“Access to data like Ursa’s is revolutionary. Clients can obtain weekly insights into oil inventory levels - a feat not possible even 5 years ago - and one that is especially difficult in China given that Beijing treats oil storage information as a closely-guarded state secret. Ursa’s radar-based approach yields accurate oil inventory measurements regardless of cloud cover, air pollution, or other meteorological obstacles. The pathways opened by satellite commodity tracking data like Ursa’s are still only in the early stages of analytical exploitation.“
