Methodology Behind the Measurements

To determine individual tank storage levels, Genscape measures the elevation of the roof in floating tanks using pictures in the visual spectrum. Infrared images are used 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 take place on Thursdays to correspond to EIA reporting periods, allowing for direct comparison of inventory levels.
