Published by Aimee Knight,
SkyX, a leading provider of aerial data solutions for infrastructure asset companies globally and E’kabel, experts on energy and data transmission solutions, have partnered to deliver a unique aerial data solution to Latin American oil and gas companies.
The SkyX – E’kabel solution has already been adopted by a leading oil and gas company in Latin America. Acquisition of high-quality aerial data using Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) on a weekly basis is underway for a pipeline spanning more than 1100 km (700 miles) across vast terrain in difficult to access areas spanning multiple climates, from desert to mountains to the rainforest.
The data acquired is being processed and analysed using SkyX’s SkyVision software, where the customer can easily view and monitor areas of interest and detect changes over time. The on-site technology integration is being led by E’kabel’s oil and gas field experts.
“We’re proud to be partnered with such a reputable company as E’kabel with a strong footprint across the Americas and in the oil & gas industry. We look forward to a long, successful partnership. With our innovative, systematic, aerial monitoring solution and E’kabel’s strong local reputation, oil and gas industry expertise and additional solutions, our mutual customers will finally be able to safely detect changes in ground movement, observe security concerns, and identify other issues known to disrupt pipeline operations. Most importantly, they’ll be better equipped to make proactive decisions that keep the people of Latin America safe and protect the environment,” says Didi Horn, SkyX’s founder and CEO.
“Changes in terrain, climate, and ecosystems across Latin America are driving the need for oil and gas companies to adopt more sophisticated, innovative methods to better inspect and monitor their assets and how surrounding forces affect them,” says Rafael Chirinos, Country Manager of E’kabel Perú. “Together, we can provide oil and gas companies with a holistic view of pipeline integrity that they didn’t have before. We’re thrilled to be partnered with SkyX and see significant potential for growth for years to come.”
