Oil & Gas companies rely heavily on dangerous and remote assets to drive production and many are taking advantage of the digital transformation in oil and gas to make their operations safer.


Advanced technology for efficiency & perimeter security

Maximizing production while ensuring safe, secure and compliant operations requires accurate modeling and real-time visibility. However, the logistics and cost of data collection often leaves teams with an incomplete picture of operations.

Percepto’s autonomous drone stations with machine vision capabilities provide continuous aerial data to oil and gas operations personnel around the globe.

Upon deployment, operational costs are a little more than electricity, enabling 24/7 perimeter security patrols, routine inspection and detection of anomalies such as leaks , and improved safety and environmental compliance.
