In July 2016 T&A Survey has been selected to receive an Innovation Credit from the Dutch government to contribute to the financing of the development of the TISA™ 3D Borehole Radar (TISA 3D) tool. T&A Survey Group has been involved in the development of a 3D Borehole Radar tool since 1998, which has led to the availability of a TISA 3D prototype for detecting metal objects in boreholes up to 100 meters of depth. Currently, T&A is preparing for the next step: the development of a full service E&P wireline logging tool for use in boreholes with a maximum depth of 4.000 meters, applied in oil and gas reservoir characterization.
Natural gas is composed of more than 75% methane. There is a high demand for an easy and cost-efficient method for the detection of methane in all sectors of the natural gas industry. By attaching a methane detector to a drone, the inspected route can be tracked with coordinates and gas concentration. This way methane leaks can be detected safely, quickly and accurately.
