Cyberhawk has secured a five-year contract with a global LNG producer “for the provision of drone inspection, surveying and data visualisation services”.
Chris Fleming, CEO at Cyberhawk, said: “This agreement is testament to the high standard of work that Cyberhawk has been delivering in the Middle East region for the past 10 years. By working closely with the client and local authorities, we were able to obtain the Minister of Interiors permit to fly in-country. Our aviation and oil and gas pedigree were an integral part of the selection process and we are extremely proud our track record has been recognised.”
The contract with the state-owned oil and gas company was secured by Manweir LLC, Cyberhawk’s local partner, which is working closely with the technology firm to build a strong regional presence and establish in country value for local operators. The agreement allows any local energy operator to enlist Cyberhawk’s technology solutions through this contract.
Cyberhawk said it will focus on collecting engineering-grade inspection data from oil and gas assets in the Middle East, onshore and offshore, which will be delivered as detailed inspection reports via the company’s drone data visualisation software, iHawk.
It said iHawk allows asset teams to view up-to-date, visual data securely in the cloud. The software improves asset management and decision-making by allowing managers to intuitively access inspection data that highlights where they can monitor defects and degradation, before deciding what action should be taken and when.
Fleming added: “We want to show our client and key regions in the Middle East how drone and visual data technologies can be leveraged to perform remote inspections and digitise assets. This is an extremely exciting partnership, where knowledge will be shared to benefit the local economy and businesses and allow oil and gas producers to thrive in the new digital era.”
