U.S. Rig Count: +6 to 1,782

The weekly Baker Hughes U.S. rig count showed a six rig increase, bringing the total to 1,782.  Oil rigs were up nine to 886, gas rigs were down two to 889 and miscellaneous rigs were down one to seven.  By type, vertical rigs were up 12, directional rigs were up two and horizontal rigs were down eight.

In the Haynesville Shale region, inclusive of other formations, the count was up two to 165.  East Texas was up two to 50, while Louisiana held at 115.

The detailed Haynesville rig count will be available late this afternoon (I'm getting something of a late start).
