Offshore flare surveys and inspections have been a very important part of our
work for many years now. Surveys can be undertaken directly with the
operator, or in conjunction with flare tip manufacturers or maintainance
Using high resolution digital cameras and optically stabilised lenses images
can resolve detail down to individual nuts and bolts on the flare tips, making
it easy for onshore engineers to inspect the flare's condition from the
comfort of their office.
Using regular fly by inspections it's possible to spot potential problems well
ahead to scheduled TARs, and most inspection flights are made using
normal crew change flights, adapting the helicopter for open door
photography between outbound passengers disembarking, and loading
inbound passengers from the installation.
Various flare survey packages are available, including video where required.
Over the last two years David Gold photography has completed over 200
successful flare surveys for North Sea or worldwide installations.
