On July 8, 2022, at the YKK Training Center located at 70A Adgama Karimov st., Atyrau, AARDVARK demonstrated new technologies for industrial inspections using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The participants of this event can get acquainted with the main trends in industrial inspections in the global UAV industry, the regulation of UAVs in Kazakhstan, an exhibition of various types of UAVs, real cases, as well as demonstration flights of UAVs in confined spaces. We invite representatives of the Oil & Gas industry, oilfield service companies, educational institutions and the media to participate in order
to discuss together the current state and vision of the future of the unmanned industry in the
Republic of Kazakhstan.

Kazakhstan has huge reserves of oil and gas. More than 100 oil enterprises and more than 250 fields of the Republic of Kazakhstan annually produce about 90 million tons of crude oil. About 20 million tons of oil are processed annually at dozens of oil refineries. All this infrastructure requires constant and thorough inspection. Most of the work related to the inspection and monitoring of infrastructure facilities of oil and gas companies is carried out using methods such as helicopter overflights, walking tours, car patrols, etc. At the same time, the professionals involved in the maintenance of all this infrastructure are constantly looking for solutions that would allow them to do all the same work with more efficiency, less cost and safety for people.

Thus, a direction related to the provision of unmanned aerial vehicle services for industrial enterprises began to develop in Kazakhstan.

One of the companies providing services in this sector is Aardvark based in Atyrau. For more than 5 years, Aardvark has been providing various drone services in the Kazakhstan market, being a pioneer in the industry. During this time, the company has accumulated lots of experience.

Among the confirmed participants of the event are representatives of the largest oil and gas companies in Kazakhstan – NCOC, TCO, Total, etc.

Particular attention will be paid to the issue of regulating the use of unmanned aerial vehicles in the Republic of Kazakhstan. To discuss this topic, representatives of the Aviation Administration of Kazakhstan (AAK) headed by the top management of the AAK are invited to participate in the seminar. All participants will have the opportunity to learn firsthand about the current state of the industry, ask questions and be the first to know about upcoming innovations.
