Rig Counts: Up and Up

The U.S. rig count, as reported by Baker Hughes, increased by ten this week.  It is still down 1,004 compared to this week last year.  By type, oil rigs were up nine, gas rigs were up two and miscellaneous rigs were down one.

In the Haynesville Shale region, which includes some other formations, the rig count increased by three, all in Texas, to 140.  The Louisiana count held firm.
