 Get near real-time transparency on U.S. onshore  drilling and completion   activity with SatScout. 

SatScout’s daily monitoring of the Permian Basin provides visibility into the number of frac spreads, well completions, and operator activity for 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 observed activity for public and private oil and gas operators before the information is reported in quarterly earnings, investor presentations, or via state regulatory organizations.
