Rig Counts Up Nationally

The Baker Hughes weekly rig count showed an increase of 31 rigs in the U.S. to bring the working total to 1,220.  Of the increase, 22 are gas rigs and nine are drilling for oil.  Interestingly, the biggest jump in rig type was in vertical rigs (+20), followed by horizontal rigs (+12).  Directional rigs were down by one. 

In the Haynesville region of north Louisiana and east Texas, which includes other formations, the rig count was even, up two in E. TX and down two in N. LA.

I posted my detailed rig-by-rig listing of Louisiana rigs, noting new and moved rigs, this evening.  In my analysis, I counted 117 Louisiana Haynesville rigs, up from 116 last week.
