US Rig Count: +17 to 1,535

The weekly Baker Hughes rig count continues to climb.  This week it increased by 17 rigs to 1,535, a 71% increase over this week last year and 75% off its recent low.  The gas rig count decreased by two to 967, while the oil rig count jumped by 17 to 555. 

In the Haynesville region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count increased by two to 213, adding three rigs in north Louisiana, while dropping one rig in east Texas.

I'm out of town, but I will try to get the detailed rig count published as soon as possible.
