Rig Count Up

The Baker Hughes rig count showed an increase of 11 rigs in the U.S., bringing the total number of active rigs to 1,189.  Gas rigs increased the most (+8), followed by oil (+2) and miscellaneous (+1).  Most of the new rigs were horizontal (+7), followed by vertical (+3) and directional (+1).

In the Haynesville region, which is inclusive of other formations, the rig count increased by five, all in north Louisiana, to 186.

I have updated the rig count spreadsheet in the upper right hand corner of the site.  It is current for Louisiana wells only.  I counted 116 active Haynesville wells in north Louisiana.  I ended up deleting an existing well (Matthews 16 #2 - 239021) that I couldn't confirm was a Haynesville well.
