DIBRUGARH: Oil India Limited (OIL) launched an ambitious drone surveillance project at its field headquarters under DRIVE (Digital Readiness for Innovation and Value in E&P) initiative on Tuesday at OCS 4, Naoholia, in Dibrugarh district.

The project was ceremoniously inaugurated by Prasanta Borkakoty, RCE OIL in presence of S S Sharma, DIG CISF, Gyanendra Kumar, Sr. Commandant, CISF and other officials of OIL.
OIL has incorporated the drone surveillance services to curb pilferage of crude oil, condensate, and theft of pipes, tampering of wellheads and tapping of crude oil delivery pipelines.
The drone surveillance project also aims at curbing miscreant activities in various OIL locations by - enabling real-time/near real-time detection of intruders, faster detection of fire incidents, crude oil leaks, spills and hence enabling OIL for taking up a pro-active role.
"OIL is a progressive and responsible organization that is adopting new growing technologies that can be used for better safety and security of our operational areas. The drone surveillance project is a step towards this direction that will assist OIL to lower miscreant activities, faster response to security, HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) issues and resulting in enhanced productivity, profit and safer operations," Borkakoty said while inaugurating the DRIVE Project.
