U.S. Rig Count: +35 to 1,640

The weekly Baker Hughes rig count showed a 35 rig increase this week in the U.S., bringing the total number of working rigs to 1,640.  The big increase was in oil rigs, which jumped 25 to 636.  Gas rigs increased as well, up nine to 992.  Directional rigs were up one to 12.  By type, vertical rigs were up 27, horizontal rigs were up seven and directional rigs were up one.

In the Haynesville region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count dropped by five to 206, with the entire decrease coming in north Louisiana.

A detailed Haynesville Shale rig count will be published late today or tomorrow.
