Go Beyond Cushing

Orbital Insight helps traders, analysts, and marketing professionals generate insights where information is lagged, biased or even non-existent. While the EIA and other companies cover Cushing on a weekly basis, Orbital Insight offers the market’s only objective real-time intelligence of global inventories.

Oil Storage

Know exactly how much crude oil and total liquids there are in the world: Cushing, China or your specific area of interest at any point in time. Orbital Insight is able to put a magnifying glass over 25,000 storage areas to provide an unprecedented level of transparency. Combining observations from over 200 optical and radar satellites, GO Energy gives you:

  • Unprecedented Granularity – Know exactly how much oil is stored by midstream companies and shine a light on localized inventories that would otherwise go unreported
  • More Coverage – Monitor the entire world’s oil stockpiles including newly constructed tanks, providing a global perspective for the energy market’s most liquid traded instruments
  • Higher Frequency – Gain a time advantage versus the competition with daily observations, leading reporting agencies such as the IEA by six weeks

Refineries

Accurately detect refinery maintenance activity changes faster than any market alternative. Orbital Insight monitors over 85% of U.S. refining capacity using geolocation data, offering nearly continuous snapshots of relevant outage activity including turnaround crews, overtime hours and extra weekend shifts. Those tracking downstream production benefit from:

  • Objectivity – Detect anomalous workforce changes using one single empirical methodology applied across 15.5 million barrels of refinery capacity
  • Transparency – Understand the broader market beyond neighboring refineries. GO Energy sweeps the entire U.S. to inform your supply-demand models
  • Timeliness – Receive alerts on neighboring refinery maintenance 2-3 days before existing services to optimize your trading strategy

Actionable Intelligence

Orbital Insight automatically scans the entire planet to identify and track new floating roof tanks as they are discovered, enabling GO Energy to develop the most comprehensive global storage number.

Energy subject matter experts work with a world-class computer vision team to hand-mark our geofenced tanks and refineries to extract the most accurate commercial signal, leading publicly available sources of information.

Through data science and normalization, Orbital Insight translates raw optical and radar satellite data along with millions of GPS signals into actionable intelligence, trusted by physical traders and financial professionals.

Case Study: Unlocking Localized Inventory Data

While the EIA reports weekly petroleum storage in Cushing, we realize that our customers need greater levels of granularity than what is currently available in official reports. GO Energy is able to achieve unparalleled granularity of observation, looking at specific storage tanks in key terminals such as Midland, Texas where data is known only to the asset owners. Orbital Insight is able to shine a light on these opaque areas using the same empirical methodology across 25,000 global locations allowing transportation and logistics professionals to see their competitors, the region and the world’s oil storage.
