How is Genscape able to determine what product is being stored in a tank?
Genscape’s experienced research team has developed a comprehensive database of over 1,000 tanks in the New York Harbor region. Utilizing high definition photography, analysis of construction techniques, regulatory documents, fire safety protocols, on-site investigation and industry expertise, Genscape has been able to accurately differentiate product level detail for gasoline, jet fuel, and HO/diesel tanks across the New York Harbor region.
How are tank levels measured?
To determine individual tank storage levels, Genscape measures the elevation of the roof in floating tanks using pictures in the visual spectrum. Genscape also uses infrared images to detect storage levels in fixed roof tanks and to verify readings from the floating roof tanks. Genscape flies over each terminal once a week to collect detailed storage level measurements. Flights are set to late Thursday/early Friday to correspond to EIA reporting periods to allow for direct comparison of inventory levels.
How is new tank construction tracked?
Tanks observed as ‘In Construction’ are labeled in the csv download file. Genscape analysts determine when these tanks are completed and ready for operation. When hydrotesting has been completed and oil is observed in the tanks, these tanks are labeled ‘Operational’ in our database.
