Drones becoming integral to oil and gas operations as companies target efficiency gains, says GlobalData

A drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle that can be deployed in numerous different sectors. With strong advances in technology in recent years, drones are increasingly used to perform integral roles in the industry. Most notably, however, drones are frequently used in military airborne missions, alongside ground vehicles, to provide a strategic advantage.

In recent years, drones have been introduced into the oil and gas industry. As a result of the rapid advances in drone capabilities, the falling cost of hardware and easing government regulations, drones are steadily undergoing a digital transformation through the use of sensors, cloud computing and the Internet of Things (IoT).

Recent developments allow drones to be deployed in a wider range of settings
