Cushing Oil Storage Measurements Two Days Before EIA Estimates

We directly monitor every tank at the Cushing storage hub to provide accurate storage data

As the delivery point for the NYMEX Light Sweet Crude (WTI) contract, Cushing is the focal point of the most actively traded crude oil contract in the world. We deliver exclusive insight into inventory, utilization, and capacity changes at the tank, operator, and location levels for floating- and fixed-roof tanks at Cushing. We measure oil storage levels using a combination of infrared cameras, aerial imagery, and our patented measurement methodology honed by our analysts since 2009.

Stay ahead of the curve with highly accurate, quick-to-market storage levels:

  • Be First: We release our oil storage number two days ahead of the U.S. Energy Information Administration’s (EIA), giving you advance notice of storage levels. 
  • Exclusive Intel: We are the only supplier of twice-weekly Cushing storage data. We are also the only data provider to detail whether tanks are operational, in maintenance, in construction, or hydrotesting.
  • Accuracy: Our Cushing numbers are supported by the EIA's reports with strong correlation values.
  • Confidence: We are an unbiased third party focused on delivering the highest quality energy data. Unlike survey-based storage reports, our data is independently collected and measured to deliver actual storage levels. Ten of the top ten hedge funds use our Cushing Crude Oil Storage Report to trade WTI.
