monitoring of pipelines and corridors providing geo-referenced data in real-time. Quickly identify and assess pipeline integrity, vegetation encroachment, land degradation, and other hazards to protect your assets and ensure ongoing safety. By leveraging innovative technology and our proprietary software, our team quickly identifies potential problems and produces actionable reports that keep you in compliance with local and federal regulations.

Industry Leading Gas Detection

Using industry standard Boreal Laser GLD and optical gas detection, we can pinpoint and map elevated levels of CH4, C02, and NH3, pinpointing and locating anomalies with geo-referenced locations of elevated gas readings.

How It Works:

  • Using Tunable Diode Laser Absorption Spectroscopy (TDLAS), including single-pass, dual-pass and multi-pass cells, the presence of gas produces a current between two electrodes. The current intensity is measured and translates to a gas concentration level.


  • The absorption technology ensures precise gas recognition, eliminating the potential for false alarms, which is a pain point with other gas detection technologies.
  • Methane spikes are labeled and geolocated.
  • Area/field methane mapping (+2 ppm) is produced.

AIRS3: Keep Your Data, Reporting, and Tracking in One Place

Go beyond data collection with critical insights that create actionable results. Our team of trained pilots leverage the latest sensor technologies to ensure a comprehensive, timely, and accurate evaluation of your assets. Using our proprietary AIRS3 software, you can manage your assets from a single location. AIRS3 enables you to quickly and easily view geo-referenced anomalies such as leaks, cracks, exposed pipe, and third party activity in near real time, and be immediately notified when there is an emergency; track time and progress; and download compliant reports for regulators.

Why Drones Are Disrupting
the Oil & Gas Industry

Inspections are non-negotiable, but you don’t have to break the bank to meet regulatory requirements. Our oil & gas inspection services integrate traditional piloted aircraft with remotely piloted / autonomous aerial systems into your existing workflows to significantly reduce ongoing inspection and monitoring costs, all while improving data accuracy and optimizing safety.

Our integrated drone solutions easily navigate through complex assets and dangerous terrains, such as pipelines or offshore rigs. Capture high-resolution imagery, thermal imaging, and gas detection data from a safe distance while simultaneously providing geo-located data on the exact location and nature of potential hazards. Through drone-provided data collection, workers have instant access to the information needed to quickly and safely repair damaged assets while reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.

Reduce Scope 3 Greenhouse Gas Emissions with Green Technologies

By integrating greener, remotely operated, technologies into our data collection practices, we can provide clients with a material reduction in Scope 3 greenhouse gas emissions without impacting quality of data or service.


Boreal Methane Gas Detection

Using a portable aircraft-mounted system that couples a gas analysis probe with GPS technology, Volatus Aerospace uses a mobile system for precise leak detection that allows for the quick identification of critical issues

Optical Gas Detection

Using a UAV-mounted optical gas imager (OGI), quickly view gas leaks and areas of potential hazards.

Corridor / Right-of-Way inspections

Our team of pilots survey over 1.5 million kilometers of pipeline right of way a year utilizing the most up-to-date data collection methods and procedures to provide regulatory-compliant reporting to our clients.

Lidar Mapping

Use lidar mapping to penetrate to ground level to quickly identify and map potential damage to pipelines, including land degradation, erosion, and geological movement.
