Rig Counts Down Slightly

The Baker Hughes weekly rig count revealed little change from the previous week. For the U.S. the count was down one well to 1,040. In terms of type, vertical rigs were down three and horizontal rigs were up two. By target, oil rigs were up four and gas rigs were down five.

In the Haynesville region of east Texas and north Louisiana, the count dropped by one, that rig being in Louisiana, to 152. The north Louisiana rig count still represents 15.0% of the total gas rigs deployed in the U.S.
