U.S. Rig Count: +12 to 1,920

The weekly Baker Hughes working rig count increased by 12 to 1,920, the highest count since November 2008.  Oil rigs were up six to 1,031, gas rigs were up six to 883 and miscellaneous rigs held at six.  By type, horizontal rigs were up 19 to 1,099, while vertical rigs were down five to 577 and directional rigs were down two to 244.

In the Haynesville Shale region, inclusive of other formations, the count was up one to 142.  North Louisiana held at 91, while east Texas was up one to 51.

The detailed Haynesville count will be available later today or tomorrow, as I'm on the road.
