- The Leader in Drone-Based Magnetic Surveying for Abandoned Well Locating -
UAV Exploration Inc. is a geophysical services provider specializing in Unmanned Aerial Magnetic Surveying. We combine the latest in lightweight magnetic sensor technology, highly specialized aerial platforms and expert-level flight operations to produce the highest quality unmanned aeromagnetic surveys available.
Our crews have safely performed hundreds of magnetic survey missions across the US, having located and mapped over a thousand abandoned and orphaned wells and counting.
Our work assists renewable energy developers, CCS and gas storage clients in satisfying regulations relating to locating abandoned oil & gas wells. We also work directly for state agency’s oil & gas departments to find improperly plugged and abandoned wells.
Our multi-phase approach begins with helping clients navigate the requirements of a comprehensive abandoned well survey. Next, we employ expert-level drone flight operations to ensure only quality aeromagnetic data is collected. Once aerial data is obtained, our in-field data experts identify all well-like targets for further investigation. Our field crews then utilize ground-based methods to verify and confirm identified targets, up to and including excavation.
We recognize each abandoned well survey has unique requirements. Our goal is to provide a turn-key solution for our clients to ensure their specific project demands are met.
