Rig Counts and a Very Cool Web Tool

The weekly survey of active rigs by Baker Hughes shows that the U.S. rig count is up this week by 4 to 1,043. It is still down 787 rigs from this time last year.

On the cool tool side, Baker Hughes has an interactive GIS tool that lets you zoom into any region of North America and see the active rigs. You can drill down by pressing the information button and get the specifics on the drilling project. Very neat.
