Cushing Inventory Report

Using sophisticated aerial cameras and photogrammetric techniques we make measurements of the fluid levels
in oil tanks at Cushing, OK.* We capture on Fridays mornings and delivery you the data
at 9:00 am ET on Monday - weather permitting.  This is 2 days faster than the EIA.

Data on All Tanks

We measure the volume* of all the tanks – more than 400 tanks at Cushing, Oklahoma.  Fill levels of fixed lid tanks can’t be measured with satellites.

Fastest Report

Captured on Friday and delivered on
Monday at 9:00 am Eastern Time
weather permitting. 

Most Predictive of the EIA

Our forecast EIA volume change and week over week volume change is within ~325,000 and ~425,000 barrels on average of the EIA respectively.  The overall volumes have a 99.83% correlation to the EIA data.

Accuracy Guarantee

We detect tank lid vertical movements in 10 cm (4 inch) increments – an extremely high precision vs satellites commonly at ~100 cm.  We guarantee our 12 month rolling average of the forecast week over week change to be within 450,000 barrels of the EIA or no charge.**

Operator Level Detail

Our advanced report includes oil volume by operator.  Separately, a map of tanks showing tank number, ownership, and oil volume is available upon special request.

Limited Access & Digital Format

The data set is limited to 10 subscribers making trading opportunities more valuable.  Provided in Excel and PDF format.  An API is available upon special request.


2 Days Ahead of the EIA

On Fridays we fly over the Cushing, OK oil tank farms and using aerial and infrared cameras we
take photos of the floating and fixed lid tanks. We make actual measurements* of the fluid levels
which is better than a survey based report like the EIA or API.  Additionally, we measure
the volumes of fixed lid tanks – something that cannot be done with satellite data.
