U.S. Rig Count: +19 to 1,605

The weekly Baker Hughes rig count showed a robust 19 rig increase to 1,605 nationwide.  Gas rigs increased by 11 to 983, while oil rigs increased eight to 611.  The biggest increase was in horizontal rigs with 25 new rigs working.  Vertical rigs dropped by seven and directional rigs increased by one.

In the Haynesville region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count dropped by four to 211, decreasing by two in both north Louisiana and east Texas.

Busy afternoon. Detailed Haynesville count will be delayed somewhat.
