Rig Count Generally Up

The national Baker Hughes rig count showed a weekly increase of 34 rigs to 1,282.  Of the past 32 weeks, 28 have shown an increase in U.S. rig count.  Of this week's increase, 22 of the rigs are drilling for gas and 12 for oil.  Sixteen of the new rigs are horizontal, 14 are directional and four are vertical.

In the Haynesville Shale area of N. Louisiana and E. TX (inclusive of other formations), the rig count stayed steady at 192, with one new rig in LA and one less in TX.

I have posted a detailed list of Louisiana rigs (link in blue box at upper right of page).  My count is 121 Haynesville rigs drilling in north LA this week, up from 119 last week (last week's count was mistakenly reported as 118 because I mistakenly deleted a working rig). The table below summarizes the Louisiana rigs by operators and parish for the past three weeks.

Your rig count is missing # 240,206 (Robertson 14) being drilled by SWEPI in Section 14, 13N, 12W. The pad is in section 23.

This is different than Robertson 23 (#239,894), which is on your list.

You are welcome. I really enjoy your blog and your balance.

The addition of rig count by parish and operator is greatly appreciated. Please continue that with your weekly update.

All the best.
