Terra Drone has opened a branch in Angola following high demand from the oil and gas industry.
The firm made the decision to establish a permanent presence in Angola after receiving multiple contracts from major oil and gas companies in West Africa.
Terra Drone’s expertise in drone-based flare inspection, thermal analysis, thermal leak detection, gas detection, and structural inspection allows it to provide high-quality data to oil and gas companies at a low cost.
A major advantage of using drones for oil and gas industry is that unmanned technologies eliminate the need for any scaffolding and rope access or even costly shutdown of process plants.
Terra Drone says it is convinced that Angola has great potential in the industrial drone market and the establishment of this new entity reinforces the company’s commitment to the Africa region.
Takumi Shiokawa, director at Terra Drone Angola, commented: “Angola is rich in both mineral resources like diamonds and underground resources like oil. The country is the second largest oil and gas producing nation in Africa.”
He added: “The economy of Angola is growing rapidly, and it is expected that the demand for topographic survey and inspection of oil and gas facilities and infrastructure development will increase significantly.”
