U.S. Rig Count: +1 to 1,855

The weekly Baker Hughes rig count showed a one rig increase, bringing the number of working rigs in the U.S. to 1,855.  Oil rigs increased by 10 to 969, while gas rigs decreased by eight to 879 and miscellaneous rigs decreased by one to seven.  By type, horizontal rigs were up 14 to 1,065, directional rigs were up one to 231 and vertical rigs were down 14 to 559.

In the Haynesville Shale region, inclusive of other formations, the rig count decreased by two to 150.  North Louisiana was down one to 101 while east Texas was down one to 49.

I'm on vacation right now, so look for the detailed Haynesville Shale rig count a little later than usual, probably tonight or tomorrow.
