Two federal ministries, the Ministry of Mines, Petroleum & Natural Gases and the Ministry of Innovation & Technology, have joined in agreements to use drone technology for mineral and natural resource exploration and surveillance of fuel pipelines.

The Ministry of Mines has been working on reforms and restructuring, following declines in revenues. One of the areas the reform focuses on is information technology and database management.

Two years ago the Ministry of Mines planned to collect 780.87 million dollars but failed, achieving only 27.4% of its target.
