Our Client & Their Goals
Our Client, a service provider with operations in the oil & gas sector, was looking to expand their services with innovative drone-based infrastructure monitoring solutions. The market for remotely inspecting infrastructure using drones is growing quickly, but monitoring pipelines used by the oil & gas industry with drones is still uncommon, and regulatory standards vary internationally.
Before attempting to develop drone-based pipeline monitoring services, our Client wanted to determine the commercial feasibility of this proposed application, and identify the markets that would be easiest to enter. Our Client needed to identify any relevant limitations of drone technologies and region-specific regulations that would prevent the development or commercialisation of these new services. If our feasibility assessment confirmed that their proposed venture would be successful, they also wanted a complete plan for services that would establish them as the leader in this segment.
Since our Client had no experience with drone technology, they recognised they needed expert assistance in exploring and assessing their plan’s feasibility. We helped our Client achieve their goal by selecting the legal and technical experts necessary evaluate the feasibility of their drone-based service strategy.
