Ursa’s Oil Storage Reports provide comprehensive weekly time series of oil stocks down to the tank level for a majority of the inventories on a regional basis. For many locations, such as China, this provides the first consistent and reliable data set on oil inventories.
“Ursa’s weekly measurements enable users to recalibrate their expectations about the current and future condition of China’s oil supply & demand.” – Colin Fenton, Blacklight Research
These weekly reports can be used as an anchor in calculating an “oil balance sheet”, or used as inputs in models that predict the prices of a wide range of commodities, currencies, equities, and other financial instruments. In addition to empirical measurements, Ursa provides contextual information such as tank owner and storage type (e.g., commercial stocks, strategic stocks).
“The main reason why Blacklight has been able to anticipate oil market changes so accurately in 2017 is because we are using Ursa’s data.” – Colin Fenton, Blacklight Research
