Extended Dataset Description

SatScout’s daily monitoring of key US shale basins provides near-real time visibility for public and private operator activity in the world’s most prolific oil growth region. Using satellite imagery, machine learning, and the Westwood team of analysts, SatScout can identify when an operator has constructed a pad, rigged up for drilling, or started fracturing the well with a frac crew. Critically, SatScout provides notifications of activity for public and private oil and gas operators before such information is reported in quarterly earnings, investor presentations, or via state regulatory organizations.
