HUVR & ExxonMobil
HUVR has been working with ExxonMobil for the past 2 years to help them put in place a global Digital Reporting and Analytics platform for drone inspection programs.
Supermajor Oil Company
This supermajor is the largest oil & gas company in the world. For 135 years they have helped provide energy to the world’s growing economy. This supermajor currently operates 37 refineries in 21 countries. Their goal is to apply next-generation asset inspection technologies to help safely and responsibly meet the world’s growing needs for energy and high-quality chemical products.
This supermajor was struggling to integrate drone-based inspection into their corporate business practices. Every site had a different concept of how to integrate drones and how to store the data. As a result, there was no global standard for inspection techniques, procedures and data integrity. They needed a global solution that was flexible enough to meet the needs of the individual sites, yet comprehensive and simple for their individual sites to use.
