The potential benefits of UAS operations within the oil and gas industry are great. For example, UAS can be used to inspect and monitor equipment and facilities, or to assess and evaluate emergency situations from different perspectives. By utilizing UAS, the need for human personnel to directly undertake such potentially hazardous activities is greatly reduced, if not eliminated. However, the use of UAS by unauthorized operators or for unauthorized operations also presents critical safety, privacy, and security risks to the oil and gas industry.

Join these panelists as they discuss positive use cases, policy and technology developments, and emerging security concerns surrounding UAS use in the oil and gas industry.
