This training will also touch on a new practice of surveillance related to unmanned aircraft (Drones) and their benefits for pipeline surveillance. The use of drones is highly expected to increase in the oil and gas industry by the end of 2015 where the FAA is scheduled to release needed regulations for use. Patriot plans to be one of the first out of the gate with implementing this popular method of patrol to help pipeline contractors, gas companies, and on and off shore drilling rigs enhance their inspection and project development. The use of this technology is endless when discussing pipeline security, right-of-way surveillance, tank inspection, and well pad/ rig integrity inspections.

Training is innovative and hands on. Material developed for training comes from pipeline construction and operation experience and is best implemented as a joint inspection of the pipeline system.
